Falt tire flub

flat rieThis man would soon learn the power of pay­ing atten­tion. Ari­zona man Ash­ton Pow­ers calmly walked up to a police cruiser in the wee hours of the morn­ing and pulled out a knife and cut into one if the cruis­ers tires. The offi­cer inside said that he heard the hiss­ing of air escap­ing and saw this guy calmly walk­ing away. A police spokesman says, “I don’t know what this guy was think­ing. It’s a fully marked police car, the car was run­ning, the offi­cer was inside!”  Pow­ers has been charged with one count of crim­i­nal damage.

Imran Cheema was an employee of Chase bank and told dis­trict judge Michael Wat­son that he stole some cash to impress his girl­friend before quit­ting his teller job last sum­mer. Cheema was caught a week later when the cash dis­penser, which tellers use to refill their draw­ers, was short $10,000.  $10,000???? Yeah, that’s going to go unno­ticed!  Cheema pleaded guilty to one count of embez­zling and in addi­tion to a night in prison, he was ordered to repay the money, which he has done. He could have been sen­tenced to 30 years in prison and ordered to pay a $1 mil­lion fine.

Roger Mirro, was search­ing for a mis­placed phone at his apart­ment in a Chicago sub­urb when he told his neigh­bor he thought it may have dropped down the garbage chute and asked for a key to the garbage room. When Mirro’s wife reported him miss­ing after she got home four hours later police retraced the man’s steps to find a lad­der lean­ing beside the trash com­pactor and his man­gled body inside, police say. The med­ical examiner’s office has also ruled the death an accident.
