Thursday 9/13

Emer­gency respon­ders in Swe­den who were rush­ing to the scene of a reported gas leak found out that there was some­thing fishy at the scene – lit­er­ally. The call, which resulted in the evac­u­a­tion of a Stock­holm sub­urb, turned up noth­ing more explo­sive than a bucket of fer­mented her­ring – a noto­ri­ously stinky con­coc­tion pop­u­lar at fall fes­ti­vals in the Scan­di­na­vian country.

Penn­syl­va­nia Cops grew sus­pi­cious when they spot­ted Leonard Tay­lor sit­ting on the stoop of a burned out house, hold­ing a bag of meat and count­ing out money. The offi­cers approached Tay­lor, who told them he’d been handed the deli meat by a cou­ple who he’d been drink­ing with at a nearby bar until they accom­pa­nied him out­side for a cig­a­rette, then left, promis­ing to return in a few min­utes. When they searched Tay­lor, the deputies found a num­ber of receipts that helped them retrace his steps, lead­ing to the ran­sacked eatery – and to his arrest on bur­glary charges

FL res­i­dent David Weber broke into a car in a park­ing garage, then went down the street to The Cleve­lander to cel­e­brate the heist with a cold one – but when he handed over the card, the bar­keep quickly rec­og­nized his own name on the front and called cops. Weber, who is home­less, told offi­cers he found the credit card on the ground. He was arrested and booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail on charges of theft and fraud.
