Germany or Florida? (Answered!)

Postby lmcjaho » Sun Nov 19, 2006 10:12 pm

Germany or Florida Article wrote:Somewhere in the world named Germany or Florida. - Three burglars broke into a pet store and snatched two teacup-size terrier puppies, valued at approximately EUR2000 or USD2500 each, in a heist caught on video, police said Friday.


The owner of the store said the thieves used a concrete block to bash in the front door early Wednesday and appeared to know exactly where to find the puppies.

Police said that was because they had cased the store a few days earlier and were caught on surveillance video during that visit, too.

No immediate arrests were made.

"I feel bad for these puppies, because they are very sensitive," the owner said Friday. "The people who stole them to make money are not going to worry about how to care for them, which they can easily die."

Surveillance video of the heist showed a white truck backed up close to the store as two of the men rushed straight to the rear, where the high-priced puppies were in a display window. In a matter of minutes, the men walked away with male and female purebreds.

The owner showed the police another video of what appeared to be the same men visiting the shop during store hours Monday with their eyes set on the puppies. The video showed one of the men playing with a dog, and a clerk warning the man after he had slipped through the marked "employees-only" door to get a closer look.

"They came a few days ago and cased out the store," a police spokesman said. "They figured out where the merchandise was. They found out specifically what room they were in, how to open the cage."

Since the last one was Germany, this one should be Florida. Final answer. Playing the odds. :-b

This is harder than the last one.

1) They used a concrete block to smash windows in. I have no idea if concrete blocks are commonly used building materials in Germany, but they're used everywhere here. (Leans slightly towards Florida)

2) I didn't find one flag in the story that might indicate this happened over seas. This means either lmcjaho did a really good job of Americanizing it, OR it happened here in Florida.

I'm about 70% sure it's Florida.

Yeah finding the hint(if there is one)is beyond me. Being that the last one was Germany and most people would suspect this one to be Florida I'm gonna say Germany. ;-D

Yea, I'm gonna go with Germany on this one because people will assume it can't be it twice. Another reason too, but I don't want to influence the decisions of others.


BTW, is this always going to be Germany or Florida?
