Federal agents have arrested a California nurse on suspicion of running an illegal online pharmacy that sold more than 20,000 opioid prescription pills. The Sacramento Bee reported Sunday that Carrie Alaine Markis of Rancho Cordova was arrested last week and could face charges including distribution and conspiracy. It was not immediately known if she has an attorney. Prosecutors say the 46-year-old earned tens of thousands of dollars selling drugs via a marketplace on the darknet called Farmacy41. The newspaper said Markis is identified in court papers as holding a master’s degree in nursing science and health care leadership from the University of California, Davis. Markis reportedly appeared in court this past Monday. The US Attorney’s Office in Sacramento has led efforts nationwide to crack down on hidden websites that purport to offer untraceable sales of drugs. (

In Welsh Folklore, Corgis Transported Fairies
No wonder the Queen loves corgis. In Welsh legend, a pair of corgis were said to tow the carts and carriages of fairies and also help them ride into battle. “The diminutive dogs were perfect for herding cows,” as Mental Floss adds. “Their short stature kept them out of the way of flying hooves when they nipped at angry cows’ heels.”

A Gainesville, Florida man was arrested Monday after police said he robbed a restaurant. 56-year-old Steven Michael Berlin was charged with armed robbery. However, he did not have a weapon. According to a Gainesville Police Department arrest report, Berlin entered “Szechuan Palace” and sat down for about 30 minutes. Police said Berlin then approached the restaurant’s counter and told an employee, “I am ready,” walked around the counter and demanded she open the drawer. The employee told police that during the robbery, Berlin had his hand in a position that resembled a gun — his thumb pointed up and his index and second finger pointed straight out. He took money out of the drawer and left. Berlin was later arrested and found with $577. Police said Berlin admitted to robbing the restaurant. He was charged with armed robbery due to the employee believing he had a gun and based on his actions. (

A man wearing a gray sweatshirt and a wig walked up to the cash register at a Florida 7-Eleven as if he was going to make a purchase. But the Lee County, Florida Sheriff’s Office said that instead he pulled out a gun and demanded cash. Deputies say the wig helped them nab the robber. They responded after reports of “just-occurred” robbery and were able to get a detailed suspect description of the suspect. The man was described as being in his 20s and wearing a gray hooded sweater and a wig. Deputies searched the surrounding area with the help of a helicopter and canine units. After “receiving additional witness information” deputies responded to a nearby apartment complex where they found Rodriguez. The Sheriff’s Office said, “Deputies noted Rodriguez was sweating profusely. Deputies cleared the residence noting in plain view, a gray hooded sweater, several wigs and a large amount of wadded up cash in an open dresser drawer.” Rodriguez was arrested and charged with robbery with a firearm.
