THE COP SHOP
Dill Pickle Seeds?Someone used two of a man's debit cards at three stores to buy snacks, gift cards and smokes, according to a report the victim filed Tuesday.
The man wasn't sure how his wallet came to be missing. But transactions from his banks showed purchases from one store of dill pickle seeds, gift cards, two bags of jerky and a bag of dill pickle chips.
At the second store the thief bought a carton of Marlboros and a box of Swisher Sweets cigarillos, and at the third store purchases included a gift car and a Dr. Pepper.
