A Florida man approached a teenage boy with a gun and demanded he hand over his car - his remote control car.
According to police, 35-year-old Efrain Burgos-Delgado went up to the 16-year-old, held up a gun, and took his toy car.
The teen told Osceoloa County Sheriff's Deputies that Burgos-Delgado took off, then came back and stole the kid's phone before fleeing again.
When he was arrested Burgos-Delgado allegedly told authorities he sold the car to buy drugs. The phone, which was still in his possession, was returned to the boy.
Burgos-Delgado was charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, false imprisonment, grand theft, dealing in stolen property, petty theft and resisting without violence. (Huffington Post)

And you thought your smart-phone was expensive.
A Hong Kong businessman recently hired a Liverpool craftsman Stuart Hughes to bling out his iPhone 5 with jewels, including a 26-carat black diamond, said to be worth $14.5 million.
That's not all, the iPhone valued at $15 million also includes 600 white diamonds, a solid gold shell and 53 more diamonds decorating the Apple logo on the phone's back. The black diamond, which is a family heirloom, serves as the phone's home button.
This isn't the first time Hughes has blinged out a phone. In the past, he's made iPhones worth $153,000, and another with 500 diamonds that's worth an estimated $9 million. And, after spending all that money, you'll still have to pay your monthly service charges. (CNN)
