a penny for your thoughts...
Police in Ontario pulled over the 55-year-old man because his tail lights were out and because they suspected him of driving drunk. The officer then saw him put something in his mouth. So he asked to see what it was, and the man showed him a penny. The officer asked him to hand it over, but he swallowed it.
It is believed that sucking on a penny could throw off a breathalyzer and help a drunk driver pass a sobriety test. But it didn't work. The guy was arrested for drunk driving as well as obstruction for swallowing the penny.
now that's cheesy!
The shipment was bound for a Hungry Howie's Pizza distribution center, but the driver stopped off to have a mechanic check on the truck. At some point, while the trailer was left unattended, someone came along and took it. Police say a hauler had been reported stolen from the same truck stop a day earlier and believe it may have been used to steal the trailer of cheese.
So far, cops haven't been able to find the truck and are asking the public for help. The missing trailer has white mud flaps and Michigan license plates, and is likely being driven by someone who isn't lactose intolerant
case closed, and stolen...
Quashanda Wolfe reportedly cut through a security cable that was attached to a counter-top display case, hoisted the three-foot case into her oversized shopping cart and wheeled it right out the front door. Security cameras caught her snipping the wires on a second display, but she left that one behind because it contained less valuable trinkets than the $9000 worth of earrings she hoped to get away with.
After being transported to jail, Wolfe told officers she'd planned to hock the swiped goods so she could buy "stuff" for her child.
