    Man paid a waitress for his meal. She saw her name on the credit card, Arkansas police say
    June 19, 2018 07:38 PM

    A man who allegedly stole a woman’s purse from her car while she was inside a gas station saw her in person two days later — apparently without knowing it, according to Arkansas authorities.
    Lunsford was working at Shannon’s Restaurant on Tuesday when a customer wanted to pay for his meal, Arkansas Online reported. But when she looked at the card he gave her she saw her name, police said, the publication reported.
    West was jailed on theft and forgery charges, KATV reported.

    "A man in a clown mask who worked with his girlfriend to allegedly beat and rob a man has been identified, in part, because the victim bit him, Las Vegas police said.

    Police found a “perfect bite mark” on Davis’ ankle, the report said......
    After arresting the couple, police found a clown mask in Cueva’s laundry room and a .40-caliber handgun in a closet with dried blood on it...."
    "Davis faces charges of attempted murder, battery with a deadly weapon, robbery with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery. Cueva is accused of robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and battery with substantial bodily harm."

    Police tracked them down by having an officer pose as an Uber driver delivering food to the robbers' apartment.

    Two women dressed as nuns. Their real habit was armed bank robbery, N.J. prosecutors say
    June 22, 2018 07:57 PM


    Authorities finally caught 23-year-old Melisa Aquino Arias and 19-year-old Swahilys Pedraza-Rodriguez in October 2017, when a bank employee recognized the duo from an earlier heist and quickly called police, according to federal prosecutors.
    Their first attempted heist, in August 2017, was a failure. Dressed up in nuns’ habits, they walked into a bank in Tannersville, Pennsylvania. As Arias kept watch, Pedraza-Rodriguez did the dirty work: She whipped out what looked like a gun and tried to make the teller hand over cash, according to prosecutors.

    But before they got any money, Arias gave Pedraza-Rodriguez a signal and they both fled, according to an FBI criminal complaint.

    The women tried a different outfit — hijabs — for their next attempt on Sept. 20, 2017, prosecutors said.

    The effort still failed, though. The women rolled up to a drive-thru ATM at a bank in Scotrun, Pennsylvania, and tried using a screwdriver to pry the machine open, prosecutors said. But again, they gave up and ran off with nothing.

    " Want an order of meth with your fries?"


    "A drug bust at a Wendy's fast food restaurant in Georgia led to half of the crew being taken into custody on Thursday on suspicion of selling and possession of methamphetamine.

    "When it was all said and done, only five people were left to run the shop when it reopened a few hours later for business. "

    Employees, including the manager were the subject of a weeks-long sting operation ....'I can tell you we never bought any food there,' narcotics task force commander Phil Price told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    Side Note: That Wendy's is now looking for a new store manager. She was one of the ones arrested.

    [​IMG]A man fled police in a stolen vehicle in Madison, Wisconsin, because he says his parole agent told him not to have police contact.

    Antonio D. Rowe was seen in the stolen vehicle by a bystander, who recognized him from an previous theft case. The bystander called police, who reported to the scene. Once they arrived, Rowe took off in the vehicle, before finally being stopped. Once stopped, he attempted to flee on feet, but was quickly stopped again.

    Rowe then reportedly told police that he fled them after his parole agent told him to not have any police contact. Rowe was arrested on tentative charges of operating a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent and resisting an officer.

    The old meth-taped-to-privates smuggling ploy busted at Keys jail, cops say
    June 29, 2018 06:14 PM

    A Monroe County jail inmate assigned to work release detail returned from his shift at Denny's in Key West on Friday with a bag of crystal methamphetamine attached to his privates, police say.
    According to Monroe County Sheriff's Office Sgt. David Lariz's report, the machine at the jail that scans for drugs and other contraband on inmates' bodies was not working Friday. So detention deputies strip-searched Ginjauma when he returned from working the night shift at the Duval Street Denny's at 6:45 a.m.

    A teen allegedly broke into a couple’s home. He asked them for the WiFi password, police say.
    By Lindsey Bever July 27 at 2:50 PM

    A 17-year-old has been accused of breaking into a couple’s home in Northern California and asking for their WiFi password, hours after he had asked nearby neighbors for theirs, authorities said.
    Later Sunday afternoon, police received a call from the residents who said the teen had asked for their WiFi on Saturday night and then stolen the bicycle. Police said in the statement that a woman who lived in the home had seen the teen outside her bedroom window, “motioning that he wanted to talk to her.” Police said surveillance video showed that he had moved the bicycle from their backyard to their front yard before asking for their password. When the residents told him to leave, police said, he rode away on it.

    Fun fact: The city of Palo Alto offers free WiFi to residents and visitors.

    Something isn't right about this kid. He sneaked into one couple's bedroom asking for their WiFi password. He lied to LE about his identity.
