A Riddle Lie

On the first day of school at Emer High School (home of the Fighting Cumoms), it was discovered that someone had stolen the school mascot, Cory the Cumom, the night before. The school administrators suspected it was an inside job, so the police questioned the teachers about their activities on the previous night.

Mrs. Nimrah said she was out running with her husband. Mr. Shule said he was at home planning an event for T.A.M.A.R. (Teachers against Mocking and Reviling). Mr. Akish said he was home grading papers. And Mrs. Omer said she was home restoring furniture. The police immediately searched Mr. Akish’s home and found Cory tied up in the garage. How did they know it was Mr. Akish?
