Pardon Me?

by Catherine Chandler

“The Pelham Police Department has issued an arrest warrant for a chipmunk who infiltrated
police headquarters …  If they are successful in detaining the miscreant, officers have not yet decided
whether they will press charges.”

New Hampshire Union Leader

cops in New Hampshire weigh
whether to charge or to
turn a blind eye

to the wee burglar who
mirrors the motto to
Live Free or Die!
