A Guy Shot Himself While Making a Bullet Necklace for Valentine's Day

 

Did you have a hard time finding something to buy for Valentine's Day this year?  You still did better than this dude . . .

 

 

A 50-year-old guy in Toronto was trying to make a necklace out of a BULLET on Tuesday.  Which is just what every girl wants.  (???)

 

 

Unfortunately, he wasn't careful enough while he was pulling it apart with vice grips.  So the bullet EXPLODED . . . and he accidentally shot himself in the leg.

 

 

The bullet and some of the casing fragments ended up in his thigh.  He had to have surgery to remove them, but he should be okay.

Man held with 1.2 kg gold in his rectum at airport

A man with 1.2 kg gold bar in his rectum was caught by the Air Intelligence Unit (AIU) sleuths of customs at the RGI Airport as he arrived from Singapore on Sunday. In all he had about 2 kg gold with him.

The 36-year-old smuggler from Tamil Nadu was taken in for questioning after his checked-in baggage which had LED lamps attracted the attention of the customs staff. When the officials opened the LED lamps in the presence of the offender, they found eight gold bars, weighing roughly 800 grams, deftly concealed inside the back covers of the lamps.

On further quizzing, the man denied carrying any more gold, so the customs sleuths subjected him to a thorough metal detector check and unearthed 12 gold bars weighing 1.2 kg in his rectum.

Valentine's Day jail visit doesn't go as planned for fraud suspect

A Valentine's visit for a woman looking to see her boyfriend at the South Central Regional Jail didn't go exactly as planned

Katrina Miller, 35, of Hamlin, now faces 14 felony charges.

According to a criminal complaint, on Dec. 22 the victim in the case voluntarily signed herself out of a nursing home where she received care around the clock.

The complaint states that a family member, who was also an employee at the nursing home, said she would care for the woman in her home.

When the victim arrived home, the employee and family member's daughter, Katrina Miller, arrived and said she would be the one caring for her. The victim didn't know her prior to this meeting. She told investigators that she was apprehensive about the situation but accepted it because she didn't want to spend the Christmas holiday in the nursing home.

Investigators say during that time Miller used the victim's credit card to supply her boyfriend, who is an inmate at the South Central Regional Jail, with money for the commissary, phone calls and other expenses, including video phone calls between the pair, while he was incarcerated.

On Jan. 2, West Virginia State Police troopers say Miller "abruptly abandoned" the incapacitated victim, leaving her with no care.

When she left, according to the criminal complaint, Miller took off with the victim's laptop computer, debit card, and cell phone.

Investigators determined that Miller had a prearranged visit at the jail with her incarcerated boyfriend on Tuesday, which was also Valentine's Day.

As Miller arrived at the jail in Kanawha County, she was met by First Sgt. Sean Wolf and Sgt. Les Boyteck with WVSP who took her into custody.

Miller is charged with one count of the exploitation of an incapacitated adult and 13 counts of computer fraud.

Miller was arraigned Tuesday afternoon in Kanawha County.

She was unable to post bond at that time. As a result, she ended up back at the South Central Regional Jail.

A Guy Hauling 36 Pounds of Meth Thinks He's Being Followed, and Calls the Cops

 

A 27-year-old guy was driving through Utah on Sunday, and thought two cars were following him.  So he pulled over at a rest stop and called the cops.

 

 

But when they showed up, they could tell he was on something.  So they searched his truck . . . and ended up finding some pot, and over 36 pounds of METH he was hauling.

 

 

Apparently he'd either been smoking pot or doing meth while he was driving, and that's why he got paranoid.  It's not clear if anyone was really following him or not.

 

 

When they asked for I.D., he gave them a passport that turned out to be fake.  They're still trying to figure out what his real name is.

 

 

He's facing charges for forgery, possession of marijuana, and possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute.

A Guy's Pet Squirrel Attacked a Burglar

 

  A guy in Boise, Idaho named Adam Pearl came home on Tuesday and realized someone had broken into his place.  (We don't know how old he is, but he looks like he's in his 40s.)

 

 

There were footprints in the snow outside his door, and a bunch of scratch marks around the lock on his gun safe.  So he knew someone had been there.

 

 

The guy who broke in didn't get the safe open though, and only took a few things from the house.  He could have stolen more, so it was weird.  But one of the cops figured out why when they caught him a few hours later.

 

 

They noticed he had a bunch of tiny scratches on his hands when they arrested him.  So they asked where they came from . . . and it turned out he got attacked by Adam's pet SQUIRREL.

 

 

The squirrel's name is Joey.  Adam doesn't keep him in a cage, he just lets him run around the house.

 

 

The guy said the squirrel wouldn't stop attacking him while he was looking for stuff to steal.  So that's why he didn't stick around longer.

 

 

There's no word on charges yet, but Adam ended up getting most of his stuff back.

A Man Accidentally Texts His Old Boss Looking For Help Killing His Wife

 

Well this is one way to make sure your old boss never gives you a good recommendation in the future.

 

 

There's a 42-year-old guy named Jeffrey Lytle from Monroe, Washington who decided he wanted to KILL HIS WIFE last week.  And apparently he'd met a hitman named Shayne a while back, and wanted to hire him to take care of it.

 

 

So he sent a text that said, quote, "You remember you said that you would help me kill my wife?  I'm going to take you up on that offer.  I'll split everything with the insurance 50-50."

 

 

His wife had a $1.5 million life insurance policy.  And Jeffrey also told Shayne he could take out their FOUR-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER, since she had a $500,000 life insurance policy.  Disgusting.

 

 

But . . . Jeffrey didn't send the texts to the hitman.  He accidentally sent them to his former BOSS.

 

 

So the boss called the cops on Tuesday night . . . and they arrested Jeffrey for criminal solicitation for first-degree murder.

 

 

He tried to tell them he didn't mean it, and he was just venting after a fight with his wife.

A Guy Tried to Rob a 7-Eleven . . . But Walks Out When He Sees How Little Money Is in the Register

 

 You know those signs that businesses put up to try to deter robbers that say things like, "Safe contains less than $50"?  Maybe those really ARE a good deterrent.

 

 

A guy walked into a 7-Eleven in Newport News, Virginia around 12:30 A.M. on Monday, pulled out a GUN, and demanded cash from the clerk.  The clerk opened up the register to give the guy the money.

 

 

But when the guy got a look at just how little cash was in the register, he CURSED . . . and stormed out empty handed.

 

 

There's no word on just how little money was in the register, but clearly it wasn't worth the trouble of actually following through on the robbery.

 

 

Police are trying to find him.
