A bit of excitement in Bellingham today

From the Bellingham Herald

Out-of-staters burglarize Bellingham farm stand
Five out-of-state visitors allegedly stole about $200 worth of fruit and other produce from a Bellingham farm stand early Wednesday, April 7.

Bellingham police received a call about a burglary in progress shortly before 1 a.m. at Youngstock's Country Farms, 2237 James St. Witnesses reported that five people had gone through wire fencing, taken produce, and were leaving the area with several bags of food, Sgt. Ken Brown said.

When police arrived, the suspects began running, but made it only a short distance before being stopped. Three suspects were contacted by police immediately; two others were found hiding behind a trailer, Brown said.

The five people - Justin G. Barnett, 25, of Lakewood, Calif.; Jessie K. Dunn, 23, of Arcata, Calif.; Avi B. Johnson, 19, of Fernley, Nev.; Derek M. Brown, 21, of South Lake Tahoe, Calif.; and Alexander V. Fulsome, 22, of Salt Lake City, Utah - were booked into Whatcom County Jail for investigation of second-degree burglary and third-degree theft.

The suspects told police they were in town because they were following a band that is currently in Bellingham. Johnson said he did not know what band they were following.

The manager of the stand was interviewed by a local radio station. What the Herald didn't mention was that she was in the office at the time and watched the whole thing transpire through the closed-circuit TV. She placed the call to 911 and waited until the police showed up. Youngstock's is one of the places we go for produce for the store -- a great business and really nice people. Over 60 comments to the story -- I liked this one:

Interesting crop of ideas being germinated as to the appropriate fate of these worthless heavy metal band groupies who apparently don't care about the rules of society. Makes one long for the days of the public stocks and accompanying humiliation. After the community had an opportunity to dispose of several bushels of rotten fuits in the smirking faces of this collection of simpletons, they could wash them off with firehoses and send them on their way, back to California and Utah.

I can contribute several buckets full of llama poop to the cause...
