Register pages are missing? Don’t call 911

Typically, if our readers experience a delivery issue, they can call our circulation department and resolve the issue within minutes.


One man, who lives on Perry Street, took matters into his own hands after-hours this past week.


When three pages of his Sandusky Register went missing about about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, he apparently considered the situation a dire emergency.

The man, 38, called 911 and urged police to come investigate his neighbor, who he believed nabbed some of his precious newspaper pages, because he spotted them in her purse, according to a Sandusky police report. 

Police told the man they weren’t going to wake the neighbor to inquire about the alleged theft.

They also warned the man he could be punished in the future if he called 911 for non-emergency situations.

Apparently they didn’t find the situation as humorous as I did.
