This story over at The IndyChannel.com piqued my interest because it's so unusual. It seems that Connersville, Indiana Police arrested a 21 year old Amish man who was allegedly sexting a 13 year old girl. When the girl's mother discovered lewd texts on her daughter's cell phone she went to police who then set up a sting operation to nab the bad guy.
The sting operation led to this great quote from one of the lawman involved in the sting when the Amish man arrived to pick up the girl in a horse and buggy.
"We set up in our positions, and we heard the vehicle coming down the roadway," said Connersville police Detective Craig Pennington. "We thought, 'Well, this is obviously going to be it.'"
I would imagine that even in Connersville, they don't have many suspects roll up in a horse and buggy. Of course, this leads to the inevitable questions about Connersville Police's pursuit policy had the suspect tried to lead police on a low speed horse and buggy pursuit. Do spike strips even work on buggy wheels?
Why can't this stuff happen in the sleepy little burg where I work?
