KPD Crime Lab Was Not Requested

A South Knoxville woman put the Knoxville Police Department on the case after she couldn’t find a can of JFG Coffee on Jan. 28. According to the police report, the woman’s son wanted some coffee, but neither he nor his mother could find it anywhere. They searched the apartment, and after they discovered that one of their window screens was missing, they figured that someone came into the house with the sole intention of stealing the $4 item, available at any of several convenience stores located less than a mile from the home. An exhaustive police search verified that, indeed, there was no coffee in the apartment. KPD officers, however, found no overt evidence of a break-in.
