A New Jersey man caught driving a brand-new Kia out of a dealership in the middle of the night told police he was just taking a "test drive."
Mount Olive police pulled over 44-year-old David Fletcher after seeing him take the new car off the lot when the dealership was closed.
Fletcher told the officers that he had driven his own car to the dealership to look at the new cars, and when he noticed one with the keys in the ignition he “decided to take the vehicle for a test drive."
Fletcher was arrested on charges of burglary and unlawful taking of means of conveyance. (NJ.com)
A Pennsylvania man who was trying to guarantee safe sex ended up in a very unsafe position, after two men robbed him at knife point, taking nothing but a condom.
The man, whose name was not released, was walking down a street on the east side of Erie when the men approached him and took the single condom he was carrying. We're presuming it wasn't in use at the time.
Erie County emergency dispatchers confirmed the report, but offered no additional details. (Erie Times-News)
A Florida man ran into some serious trouble during an attempted robbery, thanks to a Croc, not the animal, but the shoe that he left behind at the scene of the crime.
Dominick Andrew Giordano was trying to break into a pick-up truck in the parking lot of a Chipotle restaurant when the owner shouted at him, leading him to run off – and out of the black Crocs he was wearing. The victim tracked Giordano to a discount shoe store, where a deputy approached him and found he was carrying a brand-new pair of shoes and sporting a big stain that he'd created when he peed himself in fear.
Giordano offered an explanation, according to the police report. He said he thought the Toyota Tundra was his because he "used to have a truck." (South Florida Sun Sentinel)
