The Burglary-

It was a misty evening on Friday, November 01, 2007 when I had met my friend Allen at 220 Panama Street Stanford, CA. We had a conversation concerning  a bank theft which had taken  place a few weeks  ago. The victim had described the burglar as; 6 inches tall, clean shaven and with a black mask worn, on his visit to the Central Police Station of Stanford. The police had taken all the required details and looked forward to catching the burglar red handed. Allen had also delineated that the burglar was an enemy of one of the employees of the bank and had burglarized it in the hope of revenge. I wasn’t so sure about what he had said so thought of looking forward to the subject myself. The following evening I had seen a man; 6 inches tall, wearing a black hat a brown leather coat and with a suitcase he was walking down the street where I witnessed him handing over the suitcase to one of his mates he had a very silent conversation with his mate and I could only grab a few words of what was being said. The words were “RED WOOD”. When I had got back home the words kept rumbling through my head then suddenly, I got evoked of a city known as Red wood which was situated at the west of the city. I decided to go to the place the next morning. The next morning I had got up at 6 am and had left for the place which was so called “RED WOOD” due to the giant redwood trees which were logged from the forests in the hills to the west. On reaching there I had seen a small Japanese house enclosed with a lot of maple trees. After that I went for the house and after peeking into it, I had seen some men trading B-grade uranium weapons which seemed worth billions. I had once read that uranium is used in making nuclear weapons so powerful that it can destroy a city within seconds. A few moments later I saw the men heading for the door so I quickly left the place. The very next moment I had gone to the police station and had filed a FIR against the group of men, I had seen at Red Wood. It was Tuesday, fifth November I was having my breakfast and going through the Stanford Times while I was reading I had seen something remarkable. It was written that the burglar was caught and was incarcerated for 3 years. After my breakfast I had rushed for the police station to know about the incident. The police had said they had caught the robber at Red Wood with his fellow mates implicated in an aggravated assault. He had also narrated that the robbers were up to planting a nuclear bomb in the city to deteriorate the administration and take on power. On hearing it I was so pleased and overjoyed that I had called up all my friends that day to give them an unanticipated surprise with regards to my help in the investigation. That day was one of the most precious and wonderful day of my life! .

A rather muddy story made worse by not having any paragraphs at all save the one big paragraph. Not quite sure why certain words were underlined, except that a few of them didn't fit the syntax. Something is off with the margins also. I don't know what a "FIR" is.
