Strange But True

The weird got weirder in 2010: Read about it in the Year in Review

On Tuesday, 9News reported a story about a woman who uses a webcam to check up on her dog during the day instead discovering a burglar in her Capitol Hill home.

Strange? Yes. True? Yes.

It's the latest weird story in a year that was full of them. Every year, Westword gathers these stories together for our Year in Review edition (which is available online and on newsstands now).

It's chock full of animal encounters, plane passengers and idiotic criminals that make you wonder.

The woman above, who was using a smart phone app known as iCam, called the police, who arrested a suspect the next day.
