Fandom: American Gods, pre-canon
Sweeney is on the run from the cops again. They were surprisingly quick to answer the call and get on his case - it usually takes them a lot longer.
It's nothing serious he's done, not this time. Just a little bit of breaking and entering, and he didn't even steal anything particularly valuable, let alone anything that would be difficult or impossible to replace.
Practically law-abiding, by his standards. It was hardly worth the effort to get into the house and take the damn thing.
So why did he do it? For the thrill of the chase, of course.
