I came across this new headline today: “CCPD: Burglars use washing machine motor” from The Corpus Christi Caller Times in Corpus Christi, Texas. The story goes on to say,” Corpus Christi police are looking for burglars who used a washing machine electric motor to bust into a retail store on the 4100 block of South Staples Tuesday night.”
The news story, while a little unusual, is nothing compared to the humorous comments added by the readers below the story. Such comments included: “A CLEAN getaway!” and “I guess to locate these thefts you have to keep your eyes and nose on high alert.”
