Police in California are working to track down a man who stole a chainsaw from a Fresno hardware store by shoving it into his pants. Jeff Bennett of RG Equipment told the Fresno Bee that the theft took place Wednesday at 2:45 p.m. and was captured on the store's security cameras. The footage showed a man shoving the chainsaw into his pants and covering it with his jacket before walking out of the store. The suspect then left the area in a pickup truck, which Bennett described as a late-1990s model Ram, silver, with an extended cab. As of last Thursday afternoon, the suspect was still at large and police are hoping someone will be able to identify him based on the security footage. Bennet said he believes the thief had an accomplice who was "scoping out" the store last week. Fresno police Lt. Mark Hudson said one person arrived at the station in connection to the theft to clarify that he is not the thief after saying "he was being blown up" on social media by people accusing him of being the suspect.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A Florida politician seemingly had a little too much fun in the sun at a seafood festival over the weekend. Bill Sanders, a Bradenton City Council member, was kicked out of the Desoto Seafood Festival Friday after drunkenly fighting with a volunteer. According to police, volunteers complained that Sanders was letting people into a VIP area without permission. One volunteer, Terry Wilson, allegedly confronted Sanders and told him to stop. Sanders responded, “Do you know who I am?” The councilman claimed that Wilson “hadn’t gotten over the election,” referring to an ugly 2018 campaign during which he accused Wilson of threatening his sister on Facebook. Wilson told the newspaper that he checked with the event sponsor before kicking Sanders out of the festival. Police found Sanders “was intoxicated by his flushed skin tone, profuse sweating, and strong odor of alcoholic beverages coming from his person.” ( THREE THINGS!
