3 teens arrested for stealing dozens of pumpkins
Three suspects were arrested in Maryland Heights for stealing dozens of pumpkins from area homes. Police caught them in a car loaded with 49 pumpkins. Robin Swahlstedt’s pumpkin was taken. She picked up her two stolen pumpkins from police headquarters Wednesday afternoon. She has surveillance video of one of the pumpkin thieves at work, taking them right off her front porch.
Police say it happened around 1:30 am Wednesday morning in two Maryland Heights subdivisions.
As police responded to calls about the thefts, Sgt. Jamie White went to a third subdivision on a hunch. And that’s when he found a small sedan loaded up with people and pumpkins. Officer Erica Stough is a spokeswoman for Maryland Heights Police, “Jammed pack that’s what it was they were all crammed in their it was amazing to see 49 pumpkins with three guys in that car…it’s good police work he’s been doing his job a long time it’s good police work.”
The suspects are all male, two are 18 the other is 16-years-old. Police are not sure of their motive. The pumpkins aren’t worth a fortune. Stough said, “$150 to a group of teens is a lot of money, especially high school kids I don’t know if they were going to sell them or prank somebody.”
Robin Swahlstedt said she was not happy with the thieves, “It’s ignorant, it’s mean and it’s ignorant.” She gave a big thumbs up to police for their quick work.
Woman who prompted ‘active threat’ alert at Mizzou found off campus
The University of Missouri reports there is no longer a threat to the university after the woman who prompted the warning was found off campus.
The university issued an alert around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday because police were investigating a possibly suicidal woman, reported to have a handgun, who was seen walking near campus.
Around 12:10 p.m., the university said the subject’s phone was being pinged and she was believed to be in the White Campus area. About 35 minutes later, officials recommended those on campus to shelter in place and those not on campus to avoid the area.
Just before 1 p.m., the university said law enforcement had located the subject, who was safe, and there was no longer a threat.
Chipotle Is Doing $3 Burritos on Halloween
Getting a week’s worth of calories for three bucks seems like a pretty good deal to me.
Chipotle is offering a deal on Halloween where they’ll give you a burrito for $3. There’s just two conditions . . . you have to go in after 3:00 P.M. on the 31st and you have to be wearing a costume.
And I’ll give you bonus points if you REALLY pick a costume that will scare the people at Chipotle . . . like a health inspector or a strain of E.coli.
The Mandalay Bay security guard who was described as “missing” in recent news reports has turned up on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where he taped his first public account of being wounded as he responded to Stephen Paddock’s deadly shooting rampage in Las Vegas.
In a segment broadcast on Wednesday, Jesus Campos described how he was called to check on an open door near Paddock’s suite on the 32nd floor of the hotel and casino, and how he was struck by gunfire moments before the shooter unleashed a fusillade of bullets on a crowd of concertgoers below.
“As I was walking down, I heard rapid fire, and at first I took cover,” Campos said. “I felt a burning sensation. I went to go lift my pant leg up and I saw the blood. That’s when I called it in on my radio that shots have been fired.”
Excerpts from the show were first published by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Campos’s remarks didn’t deviate from what police and hotel officials have said publicly about the Oct. 1 attack, which left 58 people dead and more than 500 injured, but did offer a clear narrative about what Campos experienced that night.
