A West Hollywood tale:

1. Somebody put $25,000 *in cash* in their car.
2. Somebody *left* $25,000 in their car.
3. Somebody gave a car *with $25,000 in it* to a valet.
4. Somebody is *surprised* $25,000 is now gone.

There’s something going on here, and a sticky-fingered valet is the least of the problems.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who saw through that one. I am often suspicious of the various crime reports, but this one stands out.
