ROMEO ROBBER

A Pennsylvania man apparently needs an explanation of what it means to steal a woman's heart after he allegedly robbed a girl as she got off a bus, then called her to ask for a date.

26-year-old John Jardini took 60 dollars from the girl, who had gotten off the bus and was waiting for her mother. Then, apparently thinking that his actions made him irresistible, Jardini called the girl twice, asking her if she had a boyfriend and if she wanted to go out with him.

Police got a warrant for Jardini's phone records and were about to track him down when Jardini struck again, allegedly assaulting the same girl and her mother outside a supermarket!

He was arrested on the spot and positively identified as the guy who earlier robbed the girl.

CHECK, PLEASE

Here's a tip: Don't dine and dash. Here's a better tip: Don't dine and dash during a police fundraiser where cops are the waiters and waitresses.

A New Mexico man made the mistake of trying to skip out on a check at an Applebee's restaurant during the Tip-A-Cop fundraiser - where officers served as the restaurant's hosts and waitstaff.

Apparently his two female dining companions left the restaurant first, and then he allegedly tried to slip out without paying the $30 check.

Given that the place was crawling with cops, he was quickly apprehended and charged with obtaining services less than $100.

STAMPING OUT CRIME

Police in Ireland had an easy time delivering a would-be burglar to jail -- after he got his arm stuck in a home's mail slot.

A patrol car spotted the 17-year-old as he was trying to free himself from the home's front door. Seems he had tried to unlock the door from the inside, by sticking his arm through the mail slot, but his arm became trapped inside.

Firefighters dismantled the door but left the mailbox on the teen's arm until they reached a police station, where it was safely removed.
