A mother in Georgia was arrested for allegedly stealing nearly $10,000 from her daughter’s Girl Scout troop, then spending the money on gas and a dating service for seniors.
Darlene Jo Lewis, 49, was the treasurer and co-leader for Douglasville’s Girl Scout Troop 798. The troop was disbanded in May 2012 because of the loss of the money reportedly embezzled by Lewis. Tracy Williams, who became a troop co-leader in 2010 said she continually asked to see bank statements and always got excuses. Investigators say Lewis had embezzled $9,805.42, which she used on purchases at Sam’s Club, Walmart, a Christian bookstore and senior dating website “Senior People Meet.”
Lewis has been charged with felony theft and is now out of jail on $9,800 bond. (Huffington Post)
An elderly Georgia man was feeling pretty crappy after spending more than an hour trapped at the bottom of an outdoor toilet.
The poor man was left covered in human waste after falling five feet into the toilet pit, which apparently happened because he slipped while standing on the toilet rather than sitting on it.
"We've had these type of toilet facilities for 10 to 15 years, and he just misused the toilet, unfortunately," said Lisa Parker of the Army Corps of Engineers, which services Carters Lake in northern Georgia.
The man was trapped for about 70 minutes, until concerned family members alerted authorities that he was missing.
Once rescued, he was taken to the hospital and treated. (NY Daily News)
Ever pay a thousand bucks for an ice cream sundae? That's what a Florida man was forced to do after he tried to steal one, which would've only cost him three dollars in the first place.
Tobias Franklin ordered the frozen treat, then asked the owner how much it cost. When he got the answer, he grabbed the dish and bolted, only to have the owner call cops, and take part in the chase himself, leading to Franklin's capture a few blocks away.
The 20-year-old was charged with a third-degree felony, and held on $1000 bond. (Orlando Sentinel)
