WEIRD NEWS: Something Fishy About This Theft
A Florida man is hoping not to get a raw deal when he goes on trial for shoplifting – after getting busted stuffing a tray of supermarket sushi down his pants.
Anthony Arnold Poucher walked into a Publix market and picked up a sampler of raw fish and sushi rolls, then tried to hide it down the front of his jean. But a security guard noticed something was fishy and stopped him before he could leave the store.
Poucher told officers that he was homeless and had no cash for food, and he swiped the $12 worth of sushi because that’s how he rolls.
He’s due in court early next month to answer the theft charges. (NWF Daily News)
WEIRD NEWS: Shirt Gets Him Cuffed
A wanna-be bank robber in Colorado ended up getting cuffed because of his choice of shirt – which had his name prominently displayed on the front.
John David Martinez strolled into a Wells-Fargo branch wearing a polo shirt with his name printed on it, then approached a teller to hand her a bag and a note telling her to fill it with money or else. She complied, but a surveillance camera captured his image, while an outdoor camera caught his license plate as well – giving cops enough evidence to find Martinez in less than five hours.
The police report says that the 68-year-old was concerned because “he told his wife that he had borrowed the money and did not tell her that he had robbed the bank.” He was booked on felony robbery charges the same day. (UPI)
WEIRD NEWS: Another Fine Meth!
Cops didn’t need a crystal ball to file drug charges against an Oklahoma woman – since she called them to complain that someone had laced her crystal meth with something weird.
Lynette Rae Sampson called 911 to say that she needed someone to come out and check on a tin of meth that she had sitting out on her kitchen counter. When an officer arrived on the scene, she took him over to where she’d stashed the drug and said she suspected that there was something unhealthy mixed in with it.
When Sampson opened the tin, the officer observed a hollowed out lightbulb and two baggies, all filled with the drug, and began questioning the woman. According to the police report, she began sweating profusely and saying she was hearing voices – then admitted she’d smoked some meth just before calling the cops.
A police spokesman said, “Once you think you’ve seen it all, something new will surprise you.” (Enid News)
WEIRD NEWS: Teen Has 232 Teeth Removed
If you’ve ever had a tooth pulled you know that it’s no picnic. But imagine what it would be like to have multiple teeth pulled, like say – 232 of them!
A teenager in India recently underwent a seven-hour surgery on his gums to have 232 tiny teeth removed. Doctors say Ashik Gavai’s condition is very rare (uh, you think?) and was likely the result of a benign tumor in the gum, which caused the formation of tiny teeth. The extractions have left the boy with 28 teeth in his mouth. (BBC News)
WEIRD NEWS: Raging Heifer on the Loose
Police in Sweden are warning residents about a rampaging pregnant cow that’s on the loose.
This heated heifer somehow broke free from a farm and has so far sent two men to the hospital. One of them was reportedly head-butted by the cow and the other was dragged along the ground. Police arrived at the scene but the cow had already escaped. A police spokesperson is warning, “The cow is about to give birth and is irritable.” Her poor husband. (Sweden’s The Local)
WEIRD NEWS: Drunk Passenger Tries to Open Wrong Door
A drunk airline passenger is in trouble … and all he did was try to use the plane’s bathroom.
Tomasz Mucha of Poland enjoyed a few beers and some vodka on his flight from Krakow, Poland, to Dublin, Ireland, and got up to use the bathroom. He pulled on the door but it wasn’t opening. And it wasn’t because the bathroom was occupied. It’s because he was actually pulling on the plane’s emergency door. He was able to lift the door handle but fortunately couldn’t get the door open and the flight crew escorted him back to his seat.
When the plane landed he was arrested and eventually slapped with a hefty fine. Strangely enough, this was his very first time on a plane. (UK Daily Mail)
