Police have reported that a corn dog thief is on the loose in South Carolina. A Myrtle Beach woman told cops that she returned to her home yesterday afternoon and found a male intruder “just inside her door eating a corndog.” The 30-year-old victim said that she recognized the man as someone she had met last year, but whose name she did not recall. When confronted by the homeowner, the suspect “said he was hungry and stopped by to get something to eat.” The suspect peddled away from the crime scene on a bicycle owned by the woman, who told cops that her phone was also missing. In a bid to identify the intruder, an officer processed a State Fair Corn Dogs box for fingerprints. However, the corn dog container, which was found on the floor, provided “no viable prints.” (

MOMENT OF DUH:By Constant Contact  REV UP YOUR email marketing!
Police in Utah said they apprehended a dummy used by pranksters to scare drivers who thought the mannequin was a body. The Lone Peak Police Department said in a Facebook post that a group of juvenile suspects dressed the dummy, dubbed “Fred” by police, in clothes and placed it in an Alpine road. Police said the suspects hid nearby to watch the reactions of drivers. “It may have been funny to them, but wasn't funny to female driver who happened across Fred,” the Facebook post said. “Officers arrived and took Fred into custody. He's now being used to prank fellow co-workers at the PD.” Police are inviting the dummy's owners to claim him at police headquarters and “have a chat” with officers. (
