Bongo set reported stolen Tuesday

July 8, 2011


A 64-year-old Lawrence man reported to police Tuesday that someone had stolen four of his guitars and a bongo set, valued at $2,275 total, in a burglary in the 2500 block of Bell Crest Drive. The burglary occurred between 9 p.m. Monday and 2 a.m. Tuesday.

It is quaint to see minor robberies written up in LJW, with obvious horror. (apologies to the one who was robbed, it is never a minor robbery to the victim). In Wichita the cops don't even come out for most robbery reports, especially if your car is burgularized in a "smash and dash". They take your info over the phone and send you the report to give to the insurance company. That's one thing I like about Lawrence, is that it still thinks, and feels, like a small town.
