Dumpster Diving Helps Solve Crime

Cheney police are not afraid to do a little dumpster diving if it will help solve a crime.Investigators say after a man's wallet was stolen out of his car on June 6, they began tracking illegal purchases on his credit card, including a belly-busting, $44 purchase at Carl's Jr."Once we started back tracking those charges, we were able to get in touch with the retail outlets where the purchases were made. Many of them had either video or still surveillance photos," Cheney Police Chief Jeff Sale said/Jeff Humphrey, KXLY. More here.

Question: Have you ever taken something from a Dumpster?
