Private Property No Fishing Allowed

Associated Press headline today: "Calif. fraud fugitive caught with $70,000 in shoes."

I looked at it, thinking, which of my friends was it? That's a lot of shoes. She must have committed fraud just to get them. Or maybe she stole them in addition to stealing people's money, like, she'll just steal anything. Did she get them all at once from like Nordstrom, or did she collect them slowly? I visualized her trying to cross the border with tons of shoes in the back of her station wagon, being stopped by a customs official or agriculture inspector.

It all depends on what "in" means.

[For the Electric Company-deprived, it goes like this:
Private Property. No fishing allowed.
Private Property? No, fishing allowed.]
