A Man Makes Teenage Burglars Call 911 To Report Themselves

A homeowner caught three 14-year-old kids burglarizing his home in Coos Bay, Oregon on Sunday afternoon, and he didn’t mess around.

The homeowner, who wanted to remain anonymous, was armed when he found the boys burglarizing his home, but he didn’t shoot. Instead, he forced the boys to call 911 to report the THEMSELVES for attempted theft.

The cops showed up and arrested all three of the teens on several charges including burglary, criminal trespassing, and marijuana possession.

 

Texas Man Hacks Electronic Road Sign To Read ‘Drive Crazy Y’all’

Generally speaking, those electronic roadside signs you see on highways and Interstates usually bare bad news or terrible puns.

So it sort of makes sense that 26-year-old Jeffery Eltgrothof decided to hack a roadside electronic message board to put up his own “funny” message. Jeffery successfully guessed the username and password of the signs and changed the message to say, “Drive Crazy Y’all.”

Somebody tipped off the cops about Jeffery’s computer tampering and when they caught up to him, he admitted to changing the message because he thought it was funny. The cops didn’t.

He was arrested and charged with criminal mischief for tampering with transportation communications equipment.

 

Breaking Tradition

Five Amish kids in Indiana got arrested last Friday after cops clocked their minivan doing 110 miles an hour in a 60 zone.

They also had several cases of beer with them, and a big bottle of whiskey. Amish teenagers!!!

The state troopers who arrested the boys had trouble contacting their parents because, well, they’re Amish, and Amish people don’t have phones because it’s against their religion.

A Woman Is Busted Smuggling a Meth Burrito Over the Border

Man, if Chipotle is going to charge an extra $2 to add guac to my burrito, I can only imagine how much this would run.

A 23-year-old woman named Susy Laborin from Nogales, Arizona was crossing the border from Mexico back into the United States on Saturday afternoon with a bag of burritos. For some reason, that made one of the border protection agents suspicious.

And apparently he’s got FANTASTIC instincts, because when they searched the burritos, they found one of them was stuffed with a pound of METH.

Susy admitted that she got paid $500 to take the burrito across the border. And she’s been charged with felony narcotics possession.

Golf CartStupid Criminal – Stealing a TV In A Golf Cart

A 46-year-old guy named Michael Wayne Hawk broke into a house in Lady Lake, Florida on Friday, and stole a TV.

Then he put it in his getaway GOLF CART and drove away, straight into a pond. Michael swam away, and I guess he managed to salvage the TV too, because he ran off with it. But he left his golf cart behind, floating in the pond.

When the cops started investigating the burglary, they saw the tracks from the back of the house into the pond. Then they checked the registration on the cart, found it belonged to Michael, and went to his house.

When they got there, they saw the TV and his wet clothes. Stupid Criminals!!!!

He was arrested for burglary and grand theft.

 

Everyday Heroes – Guy Running Every Day Of His Life

57-year-old LENWORTH “KIP” WILLIAMSON of Saugus, Massachusetts, made a New Year’s resolution on January 1st, 1989 to run every day for the rest of his life.

10-thousand days later, he’s still going strong. Williamson says he runs regardless of the weather, and puts in at least 3 miles every day.

If you’re doing the math, 10-thousand days comes to 27-years!!! He promises to keep going as long as his legs work.

A Woman Wanted to Prove “Vegans Can Do Anything” by Climbing Mount Everest, and Died in the Process

Well this is pretty sad, but it might make you feel vindicated if you’re one of those who puts bacon on everything!

A 34-year-old woman named Maria Strydom from Australia was climbing Mount Everest last week because she wanted to prove that, quote, “vegans can do anything.” Unfortunately for her and her theory, she DIED up there on Saturday.

Apparently the high altitude caused some fluids to build up in her brain, which killed her right before she got to the top. For what it’s worth, it didn’t happen because she was a vegan.

 

A Fugitive Drug Dealer Jumped Off a Balcony . . . Right Into the Arms of the Police

38-year-old Thomas Martin from Fitchburg, Massachusetts has been on the run for THREE YEARS to avoid federal drug charges.

But last Wednesday, the state police found out where he was living, and they swarmed the place to arrest him. As soon as they busted in, Thomas knew, “The gig was up!” So he ran up to the second floor, climbed off a balcony, and tried to jump down to sweet freedom.

I guess he didn’t realize there were two COPS waiting down there. So he LITERALLY jumped right into their arms. They caught him on the fly and arrested him. Stupid Criminals!!!

Alaska Inmate Escapes, Then Comes Back To Try To Free Others

You have to admire the selflessness of this prisoner.

A minimum security prisoner who escaped from a halfway house in Fairbanks, Alaska on Sunday morning came back 3 hours later to try and help his fellow inmates escape, too!

State Troopers say 20-year-old Joshua Yaska returned to the scene with an S-U-V big enough for all his inmate buddies. But a worker at the half-way house recognized him and alerted the state troopers.

Joshua tried to speed away but the troopers were immediately able to catch him and today he is in prison – a real prison, not a half-way house.

Cat Intestines Are Not Jump Ropes

Learning has reached a whole new level of gross.

Winston Churchill High School in San Antonio, Texas, is being investigated after a video surfaced of students using a cat’s intestines as a jump rope during a school sanctioned lesson. The teacher was trying to prove how strong intestines are during anatomy class.

A spokesperson for the school said that no one will face punishment because there was no “ill will” meant but the school is going to update the lesson plan.

 

Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 6.06.58 AMA Guy Got Locked Out of His Hotel Room, So He Tried to Shoot Through the Lock

We Americans sometimes leave the house and forget to take our keys . . . but we NEVER forget to take our guns.

A 35-year-old guy named Charles Richardson from Dunbar, West Virginia was on vacation in St. Petersburg, Florida last week. And he accidentally got locked out of his hotel room on Thursday morning.

So instead of going to the front desk and asking for another key like a normal person, he whipped out his handgun and tried to SHOOT through the lock. But it didn’t work, so he gave up and then shot out a window in the hotel for no particular reason.

The cops came and arrested him, and he got two felony counts of shooting a deadly missile in an occupied building, which is a weird way to describe this crime, but whatever. Stupid Criminals!!!

 

A High School Misspelled “School” on Their Diplomas

Ontario High School in Ontario, California had 550 seniors graduate last week.

And I guess it’s a good endorsement for the quality of education there that the kids immediately figured out there was something wrong with their diplomas.

Because the diplomas all came with nice red covers . . . that misspelled the word “school.” It’s on there as S-H-C-O-O-L.

The superintendent apologized, blamed it on the printing company, and said all of the kids will get new diploma covers.

A Guy Thinks He’s Hearing Ghosts . . . Turns Out It’s a Naked Man Hiding in His Chimney

Brad Sapp owns a recycling business in Carroll, Iowa, and earlier this week he was sorting some cans when he heard someone whisper, quote, “Get out of here.”

So he told his wife Carrie he’d heard a GHOST and she made fun of him, until SHE heard it TOO. She was working at the business a few hours later when she heard a voice screaming for help.

It turns out the ghost was a 29-year-old guy named Jordan Kajewski who was stuck in the CHIMNEY. When the fire department managed to get him out, he was totally NAKED. He said he was playing hide-and-seek, but that doesn’t really explain where his clothes went.

So Brad figured the REAL reason he went down the chimney was to try to steal some cans. Jordan was arrested for trespassing.

(Click here to see a photo of him after he got out of the chimney . . . with his clothes back on.)

 

steal-n6fA Shoplifter Says Everyone Steals From a Store, So Why Are the Cops Picking on Her?

This excuse didn’t work when you were five, so why would it POSSIBLY work when you’re an adult?

26-year-old Prolancia Turner was caught shoplifting at a mall in Vero Beach, Florida last week. A security guard spotted her shoving a few pairs of cheap earrings in her waistband at a Claire’s.

When the cops got involved, Prolancia started crying and complaining. She said, quote, “Everyone steals from this store. Why are you picking on me?”

We’re not sure if the cops dignified that with an answer, but she was arrested for retail theft.

Stupid Criminals!!!

 

lap-b42A Guy Living in His Parents’ Basement Used Counterfeit Money at a Strip Club

Everything about this story TOTALLY adds up.

32-year-old Stephen Gidcumb lives in his parents’ basement in Mount Morris, Michigan, and last week, he went out to a GENTLEMEN’S CLUB, which you probably shouldn’t be doing when you’re still living in your parents’ basement at 32. But it gets worse.

For the expenses he incurred at the ‘gentlemen’s club’ he paid for with a counterfeit $100 bill. But one of the dancer realized it was fake, and the cops got involved.

First they arrested Stephen, and then got permission from his parents to search the basement, where they found Stephen’s whole counterfeit printing setup. Now he’s looking at up to seven years in prison.

Stupid Criminals!

Over The Top Pranks

What typically happens when you get a new car or truck?

You wanna drive it! It’s brand new, with that new car smell, the ride is nice and smooth. Well the same thing happened when four volunteer firefighter in Logan Township, Pennsylvania got a brand new firetruck.

They reported false fires just so they could ride in the new fire truck. The police aren’t very happy because they also had to respond to reports such as a “dwelling fire,” only to find out the whole thing was a prank.

All four of the volunteers have been suspended for six months while the investigation continues.

 

A Couple Got Divorced a Few Minutes After Their Wedding Because the Bride Wouldn’t Stop Texting

Here’s more proof that cell phones are absolute POISON to relationships.

A couple recently got married in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and after the reception they went up to their hotel room to, you know, get the honeymoon started, if you know what I mean!! (Wink, wink)

But the guy’s new wife wouldn’t put her PHONE down because she was so busy responding to friends and family members who were texting her congratulations.

The guy asked her if her friends were more important than he was, and she said yes, so he IMMEDIATELY stormed out of the hotel and filed for a divorce.

 

A Dog Saved a Seven-Year-Old From a Rattlesnake

You might have heard about this a few days ago, but we’ve got an update . . .

A seven-year-old girl in Tampa, Florida was in her front yard playing with her grandmother last Wednesday, when their two-year-old German shepherd started acting weird. It turned out he was trying to protect them from the RATTLESNAKE.

The dog’s name is Haus, and Haus DID protect them, but he got bitten three times, so they drove him straight to a vet, and pumped him full of anti-venom.

Yesterday we found out the treatments have been working, and they were planning to take him home today.

Apparently anti-venom is pretty expensive though, each dose costs around $600, and he’s been getting about five a day. Plus it cost $1,000 a day to keep him in intensive care. So over the past week, that’s about 28 GRAND.

The good news is someone started a GoFundMe page, and as of last night, people had donated over $50,000 to cover the vet bills.

A Guy Thinks He’s Meeting a Woman For a Date, But Her Friends Steal His Car and Clothes

A guy in Broward County, Florida met up with a woman he’d been texting on Saturday, to go on a date, but it turned out to be a set up.

When he pulled up in his Mercedes, two of the woman’s male friends pulled guns on him, made him strip NAKED, and then stole his car, his wallet, his phone, and all his clothes.

So he got his hands on another phone and called 911. Then the cops were able to use his Find My iPhone app to track down the carjackers.

They arrested 26-year-old William Gonzalez of Coral Springs, Florida but didn’t find the other guy, or the woman who set the whole thing up.

Gonzalez is facing robbery and carjacking charges.

 

Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 6.18.04 AMMore Proof That American Crooks Got To Get In Better Shape!!!

If your only cardio is running from the cops, your life of crime is probably doomed.

A 21-year-old guy named Shawn Chapman from Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida shoplifted two steaks from a Publix grocery store last week, by shoving them down his PANTS. But a security guard spotted him, so Shawn took off running.

However, Shawn weighs around 300 pounds, and wasn’t quite ready for a high speed chase. So the cops quickly caught up with him when he ran out of breath, and arrested him for retail theft. Stupid Criminals.

 

A Guy Woke Up from a Coma and Immediately Asked for Taco Bell

35-year-old Army vet Jake Booth is from Bonita Springs, Florida.

He had bronchitis back in February, which turned into pneumonia in both lungs. Then it got even WORSE. He had a heart attack while he was in the hospital, and fell into a coma.

His family didn’t know if he’d ever wake up, and even if he did, it was possible he’d have brain damage. But he finally woke up 48 days later, knew his own name, and recognized both of his kids.

His brother says the first words out of his mouth were, “I want Taco Bell.” Unfortunately he wasn’t allowed to have any at that point, because he couldn’t eat solid foods.

However, his doctors just cleared him to eat real food, so one of his friends immediately went and got him a bunch of crunchy tacos and he ate EIGHT-AND-A-HALF of them, which probably isn’t the ideal thing to eat if you just had a heart attack.

But apparently his doctors were okay with it. They actually made him eat a cheeseburger first.

Check out a photo of him eating tacos by clicking here

A Woman Steals Beer Between Her Thighs . . . and Cleans Out the “Take a Penny” Tray

A woman went to a gas station in Chattanooga, Tennessee last week and did two very notable things:

  1. She stole a 12-pack of Bud Light by putting it up her skirt and holding it between her muscular thighs.
  2. She paid for her 70 cents worth of gas by cleaning out the “take a penny, leave a penny” tray. And yes, the beer was between her legs the entire time she was paying for her gas.

So the owner turned over the surveillance tape to the cops once he figured out what happened. But he definitely sounds more impressed than angry.

Quote, “You know, it made me mad. Then I got to thinking about it, and I started laughing . . . this lady, she really had it all together.”

Check out the video here.

  

Screen Shot 2016-05-17 at 6.51.31 AMA Woman Calls in a Fake Robbery to Avoid Paying Her $20 Bill at a Chili Restaurant

21-year-old Destiny Watson of Mount Healthy, Ohio was eating at a chili restaurant last week, and her bill was $20.30.

That’s a lot of chili. Apparently “Mount Healthy” doesn’t take its name very seriously. Anyway, Destiny didn’t want to pay her bill, so she called 911 to report an ARMED ROBBERY at the restaurant. But when the cops got there, they quickly figured out it was a hoax.

They were able to figure out that Destiny had made the call after the staff told them she’d been there for THREE hours and kept trying to dodge her bill. Oh, and she was the only customer in the place.

She let the cops search her purse and they found her phone with the 911 call in her call log. Stupid Criminals!!! So she was arrested for disrupting public service, making false alarms, and theft.

 

A Woman Drove Through a Train Crossing and Crashed, Twice in Two Weeks

Distracted driving is so common now, but this takes it to a whole new level.

A woman in Raleigh, North Carolina smashed through the wooden arm at a train crossing about two weeks ago, even though the warning lights were blinking and the bell was going off.

She had to swerve so she didn’t get hit by a train, and ended up crashing into a tree. Then this past Sunday, she did it AGAIN.

The same woman, crashed through the same train crossing, in the same car. Then she got stuck on the tracks. But she managed to get out right before an oncoming train slammed into it.

Luckily no one on the train was hurt, but it ended up being delayed for about two hours.

A Groom Jumped Out of the Limo on the Way to the Reception, and Ended Up in the Hospital

If you get cold feet right before your wedding, at least have the common sense to bail BEFORE you go through with it.

A 22-year-old guy from New South Wales, Australia got married a few weeks ago, and right before the ceremony, he was having cold feet. So he got nice and drunk, which helped him through the ceremony.

But when he and his new wife were in the limo from the service to the reception, he realized he really DIDN’T want to be married after all, so he opened the door and jumped out of the moving limo!

He was taken to the hospital, and only had minor injuries. But his new wife still went ahead with the reception, even though he wasn’t there. She told reporters, quote, “That’s $10,000 down the drain.”

There’s no word on where their marriage stands.

 

A Man Was So Mad at a Verizon Worker That He Locked Him in an Underground Vault

Verizon employee, Michael Hathaway was doing some work in an underground vault in Westborough, Massachusetts back in August of 2013.

The vault was right next to a self-storage business that’s owned by 73-year-old Howard Cook Jr. And Michael parked his Verizon truck on Howard’s grass.

Well, you KNOW there’s nothing that makes an old man angrier than someone on his lawn, and Howard was SO furious that he shut the lid to the VAULT to trap Michael inside. He also put rocks on top to make sure he was sealed in.

Also, the vault’s ventilation system turns off when the lid closes, so Michael was trapped without air.   Fortunately his Verizon cell phone worked down there, and he called for help. Howard just pleaded guilty to kidnapping, and got one year of probation and anger management classes.

 

Hire A Professional!

If you’re not a plumber and you have plumbing problems, it would be wise to hire a plumber, right? If you have electrical problems, hire an electrician, right? The same may go for cutting down large trees.

We have video of a man, somewhere in the U.S., who used a chainsaw to cut down a very tall tree in his front yard. He cut from the left, and the tree went to the right.

By the time he realized what was happening, it fell onto his boat and truck.

Polite Criminal Is Busted

Being polite isn’t always the best idea.

Case in point: a Massachusetts man held a door open for a police officer and landed himself in jail. The officer says, when 28-year-old KAYVON MAVADDAT held the door for him at the Natick Mall, he thought he looked familiar.

So, he went back to his police cruiser and checked the computer. Sure enough, Kayvon had warrants out for shoplifting, drug possession, and driving on a suspended license. The officer returned to the mall and arrested him.

 

A Woman Is Arrested For Robbing a Radio Shack

I’d say a Radio Shack employee is going to get fired over this, but at this point, the entire company might go out of business first.

A woman was caught robbing a Radio Shack in West Sacramento, California in the middle of the night on Tuesday. She didn’t even really have to break IN to the place because an employee forgot to lock the DOOR.

But the guy DID remember to set the silent alarm, which is how the cops knew the woman was inside. So now she’s been arrested for burglary. Pull it together, Radio Shack.

 

A Mother Goose Found a Cop, Because its Baby Was Tangled in String

A cop in Cincinnati named James Givens was in his squad car on Monday, when a female GOOSE started pecking at his door.

Then it started walking away, but he says it stopped and looked back at him like it wanted him to FOLLOW it. So he followed the goose down to a nearby creek. It turned out it WAS trying to get his attention, because one of its baby geese was in trouble. That’s ‘goslings’ if you want to get all technical.

There were about a dozen baby geese running around, and one of them was tangled in a piece of string attached to a Mother’s Day balloon. So James filmed it on his phone while another cop named Cecilia Charron got it untangled.

He says the mother just stood there and watched, so she must have known they weren’t going to hurt it.

A Family Found a Rat in Their Bottle of Dr. Pepper . . . After They Drank Half of It

John Graves in Katy, Texas was watching his three-year-old grandson Kayden on Sunday.

And because grandparents have no rules, Kayden drank half of a 20-ounce bottle of Dr. Pepper. But that’s when they noticed something floating in the bottle. And when they took the label off to get a look at it, they realized it was a RAT.

They took a picture, and it’s pretty disgusting. You can see the beady eyes, the teeth, the ears, everything. Then they took Kayden to the doctor to make sure he didn’t get any diseases.

Dr. Pepper says they’re investigating. Quote, “Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our consumers. Given the controls and safeguards we have in our production facilities, it is virtually impossible for any foreign object to enter any container during the bottling process.”

Pretty sure that’s corporate speak for “We think this is a hoax.”

A Guy Got Revenge on His Ex by Spraying Her Car . . . But Misspelled “Cheeter”

Another story about revenge on an ex. Maybe this is why they always say, “Revenge is best served cold,” because this guy is bad at revenge AND basic literacy.

36-year-old Timothy Trammell from Jonesville, South Carolina wanted to get revenge on his ex-girlfriend last week. Apparently their relationship ended when she cheated on him.

So he went to the convenience store where she works on Friday, found her car in the parking lot, and spray painted “cheater” on it.

First, he misspelled “cheater” and wrote it “C-H-E-E-T-E-R.” And second, a cop spotted him WHILE he was doing it. So Timothy was arrested for vandalism.

Stupid Criminals!!!

A One-Armed Guy Answers His Phone While Driving . . . and Crashes

A guy with one arm was driving in Yantai, China last week.

He’s only been identified as Jiang. We’ll give him props for driving with only one arm, but that became a real issue when his cell phone rang, and he decided to take his hand off the wheel to ANSWER it.

Not surprisingly, he crashed his car immediately. When the cops got there, they were shocked that he was driving with one arm, especially since his car was a STICK SHIFT. So not only does he drive a stick shift with only one arm, he decides to answer his phone while driving a stick shift with only one arm!

Oh, and apparently he doesn’t even have a driver’s license. So he was just sentenced to 15 days in jail and a $300 fine.

A Couple’s Prom Photos Were Photobombed by a Tornado

Now HERE’S a way to make your generic prom photos stand out from everyone else’s.

Ali Marintzer and Charlie Bator of Wray, Colorado were taking their prom photos this weekend, when they got photobombed by a TORNADO. And it was only about three miles away, so it looks HUGE in the background of their pictures.

The tornado wound up injuring five people and destroying a few mobile homes, but it didn’t interfere with the prom. And that’s what’s really important here, right?  Click here to see the tornado prom photo.

 

Man Seeking Revenge Accidently Went To The Wrong House

Ajinka Kelkar, from New Jersey, was angry that his ex-girlfriend had already moved on to a new boyfriend, so he decided to take his revenge out on the cars in the new boyfriend’s driveway.

Kelkar crept onto the property and slashed the tires on all of the vehicles in the driveway and scratched obscenities into the door and fender of one of the vehicles.

When all was said and done, he had caused $10,000 in damage!

Buuuuutt – It turns out that he had the wrong house!!   AND he was caught on surveillance cameras.

Stupid Criminals!!!

He was promptly arrested.

 

A Guy Didn’t Realize He Shot Himself Until He Changed His Shirt . . . Three Days Later

If this guy just showered like a semi-normal person, we wouldn’t be talking about him, but his filthiness is our gain.

37-year-old Michael Blevins of Orange City, Florida was cleaning his gun on Thursday, when he accidentally SHOT HIMSELF.

He took one in the arm, but somehow he didn’t realize it. He thinks maybe it’s because he was on painkillers from a back injury. And Michael still didn’t notice the bullet hole in his arm until THREE DAYS later, when he finally took off his shirt. Apparently this guy hadn’t changed or showered for THAT long.

So he went to the hospital where they told him the wound was healing nicely and he was fine. But the hospital called the cops, which they always do when someone shows up with a bullet wound. And Michael had to explain to them what happened.

He’s not facing any charges, unless there’s a law for not showering for three days, which there should be.
