SWAT TEAM DESCENDS TO FIND SLEEPING MAN
10/10/2010







A massive force sent to nab a suspected burglar in a Montreal suburb found the man sleeping in the attic, police said.
 
Police arrested the 35-year-old suspect in Pointe Claire Saturday morning after receiving a call from someone who said he heard noises, The (Montreal) Gazette reported.

After the resident of Pointe Claire's Cedar Park neighborhood phoned police at 6 a.m., six police cars, an ambulance and a small special-weapons-and-tactics squad arrived and cordoned off the street.

After a 5-hour siege, police went inside and found the man sleeping in the attic.


AMBULANCE STOLEN WITH RELATIVE INSIDE
10/10/2010










A man with 32 previous arrests has been charged with stealing an ambulance in Chicago while paramedics worked on a relative in the back, officials said.

Jimmy McCoy, 27, "probably thought he was helping" when he took off in the ambulance Saturday, Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said in a Chicago Sun-Times report.

McCoy said he "thought he could get to the hospital quicker," as paramedics worked on a relative in the rear of the ambulance, the report said.

The male and female paramedics on the ambulance radioed in, saying: "This is ambulance 23. Our ambulance has been stolen, and we are in the back with a patient,'' Langford said.

A fire truck dispatched along with the ambulance was able to block an intersection just three blocks away, where McCoy was arrested and charged with felony unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle, the newspaper said.

The relative was being treated for a diabetic condition, and was taken to a hospital in another ambulance; no one was injured in the incident, officials said.

MAN PULLS GUN OVER ALLEGED BANANA THEFT
10/08/2010













An 85-year-old Florida man who pulled a gun on his neighbor over the alleged theft of bananas faces a felony charge, police say.
 
A 58-year-old resident of Port St. Lucie told police Wednesday he was cleaning up branches and yard debris in his back yard when his neighbor accused him of stealing bananas from his tree, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.

Joseph Giacomo, 85, allegedly pointed a pistol at his head and threatened to kill him, the neighbor told police.

Giacomo told police he confronted his neighbor along the fence line that divides their properties and asked him why he was carrying a "big stick."

"Mr. Giacomo believed that (his neighbor) was using the stick to knock bananas off of his tree and keeping them for himself," a police report said.

The neighbor denied allegations of banana thievery and Giacomo left the yard and returned to his house.

Police responding to the incident arrested Giacomo on a charge of felony aggravated assault with a firearm.

He was released Thursday on $2,500 bail, police said.


MAN FAKED ROBBERTY TO AVOID REPAYING LOAN
10/08/2010










Police in Florida said a 25-year-old man told them he falsified an armed robbery to avoid repaying a $400 loan from his mother.

Boynton Beach Police said Leon Murray told officers he was robbed of $400 cash, a bank card and a .45-caliber Taurus handgun Sept. 20, but he later admitted during questioning that he invented the story because of the debt, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Friday.

Investigators said the handgun Murray reported stolen had been pawned several months earlier.

Murray was charged with one count of making a false report to law enforcement and arrested on an unrelated misdemeanor warrant, police said

HE CALLED 911 BECAUSE HIS MARIJUANA WAS STOLEN








21-year-old Calvin Hoover of Salem, Oregon had a big problem (several of them actually) on his hands. First of all, someone had broken into his truck and stole his jacket and some of his cash. Then, he really got mad when he realized that in the pocket of the stolen jacket was where he put his big bag of marijuana. 

The night was not going well for Hoover. He had just left the bar where he dropped a bunch of money on all the hard liquor that his stupid bloodstream could handle – then he found that his weed was gone. So he did what any totally wasted idiot would do – he called 911 to report the theft of his precious marijuana. 

While waiting for the police, he called 911 again to complain that the cops had not yet arrived. The dispatcher had trouble understanding Hoover because he was attempting to drive his truck and puke at the same time. He was arrested and charged with drunk driving.
