That's the first place I would look when stealing a cable Box. Do you think the reporter meant to say the Box was in Cold Storage instead?

@Uncle Mike- That was the wordage used in Seventh Precinct police report.

Thanks Andrew. It was a joke. More likely, the thief went looking for a midnight snack, maybe some tuna, and came away with a Tuner.
