crime: December 2010 Archives

You'd have thought he'd be busy making last minute preparations for tonight - but this surveillance footage shows Santa is still finding time to fight crime.

Police in Sicilly say this footage shows a policeman arresting a suspected mafia member who was collecting protection money from a shopkeeper.

The video - shot with hidden cameras - shows the alleged mobster going into the store and taking money from the cashier.

But as he walks out and to his car he is jumped on by undercover officer, and one in a less inconspicuous red Santa costume.

So far police haven't explained why the officers was dressed as Santa. By which we obviously mean (if any kids are reading this), police haven't explained why Santa was helping them out.


A police officer picking up CCTV footage of robbery, accidentally stumbled into the scene of another robbery.

The cop had been called to an Ohio pharmacy to collect security footage of a robbery which had taken place earlier that evening.

But as CCTV footage shows, when Officer Joshua Campbell got there he was required to do more than pick up a DVD… because another robbery was taking place.

As he got to the counter he saw another robber leaning over and grabbing money from the till - so he quickly drew his gun and wrestled with the man.

Speaking after the incident Officer Campbell said he'd thought: "This can't be happening"… which we guess is also what went through the mind of the robber.

Kurt Shore had be preparing to leave his office car-park when a colleague triggered the alarm causing him to run briefly back inside.

But in the 30 seconds it took him to get back to his car, a crook had jumped out of their own car and grabbed a laptop from his front seat.

Now, in a bid to retrieve the laptop which contains photos of his children, he's produced a reward poster offering a "fabulous drug stash" to whoever returns the computer.

The poster also features a image of marijuana and Kurt says he has 'high' hopes of getting his MacBook back.
