Author­i­ties in Ohio are on the look­out for a ninja who robbed an Ohio hotel. The male sus­pect, who was dressed in a black ninja cos­tume, jumped over the counter at the Hol­i­day Inn Express in Mil­ford and told the female clerk to lie face down on the ground. He then pro­ceeded to take cash from the hotel office. After tak­ing the money, the way­ward war­rior fled the scene. No one was injured dur­ing the rob­bery, accord­ing to officials.

A three-year-old boy in Cal­i­for­nia wound up in the hos­pi­tal after eat­ing some of his grannny’s cook­ies … her mar­i­juana cook­ies. The grand­mother, who has can­cer and was pre­scribed mar­i­juana by her doc­tor, had baked a batch of the pot pas­tries a week ear­lier and had stored them in a garage fridge. The fam­ily had no idea that the boy had got­ten into the cook­ies − but knew some­thing was wrong when he wouldn’t get out of bed, even after sleep­ing 16 hours. He was taken to the hos­pi­tal for obser­va­tion and released later the same day. Police are await­ing tox­i­col­ogy results. If mar­i­juana is found in the toddler’s sys­tem, the fam­ily could face child endan­ger­ment charges.

Police say they fol­lowed a trail of potato chips to catch a south­west­ern Penn­syl­va­nia bur­glary sus­pect. Wash­ing­ton police say 21-year-old Ben­jamin Sick­les was arrested after he allegedly broke into a Sub­way restau­rant and stole sev­eral bags of snacks.  Inves­ti­ga­tors say Sick­les broke a glass door before try­ing to open the cash reg­is­ter. They say he made off with nine bags of chips after he couldn’t get to the cash.  Offi­cers say they fol­lowed a trail of chip bags to Sick­les, who had a bloody hand and foot when he was taken into cus­tody.  Sick­les is being held at the Wash­ing­ton County Prison on $30,000 bail.
