Citizen's Arrest! Citizen's Arrest!

(Can you name the TV Show that made that line famous?)

I've just got to tell you all this crazy story that happened to Buddy this week.

Over Halloween Weekend, Buddy's boss's truck was stolen from his driveway. He told Buddy about it at work on Monday. Tuesday after work, while driving home on the interstate, Buddy saw a truck that looked similar. (He's only seen this truck once.) He called his boss and described the truck to him....and it was THE TRUCK!! But the truck exited the interstate while Buddy was in a different lane and he lost track of it.

Buddy's boss called us this evening to tell us that the police caught the guy! Because Buddy saw the truck in our town (his boss lives in a different town) it helped the police track it down easier.

I don't want to give out too many more details, but let's just say that this incident wasn't the guy's first pony ride...if you know what I mean. At least he's off the streets, and will be for a while.

Thanks to Buddy's obsessiveness in noticing and paying attention to details, his boss got the truck back!

Barney Fife used to say that on the Andy Griffith Show!

And how very cool that they caught the thief thanks to a tip from your husband. I think a raise or at least a small bonus is in order!

I love the episode of Andy Griffith were Gomer shouts this phrase. I can hear it in my head now.
Way to go Buddy the Crime Fighter!
