The things we do for love - In Brown­helm Town­ship, Ohio, a man drove a stolen semi truck through the front wall of the local Adult­Mart store – and made off with an $800 toy.  Amaz­ingly, this isn’t the first time such a thing has hap­pened at Adult­Mart. “This time it wasn’t a car – this time it was a tractor-trailer,” said store man­ager April Hoopes. After nab­bing the life-sized sex doll, the guy bailed out of his truck and took off. He and the doll are still at large.  Maybe they’re head­ing to Vegas!

Rob­bers vs. Rob­bers - A guy try­ing to steal cop­per and other metal from an aban­doned hos­pi­tal in Eng­land­spent five hours in an air duct hid­ing from … another guy try­ing to steal cop­per and other metal!  The first crook climbed into the duct when he heard sus­pi­cious noises that led him to believe cops were search­ing for him, when, in fact, it was another bur­glar with the same idea. Police ulti­mately were called to the scene, where they found one crook in hid­ing, and the other perched on the hos­pi­tal roof.  Both men are headed to court in late October.

But mom says it’s OK - A New Hamp­shire­man, Matthew Sor­diff stuffed baby wipes, baby for­mula and other items into a dia­per bag and tried to get away qui­etly, but a store employee inter­vened. The 21-year-old then dropped the bag and placed his three-month-old daugh­ter gen­tly on the ground before flee­ing on foot.  He and the baby’s mother, who was also involved in the inci­dent, were both arrested the same day. Sordiff’s mom said, “My son is a very good father. Matt got scared and he ran because he thought he had war­rants he never took care of.”  He’s steal­ing AND aban­don­ing his baby!
