Who burgles a joint and leaves a perfectly good laptop behind? And in case you’re wondering, it was out in the open, as you will soon see. As reported by tcpalm.com:

In a case police are calling unique, a homeowner used his laptop computer video camera to capture a photo of a suspect breaking into his home.


The homeowner left the computer on while he was gone. The footage led to the arrest of a friend, a 28-year-old man the homeowner has known since they were roommates in college, according to a sheriff’s report.

Former “friend,” that is.

Normally, investigators end up with just footprints or fingerprints and are left wondering if those prints are linked to a crime. This time, they had a visual recording of the incident and the homeowner’s identification of the person led to the arrest of Eric Rayburn, 28, of the 1900 block of Southeast Bellevue Avenue, Port St. Lucie.

Rayburn voluntarily came in for questioning and deputies quoted him as saying he goes to the house all the time and was dropping by to talk.

Bet the cops enjoyed this next bit.

Then investigators showed him the camera recording.


Rayburn, who said he works in medical supplies, told investigators he was delivering a Federal Express package. Investigators challenged that, saying there was no package in his hand in the video that was running at 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 27, 2012.

Then he asked to talk to an attorney and stopped talking with deputies.

He is charged with burglary of a dwelling [a cash box was reported missing] and second degree theft.

It’s clear that, in planning this crime, location was not a consideration. Per The New Hampshire Union Leader:

The robbery happened at 12:55 a.m. at Tedeschi Food Shop, 245 Maple St., directly across the street from the Manchester Police Department’s new building on Valley Street.


Sgt. Paul Thompson said two men robbed the store and a knife was shown. “Units responded quickly, obviously,” Thompson said.

Police immediately set up a perimeter in the Valley and Maple street area, and Officer Ben Foster and K-9 Moose were brought in to track down the men.

Thompson said the men saw the dog and ran, directly toward other officers. Arrested were Jesse Reidy, 19, of Manchester, and Brannon Collins, 18, of Manchester.

You list a car on Craigslist, and get a check for almost twice the asking price. Are you suspicious? You should be. This scam has been around for a long time. As reported by The Times and Democrat (Orangeburg, South Carolina):

The victim said Thursday she listed her vehicle [on CraigsList] back in December. She said she was contacted online and via cell phone.

On Dec. 5, she received a check from someone in Cleveland for $2,200 for the vehicle. She was only asking $1,200, the report said.


The victim said she was instructed to deposit the check and then send the buyer $1,000 of it to pay for the towing, the incident report said.

Don’t do it! It’s a …

She said she sent $1,000 through Western Union to a woman in California on Dec. 16.

… scam!

The callers are still trying to scam her for more towing expenses, the victim said.

And why wouldn’t they? That’s what they do.

The Juice wasn’t there, but that’s never stopped him from passing judgment before. This seems like a harmless prank. What do you think? As reported by The Sun News (at Cleveland.com):

A Northfield boy, 17, was arrested Dec. 17 and charged with disorderly conduct after he alarmed shoppers at Nordstrom in Beachwood Place.

The boy’s method of alarming involved putting on a Batman mask and red sunglasses on his face and a hood covering his head and then running full speed through the shopping area. Police were called and took the boy from the store.

The Juice doesn’t see the harm, though he does see the source, which is here.

It’s only fitting that a man who was watching a woman who was not aware she was being watched, was caught because, while he was watching, he was also being watched. Get it? Sure, it would have been easier (though much less satisfying) to say “peeping Tom caught by camera.” As reported by wmbf.com (Myrtle Beach):

It was just after midnight on Wednesday when a woman living on Pridgen Road noticed a man peering through her bedroom window with his face “only inches away from the glass,” states the incident report from Myrtle Beach Police.

The woman was on the phone with her boyfriend at the time, and believes a passing car scared the man away. But moments later the man was spotted again looking through the woman’s kitchen window.

Go home!

Later in the day, the woman reported what she saw to the manager of her apartment complex who was able to view the incident on the surveillance cameras. The video shows the man looking into two different windows in the victim’s apartment, then entering an apartment in the same building.


A neighbor of the victim viewed the video and identified the man as her husband, who left their home when he learned the victim had called police.

Yet another problem solved by just avoiding … wait, this just in …

Myrtle Beach Police sought warrants against the suspect, 23-year-old Tony Darin Hayes. He was taken into custody late Thursday night and charged with peeping tom, eavesdropping or peeping.

Hey, if you’ve got something against the joint’s pizza, there are alternatives to this. As reported by courierpostonline.com (Cherry Hill, New Jersey):

Friends and neighbors Saturday came to the aid of a pizza shop owner whose store on Marlton Pike in Pennsauken was heavily damaged when a Jeep Grand Cherokee smashed into the building. Not once, but twice.

Stephanie Boese, owner of Roman’s Pizza on the 3600 block of the pike, said video captured the Jeep slamming into the store around 3:30 a.m. Saturday. The vehicle then backed up and drove into the shop again. The driver fled the scene.

Twice? Not cool. Did they at least catch the perp?

Boese said Pennsauken police told her they had captured a suspect, but she had no other details. An officer who answered the department’s phone late Saturday evening said he had no updates on the incident.

Boom! You can read more (a fair amount) and see a photo of the damage here.

Let’s just say this story involves seeking comfort from an animal, specifically, a donkey. You have been warned. As reported in The Sunday News:

In an incident that left the people of Filabusi dumbstricken, a 71-year-old widower was last week arraigned before the courts after he was caught raping a donkey.

The accused, Edwin Ndlovu, resides at Lunyame Village [in Zimbabwe] under Chief Bekezela Sibaya. He was charged for contravening section 74 of the criminal law (Codification and Reform Act) chapter 9:23, Beastility.

He appeared before Filabusi magistrate Miss Sheila Nazombe on 18 November and was found guilty.

Mr Jethro Mada for the state told the court that on 15 November at around noon the accused was caught having sex with a donkey in a bush near the fields.

The offence was discovered by the owner of the donkey, Mr Jeconiah Gumpi (62), who resides in the same village. Upon catching him at the scene, Mr Gumpi demanded an explanation as to why the accused was having sexual intercourse with his donkey.

The accused did not give a satisfactory answer, and the owner of the donkey reported the matter to the police leading to his arrest.

[scratching head] What exactly would qualify as a “satisfactory answer?”

The world did not end on December 21, 2012. Everyone, except perhaps Mr. Davis, is happy about this. As reported by timesonline.com (Beaver, PA):

A Rochester police report said Melanie Mountain, no age or address given, called 911 Dec. 21 and reported that she had been assaulted by her boyfriend, Michael John Davis, 33, of 3147 Brodhead Road.

The report said Mountain was driving her car and Davis was a passenger when he became upset with her for, “not being with him ‘on the end of the world.'” Davis hit Mountain on the side of the head and face while she was driving near the area of Reno Street and Virginia Avenue, the report said.

Um, it didn’t end. So how could she have been with you for something that didn’t happen?

Mountain drove to Davis’ mother’s house on Lacock Street where Davis hit her again, took her car keys and broke her mobile phone, the report said. Mountain was able to get her keys back and drive to a phone, the report said.

Time for a new boyfriend.

Davis was charged with simple assault, harassment and criminal mischief.
