money

This thing could have gone south many times … but it didn’t.  As reported by The International News:

The robber entered the bank and went up to the teller’s window but could not load his gun. He next tried to break the window with the gun but failed again.

The robber then climbed up on the counter and managed to drag the window down. He then proceeded to steal whatever money he could find.

The CCTV video showed the robber almost exiting the bank but then remembering that he had left his gun behind on the counter. The criminal also had difficulty fleeing when he could not start his motorcycle.

Despite all these errors, authorities were unable to stop the robbery from taking place.

The Juice is confident that, given how smoothly the robbery went down, the gent will be caught!  Here’s the source.

coffee cup

There is something to be said for keeping your composure. There’s also something to be said for getting as far away from the scene of the crime you just committed as fast as you can.  Per NJ Advance Media for NJ.com:

Michael J. Cassano, 38, of Oakland Gardens, N.Y., allegedly robbed Hudson City Savings Bank on Essex Street just before 3 p.m. He placed a BB gun on the counter, and the teller gave him $4,000 in cash, Lodi police Detective Capt. Donald Scorzetti said in an e-mail.

Woo-hoo! Quick, scram! Or at least don’t linger. Or …

He ran off, but didn’t go far, Scorzetti said. He went into a Dunkin’ Donuts at 370 Essex Street (about a fifth of a mile away, according to Google Maps) to get a cup of coffee, Scorzetti said.

Cassano then asked a man in the parking lot for a cigarette. As he walked back to his car, two Maywood police officers stopped him, Scorzetti said. Cassano allegedly had both the cash and the BB gun in his possession.

He has been charged with first-degree robbery and two other weapons offenses. Bail has not yet been set, and Scorzetti said federal charges are also pending against Cassano.

Hand holding mobile smart phone

The “selfie” craze was crazy even pre-Weiner.  This young man took it to another level. As seen and written on khou.com (yes, there’s a video):

Officers pulled over 17-year-old Kenneth Davis around 4 a.m. Monday in a truck, police said, was stolen.

Okay, he’s in some trouble.

After Davis gave officers permission to look at his phone, they discovered several pictures and a video of Davis driving around in another pick-up truck they recognized as stolen.

In the video, Davis appears to be lip syncing to a rap song while it plays in the radio.

“It’s a sign of the times,” said Sgt. John Krueger of the La Porte Police Department. “That’s just a reflection of the younger criminal at this time—they feel comfortable bragging with their friends.”

Police say Davis also admitted to breaking into another vehicle parked off the 8700 block of Collingdale. The teen managed to open the lock but since the vehicle had a club on the steering wheel, he was unable to drive off.

Davis has been charged with two counts of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and one count of burglary. Police say the pictures on his phone might implicate him in even more crimes.

Now he’s in a lot of trouble. Here’s the source, including the selfie video.

policeman police officer cop

 

Well sir, the officer might have said, I have some good news and some bad news … Per The Sun News at cleveland.com:

A township officer assisted a Medina Township officer on an arrest at 2:41 a.m. Jan. 24. According to the Medina Township officer, the driver he had pulled over in the Hills had nearly struck his cruiser while the Medina officer was on another traffic stop. The driver passed a Breathalyzer test, registering .08 percent – at the legal limit – but was cited for marijuana possession and failure to move over for a stopped emergency vehicle.

Right at the legal limit! Your author has never seen this before. Maybe they could have taken it out another decimal? .081? It didn’t much matter though, what with the weed in the car. Here’s the source.

sleeping sleep

This gent had a pretty good gig – getting paid while he was sleeping. Then, one fateful night, poof! It all disappeared. As reported in the Police Blotter in The Brooklyn Paper

88th Precinct – Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

A crook swiped a Prince Street building’s security guard’s cellphone on Feb. 3 while he slept on the job, law enforcement officials said.

The guard said he was in a chair in the office of the building between Tillary Street and Myrtle Avenue at 10:30 pm, and dozed off. He woke up at 6 am the next day to find his phone had been taken from his pocket, cops said.

Doh! Goodbye phone. Goodbye job (one would imagine).

gun handgun

Maybe this will get you some street cred, but it also got you busted.  As reported by The Belleville News-Democrat (Illinois):

A YouTube video is being credited with helping investigators track a retired Venice police officer’s badge and gun to a metro-east family.

According to police reports, they spotted two men with the stolen gun in a homemade online music video. They were able to trace the video to a residence in Madison.

Detective Mike Renth said Corry Williams and Torry Williams are wanted for unlawful possession of a firearm and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. Police found the retired officer’s missing badge and identification card, police said. The stolen gun has not been located.

The men’s mother, Tunisia Williams, of 1715 Edwardsville Road in Madison, has been charged in connection with the theft. Renth said Torry Williams, 19, resided in his mother’s home and Corry Williams, who is believed to be in his early 20s, is from out of town.

How did the cops know to watch that video? Unknown. You’ll find the source here.

ATM

It probably started with something like this: “Hey, I have a great way we can make some easy cash!” As you’ll see, it wasn’t such a great idea!   As reported by khou.com:

Employees at a Texaco gas station are cleaning up a mess after a failed smash-and-grab left behind a lot of damage.

It happened in the early-morning hours Monday along Beltway 8-North.

Witnesses said two or three men acting as customers came into the store first. A silver pickup then crashed into the business. The suspects then tried to get the store’s ATM into the back of the pickup, but they couldn’t pick it up.

Houston police were called to the scene, but the suspects were already gone.

There were no injuries reported.

Doh! You should see the mess they left behind – and you can. Just click here.

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.

sonic drive in

Before you go getting up in this poor woman’s grill, take note that it is called a “drive-in”. And that’s just what she did. This is actually more common than you would think. The Juice had a case recently involving a woman who did the exact same thing, but she did a helluva lot more damage.  Anyway, as reported by The Daily News (Galveston County, Texas):

No one was hurt when a SUV smashed through the wall of the Sonic Drive-In, 1169 West Main Street, Tuesday afternoon.

Initial reports from League City police indicate that an 83-year-old woman was next door at the Popeye’s restaurant. As she was pulling out of that parking lot, she put her foot on the gas pedal instead of the break of her Honda Pilot, police said.

“She went through the shrubs (separating the two restaurants) and struck the east side of the Sonic,” League City Police Department spokeswoman officer Reagan Pena said.

Yikes! An SUV seems like a pretty big vehicle for someone who is having pedal problems. Fortunately nobody was hurt. You’ll find the source, including a photo of the scene, here.

bar sign

You own a bar in a college town. Seriously, who would think that the cops would ever stop in to make sure your patrons are of age? And anyway, it’s not like the joint is filled with kids. Er, what’s that you say? How many? As reported by North Country Now (Potsdam, New York):

Village police say a compliance check at Backstreets, Market Street, resulted in 46 underage patrons being charged with trespass.

46!!!!! Uh-oh.

The bar’s owner, Steven J. Bond, and manager, Michael Caringi, are also in hot water.

Police say charges against them are pending through the state liquor authority.

Very hot, The Juice would think.

Potsdam police were assisted by St. Lawrence County Sheriff deputies and SUNY Potsdam police.

Bar management told officers no one under 21 is allowed inside, which resulted in charges being filed, Potsdam police said.
