Seen the "Hamburglar" vials stickered before myself...they're as 
ubiquitous as the Greek-motif coffee cups in the Big Apple...50,000 
customer phone numbers (!)...well, I bet that's gonna cause pot to 
disappear from New York City (hah!).

Good work, feds!  You've caught the Hamburglar!  Next up, The Penguin!
