Rapid Response

Why did it take a Whatcom County Sheriff deputy many hours to respond to the recent break-in at Auntie Pam's Country Store? Before we learned the truth, we came up with a few theories:

Deputy waits at Bellingham dock for Point Roberts ferry.

Deputy is stuck in Bellingham traffic circle trying to find exit arrows.

Deputy responds to residence of his own Aunt Pam in Lynden by mistake. His Aunt Pam is delighted to see him and insists that he stay for tea and strudel. Then she makes him a nice hot lunch so he doesn't starve on his long trip to Point Roberts.

Deputy discovers that friend left joint in squad car. Oops.

Deputy waits at Point Roberts Marketplace for backup from Blackhawk helicopter.
