FBI: Man gives teller his name, ID before robbing Alaska bank; information leads to his arrest

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A 34-year-old man is in custody after authorities say he gave a teller his account number and showed her his picture ID before robbing an Anchorage bank.

The FBI says Jarell Paul Arnold of Anchorage is being held on federal bank robbery charges.

The FBI alleges Arnold walked into an Alaska USA Federal Credit Union branch Friday and inquired about the balance on his account. The teller asked for his name, account number and ID.

Authorities say he complied, and then handed over a receipt with a note on the back that said he had a gun and demanded money.

The FBI says he got away with about $600. Authorities arrested Arnold on Monday. A message left after business hours Wednesday with Arnold's public defender, Michael Dieni, was not immediately returned.

Court records say Arnold was sentenced to 57 months in prison for bank robbery in 2004.[/quote]

Oregon burglary suspect confronted outside garage arrested wearing victim's underwear

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A burglary suspect confronted inside a garage was arrested wearing only underwear, and police said they weren't even his. Marion County sheriff's deputies said they responded to a call from a woman late Monday night who said her boyfriend had caught a burglar in their garage and was holding him for police.

Deputies said the man was wearing nothing but the woman's underwear. They later located large garbage bags full of women's clothing, underwear, shoes and accessories in the suspect's garage in the same neighborhood.

Deputies charged a 47-year-old man with burglary, theft, criminal trespass and possession of illegal fireworks.[/quote]

Police: Lincoln man made up robbery story to explain nudity

Police say a 19-year-old man made up a story about being robbed to explain why he was walking around Wilderness Park au naturel Monday afternoon.
Sando Dshaw Hamilton, 2415 S. 9th St., was arrested and jailed Wednesday night on suspicion of making a false statement to police and indecent exposure, said Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood.
After Hamilton was seen naked in Wilderness Park Monday afternoon, he told police a man with a gun tried to rob him, but he had no money so the robber took his clothes.
Flood said police now believe Hamilton took off his clothes because he was hot. He walked around naked for about an hour and then could not find his clothes, so police say he made up the story about being robbed.[/quote]

[quote author=Chicago Tribune]Conn. police charge man after he allegedly wandered into wrong home and fell asleep

STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police charged a man with burglary and disorderly conduct after he allegedly wandered into a neighbor's home, stripped off his clothes and fell asleep in a 6-year-old's bed. A man, 26, was arrested early Sunday after a child in a house woke his parents to tell them a man was asleep in his bed. When officers arrived, the residents were screaming for help from a second-floor window.

Officers said the man's clothes, which smelled of urine and alcohol, had been dropped on the floor. They said the man admitted drinking at a New Haven club but denied he was in the wrong house.

The suspect was released on bond and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 1.[/quote]

[Quote author=foxnews.com]Indian Activists Blast Ritual of Dropping Babies off Mosque Roof

NEW DELHI — Rights activists lashed out Friday at local officials who allowed hundreds of infants to be dropped from the roof of a mosque in western India in the belief that the fall — which ends when the babies are caught in a bedsheet — would ensure good health and prosperity for their families.

The ritual at the Baba Umer Durga, a Muslim shrine, is believed to have been followed for nearly 700 years, and each year hundreds of people, both Hindus and Muslims, take part in the ritual.

Local officials told television news stations there had been no reports of injuries.

The infants, mostly under two years old, were dangled Thursday from the roof of the shrine near Sholapur, about 280 miles south of Mumbai, before being dropped about 50 feet onto a bedsheet held aloft by parents and other believers.

Television channels showed the babies screaming as they were shaken in the air before being dropped.

With high child mortality rates, especially in India's rural areas, many people resort to rituals which they believe can ensure their children's health.
Child rights activists expressed outrage after the Headlines Today television channel showed the babies being dropped.

"This shows the complete failure of the local administration to prevent this practice and to create awareness about children's health," said Ranjana Kumari, a civil rights activist in New Delhi.

"It is also a reflection of the lack of access to health services , that forces people to behave in this irrational manner," Kumari told the AP.
India's National Commission for Protection of Child's Rights issued a notice Thursday to the local administration in Sholapur and has begun investigations into the practice.[/quote]

[quote author=ananova.com]Drunk driver rang police

A drunk driver was arrested in Germany after he accidentally rang the police instead of a breakdown service when he had a flat tyre.

Before he realised who he was speaking to, the 31-year-old let it slip that he had no licence and was driving under the influence.

The civil servant, who lost his licence eight years ago, had a blow out in the western town of Monheim while driving a car borrowed from a friend.
He had a blood alcohol level that was seven times the legal limit, and when he tried to call the German equivalent of the AA he became confused and dialled the emergency number for the police.

The drunken man phoned and said: "My car is broken and I need you to come and fix it. You better be quick because I'm really pretty drunk and I don't have a licence so it wouldn't be good if the cops drove past."

A Monheim police spokesman said: "He wanted us to come quickly, so we did." [/quote]

[quote author= dailyherald.com]Car set ablaze after Joliet woman used lighter to check gas can level

By Lee Filas | Daily Herald Staff

A 27-year-old Joliet woman is suffering from second-degree burns after using a lighter to check the fuel level in a gas can she was filling while the can was resting inside her car.

Police officials said the woman drove into a 7-11 gas station at 1609 E. Cass St. at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night and climbed out of her car.
She then placed the gas can on the passenger seat of the vehicle, pulled down the nozzle of the pump, and began filling the can.

About halfway through, the woman ignited a lighter to shine some light on the gas can, apparently to see how full the can was, officials said.
The can ignited from the lighter's flame and exploded, setting the vehicle's interior ablaze, officials said.
After the fire started, the woman pushed the car away from the gas pumps to apparently ensure the fire didn't spread to the gas pumps itself.
Officials said, when police and fire officials arrived on the scene, the car was located about 5-feet from the pumps and was completely engulfed in flames.

The woman was transported from the scene to Silver Cross Hospital in Joliet with nonlife threatening injuries to her wrist and thigh, authorities said.[/quote]

[quote author=wtsp.com]Bank wants thumbprint from man with no hands
Mike Deeson

Tampa, Florida -- While most banks require a thumbprint to cash a check from someone who doesn't have an account, a Tampa man says that policy was impossible to comply with.

Steve Valdez says he was shocked when he was told he had to put his thumbprint on a check written on his wife's Bank of America check. Valdez says the check was written to him with the same address he has on his driver's license. Although he had two forms of identification both with pictures, the bank still required Valdez to give a thumbprint before it would cash the check.

But that was impossible, because Valdez was born without arms and wears prosthetic devices.

According to Valdez, when he gave the teller the check, she said "Obviously you can't give a thumbprint." But Valdez says the manager refused to cash the check unless he did.

When Valdez told the manager giving a thumbprint would be impossible, she suggested he either bring in his wife or open an account. Valdez says that's not the way the bank would treat someone without prosthetic arms, and he refused.

Valdez says he asked the bank if it had ever heard of the American with Disabilities Act and he says they told him they were accommodating him by offering the choices. But the ADA says businesses must comply with basic nondiscrimination requirements that prohibit exclusion, segregation, and unequal treatment.

A spokesman for Bank of America says while the thumbprint is a requirement for those who don't have accounts, the bank should have made accommodations.[/quote]

[quote author= columbiatribune.com]Woman fires gun at airport
Police: Neighbor threatened plane.
By T.J. Greaney

A Fulton woman was arrested Saturday after firing a shot and threatening to shoot down a plane that, she said, flew too close to her house.

At about 7:42 p.m., Fulton police were dispatched to the Fulton Municipal Airport, where a woman, later identified as Judy K. Davis, 69, had charged onto the runway brandishing a loaded .22-caliber handgun. Davis’ house is less than a mile west of the airport.

Police said Davis was angered by repeated flyovers by an ultralight aircraft and had entered the terminal of the airport saying that she had a gun and planned to “shoot down the plane.”

She then went onto the runway where a small plane was attempting to land and fired the handgun, police said. It is unknown, police said, whether she fired the handgun at the plane or into the ground.

Fulton police said the shot forced a pilot to abort his landing and circle back around before landing safely, but airport administrator Travis St. John said no landing was aborted. He said the pilot landed as planned but stayed by the aircraft to avoid a confrontation with the woman.

“He landed, and some people intercepted her,” St. John said. “She was at the airport walking out towards the aircraft. And people on the ground kind of waylaid her before she got there so we wouldn’t have a confrontation between them.”

St. John said a little-used grass runway was being used that day by an instructor doing training for novice pilots. The pilots took off and made a rectangular pattern around the area, likely flying at a low altitude above the woman’s house.

“When other people get irritated, what they’ll do is call up and we’ll talk to the pilot and we’ll have them switch runways or maybe discontinue for a bit or alter something,” St. John said. “We don’t want to disrespect anybody or irritate people.”

St. John said the woman never made a formal complaint and, to his knowledge, had never complained previously. “She came” to the airport “already unglued, unfortunately,” he said.

Davis was charged with unlawful use of a weapon and taken to the Callaway County Jail, where she posted a $4,500 bond.
Federal authorities were contacted and will assist in the investigation, Fulton Police Lt. Bill Pruitt said.[/quote]

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio police said a suspect in a robbery was arrested when he returned to the home about two hours later to ask the victim out on a date. Police say 20-year-old Stephfon Bennett of Columbus was among three men who robbed a couple late Sunday.

Columbus police Sgt. Sean Laird said the woman recognized Bennett as one of the robbers when he returned to ask her out. She had a relative call 911.

Police said Bennett was arrested in front of the home. He was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of aggravated robbery and was being held in the Franklin County jail on $100,000 bail.

[quote author=thisisjuststupid.com]Texas Man Trying to Cash $360 Billion Check Arrested

FORT WORTH, Texas – Charles Ray Fuller must have been planning one big record company.

The 21-year-old North Texas man was arrested last week for trying to cash a $360 billion check, saying he wanted to start a record business, authorities said. Tellers at the Fort Worth bank were immediately suspicious — perhaps the 10 zeros on a personal check tipped them off, according to investigators.

Fuller, of suburban Crowley, was arrested on a forgery charge, police said. He was released after posting $3,750 bail.

Fuller said his girlfriend’s mother gave him the check to start a record business, but bank employees who contacted the account’s owner said the woman told them she did not give him permission to take or cash the check, according to police.

In addition to forgery, Fuller was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon and possessing marijuana, Fort Worth police Lt. Paul Henderson said. Officers reported finding less than 2 ounces of marijuana and a .25-caliber handgun and magazine in his pockets, police said.

Fuller couldn’t be located for comment by The Associated Press on Friday because there were no phone listings for him in the Fort Worth area.

Officers sniff out pot, gun

26-year-old visits RPD for permit, but marijuana odor arouses suspicion, leads to arrest

BY MIKE BENNETT
STAFF WRITER

Mitchel L. Legg got the $50 back that he paid Thursday with his application to carry a gun.

He also was arrested on a charge of carrying a gun without a license.

Legg visited the Richmond Police Department at 11:30 a.m. to fill out an application.

Officers and staff members noticed a heavy smell as he was doing the paperwork.

"He reeked of marijuana, so they patted him down," said Chief Kris Wolski. "Officers (Heather) Edwards and (John) Lackey were aware that things just didn't add up. It's a good thing they did."

That's because the patdown discovered that besides marijuana, Legg was carrying a .22 semiautomatic handgun.

"It (gun) was in a little nylon holster under his shirt," Wolski said.

Legg, 26, of 327 S. W. 17th St., was arrested and lodged in Wayne County Jail at 12:15 p.m. on a Class D felony charge of possession of marijuana and a Class A misdemeanor charge of carrying a handgun without a license.

He was released after posting a $750 cash bond.

Wolski signs all gun permit requests after the information is verified and the applicant qualifies.

Some people are refused because of past criminal offenses, but he can't remember someone being arrested in a similar situation to Legg's.

Wolski doesn't expect to see Legg's gun permit application.

"I said we may as well give him his filing fee back," he said.

Wolski said more people are coming to the department to request permits. Last year, he estimated 12 to 15 were processed each week.

"It's way up from what it's been," Wolski said. "I've had times when we've had that many in a day."

He said many of the applicants cite rumors that the change in presidents will toughen gun laws.

"It instantly went up (after the November election)," he said.

Zombies good, God bad when dating online

By Lewis Wallace


Making a positive first impression on a potential mate can be as easy as dropping the words "zombie" or "atheist" into your opening salvo on an online dating site.

Making spelling errors, being too forward, slipping into sloppy internet slang or simply mentioning "God" can doom your chances for making that crucial first connection. (Referencing "Allah" or "Jesus" is OK, apparently.)

These are just some of the fascinating results compiled by online dating site OkCupid.com after crunching numbers on 500,000 first contacts between singles.

The results of the online dating study, published Monday on OkCupid's OkTrends blog, supply would-be romantics with a handful of specific dos and don'ts for navigating the stormy waters of virtual romance.

Sam Yagan, co-founder and CEO of the site, boiled down the secrets to success in an e-mail to Wired. "Be specific," he said. "Be brief. Make a reference to the recipient's profile."

Moves that practically ensure failure: commenting on the recipient's physical appearance and offering or soliciting personal contact information.

A previous OkTrends post on optimum message length pointed to the importance of brevity. "The combination of a high level of detail in a very short first message is a bit of a surprise," Yagan said.

These are the study's seven key findings:

1. Be literate
Don't use the "fool's lexicon" of netspeak no-nos like "ur," "ya" and "realy."

2. Avoid physical compliments
Saying your potential date looks "sexy" or "beautiful" might seem like a good idea, but it's not.

3. Use an unusual greeting
"How's it going?" and "howdy" are in; "hi" and "hello" are out.

4. Don't try to take it outside
Even mentioning chat, e-mail or instant messaging can ding your chances of connecting, according to the study.

5. Bring up specific interests
Professing your devotion to heavy metal, videogames, zombies or vegetarianism can really pay off.

6. If you're a guy, be self-effacing
Confidence doesn't necessarily pay off for men online, the study finds. Instead, try a little fence-sitting. "It could be that women like guys who write mumbly," the study concludes.

7. Consider becoming an atheist
Mentioning most religious views pays off positively, but going godless pays off most handsomely. Dropping the words "atheist," "Allah" or "Jesus" are good; mentioning "God" has a negative effect.

OkCupid was founded by maths graduates, Yagan said, so the study contains plenty of statistics. But the full results make for an entertaining read – it's far from a dry scientific paper.

"All three of my co-founders are mathematically inclined, so we were able to handle the statistics correctly ourselves," Yagan said. "To give you a sense of how we've woven math into everything we do, check out our matching algorithm."

In a privacy statement posted with the study's results, the company maintained that all messages were anonymised, "with sender and recipient data, and all IP and timestamp information stripped out."

"Our Python jam program looked at messages only two or three words at a time, to track the success of certain words or phrases (like 'what's up' vs. 'wats up')," according to the statement. "The program then aggregated results by phrase before presenting the data; no one at OkCupid has read any actual user messages, or indeed any user-written phrase longer than five words, to compile this post."

Yagan said OkCupid, which launched in 2004 and has 3.3 million unique users, will definitely be watching to see if users take the advice to heart – and to see what happens if they do.

"What we're especially interested in here is to see if there's something about the people who write the 'good' messages besides the messages themselves that's driving the high response rate," Yagan said. "In other words, imagine if interesting people have an easier time writing about their hobbies, what will happen when boring people write about their (boring) hobbies?"

Man cited for peppering Southern California national park with 3,000 golf balls

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) -- A man who said he hurled thousands of golf balls into Joshua Tree National Park for more than a year to honor deceased golfers will be explaining his tribute to a federal magistrate.

Park rangers cited 57-year-old Douglas Jones for abandoning property, littering and feeding wildlife. Park spokesman Joe Zarki said Wednesday that Jones tossed some 3,000 golf balls from his vehicle.

Jones also scattered a few tennis balls and park literature and left fruit and vegetables along park roads. Jones says rangers spent 370 hours cleaning up, at a cost of $9,000.

Finally spotted in action last month, Jones allegedly told rangers he threw the golf balls to leave his mark and honor deceased golfers. The food was for stranded hikers.

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man who stole a hot dog from another man sitting under a tree in a park has been sentenced to 18 months in prison. Antonio Judd pleaded guilty Monday in Worcester Central District Court to charges including larceny from a person. Police said Judd grabbed the hot dog in August after flashing what appeared to be a gun in Elm Park in Worcester, New England's second-largest city.

Police reports say Judd began to devour the hot dog, spilling mustard all over his shirt. They say when he was arrested later he was carrying a pellet gun and a pocket knife.

Money for nothing in Malvern
by Kate Bruce-Rosser

PROMISES that special chemicals could duplicate money have allegedly duped a Malvern business.

Police said three Victorian businesses gave about $160,000 in cash to two men in the belief their money would double when soaked in chemicals.

A supermarket receipt, uncovered during investigations, has since revealed the chemicals’ formula as bleach, baby powder and hair spray.

Police said the two men would conduct the “procedure” out of sight each time, transfer the money into their possession, then wrap up worthless paper in aluminium foil or another non-see-through casing.

Detective Sgt Andrew Healey said the Malvern business owners were told to leave the wrapped package for 24 hours while the chemical worked.

Police arrested and charged two Caroline Springs men, aged 23 and 25, on Friday, September 11, after being alerted by the owners who had become suspicious and opened the package to find no money.

It is understood the pair initially expressed an interest in buying a Malvern bottle shop and formed a rapport with the owners.

After some time, the offenders told the owners they had chemicals that could duplicate bank notes.

Police said the men “demonstrated” their claim by placing a $100 note between sheets of black paper, which they described as “special material”, and pouring a liquid substance over the top.

When the sheets of paper were separated, a second $100 note was inside, which the businessmen verified as genuine at the bank.

The owners then agreed to provide $10,000 each to be chemically treated.

Two other businesses were also deceived by a similar scam, losing $20,000 and $120,000.

Police said the bottle shop owners had not committed an offence.

The two men charged with theft will appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on October 19.[/quote]

Prison officer zaps children with 50,000-volt stun gun 'to show them what a day at work is like'
By Jacqui Goddard

Prison officer Walter Schmidt wanted to give his colleagues' children a taste of what their mums and dads get up to at work while showing them around a Florida jail.

So to make the youngsters' experience all the more realistic as they toured Franklin Correctional Institution during the lock-up's 'Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day', he decided to zap them with his 50,000-volt stun gun.

The jolt sent at least two of them sprawling to the floor, crying out in pain and clutching at agonising burns on their arms. One child ended up in hospital.

But 37-year-old Schmidt told officials who later fired him that he had only been trying to show the children - whose parents all work at the jail near Tallahassee - what a typical day involves while handling unruly inmates.

'It wasn't intended to be malicious, but educational,' he explained to the St Petersburg Times.

'The big shock came when I got fired.'

Sgt Schmidt, who had served as a jailer for 14 years and was in charge of the prison arsenal, claims that he had asked permission from the children's parents for the stunt. 'When they said "Sure" I went ahead and did it,' he shrugged.

Florida's Secretary of Corrections, Walter McNeil, has ordered an investigation into the incident.

The stun gun Schmidt used, known as an electronic immobilisation device, delivers a shock up to 450 times stronger than the current in a household electric socket.

It must be held directly on the victim's body to deliver a shock - unlike a Taser, which fires dart-like electrodes into the skin from a distance. The charge disrupts a person's nervous system, causing involuntary muscle contractions that leave them temporarily immobilised.

Duffie Harrison, the chief warden at Franklin Correctional Institution, told Schmidt in a letter that he had 'engaged in inappropriate conduct while demonstrating weapons to several kids during a special event at the institution.'

'Your retention would be detrimental to the best interests of the state,' the letter advised.

Associated Press October 2, 2009

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — A man who told officers he was a medical marijuana provider has been arrested for allegedly standing naked in a Colorado highway, pounding on passing cars and spitting at a state trooper. Dustin Robbins, 27, of Westminster, faces 13 counts including indecent exposure, assault and driving under the influence of marijuana.

Robbins was arrested Sept. 25 on U.S. 34 east of Greeley. Witnesses told investigators he was cursing at cars and hitting some.

Two women in their 70s and 80s told deputies a naked man jumped on the hood of their car, broke windows, walked across the roof and jumped off the back. Damage was estimated at $1,200.

Authorities said Robbins spat on the state trooper who arrested him.

Deputies said he told them he was a medical marijuana provider, and they found certificates for medical marijuana but no state provider's license.

State officials said records of licensed providers aren't public.

Robbins is jailed under $50,000 bail. No phone listing could be found for him and it wasn't known if he had a lawyer.[/QUOTE]

Mohn has been charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Garfagna has been ordered to appear in court on assault and battery charges. It's unclear whether either has hired an attorney.[/QUOTE]

Ok, how about this one. Unbelievable but sadly true.

The woman had a cat for more then a year. She called her Beauty although she was too lazy to brush her coat regularly.
Eventually cat's fur got all matted so she decided to clip entangled chunks of hair. When she snipped first one under the tail and blood started spurting she called the emergency vet. Yes the cat was a he, although now he has lost all his male attributes as his other testicle was also removed.

Was it Einstein who said- two things are infinite - the space and human stupidity.
