SHERIFF IN CALIFORNIA HAD A MUDDY RAID BATMOBILE GARAGE IN INDIANA, BECAUSE?
It’s hard to keep up with the crazy these days. There’s just so much of it going around, it almost feels like some of it sticks to you far too often. But how to get it off? That’s how I feel even knowing about this story. A little over a week ago, a Sheriff in California ordered a raid on a Batmobile garage in Indiana. That’s an amazing sentence all by itself. What does it mean? Is it real? Is it satire? Well, yes it’s real. No, it’s not satire. And the reason why this happened will make your brain hurt enough that you want a zombie to eat it.
GARAGE SPECIALIZES IN MAKING CUSTOMIZED BATMOBILE CARS FOR BORED, OLDER MEN
So here goes. The sheriff in question is one Carlos Bolanos, of San Mateo County. Sheriff Bolanos assigned 4 officers from the Bay area to go to Indiana and raid a garage. Yes, a Batmobile garage. The garage literally has a license to make custom Batmobiles based on the car from the TV show from 60 years ago. So were the custom Batmobile craftsmen criminals? It doesn’t seem so. Was contraband being smuggled thru the garage? Well, no, not that either. So why the raid? Well, it actually had something to do with a friend of Sheriff Bolanos who didn’t like how long it was taking for them to get their…. Batmobile.
SHERRIFF’S BUDDY FORGOT A PAYMENT, WAS ANGRY ABOUT DELAY IN GETTING HIS BATMOBILE
Oh, my. There is some stupid here and it hurts. Where is that zombie to make the pain go away? Wait, what? It gets worse? How can this get worse? Allow me to explain. The sheriff’s friend who ordered a Batmobile of their own was one Sam Anagnostou, a realtor. “Sam” was first in line of the nine $210,000 Batmobiles currently in production. But he missed a $20,000. Then he didn’t respond to the garage owner Mark Racop for over 8 months. Ah, well. Back to the end of the line! That’s it. That’s the whole story.
SO IMPATIENT BUDDY ENLISTED THE HELP OF CROOKED CALI SHERIFF TO RAID BATMOBILE GARAGE
But wait. There still feels like there’s more stupid to relate here. Ah, yes. Here it is! Anagnostou lost his damn mind when he learned he had to wait an extra 18 months minimum for his Batmobile. Sure, Anagnostou did pay off the entire charge of the car at that point. But still, to the end of the line! So then the realtor filed complaints with the San Mateo police, and even had a lawsuit dismissed about this. So then he got his sheriff buddy to “help.” And “help” he did, by arresting the Batmobile garage owner, seizing files, froze his bank account, and charged him with Obtaining Money by False Pretenses, and Diversion of Construction Funds.
