Coal for Christmas?

None December 23rd, 2013

A few naughty folks in Oklahoma County may get nothing more than a few lumps of COAL in their stockings this Christmas.

No, it won’t come from the jolly big guy with the white beard, red suit and a plethora of reindeer.

Instead, it’ll be the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office delivering the COAL.

Actually, the COAL isn’t charcoal-isn’t charcoal-colored briquettes stuck into stockings, either. COAL is an acronym for Christmas Operation with Additional Law Enforcement.

Sheriff John Whetsel said criminals at this time of year target people through burglaries and thefts of Christmas gifts, so he intends to turn the tables on the crooks.

Recently, deputies went patrolling for would-be criminals in high-crime areas of eastern Oklahoma County, and it wasn’t long before the fish took the bait. At least two men with outstanding drug warrants were apprehended.

Hey, fellas, Santa isn’t going to like this. You definitely are on the naughty list.
