Belated RIP: "Officer Gregory" the dummy

Introduced into the Mt. Lebanon police force in 1990. Kidnapped in the line of duty in 1991. Three people were convicted in the heist. Promptly replaced by "Gregory 2". Who was promptly kidnapped again.

Officer Gregory nearly runs down a child during the experimental "Let Gregory Drive" campaign of 1991.

We have no doubt that some of you Fake Lebo fans know exactly what happened to Officer Gregory!

"At this rate, we'll be on Gregory 19 by the year 2010."
