    I love this one. :teehee:

    A crook in California may already have a lock on the Dumbest Criminal of 2017 award. Authorities had little trouble tracking the thief down after he stole 100 GPS trackers along with other items from the Santa Clara offices of tech firm Roambee, NBC4 reports. The company's devices help producers track goods as they are shipped around the world. "The moment we realized they had a box of trackers, we went into recovery mode," says company co-founder Vidya Subramanian. "We notified the police and equipped them to track the devices, and in about five or six hours, it was done."

    VIDEO: Man Steals Ambulance With Medic And Patient Inside - Quickly Regrets His Decision
    13 hrs
    Jeffrey Brown jumped into the ambulance and took off with a medic and patient in the back, leading police on a chase.

    Dayton, Ohio – A 44-year-old man is accused of stealing an ambulance with a medic and patient in back, and fleeing from police (video below).

    Police released dash-cam video of Jeffrey Brown’s two-mile joyride in a Dayton Fire Department ambulance. Brown was locked up within an hour of stealing the medic unit.

    At about 6:30 p.m. Oct. 20, medics responded to a call, and the ambulance driver left the keys in the ignition of the vehicle, police told the The Dayton Daily News.

    Brown jumped into the ambulance and took off on an apparent joy ride, only to be stopped and arrested by police about two miles down the road.

    The video showed about a half-dozen police officers swarming on top of Brown after he was pulled from the ambulance.

    “What were you thinking?” one officer asked Brown. “You just kidnapped somebody.”

    “You’re going to prison, buddy, I hope you like that,” another officer said.

    Brown is now in the Montgomery County Jail, held on multiple charges including kidnapping, abduction, grand theft auto and failure to comply, WKEF/WRGT reported.

    7200 Volts And A Dim Bulb[​IMG]
    2017 At-Risk Survivor
    Confirmed True by Darwin

    (17 April 2017, South Carolina) It is tough to live without electricity. Although the Blue Ridge Electric Company says there are options for people who cannot pay their bill, those options were not extended to a family living in the Friendship community near Seneca. After two weeks without hot water or refrigeration, a man attempted to restore power to his home. Illegally.
    What happens when a powerless thief grabs a metal ladder and jumper cables?...

    His court date is the 29th. I am sure the judge will love the explanation of the Ecstasy found in the attorney's car when he was arrested.

    " Washington State Patrol arrived at the scene shortly after 6pm and found the couple - Michael G Tonkin and Daisy L Laroque - both fully naked with the woman's three-month-old child in the backseat." "
    ....... "Tonkin, who had three prior DUI arrests, was brought to the Pierce County Jail, according to WSP spokeswoman Brooke Bova, while Laroque was taken to the hospital with broken bones."

    "It was a bystander who gave a witness account to WSP officers who reported that the couple exited the car naked on Wednesday."

    Officer Uses Tube Of K-Y Jelly To Bid Farewell To Man Who Shot Him
    14 hrs
    A police officer brought a tube of K-Y Jelly to the sentencing of the man who shot him.

    Jacksonville, FL – A Jacksonville police officer who was shot multiple times during an impromptu traffic stop, in front of his young son, faced his would-be killer with a tube of K-Y Jelly at his sentencing Nov. 29.

    During the sentencing of Kevin Rojas, 21, the police officer he’d shot and nearly killed waved a tube of the personal lubricant in the air, and told his assailant “You are going to need a lot of this,” The Florida Times-Union reported.

    The police officer’s identity was not revealed because he works undercover.

    In March of 2016, Rojas had a fight will his girlfriend and threatened to kill himself. She said he shot some bullets in the air, and then he took off in the car with the gun.

    The police officer saw Rojas driving erratically and stopped him. Before the officer could get out of the car and approach him, Rojas began shooting at the officer through the windshield of his police car.

    The officer was off duty, and had been driving his young son to school when he made the traffic stop. He was hit multiple times, including the face. His son was not injured.

    Rojas ran away as the officer fired back. He stole a truck, went home, and barricaded himself in the house, causing a standoff with Jacksonville law enforcement.

    When police saw Rojas pointing a weapon at them through a sliding glass door, they shot him in the torso, leg, and hand, and arrested him.

    In October, a Jacksonville jury convicted Rojas of attempted first-degree murder, attempted manslaughter, two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, grand theft auto, and fleeing.

    He was sentenced Wednesday to the maximum penalty for each of the crimes - life plus three 15-year sentences and two five-year sentences for the lesser charges – by Judge James Daniel.

    The officer, a former Army soldier, called Rojas a coward at the sentencing, according to The Florida Times-Union.

    “I will take those bullets instead of a fellow officer and an innocent bystander,” the officer said. “When I brought the fight back to you, you ran like a coward.”

    Rojas declined to speak on his behalf at his sentencing. He also opted not to have character witnesses testify on his behalf.

    His family fled the courtroom in tears after the sentencing, according to the Daily Mail.

    Rojas will be eligible for parole in 25 years.

    Woman Caught Trying to Smuggle Bologna Into US

    Customs and Border Protection agents in El Paso say a woman who initially told inspectors she had nothing to declare as she was entering the country from Mexico was found carrying 227 pounds of contraband bologna in her car.

    The discovery last week was made at a secondary examination station and after the woman amended her declaration statement.

    The 23 tubes of meat were hidden under the rear seats of her car.

    The bologna contains pork and isn't allowed into the country.

    My question is, where did she hide the salami? :thinking:

    Deputies sit down for lunch, find fugitive eating next to them

    HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) -- While deputies with the Perry County (Tennessee) Sheriff's Office were out to lunch Monday afternoon, they noticed something that turned a lunch break into deputies making an arrest.


    "We finally slowed down enough to eat lunch, me and several other of the guys. And while we were eating, we noticed a known fugitive that we've actually been looking for," said Tony Eversole, the Perry County Sherriff's Office chief deputy.

    Eversole said Neil Martin was eating lunch at the Captain D's in Hazard, Kentucky right across from him. He said that Martin is wanted in multiple states for fraudulent business reasons.

    "We had been actively looking for him for several months," said Eversole. "He's wanted by four or five states."...
