Suspected Looter Leaves Cell Phone in Wrecked Oakland Coffee Shop
|Um... Can I have that back, please?|
"I say, 'I have this phone here that you left when you smashed my store,'" the Tribune quoted Issa as saying. "That's a gift you've given me. Thank you for doing that. I can't wait to give this to the police."
Issa wasn't the only one cleaning up glass and other detritus from last night's looting, which followed an involuntary manslaughter verdict for Johannes Mehserle, the BART cop who killed Oscar Grant. A trail of graffiti and shattered windows stretched along Broadway between 14th and 22nd Streets, and as far north as Oakland Acura, on 27th and Harrison Streets.
No word yet on whether careless looters left billfolds with drivers licenses in that store.
