Hide and Go Seek
It was a slow day and I was Patrolling by myself. I heard a burglary
in progress call come out, so I asked dispatcher to mark me out to that
location. When I arrived two other officers said they had searched the
apartment and found nothing. The man that called it in believed that
the suspect was still inside the apartment somewhere. I looked at the
other two officers and said, let me take a look. They kind of rolled
their eyes. It was a small apartment with not many places to hide. I
opened a closet door and there were those small stackable washers and
dryers. It was a small closet and up on top of the dryer was a blanket.
I pulled it down and there he was. It's like when I was a kid in my
neighborhood playing hide and go seek. Surprise you're caught, you're
out of the game and now you get to go to jail? I looked at the other
two officers and thought game over, but I said he's yours now. It was
more fun when I was younger.
