A Texas woman found out that it's not easy spending green, when Wal-Mart security guards detained her for several hours and destroyed her property – after she tried to spend two legitimate 100 dollar bills.
Julia Garcia was shopping when she handed the bill to a cashier – only to have that employee call a summit, then return to her station, rip up the Benjamin and berate Garcia for trying to pass funny money ... without actually checking the authenticity with legit equipment.
Garcia took out a second bill, and the store manager immediately ripped it up and called cops – who arrived with testing devices and informed them that they'd made "a terrible mistake" in shredding Garcia's cold, hard cash.
The manager attempted to send Garcia off with the pieces of her original bills, but an officer on the scene insisted he give her clean crisp replacements – an order that angered him. Garcia is now suing for $75,000 in damages (Daily Mail)
A Florida couple thought they were out of luck when their beagle ate $300 in cash. But they were able to get back the dough by collecting the dog's "deposits."
Corey and Hope O'Kelley of Largo said their 10-year-old beagle, Arnie, chowed down on the bills while they were sleeping, and they realized the only way to get the money back would be to collect the pieces when he did his business.
They took Arnie on extra walks and were "relentless" about picking up his doggie doo.
Hope O'Kelley said she was really happy when Arnie sped things along by vomiting up some of the green. "We found a pile of vomit, and I was like, 'Yes,'" she said.
The O'Kelley's diligence paid off. The bank agreed to replace the cash since they were able to put the bills back together well enough to read the serial numbers. (UPI)
A Florida man gave new meaning to the phrase "hot pants" when he was caught burning the packaging off items at a department store and shoving the goods into his trousers.
Byron Harvey was nabbed by cops who discovered about $450 worth of stuff, including shoes, hats, cologne and a watch, tucked into his shorts. They also found some unidentified prescription drugs, which Harvey said belonged to his girlfriend, who often wears his pants.
Harvey became combative with arresting officers, but soon lost steam, confessing he'd been up for three days "drinking and doing powder and pills." He faces a variety of charges (TC Palm)
