According to the sheriff’s log, a deputy took a report Monday from an Elkhorn resident who was upset that someone entered his unlocked spaceship and ransacked the vehicle.
Fortunately, the log noted dryly, “Nothing was missing, and there was no damage to the laser gun.”
But the truth about the unusual crime was neither “out there” nor inside the troubled mind of a deluded spaceship owner.
Cmdr. Mike Richards said he discovered the prank after a reporter requested more information about the spaceship burglary.
