Who’s the ink-stained thief stealing copies of the Shawnee Dispatch?
It could be an extreme couponer, lured by $95 in savings in the Dec. 28 edition of the weekly paper. The culprit also struck in September.
The Dispatch filed a police report reporting similar thefts on Sept. 28 and plans to file another reporting the Dec. 28 thefts, said Chris Bell, circulation director for the World Company, which owns The Dispatch.
“They cleaned us out,” Bell said, noting the company spent about $700 on a special press run to reprint more than 1,000 Sept. 28 editions.
