Tuesday 2/26


A British woman said she was reach­ing into her glove com­part­ment to fish some­thing out when she got trapped and pan­icked! A fire­man who arrived on the scene said he was able to remove a watch from her wrist, allow­ing her to wrig­gle free with­out harm. A fire depart­ment spokesman said, “We don’t train for some­thing exactly like this, but we will always be able get peo­ple free somehow.”

chicken soupA Vir­ginia woman made no bones about want­ing to press charges after she said some­one flew the coop with a chicken that she had stew­ing in a crock pot while she was away from her house. The woman called 911 to report that some­one stole her stew­ing chicken, but leav­ing the veg­eta­bles and cook­ing liq­uid behind in the slow cooker. Cops ini­tially thought a pet might have been involved in the caper, but after grilling the woman, they found that she lived in an animal-free home. A spokesper­son for the Arling­ton police depart­ment said, “We sus­pect ‘fowl’ play.”

An Iowa man could’ve used less ink­ing and more think­ing after get­ting busted for break­ing into a lin­gerie store and strip­ping stark naked, show­ing off a tat­too bear­ing his name, before flee­ing the scene with an arm­ful of clothes. Jose Perales busted into the busi­ness shortly after four a.m. and walked into the manager’s office, where he shed his threads and began try­ing on items off the racks. A sur­veil­lance video cap­tured the dis­tinc­tive body ink, as well as images of Perales walk­ing out with a dress, a wig and a bag of other mer­chan­dise. Cops matched the tat to images from Perales’ prior mugshots and went to his house, where they found him and the stolen prop­erty. He faces a bur­glary charge that could net him five years behind bars.
