Wednesday 1/30


A Cana­dian man who’d just arrived in Bar­rie, Ontario, after a 12-hour bus ride from Mon­treal whipped out his cell phone after dis­em­bark­ing and called 911 to report a miss­ing per­son – the woman who stood him up after meet­ing him online and sug­gest­ing they hook up! The man said that he’d been chat­ting with the gal for some time and thought it was time for them to take their rela­tion­ship to the next level – so he hopped aboard the bus for the 385-mile jaunt. When there was no sign of her at the ter­mi­nal, he freaked out and called 911, ask­ing that cops track down the woman in ques­tion. When the dis­patcher reminded him that 911 wasn’t really the right place to call for roman­tic advice, he became even angrier, but he wasn’t arrested – just warned to go some­place for the night to cool off.

The good news: US bor­der agents have seized some 14,151 pounds
of mar­i­juana.  The humor­ously depress­ing news: The 26-year-old man busted with the pot fig­ured it was no big deal to just drive some 600 bales of it across the US bor­der in a tractor-trailer. Agents at the bor­der cross­ing in Nogales, Ariz., seized the pot, worth some $12 mil­lion, last week. The dri­ver is being inves­ti­gated by immi­gra­tion and cus­toms authorities.

Dye pack explosionA woman attempted to rob two banks in sub­ur­ban New York City demand­ing $5000! The TD Bank teller took it in stride and “directed the sus­pect to a cus­tomer ser­vices rep­re­sen­ta­tive.”  She actu­ally went and sat down at the representative’s desk while the first teller pushed an alarm but­ton.  The rob­ber fled from the build­ing and about 30 min­utes later vis­ited another TD Bank branch nearby, this time claim­ing she had a bomb when she demanded cash. The teller com­plied and handed her the cash in a bag that con­tained a dye pack that exploded and cov­ered the flee­ing woman with ink!  She was later seen dump­ing the money and police say, “She didn’t do well.”
