yep, one person takes/owns the basket

next one,

acting on an anonymous phonecall, the police raid a house to arrest a suspected murderer.
they don't know what he looks like, but they know his name is john
inside they find a carpenter, a lorry driver, a mechanic and a fireman playing cards.
without asking his name they immediately arrest the fireman.
how do they know they've got their man??

The other three were women

the other three are women only one man

Here is one for ya, sorry this is really old

A man arrives into town on Saturday, stays just two days and then goes home on Saturday.

my last offering

There was once a recluse who never left his home.
There only time anyone ever visited him was when hs food or supllies were delivered. but they never came inside.
One stormy winter night when an icy gale was blowing, he had a nervous breakdown.
he went upstairs, turned off all the lights and went to bed
Next morning he woke to find he had caused the deaths of several hundred people.
why??
