Yes people waste an insane amount of time on Facebook (that is, unless they’re going here.) That said, every now and then something very useful comes from Facebook use. This was posted on the Martin County Sherrif’s Office Facebook page on June 17, 2013:

********URGENT BOLO ALERT******PLEASE SHARE******* The Martin County Sheriff’s Office is asking you to Be On the Look Out for 48-year old Timothy Moriarty of Stuart. Moriarty is wanted for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. We have information that he is still in our area. The suspect was driving a blue 1996 Dodge van, Florida tag number AHP4G. Timothy Moriarty is said to be armed and dangerous. If you see him, call 9-1-1 immediately.

Lo and behold, the following day, this was posted:

Moments ago, 48-year old Timothy Moriarty was located and arrested by our SWAT Team, Uniform Patrol Deputies and K-9 Units who were led to Sandsprit Park by your tips. The Martin County Sheriff’s office would like to thank our Facebook followers who led MCSO to Sandsprit Park, shortly after our BOLO posting.

You know how the song goes: “Breaking up is hard to do.” Usually one party takes it much harder than the other. Such was the case here. Per The Daily News (Galveston County, Texas):

Friendswood firefighters responded at 10:10 p.m. Thursday to the 1800 block of LaSalle Street, where someone was burning a pile of clothes close to the back door of the home. A police officer climbed through a window when no one answered the door, police said in a statement released Monday.

Authorities said they issued a man a citation for illegal burning after accusing him of setting fire to a pile of his ex-lover’s clothes.

You break my heart? I burn your clothes. Let’s hope that’s the end of it. Here’s the source.

911%20call.gif

If you repeatedly call 911, rest assured that the police will come, though probably not for the reason you called. As reported by The New Hampshire Union Leader:

Police said the incident began just before 5 p.m. Sunday when Darlene Gladstone, 48, of 10 Harmony Lane called police and asked them to remove her 18-year-old son because she did not want him there anymore.

No crime had occurred at the residence to allow officers to remove the teen and they left, police said.

“My mistake, sorry?” Not exactly.

About 20 minutes later, police say Gladstone called 911 again asking that her son be removed. Police said there still was no reason to remove him and she was told 911 was for emergency situations only.

Eleven minutes later at 5:23 p.m., Gladstone allegedly called for a third time, again requesting her son be removed and again no crime having occurred, according to police.

Oh it’s on now.

Gladstone was arrested after an officer went to her home and determined there was no crime. Gladstone, who police said was visibly intoxicated and struggled when being handcuffed, also was charged with resisting arrest.

A little ironic that she was the one who ended up getting hauled away by the police?

Gladstone posted $3,000 personal recognizance bail. She is to be arraigned July 17 in 6th Circuit Court, Hooksett District Division.

Here’s the source, mug shot and all.

Needless to say, you won’t get flush working at the Rockaway, New Jersey Dunkin Donuts, even on the night shift, unless … As reported at dailyrecord.com:

Melissa Redmond, 29, of Mine Hill, was arrested after a six week investigation known as “extra sugar” that began when police got a tip that people could go to the Dunkin Donuts on Route 46 and arrange a liason with Redmond.

First reaction: Seriously, when resources are stretched so thin everywhere, the police spent SIX WEEKS on this? OMFG! Second reaction: “extra sugar”? Brilliant! But back to the intrigue…

“I had gotten an anonymous tip,” Detective Sgt. Kyle Schwarzmann, who led the investigation. “She was a night time employee (working 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.), supposedly a very good one.’’

Schwarzmann began gathering information and doing surveillance at the scene. He noticed on multiple evenings that she would go out to cars to see customers and would spend 10 or 15 minutes there, he said.

“Sometimes I ‘d even see money changing hands,’’ Schwarzmann said, adding that sometimes the cars would stay in the parking lot and other times they would drive to another nearby location.

So, with all of this valuable intel in hand …

An undercover operation was developed wth the assistance of Officer Robert Koehler and Officer Scott Haigh acting as the undercover “John.”

THREE COPS WORKING THIS CASE!!!!

“He went in plain clothes through the drive thru window,’’ Schwarzmann said. “He spoke to her and she said if he wanted a good time to call her and she gave him her phone number.”

Haigh parked in the parking lot and Redmond allegedly came out, approached him and gave him a specific price list for her services.

Haigh returned on another occasion and inquired about her services, was offered a new, and lower, price so he said he needed to go to a bank machine but would return with the money.

When Haigh returned, they drove to the back of the building and the arrest was made. Redmond was then processed, served her complaint and released.

Is it just The Juice (it often is, and he’s fine with that), or does anyone else (other than Ms. Redmond and her “customers”) think this was (and is) a colossal waste of time? Here’s the source.

It was a bad day for these growers when a certain police officer decided to go on a high-protein diet as part of a body building regimen. Huh? Here’s why, as reported by web.orange.uk:

“[Leicester police officers] asked their colleague in the back what he had been eating, and after fits of giggles and denials, they realised the cannabis smell was in the air in the street outside,” it said.

The team noticed a strong smell of cannabis as they sucked in the welcome fresh air, and tracked it to a nearby house, reports the Police Federation’s magazine.

“Imagine the surprise on the faces of the occupants of the house further along the road when the officers, following their noses, found a cannabis factory with a crop worth £12,000.”

“It was a good collar and it was all down to this officer and his flatulence,” a police source said.

A lucky collar, more accurately, unless it was your house. In that case, not so lucky. Here’s the source.

pregnant%20woman%20lady.png

These women knew that they were virtually untouchable by the police. Why? Because they were pregnant (or suckling)! Per the Qianjiang Evening News (via ChinaDaily):

A group of 46 pregnant women were arrested and prosecuted for theft in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.

The women, who committed more than 400 thefts a month in the city, vary in ages from 20 to 40. They repeatedly got pregnant, because police will not usually arrest pregnant women or women suckling. One member in the group even got pregnant eight times in 10 years.

After they were arrested, the number of robberies in the city decreased noticeably.

If you know of a stranger gang, The Juice is all ears.

mother%20duck%20ducklings%20young.jpg

If you thought The Juice was referring to an animal, you’re right – a homo sapien. In the future, this dude will likely walk around the lake to avoid a mother duck and her ducklings. As reported by khou.com:

[A Baytown mother] and her sons went into the CVS in the 1500 block of North Alexander Drive [in Houston, Texas] for about 10 minutes.

When they returned to their van and she began driving away, a man suddenly appeared from the back of the vehicle.

He pulled a knife and threatened to hurt one of the children, if the woman didn’t give him $200.

Son, you picked the wrong van.

The woman punched the suspect in the mouth and grabbed his knife. After a struggle, the thug jumped out of the vehicle.

Bam!

The woman tried to drive away, but the suspect ran toward her van and she struck him with it.

Ouch.

The suspect was taken by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. He has been identified as Ismael Martinez, 53.

And after the hospital …

Martinez will be taken to jail when he recovers.

A well-deserved bad day for Mr. Martinez … Here’s the source, with a mug shot.

bag%20flying%20in%20air%20fly.jpg

So this woman was walking her dog in Belmont, Massachusetts when, according to her, a car came speeding by. What did she do? As reported in the Belmont Citizen-Herald:

According to a police report, an officer on Oct. 1 met with a Belmont man who stated he was driving down Stone Road the previous morning when an object came through his open window and hit him in the face. He soon realized the projectile was “a flying bag of dog feces that splattered across his face, and the remaining matter soiled the front of the car,” the report said.

The Juice’s first thought: Helluva shot! Second thought: If the car is going so fast, how does she pull that off? Backstory:

The day before, on Sept. 30, an officer was dispatched to Stone Road to take a report from a woman about a speeding complaint. The woman reported she was walking her dog down Stone Road and threw a bag at a dark-colored sedan that was allegedly speeding down Stone Road, almost hitting a person on a bicycle.

The woman told police she ran to hid in a neighboring yard after throwing the bag, which she admitted was filled with feces, because the vehicle remained in the area.

The charges?

… assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, vandalism to property and disorderly conduct …

Yes, a “dangerous weapon” … Click here to read more.

Perhaps Barry Accordi was an excellent police officer. It’s quite clear, though, that he’s really not cut out to be a “Humane Officer,” which is the job he took after retiring as a sergeant. As reported by wkyc.com:

The Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals wants Humane Officer Barry Accorti fired for allegedly shooting five kittens in a home’s back yard on Monday.

Say what?

Accorti retired as a sergeant with the North Ridgeville Police Department a few years ago and was hired as a part-time humane officer with the department.

Apparently everything was going okay until …

Accorti responded to a home Monday afternoon where a feral mother cat and her five kittens were living in a woodpile.

He allegedly told the homeowner that shelters were full and that the cats would be going to kitty heaven. He then pulled out his gun and shot to death the five, 8- to 10-week-old kittens.

The Juice has no words for that.

Accorti allegedly told the homeowner that he isn’t supposed to do this, but it was justifiable. The woman ran into the house to shield her children who were screaming and crying.

Shazam! The fallout from this is still occurring. You can read more (A LOT) here.
