The police report stated “officer was dispatched on the report of a suspicious subject messing with the security cameras in front of Staples.”

This “suspicious” man, who said he was actually from Florida (and freezing from our cold weather), was actually working for Target.† He was testing the bulbs on all the red light poles in the Target parking lot.†

When told him he was reported as suspicious, he laughed and said he “gets that a lot”.
