Two memos to myself

| No Comments
Memo number one -- when running a phone scam, make sure I have the pronunciation correct. From the North Andover, MA Eagle-Tribune:
Phone scammers mispronounce name of city
HAVERHILL � Hundreds of people called police last night complaining about a phone scam in which a recorded voice claimed to be from Haverhill Bank and asked for account and PIN numbers, Detective Sgt. John Arahovites said last night.

The incorrect pronunciation of Haverhill was a dead giveaway that the phone calls are part of a scam, Arahovites said.
The second 'H' is quite silent... Memo #2 -- when running a grow-op, make sure the burglar alarm doesn't give false triggers. From the South New Jersey Courier-Post:
Dentist charged with possession, operating marijuana grow house
Police seized more than 40 marijuana plants, two pounds of cultivated marijuana, $10,000 in cash, handguns and rifles when they responded to a burglar alarm at the waterfront home of a local dentist.

Dr. Raymond Pacholec, 61, was charged with possession of more than 50 grams of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute and operating a marijuana growing facility, police said. Pacholec was released after posting $50,000 bail.

According to Detective Sgt. James J. Smith, at 8:27 a.m. police responded a burglar alarm at Pacholec's home at Bayview Avenue and Magnolia Drive. Officers John Sperber and Don Rowley walked through the house with Pacholec, but did not find a burglar. They did, however, notice a strong odor of raw marijuana, Smith said.
Dumb and Dumber...
