Portland’s ‘Valentine’s Day Bandit’ is Like The Easter Bunny? Elusive!
It happens every year in downtown Portland and I assume it will happen again tonight. On every Valentine’s Day for the past number of years someone puts up hearts in windows all through downtown Portland. He, she or they are the ‘Valentine’s Bandit.’ The Question is, “Who does it?”
For a long time, I’ve thought the ‘Valentine’s Bandit’ was a police officer on duty. It has to be an inside job because cameras or some random person walking would see something. By inside job, I mean someone who the police let carry on without issue or as I say, an officer.
Do you have any idea? A friend of mine is convinced it’s Kevin Mannix from channel 6. It could also be city works. They are up at all hours of the night. I have an idea. Let’s all stake out Congress Street tonight.
