Trashathon collects crime clues -- Oct. 13:
Students picking up trash during Clear Spring School's annual Trashathon always find a few unusual items. This year a discarded suitcase on Mill Hollow Road contained evidence of a crime. Inside the suitcase was a safe containing a broken drill bit, deposit slips and checks from the Good Shepherd Doggie Thrift Shop. A safe was stolen from that location on May 3. Pictured are students with Officer Brian Young. "The kids saw the case and opened the zipper with a pen in order not to touch anything," said Det. Thomas Achord, "they should be commended."
