Books on Drugs

I was working at the Thrift Store a couple weeks ago and a police officer came in after seeing the book box that is outside of the store. He asked me if I used to have another Book Box downtown on Broad St. I hesitantly said yes, not sure why he would want to know if I had more than one box, other than to comment that I put them on the street without permission. He asked me if I noticed that it was gone from the street corner, and I said yes, it had been gone for months. He then told me that he had it because he busted people hiding drugs in the box and removed it to keep that from reoccurring. Oops.
