crime: November 2010 Archives

Most shoplifters try to discretely slip products into their pocket or bag… but not this one she had a more blatant approach.

Police in Ohio say Nakita Norman was arrested after being caught on CCTV cameras stuffing two fur coats in her trousers.

After casually walking around the store Norman removed the security tags from two coats while another man and woman distracted staff.

Then she opened her coat, lowered her trousers and proceeded to stuff the bulky fur coats - valued at £3,200 - into the legs.

Amazingly the 44-year-old was able to leave the store unnoticed… even though she had suddenly developed a slightly funny walk.

Police in Turkey say they've busted a bizarre gang of crooks who were stealing sheep from the back of moving trucks.

And in a bid to prevent further crimes, the officers then got them to re-enact their crime for a video which has been uploaded to YouTube.

Officers say the arrests were made after they discovered the gang were driving behind sheep-carrying tucks on a motorbike and cart.

One gang member would then climb onto the moving truck and start unloading sheep into the cart without the driver knowing.

Officers claim getting the gang to recreate the crime on video is to  dissuade others from similar crimes… but we all know they really just want more views for their account.

275x250.jpgA police marksman is being investigated after allegedly inserting song lyrics into evidence at the inquest of a lawyer who was shot dead.

The officer, known only as AZ8, had given evidence into the death of Mark Saunders, who was shot by police marksmen following an armed stand-off in London.

But while a jury recently ruled Saunders had been killed lawfully, the Metropolitan police firearms officer is now at the centre of a investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

It is alleged that, while giving evidence under oath, he deliberately inserted song titles into his verbal testimony.

He has currently been removed from operational firearms duty… at which point he probably started humming Put Your Gun Away by Ms. Dynamite.
