Loser By A Nose

A Pennsylvania man is facing charges for sticking his nose where it didn't belong – the evidence room of a police station where he found that he couldn't resist stealing a bag of pot because it smelled so good.

David Alan Thompson had gone to the police station in Charleroi to offer cops some information about an unnamed case, and after accompanying a deputy to a back room, he snuck into the evidence room and pinched a peck of pot. Another officer tracked Thompson down outside the police station, asking him, “What did you do with the weed?”

The man offered it up without argument, saying, "The bud smelled so good" – and insisting he was owed a bit of smoke as payment for his help in the other case.

A judge didn't buy that, and Thompson now faces charges of theft, receiving stolen property, tampering with or fabricating evidence, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia (Observer-Reporter)

 

Polly Want A Service Revolver?

Cops in Massachusetts got an unusual volunteer last week when a large parrot flew into the window of a police cruiser and landed on the shoulder of an on-duty officer who was on patrol.

The bird, who had been seen flying loose around the town of Waltham, perched on the cop's shoulder and sat calmly while he went about his business. The officer then took the critter to animal control where authorities are searching for his real owner. (UPI)

 

It Takes A Licking

A Maryland man was arrested after breaking into a home and cooking himself a bite to eat – but not before making an appetizer of the television remote control, which he was spotted licking while wearing nothing but his tighty-whities.

Russell Neff didn't wait for the homeowners to leave before going on his oddball spree, instead banging on the door until he managed to get in and chase the residents upstairs. Once he thought he was alone, Neff stripped down and rummaged through the freezer, settling on a chicken pot pie and grabbing the remote, which also went into his mouth.

Neff resisted arrest, but was subdued and charged with burglary, theft of a chicken pot pie and malicious destruction of property.  (Huffington Post)

A wanna-be burglar in Georgia is in a ho-ho-hole lotta trouble after getting stuck when he went up the chimney without care during a heist.
