Follow at a Safe Distance

A police officer patrolling in Swansboro, N.C., noticed that the car behind him had something dragging behind it, swinging back and forth. He pulled over to let the car pass, and was surprised to see that the object was a safe, tied to the car’s back bumper. He pulled it over, probably realizing fairly quickly that it had something to do with an early morning burglary at a drug store — where a safe was stolen. Sure enough, the 8 tall safe was from the store, and Ryan James Mullins, 22, was charged with breaking and entering, theft, possession of stolen goods, driving while impaired, possession of drugs, trafficking of opium or heroin, various traffic offenses, and safecracking. (RC/Jacksonville Daily News) ...Sure enough, after being dragged for awhile, there were several cracks in the safe.
