Ah, Colorado. Crisp mountain air, meth-contaminated comics books and armed robbery — meddling kid and Klingon style!
Investigators this week announced they have broken up a massive methamphetamine ring that brought weekly drug shipments to the Denver area through Phoenix, then laundered the profits with half a million dollars’ worth of collectible comics books — including some Superman and Batman first editions. The fiends! (Bagged as they were or not, I wonder if those valuable books are now worthless after exposure to the harsh chemicals used to make meth?)
Reading that story led me to this blog post about weird weapons used by Colorado Springs criminals, which mentioned a story from earlier this year about a convenience store robbery in which a Klingon Bat’leth sword was used.
Is Colorado becoming a nexus of the bizarre?
