Tuesday 1/22

An Alabama man, Phillip Sawdey approached the Star­bucks cashier, unarmed, and demanded that she give him all the cash on hand, but she replied that she was unable to open the reg­is­ter. When he objected, the employee said she’d give him a dose of caf­feine instead, which he accepted and walked out of the store. Cops found him a short time later, sip­ping his bev­er­age in a park­ing lot, and arrested him for rob­bery with­out inci­dent..

donkeyA trio of thieves nearly got away with rob­bing a con­ve­nience store in Colom­bia when their get­away don­key ruined every­thing! The three had man­aged to steal tuna, sar­dines, rum, rice, and oil from a lit­tle shop when the donkey’s bray­ing alerted police. The thieves quickly aban­doned their stolen goods—already loaded on 10-year-old Xavi—and ran off into the night. Police detained the don­key, which had also been stolen, for about 12 hours until the owner showed up to take him home.

A Florida cou­ple was hauled off to jail after ask­ing a Wal-Mart employee for help in load­ing up a big screen tv into their car.  Terry Wayne Davis and Tearra Sander were busted thanks to a sur­veil­lance tape showed them mak­ing the steal, then ask­ing for assis­tance in get­ting it into the trunk. When they returned for a sec­ond round of shop­ping, store secu­rity called cops, who stopped their car – only to have Sander admit to the theft, and offer to return the TV in exchange for leniency.  The store man­ager declined, and decided to press charges – mark­ing the ninth arrest for the pair, who remain jailed, unable to make bail.
