An employee at a South Carolina convenience store was arrested after giving a customer a deal that was a little too sweet – by offering him an armload of ice cream in return for a customer's cache of weed.
Timothy Oren Jones, who lost his job as a result of the arrest, was charged with breach of trust after a surveillance camera captured the deal going down – while his accomplice, Edward Dean Burris, was charged with petty larceny for walking off with the frozen treats. (WSPA)
A crook who knew it was like to be down to his last dollar left one of his victims in the same condition – by swiping several 20 dollar bills from the man's wallet, but leaving one single tucked inside.
The victim called cops to report the robbery, which also netted two packs of smokes, but said that the surveillance camera he'd set up to guard the place had been disconnected sometime after he got home in the wee hours of the morning.
The unidentified victim said he left the front door unlocked and didn't hear anyone enter his house because he had passed out after a night of heavy drinking. (NW Florida Daily News)
Two Florida teenagers are awaiting charges after they were arrested during a robbery they thought they could get away with – by staging their own fake arrest midway through the heist.
The teens had a plan to steal a load of Yu-Gi-Goh cards from a Wal-Mart by having one of them try to snag the cards, only to be apprehended by the second – who was dressed in a security outfit and carrying fake handcuffs. The phony guard marched the thief out to the parking lot, uncuffed him and they ran off together, a scene observed by employees, who called real cops to step in.
The kids, realizing their bluff was called, surrendered without incident, with one telling a reporter, "I mean, everybody's stupid, just not like this." (Treasure Coast News)
