Questionable M.O.s: Jessica Cohen, 20, was re-arrested in Cincinnati in December. She had gone to the local Public Defender's Office seeking a lawyer to represent her on a theft charge, and while there, according to police, stole an employee's cell phone. (However, she had already filled out paperwork with her name and address.)
Robert Dendy, 59, was detained by police in Tonawanda, N.Y., in November after he dropped by police headquarters to give them a holiday wreath as a token of his gratitude for their service. One of the officers happened to notice that the wreath was the same one that had just been stolen from a market next door to the station, and after investigating, found more suspicious missing goods at Dendy's home.
