Purple glove found at each crime scene

BOULDER, COLORADO - Police authorities in Boulder have been investigating a flurry of pot thefts in the community. Since the end of January over 20 different residents have reported the loss of their Cannabis plants.

Colorado's recently passed marijuana law states adults aged 21 or older can grow up to six cannabis plants privately in a locked space.

"Whomever is stealing these pots is a professional burglar," stated Police Chief, Wilbur Rutherford, in a news conference Saturday. "The plants are being snatched, seemingly out of thin air, although one interesting fact is shared by all the thefts. A purple wool glove is left where the pots had been sitting, so we are calling the bandit, 'The Purple Gloved Pot Thief'."

Authorities are asking the community to come forward with any information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the "Purple Gloved Pot Thief." Meanwhile, local stores are being canvassed to see if any are selling this particular type of purple wool glove. Residents are being warned to double-lock their residences and the rooms where they keep their potted pot plants.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
