The Drug Enforcement Administration seized hundreds of knock-off Disney figurines as they were being shipped from Mexico to Atlanta. Investigators reported finding about 500 pounds of meth, worth $2 million, inside the figurines shaped like popular cartoon characters near Gwinnett County, Georgia. The shipment consisted of hundreds of ceramic-like Disney figurines mixed in with wax figures that were filled with meth. The real figurines had characters like Winnie the Pooh, Donald Duck and Pluto. The well-known characters were allegedly used as a "cover load" to try to hide the illegal figurines. Multiple law enforcement agencies worked with the DEA and Homeland Security to pull off what officials are calling one of the biggest drug busts in Gwinnett County history.

A young man in Hollywood, California climbed a tall construction crane some 200 feet above Hollywood Boulevard and stayed up there for hours before safely coming down Sunday night. The spectacle attracted a mass of spectators on the ground watching as police officers and firefighters worked to try to convince the man to come down on his own. The man was not wearing shoes or a shirt and he was draped in an American flag. He was spotted climbing and moving around on cables above the crane and slowly descending, then stopping on a platform for more than an hour as he shouted and gestured at the ground and waved the flag. An urban search and rescue team joined firefighters and police officers who were trying to convince the man to come down. After about three hours, police said they had the man safely in custody on the ground. He was being treated by paramedics. (
