I met a Detective Constable of my acquaintance in the pub a while ago, and he was still shaking his head over an incident he was working on. The CID office windows overlook a public car park, and glancing out he saw a Lexus glide in, driven by a well-known local offender with three more lads in the passenger seats. He picked the phone up to ask for some uniformed officers to go out and grab them but they were too slow, and the Lexus had driven off by the time they arrived.

Enquiries revealed that the car was the proceeds of a dwellinghouse burglary in which the keys were stolen, and that the owner, being abroad, didn't even know it had gone. So why did the driver choose to park right next to the Police station?

He had driven over to sign on for his bail.
