SWP Files: Case #14-164751

Another entry for the Suspicious White Powder files, posted to Facebook this morning by a hasher in Texas:

Incredible Edible Spread, from DFWHHH, also works at the Police Department. After a NoDUH hash she found this:

SWP in Blighty: Dog-Nappers or Terrorists?

SWP (suspicious white powder) strikes again!

Hmmm. Looks like a hash mark to me. And of course that’s exactly what it is, as explained by representatives of the Bicester Hash.

You can click on the graphics to see the full items. The first one, the Facebook post about dognapping, [...]

Is this even remotely believable? I know [...]

Here’s a quick summary of two previous blog posts on this subject:

I shared a newspaper article about a lawsuit between members of the Sacramento H3 and a large aerospace defense contractor, Aerojet. Some [...]


Update on Sacramento

Well, this is interesting … after I posted the entry about the run-in, lawsuit, and subsequent legal settlement between Aerojet plant security and some Sacramento, California hashers (two entries below, or click here), a confidential informant emailed me a PDF copy of the actual lawsuit filed by five Sacramento H3 members against Aerojet.
