Gays realize that pet mice didn’t steal the Camry

No, no it wasn't the pet mice. That's the lesson this gay Atlanta couple learned when they were awakened by a noise in their living room early one recent morning. A clue? The wide open front door.

But hey, it's early. So you can forgive the error in judgment by this Southeast Atlanta lesbian couple — about not investigating the open door more thoroughly and having mice as pets. Aren't they supposed to have cats? Anyway, let nothing stand in the way of a romantic birthday breakfast. How sweet.

Once the dishes were cleared, though, that open front door from earlier in the morning starts to make sense. Take it from here, Creative Loafing's Blotter Diva:

On Woodland Avenue, a lesbian couple heard a loud noise coming from their living room around 5:30 a.m. They got up and looked around. The front door was wide open, but nothing was out of order. According to the police report, the couple figured their pet mice “might have made the noise. So they went back to sleep.” (The couple would later rue the mice assumption.)

A few hours later, the couple woke up. It was the younger lesbian's 38th birthday so they enjoyed a birthday breakfast at home. After breakfast, they noticed a bunch of stuff missing from their apartment, including $500 cash, a laptop computer, a red bicycle, and a black bicycle with pink tape on it, plus car keys to their Volvo and Toyota. When they looked outside they saw that their white Toyota Camry was gone. The Volvo was still there. Police found one bicycle in a nearby front yard.

No cats. No Subaru. What sort of lesbian couple is this!
