        Once crime's out of the tube, there's no going back.

For the past week in Beykoz, Istanbul, a gang of four, one of
them a child, has been stealing expensive toothpaste of a
particular brand from supermarkets. The evening before last,
one of the thieves entered a market and headed straight for
the toothpast shelves.  A tip from the market employees
prompted police to come to the scene and seize the robber as
he left the store.

The remaining gang members tried to flee by car but were
trapped on a dead end street.  They continued their escape
effort on foot and one of them was captured. The two others
remain at large.  The gang targeted a particular brand of
toothpaste that normally sells for between 12 and 16 TL
(about $6-8).  The gang sells the toothpaste cheaply on the
street but nevertheless makes a nice profit.

Sensitive Sevgi A. careful to keep her distance from reporter.

A complaint was filed against Topkapi Palace deputy director
Sevgi A. for saying the following to palace security guards and
cleaners: "You smell. You won't be allowed to talk to tourists."
According to the complainant, a palace worker, Sevgi A. made
the remark in question at the monthly meeting. The complaint
also alleges that Sevgi A. practices favoritism among employees.

Based on the complaint, the Istanbul Governor's office opened
an investigation and ultimately found that there was no proof
to substantiate the complaint.  Yavuz Ozdemir, the director of
the Galata Mevlevihanesi Museum,  prepared the report and
said that it could not be determined who had sent the complaint
in the first place. It was stated that Sevgi A. had not committed
any crime, made any insult or had otherwise acted improperly.
