Some miscreant, apparently scared out of Nevada City by Jeff “Podunk” Pelline, held up the Tri Counties Bank branch on Combie Road Thursday–practically at the front gate of Lake of the Pines!
The thief probably thought The Queen of the Northern Mines (not to be confused with Compton) was off-limits when Pelline, winner of the coveted Mr. Crime Stopper award presented by the third annual You Can’t Make This Stuff Up awards, demanded an investigation of the police department after the Tri Counties branch there was robbed and let it be known that he has the phone number and email address of the sheriff.
(Now that I think about it, there’s a sheriff’s substation about a mile from the bank that was robbed. Where are these guys when you need them? Maybe Podunk can call the sheriff and find out.)
Clearly, Pelline is destined for bigger things in the crime-fighting arena. Instead of sending the Feds to Chicago, maybe President Trump should send Jeffie. He certainly knows how to throw his weight around. Added bonus: We’d get him out of our hair for a while.
