Can't hold their liquor.

after this most recent dozen i was inspired to cheat and do a laguna beach rather than a laguna hills version - FANCY crime - but it turns out most of the fancy crime was reports of 1) mountain bike theft 2) rogue jeeps and 3) guys in polo shirts crashing parties. wait, now it sounds good again.

Ha, fancy crime! I should look up Orange and see what's happening there. I'm guessing it's fairly small time.
