Happy New Year from the Snowbird. Don't forget that Michael Mann's new version of Miami Vice opens in the summer of 2006. Here's one last crime from the 2005 Miami police log:
A 21-year-old man was arrested on charges of theft and possession of cocaine after he skipped out on paying a bill of $1,408 to the Delano Hotel on Dec.16. Police said the man arrived at the hotel and told the desk manager that his luggage, which contained his credit cards, had not arrived from the airport yet and asked if he could check in. Management said they allowed the man to check in around 9 p.m. Dec. 15. Management said they later approached the man about payment and the man said he could not pay. Police arrested the man and later found that the man had an envelope containing cocaine in his short's pocket.
