Wanted: One Musical, Meadow-Fresh Burglar? 

February has been a strange month for Richmond's thieves.

Richmond's thieves are fairly predictable. Most of the time, they steal iPods, GPS devices, video games, firearms, jewelry and cash, according to the Richmond Police Department's theft reports. You know, the usual stuff.

But February has seen a rash of odd thefts reported by police, prompting the questions: Who keeps food in their shed? Can you get any cash for a cell-phone charger? And how many clarinets are hot?

• Someone stole several bottles of laundry detergent from the Family Dollar on 16th Street on Feb. 3.

• Someone broke into a house on Dill Avenue and stole flashlights, a TV, a lamp and change, between Feb. 7 and Feb. 11.

• Someone broke into a shed on Dill Avenue and stole food Feb. 9 or 10.

• Someone stole a cell-phone charger and tennis racket from an unlocked vehicle on Caledonia Road on Feb. 12 or 13.

• Someone stole a clarinet from an unlocked vehicle on Woodrow Avenue on Feb. 13 or 14.
