Friday is here again and this week there were some interesting Front page stories. The pictures from the tornadoes that hit Texas were unbelievable. Eighteen wheelers flying through the air...who can imagine that kind of wind force? Amazing!
However, the "back page" news stories are not up to their usual numbers. Why, I wonder?? Are people giving up stupid crime and outrageous behavior for Lent? Is the nicer weather keeping would-be felons otherwise occupied with their gardening or taking walks in the park? Still there were a few stories that had a little merit and seemingly a lot of the stories had B words in them. Yes, a very strange phenomenon this week that all the stories were heavy on B words. Strange week, indeed!
Bank Robber is Told to Come Back
The FBI said an attempted bank robber in Chicago was foiled by a teller who told her the bank was closed and she should come back the following day. (Yes, it was a SHE bank robber, the glass ceiling has been broken in the bank thievery occupation)
However, after reading the note, the teller told the woman the bank was closed and told her to come back the next day.
"The female then left the bank," the complaint said.
The woman, who was seen by a surveillance camera, was spotted by a bank employee walking outside of the establishment with a man around 3:20 p.m. Monday.
Perdomo was arrested and police caught the man she was walking with after a short chase. The man was identified as Willie Weathersby, who officers recognized as a suspect in the robbery of $2,589 from the same bank March 23, the FBI said.
No cops, no dye pack and no service if you have the audacity to come in right at closing time. Who knew foiling bank robbers was this easy. I hope the teller stuck the little "this window is closed" sign to really prove her point.
Girlfriend is Busted for Breaking Boyfriend's Balls
Christina Reber, was freed from jail yesterday after posting $10,000 bond in connection with her bust for the alleged attack last Friday at the Muncie house of her ex-beau.
Reber was charged with aggravated battery and illegally entering the victim’s home, both felonies. She was also charged with a misdemeanor domestic battery.
According to the news report, upon entering the victims house the ex-girlfriend was screaming "You had better call the f****** police." I think that might have been great advice.
There's a Baby in the Bag
U.S. Virgin Islands police say a woman was allegedly driving with her newborn baby zipped up in her purse. (GASP...you have what? Where?)
A police statement says an officer pulled over a woman driving a pickup during a routine traffic stop Tuesday. While asking for the St. Croix woman's license, the officer reported hearing a baby crying but did not see a baby seat in the vehicle.
The motorist then allegedly unzipped a purse sitting on the seat next to her and revealed a newborn.
The woman said the baby had been born at home the prior week and she was taking it to the doctor's office for a checkup.
Authorities rushed the newborn to a hospital. The mother may face criminal charges. Her name was not disclosed.
There really should be a test given to prospective parents. Bizarre for sure.
Off-duty Bunny Busted
Police in Ohio said a man arrested after finishing a shift as the Easter Bunny pleaded guilty to stealing $1,600 worth of DVDs from a store.
A tip was given to the police that the thief was the Easter Bunny at Heartland of Mentor Retirement Home.
Molnar said Medema was arrested at home after finishing his shift.
Medema, who pleaded guilty Monday, is due back in court the day after Easter.
Bad, bad, Bunny! Who can you trust if you can't trust the Easter Bunny?
