911 emergency call phone telephone

One would think that, somewhere along the way, this kid learned that 911 is for emergencies only. If not, he should definitely know now. Per The Wisconsin Rapids Tribune police log:

• At 10:49 a.m. Monday, an 11-year-old boy called 911 because his friend used the “F” word at the caller.

Guess what happened next? Nothing, of course!

Okay so it is vandalism, but it barely register’s on the Vandalometer.  How was he caught? The way many “criminals” are caught, of course – by following the trail of penises! As reported by TheLocal.dk:

A 31-year old man from Aalborg was convicted for a fairly bizarre act of vandalism on Tuesday.

On a visit to the local IKEA in Aalborg, the man had taken one of the store’s wooden pencils and proceeded to casually stroll through the warehouse drawing small penises on the walls and pieces of furniture on display.

“He drew up to 30 penises on walls and shelves around the warehouse,” Rikke Poulsen from the North Jutland police told Berlingske News Bureau.

IKEA staff eventually caught up with the vandal who had left a trail of crudely drawn genitalia in his wake and reported him to the police.

Once caught, the man denied that he was responsible for all the drawings, and that his curious crime was inspired by having seen someone else do it first.

“The man has admitted to being behind these drawings, but not as many as 30. He has no prior convictions and he has explained that he did it because he had seen similar drawings in IKEA. He has regretted his actions, but that doesn’t change the fact that he has still committed vandalism,” Poulsen said.

The man received a suspended sentence of 20 days – and presumably a lifetime ban from IKEA.

Please, tell me you did not just shoplift while carrying coke in your purse.  As reported by Northwest Florida Daily News:

A Walmart Asset Protection Associate became suspicious of the woman, identified as Tammy Sarah King, around 2:30 p.m. on July 31 because she was “constantly twitching and looking over her shoulder,” according to the arrest report. The associate watched her place several grocery items in her cart.

She then tried to hide the items, worth $313.60, under an air filter before walking out of the store, the report said. She was stopped and Crestview Police officers were called.

King told officers that there was cocaine in her purse, according to the report. Officers found two grams of cocaine and $459 in her purse.  She is charged with retail theft over $300 and possession of cocaine, both felonies.

I told you not to tell me that! You’ll find the source, with Ms. King’s mugshot, here.

If this is the way he treats his own cousin, strangers beware.  As reported in The Brooklyn Paper’s Police Blotter:

84th Precinct – Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Two louts robbed a man outside a Smith Street convenience store on Aug. 15, and fled in a getaway car driven by the victim’s cousin, cops say.

The victim told police that as he was exiting the store near Warren Street around 10 pm, two men approached him, one with something that looked like a gun under his clothes.

The victim surrendered his phone to the miscreants, only to see the pair flee in a blue Jeep driven by his own cousin, according to a report.

Um, sorry cuz? On a positive note, the police have a line on at least one of the suspects!

Arguments can start over the most absurd things.  Somewhere out there, beyond the absurd things, there’s this, as reported in the Police Blotter of The Moultrie News:

Police were called to a couple’s hotel room due to a verbal argument. The female told police the argument started because her boyfriend “farted on her” and she became angry. She said her boyfriend started to argue with her and yell loudly, according to the report. The boyfriend was questioned and he told police his girlfriend farted on him once and so he farted twice back on her, the report said.

The boyfriend then left the room because he didn’t want any additional problems.

The couple calmed down and decided to drive home rather than stay at the hotel any longer.

Hopefully the car windows were open!

fish

Sure thing dude. My house is your house! No, the homeowner wouldn’t have said that, because she had no idea who the guy was! As reported by The Salina Journal (salina.com):

A burglar apparently got a case of the munchies after breaking into a house in the 700 block of North Seventh Street on Tuesday afternoon, and — possibly even more bizarre — he argued with the occupant and refused to leave once she returned home.

Capt. Mike Sweeney said Luella Garrett, 52, returned to her home about 3:10 p.m. to find a stranger sitting on her couch. She called 911 to report the incident, telling the dispatcher that the man refused to leave, Sweeney said.

Sweeney said officers responding to the call found empty boxes of Cap’n Crunch cereal and Crunch ‘n Munch popcorn in the kitchen trash can. Also, a Brillo pad was missing, and two betta fish were found dead in the bottom of an empty fish tank.

Maurice Scott, 30, who was still at the house when officers arrived, initially gave police a false name. He was arrested on charges of aggravated burglary, interference with a law enforcement officer, theft, animal cruelty and damage to property.

Sweeney said Scott allegedly went to the front door of the house but discovered it was locked. He allegedly took off his shoes and opened a window so he could climb inside. A bedroom door was broken open, causing $50 in damage.

The cereal, popcorn, fish and Brillo pad were valued at a total of $27.

The fish? Man, that’s just mean! (Stole that from Lee Marvin in “Payback.”) Here’s the source.

gun handgun shot shooting

First this man gets shot just for going to church? (So he wasn’t exactly just “going to church.”) Then, he gets busted for being in a Burger King? (So it was a little after closing?) As reported by khou.com:

A man [who] was shot and wounded by a church pastor last week after allegedly breaking into a Baytown church is now accused of breaking into a Burger King.

Lee Marvin Blue, 27, was shot in the right shoulder and taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital. Police say that after his surgery, Blue walked out of the hospital.

Shortly before 4 a.m. Monday, police were called to the Burger King at 3598 Cleburne concerning a break in. Inside, police say they found Blue, who told officers that he needed to use the restroom so he broke in the door. He also microwaved some hamburgers.

Blue is now in the Harris County Jail on no bond.

At least he won’t get into any more trouble for a while. Here’s the source, with Mr. Blue’s mugshot.

ice cream truck

Is it just me, or does it seem like there are a lot of strange ice cream truck driver stories? Here’s another one, as reported by wivb.com:

Last Friday night may have seemed like the prime time for dessert, but those who frequented an ice cream truck in Clarence [New York] met a rude surprise.

Officials say the driver of the truck acted belligerently by yelling at kids, but that wasn’t all parents had to complain about. Police say the driver drove while wearing nothing but his underwear.

Erie County Sheriff’s Deputies who responded to the complaint Friday arrested 24-year-old East Amherst native Ryan Duff. They say following investigation, they realized he was driving high on drugs through the Emily Court neighborhood.

While in police custody, officers say he refused to cooperate with testing, and a drug recognition expert made the final determination that he was under the influence. .

Police charged Duff with DWI-drugs and others charges, then released him to a sober driver.

He’s scheduled to return to Clarence Town Court on Aug. 25.

Yikes. You’ll find the source here.

doughnuts

People say the darnedest things! Take this New Jersey gent. (Too late – the cops already did.) As reported by NJ Advance Media for nj.com:

A township man caught with cocaine and a loaded handgun tried to explain away the powder on his face by telling police that he had just eaten a doughnut, authorities said Wednesday.

Police pulled over the Jeep Grand Cherokee that 30-year-old Octavio Delasuaree was driving after it cut off their patrol car Sunday night on Route 23, according to Capt. Laurence Martin.

Officers Joseph Rooney and Robert Fernandez noticed Delasuaree was having labored breathing, while his hands were shaking uncontrollably, Martin said.

Delasuaree also had powder around his nostrils and mouth, Martin added.

“Mr. Delasuaree attempted to explain his condition by stating he had just eaten a doughnut,” the captain wrote in an e-mail. “The officers observed a clear plastic bag on the floor that was suspected cocaine.”

Police discovered 17 oxycodone pills and a Sig Sauer 9mm semi-automatic handgun in the passenger seat-area, Martin said. The gun was loaded with four hollow point bullets.

Delasuaree told police the gun was for his own protection, according to authorities. He was arrested on charges including possession of a firearm as a convicted felon and drug offenses.

Police said Delasuaree was ordered held on $100,000 bail, with no 10 percent option.

100,000 simoleans? That’s a lot of dough. Here’s the source.

red car

The fact that someone stole this car kind of makes you wonder what the other choices were. As reported by The Indepedent Record (Helena, Montana):

The Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information on a 2003 Red Dodge Neon, which was reported stolen Thursday at 4:07 p.m.

“The car was taken between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. yesterday,” said Sgt. Brian Robinson. The four-door passenger car, with license plate 5-08162A, has tinted windows, damage to the rear bumper and custom black and chrome wheels.

Vehicle sightings can be reported by calling 911, Robinson said, adding, “Do not approach the vehicle.”
