Wierd News: I just can’t make this stuff up!

Copied DIRECTLY from an email sent out to all UC Berkeley students and faculty.

Ever got the feelin’ that things are getting desperate? Well, here’s your sign:

> February 5, 2010
> Be on the lookout for a “Potty Pirate”        (Who came up with this? And, are they serious?)
> Somebody has been removing brass flushing hardware from toilets and
> urinals on the UC Berkeley campus.
> To date, more than three dozen fixtures have been stolen, sometimes
> along
> with other brass fixtures such as floor drains, affecting restroom
> facilities in ten buildings.
> The items are likely being stolen for their brass content. Each of
> these
> metal thefts is considered a burglary, as entering the building with
> the
> tools needed to remove the hardware is entering with intent to
> commit a
> crime.
> UCPD very much needs the public’s help and awareness. If you notice a
> suspicious person or persons present in any building you frequent,
> do not
> hesitate to make an emergency 9-1-1 report.
> If you have any information about this crime, please contact:
> University of California Police Department
> Criminal Investigation Bureau
> (510) 642-0472 / 8AM-5PM
> (510) 642-6760 / All other times
> As with any emergency situation, if you see suspicious activity,
> call 9-1-1.
>> From a cell phone on or near campus, call (510) 642-3333.

Keep your eyes open, boys and girls. There’s a potty pirate on the loose!
