metal-detectorWhat is it with Oregon? Use a metal detector there, and folks might call the cops on you.

From the Lake Oswego police blotter:

“2/22/09 7:44 a.m. A man with a metal detector was seen on a playground digging up patches of grass, then replacing them. It turned out he was looking for coins.”

And from the West Linn police blotter:

“2/19, 10:05 a.m.; Someone with a metal detector and shovel was “giving people the creeps” in the 3400 block of Parker Road.”
