crime: April 2012 Archives

275x250.jpg Police in California say a burglar made himself comfortable after breaking into a family's home -- he drank their champagne and then took a shower.

In fact the naked burglar was still in the shower when the family returned home and called 911 and he was still in the shower and lathered up when officers arrived.

Officers -- who arrested the 25-year-old at gunpoint -- say he had also helped himself to a meal at the Mojave Desert community home before jumping in the shower.

A spokesperson for San Bernardino County sheriff reportedly said the man was jailed with bail set at $25,000. You could say he is in hot water.


Vietnamese traffic cop Nguyen Manh Phan was determined to get his man. How determined? you ask. Well let's put it this way, he clung onto the windshield wipers of a moving bus for nearly a mile.


The unstoppable traffic officer had ordered a driver in Hanoi, Vietnam to stop for driving on the wrong side of the road. But after being told to produce his papers the driver jumped back on the bus.

In a bid to stop him, Phan stepped in front of the vehicle. However that didn't work and the driver started the vehicle… so Phan grabbed the windscreen wipers as the bus started moving.

As this video shows, he was then left clinging onto the vehicle as it drove for about a mile before the driver eventually pulled over and was arrested.

275x250.jpg Caffeine-crazed crooks in Austria could be wired for some times after apparently making off with a 1814kg haul of of coffee.

Police say the gang broke into a wholesaler and coffee-roaster's warehouse where they proceeded to load a van with beans and drive off.

It's been reported that the vehicle and contents were worth more than £45,000… so about the same as two coffees from Starbucks.


A teenage burglar has been arrested after he was caught strutting his stuff on CCTV… and he dance moves were recognised.


The 16-year-old from Texas was apparently filmed as at scene of a burglary, during which an amphibious duck tour vehicle was broken into.

Police released the footage and soon received a call from a local high school… where the suspect was recognised from his dancing in school corridors.

The smooth criminal was later arrested after his mother was shown a copy of the dancing video and called him out of his bedroom.

275x250.jpg Five people have been arrested in China after a teenager who sold his kidney so he could buy an iPhone and iPad, suffered renal failure, it's been reported.

It's claimed the 17-year-old was last April recruited online for the illegal trade and received about $3,000 for his kidney -- while the gang made $35,000.

The dumb donor was only discovered when his mother noticed the new gadgets and asked he how he could afford them.

But now the gang involved have been identified and charged with causing intentional injury and illegal organ trading/

Prosecutors in Hunan say the lad, identified only as Wang, issuffering renal failure… it's not known if he's upgraded from an iPad 2 to a iPad 3.

275x250.jpg A deliveryman who was dropping off a package of medical marijuana in California was ambushed by a pair of ninjas.

It's been reported that the men -- complete with black ninja costumes and batons -- frightened the deliveryman enough to cause him to drop his marijuana-filled bag.

He claims they then grabbed the bag, stole his cannabis and fled on foot.

It's understood the men, described by West Covina Police Department as being in their 20s and around 5 feet 8 inches tall, are still at large.

That is unless the whole ninja story was a drug-prompted hallucination.
