Maryland man Ryan Trembly put his finger under his shirt in an attempt to mimic a gun at a beauty salon but the receptionist wasn’t buying it and gave him the boot.

The receptionist noted the license number of the car that picked him up – and cops traced it to his mom’s house, where he was arrested.
Perhaps the most incredible result to come from a parent monitoring her child’s Facebook page: A Salt Lake mom intercepted a plan where two teens were allegedly going to shoot her son! The mom called the police officer who serves as resource officer at West High School and told him about the posts. The detective says there was also a picture of a gun posted to Instagram, and the hand holding it had gang-affiliated letters written on it. Police officers searched the school and the surrounding area around 2pm, and found the teens who allegedly made the threats in a car parked nearby—along with,
allegedly, the pictured gun, ammo, drugs, and lots of money. Police believe the boys, ages 16 and 17, were waiting there in order to confront their intended target after school. They were booked on various charges; the incident is suspected to be gang-related.
Cops in a western Canadian town are hoping to sock it to a pervert who’s been randomly flagging down female motorists to inform them that he was in possession of pantyhose.

He also offered to sell some hose to one of the gals.
