Indiana: Home of the Donut Crime Sprees

New Castle, IN, is just up the road a-ways from me. You're going to be amazed at the crime in this story, but even more shocked and awed by people's unique enunciation, the moustaches and the clamoring to "say sumthin'" from the back seat of a car. The special effects in this video underscore the gravitas of this crime. This is the world in which I must live, people.



Also this month:

A man who worked at an Indiana Dunkin' Donuts asked his boss to loan him some money, or he might do something "stupid."

It was a no-go.

So the man crawled through the drive-through window and stole $2,342 while on video surveillance.

Following that stellar act, he was sentenced to three years in prison.

Hey. It's Indiana. It's deep fried. It's our kinda crime.

Oh my goodness...I was up all night with my client and just got home. I was on my way to Lamar's Donuts and whipped my car around and went to the 7am Weight Watchers meeting. Then I get home and read about donuts. My client kept me up literally all night last night so I'm a little tired and apparently very very giggly as I found out while watching this.
Oh my goodness...good stuff Lidna!

We've got our own Harlan Bakery here in Harlan, IN! Maybe we should host a bake-off! H.B.'s are pretty tasty!

Good to "meet" you on my blog this morning. Good luck with the mid-life weight situation! Sounds like you're dedicated.
