A clerk at a Florida store found a unique way to identify a teenager who tried to rob the place at gunpoint by asking him to write down his name and address for her.
The woman, whose name was not released, declined to open her cash register for 17-year-old Cody Conner, but instead told him he might be able to earn some dough by filling out a job application, which he agreed to do.
The two hugged and shared a cigarette, then Conner went home to await word on that new job only to find cops waiting to arrest him.
The teen, who was taken to juvenile detention, told deputies he was trying to help his grandparents pay their bills.
Like most women, Madeline Ann Desmet spent a lot of time planning her wedding but unlike most gals, she had a restraining order preventing her from getting anywhere near her prospective groom.
Desmet professed her undying love for the unidentified man shortly after meeting him two years ago. She was undaunted by his telling her he wasn't interested and wasn't even flustered when he went to court to have her kept away.
She took things to a whole new level of stalker-rifficness by ordering a wedding ring using his name and contacting city hall to book a wedding ceremony at which point he went to cops to have her arrested.
Desmet has been charged with felony stalking.

A thief in Washington state isn't likely to walk after staging a robbery in which he stole a number of household items including a man's prosthetic foot.
Zac Vawter's wife, Jen, came home after a Bible study class and noticed several things were missing, including her computer, a gun and the foot, which was custom-made for her husband after he lost his own in an accident two years ago.
Zac needs the foot to take part in long-distance running and says the appendage isn't likely to fetch much on the open market since it was custom fit for him.
