You probably guessed that this did not happen in the United States. It happened in Kuwait, as reported by the Arab Times.

Some 45 youths were arrested by security operatives for loitering at the commercial complexes in Jahra governorate. The campaign, which was conducted upon the directives of Jahra Security Chief Major General Ibrahim Al-Tarrah, resulted in the arrest of three juvenile for throwing stones at the lamp posts, with five other individuals involved in criminal and civil offenses. All suspects were referred to the concerned authorities.

In what is clearly a cautionary tale for fisherman, especially those anywhere close to Kuwaiti waters, comes this report from The Arab Times:

An unidentified Iraqi fisherman who was arrested by the Kuwaiti authorities on suspicion after he was caught inside Kuwait’s territorial waters has been released after two years in police custody, reports Al-Shahed daily.
Director of the Sindabad Fishermen Society which is based in Fao, Badran Essa, said the fisherman was handed over to the Iraqi authorities at the Safwan border post.

Um, sorry about that. Just had to check out your story … Not cool at all, Kuwaiti authorities.

nude naked

When you’re naked, you are extremely vulnerable.  Clearly you’re even more vulnerable when you are in the shower.  A Houston woman was in just such a position when she heard a sound. Uh-oh. Per khou.com:

“I was showering and I heard banging and it sounded like construction being done on the house,” she explained. “I seen a guy punching with a glove and another guy was kicking at the same time. Immediately I knew what they were gonna do and my first reaction was find safety.”

What she didn’t manage to find was a towel or clothing of any kind. She did locate her keys and cell phone and slithered naked to the garage.

Whew.

“I let the garage up and started the car,” she recalled. ” I prayed and was like Lord please just let me get out safely.”

With that, she kicked it in reverse and somehow left her house unseen and unheard.

“Right after I got my first goal done I had a second goal and the second goal was to catch them,” she said.

So instead of driving as far from the house as she could, she called 9-1-1 and drove back around.

Gonna get you, suckas.

“I came back and got their license plate,” she said. “I had a full description of the car before I left but I came back a second time just to see and the third time around I saw all four of them walking out of my house.”

By the time a deputy constable arrived, the burglars were gone. The woman spotted some spare clothes in her car and put them on.

Who keeps spare clothes in their car? Anyway …

With a good description of the car, constables have tracked down the 17-year-old female owner and are questioning her. They believe all the suspects are teens who skipped school to commit the crime.

Think she’ll give up the other perps?

Most of us would like to be young again. Okay, so most of the old folks like The Juice would like to be young again. And many of us say that we act young and feel young, and that’s all that matters. Not to this Texas lady. She went back to relive it all. As reported by newschannel10.com:

Police say Charity Anne Johnson was arrested after giving officers a fake name and birthday going by “Charity Stevens.” This is also the same alias Johnson used to enroll at the high school.

A spokesperson for the school said Johnson was brought in to enroll with a person who she claimed was her guardian and gave a date of birth indicating she was only 15. Staff at the school discovered her identification was fake and not only that, but that she had been a student there since October 2013.

People at the school say she claimed to be abused by her biological father.  School officials say she came in as a home-schooled student without any prior transcripts. Her bond has been set at 500 dollars.

Perhaps the thief was so excited about nearly completing his mission, that he forgot to steal the charger! As reported by The Daily Mail:

A gold-plated vibrator has been stolen from a luxury sex shop in Brazil after an armed raider stormed into the shop and demanded staff hand over the item.

Police say the man walked into the Brasilia store, tied up the sales assistant and then took the 18-carat gold sex toy from the display case. He left without taking anything else. The sex toy sells for $4,000, or £2,600.

Store owner Vanessa Baldini, told the G1 news website, the robber might not get any satisfaction from Wednesday’s theft.

Why not?

… the robber didn’t take the charger for the sex toy.

Doh! And if you’re thinking perhaps he did it for the gold plating …

[The store owner] said the Swedish-made vibrator has a stainless steel core, making removing any gold plating extremely difficult.

A few days later … “Um, excuse me. Do you sell chargers separately?” … Here’s the source, with a photo of the spoils.

What kind of criminal would steal a tracking device? Perhaps one who doesn’t know anything about iPads? As reported by wdrb.com (Louisville, Kentucky):

Louisville Metro Police say they arrested a woman on Monday after she was caught with a stolen iPad.

You probably know how they caught her.

Police say the iPad was tracked via GPS to the home of 48-year-old Lisa M. Johnson on Huntoon Avenue, near the intersection of Taylor Blvd. and Southern Pkwy. It was there that officers recovered the stolen iPad, according to the arrest report.

Damn that machine!

Johnson allegedly admitted to being at the location of the burglary on the day it took place.

She was arrested and charged with receipt of stolen property.

There’s nothing funny about screwing with a cyclist, as this South Carolina man now knows. As a daily bicycle commuter on the streets of Washington, DC and Maryland, The Juice is pleasantly surprised that this crime is being pursued. Per wmbf.com (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina):

Conway Police responded to the Kangaroo Express on Church Street on the afternoon of Thursday, May 1, in reference to a report of a man with a gun in a red Jeep. The officer saw four people exit the store and walk toward the Jeep, the report states.

A man identified in the report as Charles Gore told the officer that he had been pointing a toy gun at the driver of Jeep as a joke. The officer found a black and green plastic toy gun inside the vehicle.

See, it was a joke. Isn’t that hilarious? Yeah, not so much. Not at all.

A Conway Police sergeant made contact with the victim. The victim said that as he was biking down Highway 501, the vehicle passed him, Gore stuck the gun out of the window, and said “pow pow pow.” The victim was brought to the incident location and identified Gore, according to the report.

Gore was arrested and taken to the Conway City Court. He was charged with one count of pointing and presenting firearms at a person.

beard

This case certainly highlights how different cultures can be. As reported at arabtimesonline.com, in Kuwait City …

The Undersecretary of the Interior Ministry Lieutenant-General Suleiman Al-Fahd has ordered the detention of a police officer in the rank of Major for growing his beard without permission, reports Al-Rai daily quoting knowledgeable security sources. The source said Al-Fahd has also warned a lieutenant-colonel for the same reason and has issued strict instructions that disciplinary action will be taken against those who violate the laws especially if they grow beards more than 1.5 centimeters long.

Maybe he thought they wouldn’t notice? He measured wrong?

It would appear that Mr. Octavian Borges is Taserproof. Check this out, from The Courier Mail:

A North Queensland man, aged 21, has stunned police by proving impervious to a Taser deployment and casually removing the barbs – not once but three times.

Octavian Borges casually removed the barbs fired into his upper body by police during a tense situation at Townsville on Monday.

He was Tasered again twice, but on both occasions only one barb made contact and the weapon could not make a circuit.

The incredible situation developed after Borges allegedly stole a car from a Garbutt address early Monday morning.

He was chased by the vehicle’s owner until he became bogged at Rowes Bay.

A brutal roadside fistfight then broke out sparking a flood of Triple 0 calls to police from passers-by.

When a crew arrived, a bleeding Borges ran off towards an RSL retirement village where he is alleged to have broken into an elderly lady’s apartment.

As officers entered the unit Borges was alleged to be rifling through a cutlery drawer and removed an item placing it under his shirt.

When he approached officers in a threatening matter and refused to drop the object a Taser was presented.

He failed to comply so the weapon was deployed with the barbs hitting him in the shoulder and rib area.

Incredibly, the Taser appeared to have no effect on him and he removed the barbs, taunting police with “is that the best you’ve got?”

He then ran off out of the apartment with stunned police following close behind.

He was approached and Tasered a second time, but only one of the barbs made contact – which he again pulled out.

A third deployment was also unsuccessful and Borges allegedly pulled out a torch he was hiding under his shirt.

When police realised he was not armed with a knife, they approached him and after a short struggle were able to physically restrain him.

He was taken to Townsville Hospital for treatment for a drug-related condition and the injuries he suffered in the roadside fight.

Police said the Tasers involved in the incident had been sent to Brisbane for testing to ensure they were functioning properly.

Borges was charged with enter with intent, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and multiple counts of obstructing police and appeared in Townsville Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

Can a jail cell hold this guy?

This has to be one of the worst attempted burglaries of all time. It’s kind of like three guys running from their own shadows.  As reported by khou.com:

The suspects were among three men who walked into a Katz’s Boutique in the 9800 block of the North Freeway on April 13. It was around 3 a.m. and surveillance cameras were rolling.

Police say two of the men had weapons. The suspect with the revolver apparently bumped into the suspect with the rifle, causing the rifle to discharge. “Which then spooked both the suspects,” Officer Brieden said.

Doh! You can probably see where this is going.

Both men began shooting, and police believe they thought they were being fired upon. Nearly a dozen rounds were discharged. In reality, all the gunfire was coming from them. Investigators say that is what makes them so dangerous.

More than a dozen rounds! Let’s go to the videotape. (Click on the link at the end of the post.)

The video shows the suspect with the rifle shooting through a mannequin and the store’s front glass door before the both ran away.

Fortunately …

No customers were inside at the time. Two workers hid and were not harmed.

The burglars are still at large.
