One evening, the Maple Bay police station receives a call about a break and entry. It’s at the local church, the caller says.

The officers arrive at the scene to find the burglar lying on their side on the church stoop. They’re already restrained by an… elaborate rope harness.

Joseph Christiansen stands beside the wriggling person, hands clasped behind his back, innocently whistling the chorus of Margaritaville.
