A group of thieves in Australia have unwittingly live-streamed themselves allegedly stealing and taking drugs on surveillance cameras they pilfered from a Gold Coast shop that were linked to the owner’s phone. According to police, four men allegedly broke into a shed on the property while it was under construction and took the cameras, solar panels, and other items before leaving to consume drugs at another location. But what they didn't realize at the time was that their presence had set off an alert on the phone of its owner, a 37-year-old Mackay man. The property owner watched the break-in and robbery live as it was broadcast from surveillance devices mounted at the construction site. Police used the footage to nab a 29-year-old Gaven man and have charged him with several offenses including stealing and entering a premise. Police are yet to apprehend his three accomplices although they have footage of two of the assailants. (https://goo.gl/S4g1fH)

California Highway Patrol officers hear a lot of excuses when they pull people over, but this might be a new one. A driver was recently pulled over on Interstate 980 for going 99 miles per hour in a 65 mile per hour zone The driver is reported to have said “I wasn’t driving that fast.” So, the officer showed him the speedometer reading of 99 miles per hour. Rather than admit defeat, the man decided to grasp at somewhat creative straws one more time, taking inspiration from the warm, 80-degree day. CHP says the man actually said, “The display must be the current temperature.” The officer said nothing for a beat, and let the silence do its work. Oakland CHP wrote, “After an awkward silence for a few seconds he signed his citation.”

Police in Memphis say a man stole his date's car and drove it to a date with another woman. A woman reported her car stolen after Kelton Griffin went to her house to take her on a date. Griffin stopped at a gas station and asked the woman to get him some cigars. A police report says while she was gone, he drove off in her Volvo. Later in the same Saturday evening, another woman, who actually knew the victim, contacted the victim and told her that Griffin had now taken her on a date. That woman led police to a drive-in movie theater, where they found the Volvo. Griffin was in the driver's seat and police arrested him and charged him with theft of property.
