Why Take Them Off?: A 28-year-old South Carolina man phoned police after two of his rings were stolen. The man had placed a $7,000 white gold wedding band and $3,500 four-diamond white gold insert on the side of the restroom sink at Ikea. He knows water won't rust gold, right?

Maybe It Was The Easter Bunny: Police were called to an uptown-area Circle K after a large amount of candy was stolen. Someone walked into the store one night and took a large amount of candy and left without paying for it. The suspect then returned shortly after and took another large amount of candy. In other news, Halloween is still seven months away.

Don't Make Me Stop This Car: A 38-year-old woman reported that while she was driving a vehicle, her female neighbor was touched several times on the hand against her wishes by a third person. If two people have trouble sharing the center console armrest, is that also simple assault?

Dirty Bird: Someone walked into a central Charlotte CVS and placed multiple boxes of soap in his jeans valued at $32 before walking out the door without paying. The presumably stinky subject set off the security alarms as he left.

That's Shady: Back in June of last year, someone pruned and removed limbs from a leyland cypress tree in a south Charlotte yard. Police were called in March after the tree fell on someone's home. The 54-year-old homeowner believes it fell as a direct result of the pruning. The only time it should take nine months to see some kind of result is when you get pregnant.

Is He Sure About The Amount?: Police were called to the south Charlotte home of a 65-year-old man after someone entered his vehicle and stole $3 worth of change.

Blotter items are chosen from the files of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
