Police caught a man with his pockets stuffed full with allegedly stolen money, just 50 minutes after he was released from custody last Wednesday. 20-year-old Karsten Hardeman from Dayton, Ohio, was found sitting by the Wentzville, Missouri, police station with multiple $100 bills, shortly after a nearby credit union reported a robbery. Hardeman had been released from the police station lock-up less than an hour before he was found with the cash, after his arrest and detention for an alleged misdemeanor drug offense. Hardeman is thought to have taken part in a string of suspicious events Wednesday. He allegedly became involved in a ruckus at a towing company after his vehicle was hauled away due to an arrest. Police held Hardeman for drugs found during the disturbance. A large amount of money discovered during the course of events led police to investigate Hardeman further. Officers secured a warrant to search his vehicle, which they found to contain two masks, a cell phone, and a computer. (

The Pensacola News Journal reported that a neighbor heard yelling at Bryan Stewart’s house around midnight Sunday and approached the house to tell him to be quiet. Another neighbor, the victim, had also heard noise and was at the house when Stewart came out of the house with his arm raised, holding the machete. The victim raised his arm and stepped in front of the blade, suffering a half-inch abrasion to his left hand.
