That's A LOT of guac. Here's 'Crappy News' for Friday, September 22nd.
Steamboat Springs, CO- A man was arrested for stealing a Christmas tree. In September.
23-year-old Micah Anderson got drunk and broke into his neighbor's condo last weekend. Anderson's roommates told police that he returned home with a variety of items, including towels, toilet paper, books, a DVD...and the Christmas tree.

I hate to side against the victim of a crime, but if you ALREADY have your Christmas decorations up, I just can't feel sorry for you. I hope no one breaks into this house next month to steal the Fourth of July decorations.
LaPorte, IN- A thief got caught in a very embarrassing way.
33-year-old Sean Harris went into a gas station last Wednesday, implied that he had a gun, and stole some drinks, snacks and cigarettes before taking off.
Police found Harris a short time later stranded by the side of the highway...because his getaway car had run out of gas. Harris' blood alcohol level was above the legal limit, and he was arrested for felony robbery. [ABC News]

38-year-old Joseph Valenzuela, 30-year-old Rahim Leblanc & 28-year-old Carlos Chavez were arrested after allegedly selling $300,000 of avocados without authorization from the produce facility where they worked.

I was unaware that there was a black market for avocados. And what exactly do you do with that many avocados? I bet their Cinco de Mayo parties are on fleek.
