Please Don't Be My Friend
Misty VanHorn, of Sallisaw, Okla., was arrested for trying to sell her children on Facebook in order to get money to bail her boyfriend out of jail, CBS affiliate KWTV reports.
Police say the 22-year-old VanHorn tried to sell her children, ages 2 and 10 months, to an Arkansas woman via Facebook.
VanHorn was arrested by Sallisaw police after an acquaintance reported the situation to the Department of Human Services.
She is currently in the Sequoyah County Jail.
Misty doesn't seem to be clear on the purpose of Facebook. To sell things she needs to go to Craigslist.
Not Part of the Program
Police say 64 year old, Michael Shepard, the owner of a community center that hosted Alcoholics Anonymous meetings was selling oxycodone before, after and in between meetings, according to KOMO news.
Law enforcement received a report of the drug dealing in November 2012 according to the Associated Press. In January and February, Shepard sold oxycodone to a police informant on five separate occasions.
Undercover officers were there to witness the transactions.
Police say Shepard talked about drug deals during the meetings. The center had more than 2000 members.
If convicted Shepard could get up to 20 years in prison and a million dollar fine.
Should we be thankful he wasn't selling alcohol?
Always have a Receipt
Police were called to the Lake Hallie, Wisconsin Walmart on Thursday because a man was trying to return a printer without a receipt. Of course, that wasn't the reason the police were called. The service desk employees noticed the customer had left a sheet of counterfeit $100 dollar bills in the printer.
Jarad Carr was told he couldn't return the printer but he wouldn't take no for an answer and refused to leave.
After police arrived he wouldn't speak to them and resisted arrest. The police, also refused to take no for an answer and refused to leave...at least not without arresting Jarad who had outstanding burglary and armed robbery warrants in St. Croix County.
Upon his arrest, the police found three additional counterfeit bills and added charges of theft by fraud, forgery, and resisting arrest.
That is one lousy counterfeiter if he is using an ink jet printer from Walmart.
Dumb Things to Say on a
And out of Flori-duh? this week....Police in Florida have arrested a man for abusing the 911 emergency call system.
The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said Gary Alan Pockrandt called 911 not once...not twice..but three times on Wednesday from his home in St. Petersburg to report his new phone wasn't working right.
Pockrandt was arrested after his third call in which he also, lamented that his drug dealer was mad at him.
Deputies said that Pockrandt smashed his phone on the ground before being arrested.
"This is a new phone," the arrest report states. "So it is believed it only dials 911 until it is activated which Pockrandt was unable to do in his intoxicated state."
For a phone to be a smart phone it needs a smart user.
