The Manchester Union-Leader reports that police want to question a geocacher who left an Altoids box attached with magnets to an electrical panel outside a Shaw's as a prize for fellow geocachers (you know, those people who try to find things using their handheld GPS units).
... "I'm so embarrassed," Lord said last night. "I've heard of people who actually make their caches look like something more dangerous than they are. Then I look at mine, a little mint box. No wires. No gimmicks. I never intended to cause any trouble."
Portsmouth police Lt. Rodney McQuate said detectives are waiting for a call from Lord before they decide if charges - including misdemeanor disorderly conduct and causing a false public alarm - will be lodged against him. ...
No word, however, on whether Portsmouth will try to negotiate a large financial settlement with him for the tens of dollars in overtime the police have no doubt spent on the case.
