I happened to come across this in our local newspaper. Another news story that leaves me speechless.
Man discovers human teeth in new wallet.
By Aaron Gouveia March 03, 2009 FALMOUTH –
What’s in your wallet? A Walmart customer shopping around for a new wallet found 10 human teeth while looking through a wallet he was about to buy on Saturday night, police said. Police said the man was shopping in the Teaticket Highway store at 9:58 p.m.when he unzipped one of the wallet’s compartments and discovered what police have identified as 10 human teeth. One tooth – which police said are from an adult – had a filling, police said.
The male customer turned the wallet and the teeth over to Walmart employees, but left the store without giving his name before police arrived. The wallet still had the original tags on it, but police said they cannot perform DNA tests because there was no blood and no gum tissue on the teeth.
Walmart officials did not release any further details but said the company will investigate. “We’re not aware of anything like this happening in the past and we believe this to be an isolated incident,” said Ashley Hardie, Walmart spokeswoman.
Police are hoping the unidentified male shopper comes forward to answer questions. Anyone else with information regarding the teeth can contact Falmouth police Det. James Pires at 508-457-2526.
Nice looking version of the recovered teeth!!
I saw the teeth on the local news. It wasn’t like it was a set of teeth. It was ten separate teeth and they weren’t in good shape. This baffles me. I’m always amazed at the dumbass things people do. Was the toothless owner of the teeth lurking in the shadows waiting for the tooth fairy to show up?
It could only happen at Walmart. A spokeswoman for Walmart said “We believe this to be an isolated incident.” Ya think? Will there now be a rash of people yanking out their teeth and hiding them at Walmart?
This also proves Cape Cod has it’s fair share of dumbasses. I read a second article about this in the local paper and I quote :
“The mystery has whipped up a media frenzy, a police spokeswoman said yesterday. The spokeswoman reiterated that police cannot perform DNA tests on the teeth because there was no blood or gum tissue present.
Anyone with information on the teeth is asked to contact Falmouth police Detective James Pires at 508-457-2526.”
I want to know what the police are going to do with the person who left the teeth if they find him. Exactly what law did he break and what will his sentence be if they find him guilty? Any thoughts?
