The “Headlines” clip starts after the first commercial break, about 11 minutes into the show.

— A November entry from The Record in the Steamboat Pilot & Today had Jay Leno laughing Monday night.

During his “Head­lines” segment on “The Jay Leno Show,” the host pulled out The Record clipped from the Today with an entry about a police call on West Acres Drive.

The Record entry was from a call Nov. 2, printed in the Nov. 4 issue of the Today. The entry stated:

“5:38 p.m. Police were called to a report of a suspicious incident in the 2900 block of West Acres Drive, where a woman reported that she found feces in her toilet that she did not think she put there. There was no damage to the house and no other reason to believe someone had been inside the house.”

It is unknown who submitted the entry to the show. The Record consists of Steamboat Springs and Routt County police, fire and ambulance calls and runs daily on page 10 in the Today and inside the A section in the Sunday Pilot & Today.

On Wednesday, Steamboat Springs Police Capt. Joel Rae sought to remind community members that calls to the police can appear humorous to readers but often are the result of very real and scary incidents for those involved.

“We acknowledge that there are some items that appear in The Record that are funny, but sometimes you always have to put yourself in the shoes of the victim in those situations and not lose sight of that,” Rae said. “People call us on their worst days, and I don’t want the community to lose sight of that.”

I sent one in to Leno once, right from our own Daily Press here in Craig America, complete with a local phone # (can't remember what it was):

"Wanted- Bobcats frozen whole Please call xxx-xxxx"

I thought it was funny, Leno never aired it as far as I know.

the funny thing about the cdp boxes out front is that the one you have to pay for doesnt work, you can just open it and grab one. at least you could last time i checked.
