Another Reason To Laugh At New Jersey

By Wyatt Earp | November 30, 2008

Apparently, their law enforcement professionals are not the most observant in the country. Read on:

MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP, N.J. – A standoff at a New Jersey bank is over after police learned a “person” seen inside was actually a full-size cardboard figure.

Officers went to the PNC Bank in Montgomery Township on Thursday night after an alarm went off. They saw what they thought was at least one person through the windows of the bank, which had its blinds drawn.

The area was sealed off and three nearby apartment buildings were evacuated as a precaution. Meanwhile, authorities used bullhorns and made telephone calls in a bid to make contact with whoever might be in the bank.

After repeatedly failing to get a response, a SWAT team entered the building and discovered the cardboard figure. ()

Unfazed by this latest revelation, the Montgomery Township Police Department issued a warrant for the perpetrator . . .

She is said to be armed with a pirate sword and very dangerous.

    The question is, who set off the alarm, and why?
    We’ve only been out to NJ once, but that was more than enough for this lifetime.

    RT – As well they should be. I’m just glad it happened there instead of Philly.

    Prof – As well you should have. Four Sid points make me a happy pappy.

    E.L. – I have gone on calls where the a/c or the heat set it off. Depends on how sensitive the system is.

    Something similar happened a year or so ago in formerly great Britain. Neighbor saw a figure with a gun through the window, called the local constables, who set up a seige line for a while until a heavy weapons squad could get there.
    When they went into the house, they found a life-sized Lara Croft statue.
    They arrested the owner for causing something or other. A judge let him go with a small fine and time served.
    No, I am not making this up.
