Scanner Reports 4-3-13
updated: Apr 03, 2013, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Well it's Wednesday, Happy Humpster Day to you!!!When did Old School Go to Hell? Nowadays you can't go into a store and purchase a product in trade for cash; you gotta buy Gift Cards! What the HELL is up with that? I called Radio Shack to check and see if they had Digital Police Scanners in Stock. They have one on sale 399.00 on line. "No" was their reply, not in stock in the store. I called their 800 Number was told there would be no problem. Until I was transferred to another person who told me to go to Radio Shack and purchase gift cards then order it that way. Gone are the days when you could go into the store inspect the product pull out some cash if the product is to your liking and buy it, I guess. Does anyone know where there is a Real store in Santa Barbara that carries Digital Police Scanners I can look at before I buy them? I always liked shopping at Radio Shack; they always seemed to have everything you needed in Stock I guess those days are gone.

Someone mentioned The East Side Bats, one slammed into my hair the otter day as I walked from Belinda's house to mine, little Boogers! I heard a long time ago that there was a huge cave on the East Side up in the Hills filled with thousands of Bats. I don't know if that is true but there sure are a lot of the little Snots around when day begins to turn into night.

I have been hearing more calls out there concerning Door to Door Solicitors I just want to remind people to be aware. If you see something suspicious in your HOOD call the police to check it out, call the business number if it's not an emergency. If you're going on vacation have a trusted friend or neighbor watch your house. I heard a 459 Burglary the otter day where the victims were on vacation. A lot of people go to work and leave their windows open with screens in place thinking that's enough protection but it isn't. Times are different now can't keep the air flowing through your place anymore while you're at work. I hope those of you that rent have Renters Insurance that alone can save you some misery in case you get ripped off.
