Hey, I know that lady!

Work­ers at an upscale leather store in Cal­i­for­nia didn’t need a sur­veil­lance cam­era to iden­tify a shoplifter sabina– they just turned on the local news … where she works as a reporter. Sabina Rodriguez, who works for a Fox sta­tion in Sacra­mento, was busted last week when a Coach employee channel-flipped her way onto a report and rec­og­nized her as the per­son respon­si­ble for steal­ing 10 or so wal­lets from the store. She turned her­self in and was charged with grand theft, bur­glary and conspiracy.

A 48-year-old Irish­man hopes to have many more years left on earth, but he’s plan­ning his own funeral now … because he wants it to be a cel­e­bra­tion. Anto Wick­ham has spent about $5,000 to con­struct a cof­fin made to look exactly like a bot­tle of Jack Daniel’s. He says he doesn’t want a “nor­mal funeral” (obvi­ously) and thought being buried in his favorite liquor would be funny and dif­fer­ent. He also wants to ask Guin­ness to trans­port his body inside the cof­fin to the ceme­tery in one of their deliv­ery vans. Wick­ham, who is a for­mer Irish sol­dier who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, says he started think­ing about his own death after los­ing eight of his colleagues.

Mass­a­chu­setts man Tim­o­thy Schoener took his girl­friend and their two-year-old child on the not-so-excellent adven­ture, which unfolded in the mid­dle of the day. A mail car­rier, who’d heard reports of bur­glar­ies on his route, called cops when he saw a sus­pi­cious look­ing man enter the home – and when the offi­cers arrived on the scene, Schoener’s girl­friend drove off, leav­ing him stranded! When police caught up with her, she told them that Schoener had got­ten lost, and gone into the house to ask for direc­tions, but he ended up con­fess­ing after they spot­ted him hid­ing under a pile of dirty laundry.
