In the interest of fairness to unknown but besmirched burglars everywhere, here's a follow-up to the "Today In Horrible Quotes" post from yesterday morning. It was about a bummer of a break-in, but Act II features a police source telling the press that things may not have gone down as reported. Start scene:

When [DePaul assistant basketball coach Billy] Garrett returned to the home, his locks had been changed, the front gate had been secured with a locked cable and all of his prized possessions ‚ÄĒ including his father's framed Mr. Indiana Baskeball photo, a Harlem Globetrotter's jersey and even his son's oxygen tank, which he uses to combat sickle cell anemia ‚ÄĒ had been pilfered by burglars.

Chicago Police say that's probably not the case. A source with knowledge of the investigation into the alleged burglary claims said the story Garrett told reporters is a "complete fabrication."

The department doesn't plan investigate further, the source said, and are instead classifying the supposed theft as a "Landlord and Tenant dispute" and advised Garrett to pursue the matter in civil court.
