Realtors were noticing missing house listing brochures and the one behind this was known as the “Flier Bandit .” There was a contest of who can get the most fliers. The prize you may ask? A bride! The Sheriff’s office was not too thrilled to handle a non-crime investigation, because it wasn’t a “crime” unless he was trespassing.
