Well, we hung around the water cooler all day yesterday awaiting news of the Big Bail Return Day…and nothing happened. Not a single peep from any of those arrested this past fall—Neelu Berry, Lee Cant, Desmond During, or John Duane.
This leads us to wonder whether Alan Alanson’s post the other day was a harbinger: were all the arrestees (which we are assured really is a word) informed that their bail return dates had been moved forward? Hard to say, but it does seem possible.
As some of our commenters mentioned yesterday, if this is the case, it isn’t necessarily good news for the five people in question: in general when the CPS wants to have a good hard look at a case, it’s not because they think there’s nothing to look at.
However, at this time we really have no way of knowing which way the wind will blow, so we’re not willing to speculate. We’ll keep our eyes peeled, and let you know at the first sign of anything interesting.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
…and it’s time for the team at Hoaxtead Research to take a wee break.
We’re not going away altogether—we’ll be keeping a close eye on the Hoaxtead mobsters’ antics, and will be here to report anything of interest. But for the next week or so, we’re putting the blog on a more relaxed schedule.
For the first time since Scarlet Scoop started this blog in May 2015, we’re taking a break from our usual post-a-day schedule (barring any unforeseen excitement) to spend time with our families and enjoy the holiday season with our friends.
As always, we’ll be poking our heads in from time to time, and we’ll be back to our regular scheduled programming in about a week’s time. Until then, wish you all a very merry Christmas, a joyful Hanukkah, and a Happy New Year!
