YORK, Pa. (WPVI) -- A police detective in Central PA has some unorthodox methods for getting information on cases.
Detective George Ripley of York takes magic with him wherever he goes.
He also brings a deck of cards inside the interrogation room to lighten the mood with a victim, witness or even a suspect.
"Information is the goal, that's most important. Smiles are a bonus," says Ripley.
Ripley says he started doing magic when he was 16, as a hobby.
He brought a deck of cards and his tricks to work about two years ago as a way to relieve stress.
