facebook

You lose varying amounts of privacy by being on Facebook, but you can lose a lot more. Just ask this gent.  As reported by The Daily News (Galveston County):

Police say a man’s Facebook posts led to his arrest for allegedly stealing an SUV valued at $38,000.

Doh!  Exactly what breadcrumbs did they follow, you might wonder?

An employee at Texas Direct Auto in Stafford reported the stolen 2011 Infiniti QX5 on Friday morning, police said.

The employee, who knew the suspect, told officers the man’s Facebook posts showed the stolen vehicle’s keys, police said. The posts also tagged his location in League City at UTMB Health Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes in the 2200 block of Gulf Freeway. Officers arrested him at the clinic.

And you thought nobody paid attention to your location!

Christopher Andrew Lee, 29, of Wharton, is charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

He was being held in Galveston County jail on $60,000 bond.

school bus

Regular Juice readers will remember this recent post about a school bus aide in New Jersey who stole lunch money – and lunches! – from a bunch of kids on her bus. Well, it turns out that’s not all she stole.  Per The South Jersey Times (via nj.com):

The bus aide who allegedly stole lunches and lunch money from 29 kids was given an additional charge of theft for also stealing from the bus driver, police said.

Rosa M. Rios, 33, of East Broad Street, was charged on Feb. 20 with robbery and theft after being caught on camera rifling through backpacks of kids — ranging between 3 and 5 years old.

Bam!

Millville police began investigating Rios on Feb. 4 after the bus driver complained about money being stolen from her. When police watched the security camera footage from the bus, they saw Rios going through the backpacks.

Upon further viewing of the security camera footage, she was also observed stealing from the bus driver’s pocketbook as well, according to Lt. Jody Farabella.

Here’s the source, including a mug shot of Ms. Rios.

fireworks

Just jumping up and down and yelling after touchdowns apparently was not a sufficient celebration for some of these folks. (Like most fans, they must not find field goals very exciting.) As reported by The Highline Times (Burien, Washington):

A resident in the Boulevard Park neighborhood of Burien called the police anticipating a neighborhood disturbance of fireworks and bullets during the Superbowl. The call went out to police on the afternoon of Saturday, January 31st. They told police that after each Seahawks scoring drive, one of their neighbors fires off “ridiculously loud illegal fireworks” but what ultimately caused them to alert authorities was when a separate neighbor began firing off a handgun after every scoring drive. Police confiscated the illegal fireworks but did not report any contact with the neighbor who allegedly fires off their handgun after successful scoring drives.

Guess they’ll all be shooting guns next year, and probably for years to come, given their youth, stellar defense, stellar running game, and a very good young quarterback (who had a bad game at the worst time).

suitcase travel airport woman

Sure, maybe you get 2-for-1 occasionally. Hell, maybe you go to a super sale now and again, and with multiple markdowns, get something for 90% off the original price. But you will never, ever get the deals this woman gets when she travels. Via kstp tv (Minneapolis, Minnesota):

ABC News reports “serial stowaway” Marilyn Jean Hartman [age 63] was arrested Monday in Florida. She’s accused of posing as a guest and checking into a resort property after boarding a flight to Jacksonville International Airport without a boarding pass.

Two questions: How the hell do you get through security without a boarding pass? How the hell do you get on the plane without a boarding pass?

After the flight landed in Florida, Hartman took a shuttle to the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, where she checked in under a false name, according to a Nassau County Sheriff’s Office.

When the actual guest arrived, Hartman disappeared. Security found her the next day in a room that was being renovated, ABC News reports.

Working all the angles! The charges?

Hartman is charged with felony fraud and misdemeanor trespassing.

You probably already guessed that this was not her first rodeo.

Hartman has been arrested numerous times for similar offenses in previous years, including three arrests in August 2014.

Here’s the source, which includes a photo of Ms. Hartman.

drunk drink glass martini

We’ve all been there. You drink to much, and you do something stupid. Usually though, not this stupid.  As reported in the Colorado Springs Police Department’s blotter:

Incident Date: November 15, 2014

Colorado Springs police received a 911 call shortly before 9 p.m. reporting that gunshots could be heard coming from inside a home on the 1200 block of Royale Drive. As officers arrived at the home described by the reporting party, they saw its front door open. At that time they heard numerous gunshots being fired from inside the home. Reacting immediately, officers moved inside the home, toward the sound of the gunshots. The officers contacted three people inside the residence. Further investigation into the incident revealed that the homeowner, and a friend, decided to alternate using a handgun to shoot glass bottles in the basement of the residence, while the third person watched. Both the homeowner and the friend were under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident. 28 year-old Christian Clark and 23 year-old Codie Leslie were charged with Prohibited use of weapons and Reckless Endangerment.

Brilliant!

squirt gun

Minnesota man Scott Wagar had enough. His house had been getting hit for 7 years. Per wcco.com:

Wagar never used to have a problem with homecoming traditions, until he became one. Years ago he caught a group of Willmar High School students trying to cover his house in toilet paper and he made them clean it up. Since then, the pranksters have been coming back for more.

“They come with ketchup, and peanut butter, and eggs and toilet paper,” said Wagar.

So Mr. Wagar decided to fight back.

This year, Wagar borrowed a pair of night vision goggles from his son and waited outside. It wasn’t long before he saw a group of about 20 kids approaching his house from the east, through a soybean field. He confronted them and asked them to leave. They refused and began throwing eggs at him. That’s when Scott unleashed his secret weapon.

“I figured that fox urine against eggs was probably equal force, and so I should be okay,” said Wagar.

Using a Super Soaker squirt gun, Wagar sprayed the teens with fox urine. One teen grabbed him around the neck, and when he wouldn’t let go, Wagar bent his finger back.

Question: Where do you get fox urine, let alone enough to fill a Super Soaker? Regardless, though sentiment in town seems to be on Mr. Wagar’s side, he was charged with 5th degree assault for spraying the little miscreants, and other offenses. Per this article, the charges against Mr. Wagar were dismissed.

no parking sign park

At some point in your time behind the wheel, you found a great parking spot and said “Wow, we couldn’t get any closer than this!” Well, you were wrong, as this gent proved. As reported by This Is Lancashire:

A driver has been arrested after his car ploughed into a pub in Bolton town centre.

The male driver of the silver discovery vehicle was arrested and led away from the scene of the crash, which occurred just after 5pm at the Dog and Partridge pub in Manor Street.

Onlookers said it looked as though people who were inside the building at the time of the smash kept the driver inside the pub until police could arrive and arrest him.

You’ll find the source, a photo of the scene, and a fair amount more on the story here.

crowbar crow bar

A crowbar? Really? The Juice wouldn’t waste your valuable time on such an ordinary crime. Maybe a stapler, a tape measure, or a soda can? Nope. You would never, never, ever guess this woman’s weapon of choice. As reported at thelocal.de:

The mother entered the store at 4.25pm and asked to buy a breast pump, police reported.

The Juice can hear the cogs slowly beginning to turn in your brain.

But after handing over a €200-note to pay for her €20 purchase, she suddenly uncovered one breast and used her fingers to squirt milk from it at the pharmacist.

Bam!

She then rummaged through the counter display and went to a second cash register.

Ignoring the pleas of staff and customers to cover herself up, she again rooted through the counter displays and unleashed a fresh spray of milk.

Boom!

Apparently satisfied with her handiwork, she quickly left the pharmacy, leaving the breast pump behind.

The pharmacists only noticed that €100 was missing from their cash register some time later when counting the day’s takings.

Police believe the woman, who they described as having a “robust” figure, long dark hair tied into a ponytail and speaking an unknown language, stole the cash while customers and staff were distracted by her antics.

Officers described the woman’s antics as “almost unbelievable”.

Now that is one for the ages.  Here’s the source.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They wouldn’t buy this woman’s plasma the other day. And based on what she did after being rejected, she’ll be peddling her plasma elsewhere in the future. As reported by news4jax.com:

A woman is in the hospital but she soon could be heading to jail after she intentionally drove her car into a Westside plasma donation center, sending eight other people to the hospital, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

Yikes!

The crash happened after noon Saturday at DCI Biologicals on Blanding Boulevard, a facility where people can donate plasma.

Police said 35-year-old Pamela Miller arrived at DCI Biologicals with her boyfriend Saturday morning. People inside told News4Jax she had taken several pills while waiting.

From there, police said Miller got into an argument with employees.

“We’re getting conflicting stories,” said Lt. Derrick Mitchell, of JSO. “Some folks are saying that she was upset because she wasn’t able to donate. After she was told she couldn’t donate, that’s when she crashed the car into the front of the business.”

Authorities said Miller was the only one inside of the car when she drove it about 40 feet inside of the business. It didn’t take long for police to arrive, as the JSO substation is next door.

40 feet! Shazam! Here’s the source, including photos.

police stop

DUI checkpoints are unconstitutional because they violate the 4th Amendment, no matter what the Supreme Court said. (Where is the probable cause to stop someone when they are just driving down the road, minding their own business?) Still, it’s the law of the land. Anyway, in this particular case, they did catch an allegedly drunk driver, but in a most unusual way. As reported by The Belleville News-Democrat:

The village of Caseyville lost a police cruiser in the line of duty Monday when an alleged intoxicated driver crashed into it at a sobriety checkpoint.

Yeah, that’s not exactly the way the police would like the checkpoints to function.

They were operating the checkpoint along with Caseyville officers as part of the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Sustained Traffic Enforcement Program.

Neither the officer nor the motorist was injured in the crash. But both cars suffered extensive damage, police said.

The motorist was charged with suspicion of driving under the influence by Illinois State Police.
