Losing his religion

CHURCH TRUCKGod is watch­ing this one for sure! A New Mex­ico man made a lot of folks cross ear­lier this week when he decided to take rob­bing a church to a new level and drove off with the entire church attached to his truck!  The man, who’s still at large, parked in front of New City Church, an Albu­querque insti­tu­tion that’s housed in a small trailer, hitched it to his vehi­cle and sped off the lot where the pas­tor had been stor­ing it. Rev­erend Nate Bush says that the trailer housed micro­phones, musi­cal instru­ments and reli­gious gear – as well as a few dozen toys he’d been col­lect­ing for the annual Christ­mas drive.  

Two women flagged down a cop to report that Shawn Harvell came up to them with his pants unzipped and pre­tended to be a “helicopter.”When he saw cops, Harvell tried to walk away then insisted he did noth­ing ille­gal but merely tried to dis­cuss a finan­cial dis­pute with the women. He was cuffed and charged with pub­lic inde­cency, resist­ing law enforce­ment and crim­i­nal con­fine­ment – because he grabbed the woman by the arm dur­ing the incident.

The Volu­sia County Sheriff’s Office said Eric Willard, 23, attempted to break into a Pub­lix super­mar­ket in Ormond Beach after he and his mother were ejected from a local bar for argu­ing loudly. Willard, who was ear­lier given a tres­pass warn­ing when he tried to return to the bar was unable to force his way into the Pub­lix store, so he climbed onto the roof of the neigh­bor­ing Bealls Out­let and attempted to enter the build­ing through an air con­di­tion­ing con­duit and ended up falling through the ceil­ing of the store.  Willard exited the store with­out tak­ing any­thing, the sheriff’s office said.  The deputy who issued Willard the tres­pass warn­ing at the bar rec­og­nized his image in sur­veil­lance videos taken by cam­eras at the
Pub­lix and Bealls Out­let and the sus­pect was soon arrested, offi­cials said.
