Happy Hump Day! Here are today's top stories:
A shoplifter does a great job of blending in, a cop is a creeper and a peeper, and a lady stockpiles sex pills...
Alexandria, VA- A woman masqueraded as a Target employee and made off with a huge haul.
Security footage shows the woman walking into the store March 15th wearing a black polo and khaki pants. She then grabbed a box from the storage room, filled it with more than $40,000 worth of iPhones, and left.
Police say the suspect--despite not being an actual employee--was familiar with store policies, employee hours, and where the phones were kept. She has not been found. [Consumerist]
If you're going to try to pull something like this off, you have to do a lot of planning. So you have to give her a little bit of credit...even if she's committing a felony.
Long Island, NY- An NYPD detective has been arrested for indecent exposure.
46-year-old Robert Francis was caught this weekend after a neighborhood called in several reports of a window peeper. Francis had reportedly been shining a flashlight into women's windows and then pleasuring himself.
The department had been investigating Francis since early February. Three of the complaints involved females under the age of 18.
He's getting charged with four counts of public lewdness and three counts of endangering the welfare of a minor. [NY Daily News]
Tax dollars hard at work. Emphasis on hard.
Brantford, ON, Canada- If you've ever heard that women aren't as interested in sex...this woman clearly disagrees.
A 48-year-old woman was busted for shoplifting last Wednesday. The only thing she tried to steal was a package of pills...FOR your package. The suspect was caught by a loss prevention officer emptying individual libido pills into her purse.
The woman gave police a fake name and she was also in possession of illegal prescription meds at the time of the arrest. [Brant News]
That's a woman willing to go the extra mile...she's a keeper.
