I was in the movie theater with Ava and Dean when my phone rang. I checked my voicemail after it was over and it was a message from the pharmacist at Walgreens, saying a detective from Pinal County sheriffs office was looking for me. Apparently he had found a prescription bottle with my name on it in Apache Junction.Wtf?

I couldn't figure out what they were talking about. I don't take prescription drugs.So I call the detectives number he left the pharmacist and he kept acting like I was hiding something when I said I didn't know what he was talking about. I was starting to get upset when it suddenly hit me.

I have a prescription for prenatal vitamins from a long time ago (apparently they have a lot of iron and B12 in them and since I'm SuperAnemicGirl they were supposed to be good for me). I never filled them, but then my friend from nursing school got pregnant and didn't have a doc right away so I filled mine and gave them to her. A few days later her car was broken into and her bookbag, purse, and the vitamins were stolen. But this was last month so I had forgotten about it.

I started laughing and told the detective that and I bet the guy was driving around thinking he had some awesome drugs that were actually women's vitamins.Anyway, he said that they stopped the car for a traffic stop and they ran, resulting in a home barricade and I probably heard it on the news blah blah blah. I was like OMG, that was it? He said yup, and finding my prenatals helped them link the guys to a string of other robberies. So now the guys are being charged with 12 counts of felony burglary and a prescription drug charge (over hardcore vitamins. Ha!).I just looked up the news story. I think it's hilarious. I was watching the car chase on the news. Never thought my pills were in that car!

He said I'm considered a "victim" of theft now, whatever that means. I'm hoping that's just a label because I REALLY don't wanna drive out there for any reason to talk to them. I just thought this whole thing was kinda funny.
