Have you EVER heard of anyone getting a ticket for littering? They should, but it just never seems to happen, much to The Juice’s chagrin. Well, a litterbug in New York got busted, sort of. As reported by brooklynpaper.com:
The litterbug told police that he tossed some trash in the parking lot of a fast-food chain between Kingsland and Morgan avenues at 12:50 pm. A moment later, two men came up to him and showed him shields.
Officer, arrest that man! He just admitted to littering! No?

Have you ever had a cold streak, where it seems like your bag is always among the last to emerge and plunk onto the baggage carousel? Well, be glad that you got it at all. A boatload of folks in Seattle and Portland never got their luggage thanks to these two miscreants. As reported by highlinetimes.com (Burien, Washington):
Police believe that they have identified two individuals responsible for the theft of thousands of dollars in baggage in at least two international airports. According to Port of Seattle documents, two individuals, a man and a woman were caught on camera at SeaTac International Airport stealing 18 bags in early 2014. Each theft is carried out in a similar way with one of the individuals casually approaching an activate baggage claim conveyor-belt, picking up one or more bags, and nonchalantly exiting the baggage claim area. The 18 bags that have been connected with the suspects through security footage have a combined estimated value of over $40,000. The suspects are also wanted in connection to the theft of another 13 bags from Portland International Airport valued at an estimated $18,000. An unidentified tipster helped police identify the two suspects as Kervan Reed and Silvia Brooks, both from Chicago. Reed has since been arrested in Florida for unrelated charges but police are still on the lookout for Brooks as they are unsure if she still in the Pacific Northwest.
Tipster huh? Think someone had an axe to grind?
On the way to the hospital after she was involved in a four-car accident last October, Regina Whitehead did what most people do: She called her insurance company.
[Kurt] Smith  called the State Police on Sunday at around 2 p.m. to report a disorderly person at the Red Lion Motel, where he was staying, authorities said.

Here’s a tale of smoker who really, really wanted a cigarette. As reported in the Colorado Springs Police Blotter:
Officers were dispatched on a panicked call for help by a 24 year old resident of the Summer Grove Apartments, located near the intersection of N. Academy Boulevard and Austin Bluffs Parkway. The victim was an acquaintance of the 26 year old suspect. Santos Santier knocked on the door of our victim and requested a cigarette. Angered that he was awakened [at 1:00 a.m.] for such a trivial purpose, the resident closed the door without fulfilling his request, which now enraged Santier. Santier began kicking the entrance door, eventually gaining entry, then attacked the victim. Shortly after police arrival he was taken into custody. His actions resulted in an arrest for First Degree Burglary, a Felony. Only minor injuries were sustained by both parties.
