    Oh THAT kind of "axe robber"

    Was worried for a second that the young men in my neighborhood were going to stop smelling like Midnight Vice or Galactic Backseat.

    Did the victim really report

    Did the victim really report he (or she) had four bags of marijuana stolen? Furthermore, was the victim then arrested for intent to distribute, since you know... no one needs four bags?

    It sounded that way

    A responding officer read off the stolen items over the radio. Not sure how he would have known if the victim didn't tell him.
