An alleged shoplifter in California took her time enjoying the fruits of her crime. Police in Lathrop say Elysia Johnson placed several items into a shopping cart and hand basket at a Target store Saturday afternoon. She also grabbed a six-pack of Stella Artois beer and headed for the dressing room. She reportedly stayed in the dressing room for more than an hour, drinking the six beers, then leaving the store without paying for anything. Police said she had over $200 worth of stolen items in her possession when she was stopped. Johnson was held by Target's loss prevention officers and she was later taken to the San Joaquin County Jail, where she was charged for shoplifting and on three other warrants. The Sacramento Bee reported those warrants were for petty theft, battery and resisting, and obstructing or delaying a peace officer. (

Solo Synchronized Swimming Was Once an Olympic Sport
If you thought tug of war was weird, the Los Angeles Games of 1984 saw the introduction of solo synchronized swimming. Sounds like an oxymoron, but it worked something like a ballet in the water—the “synchronized” part refers to the swimmer staying in sync with the music, not other swimmers. American took home top prize that year, with Tracie Ruiz nabbing the gold. The sport was discontinued by the IOC in 1992.

A Fort Lauderdale man called 9-1-1 after going to the bathroom and finding a bright green iguana swimming in his toilet. The man called the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission first but was told it doesn’t respond to that type of call. So that’s when he called 9-1-1. Fort Lauderdale Battalion Chief Stephan Gollan tells CBS4 News partner The Miami Herald the man “freaked out and didn’t know what to do.” He says firefighter Jeff Kurus put on a sterile glove, reached in, and grabbed the iguana. He took it outside and released it into the wild. Gollan says the department “is the end-all-be-all” when it comes to unique calls. The department tweeted pictures of the iguana, adding “can you imagine lifting the toilet lid and finding this?” (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

According to the Seminole County Sheriff's Office in Florida, a Spiderman mask hastily purchased at a thrift store wasn't enough to keep one Florida man from being identified during a burglary at a liquor store. Deputies said they recently nabbed Edward “Fast Eddie” Wilburn after he stole bottles and cigarettes from a liquor store in unincorporated Casselberry. Surveillance video from the store shows Wilburn with his face covered in a Spiderman mask, grabbing multiple bottles and putting them into a box before running away. According to Deputy Bruce Milne, the mask might have worked if Wilburn hadn't originally approached the store without the disguise. Surveillance video from before the break-in showed the first attempt. Milne said, "To me, it was just a matter of absolute surprise that he would walk up to the door first, try to break in, then it starts clicking in his head that, 'Oh I might get recognized if I do this without a mask on.’” (
