Louisiana police are hunting for a woman who this month allegedly stole nearly $800 worth of vodka and toilet paper from a Walmart outside Baton Rouge. Cops say 30-year-old Jana Snowden loaded up a shopping cart with twenty-one bottles of Tito’s vodka and then covered the booze with four cases of toilet paper. Snowden, a Baton Rouge resident, then wheeled her cart out of the store without paying for the merchandise. Two Walmart employees confronted Snowden as she sought to boost the vodka and toilet paper, but she ignored them and made her getaway in a vehicle parked outside the store. Police estimated the vodka and toilet paper haul’s value at $784.05. When collared, Snowden will face a misdemeanor theft charge that carries a maximum of six months in jail. (

The Biggest Bat Colony Is in Texas. If you’re creeped out by bats, stay away from Bracken Cave, Texas. This location, about 20 miles outside of downtown San Antonio, is where the largest bat colony—consisting of more than 15 million Mexican free-tailed bats that pack onto cave walls, with as many as 500 per square foot when they are pups—in the world can be found.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
A 27-year-old unemployed cook named Cody Cummins was beaming when he posed for a mug shot following his arrest for allegedly hitting his mother in the head with a corn cob last Saturday evening. According to cops, Cummins “intentionally and unlawfully” threw a corn cob that struck the 56-year-old woman in the head. Police reported that “The Victim was hurt but did not have any physical injuries.” The incident--characterized as a domestic battery by cops--occurred in the Tampa, Florida-area home where Cummins and his mother reside. Cummins, who fled the residence after allegedly flinging the corn cob, was arrested around 3:30 a.m. Sunday. He is being held in the county jail in lieu of $150 bond. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A Florida man has been arrested after deputies say he fled a traffic stop and then called 9-1-1 to brag about it. First Coast News reports 19-year-old Nicholas Jones has been charged with reckless driving, fleeing and eluding, misusing 9-1-1 and violation of probation. According to an arrest report, a deputy was trying to pull over a Hyundai for a traffic stop when the car took off, speeding out of a parking lot. Roughly an hour later, Jones reportedly called 9-1-1 to gloat about his getaway. Deputies were able to track Jones down, and when asked why he ran from a traffic stop, he reportedly smiled but didn't initially respond. Asked why he would call 9-1-1 to gloat about it, Jones said, “That cop had no right to stop me. I saw him turn his lights and sirens on and was going to stop but I didn't want to.” He eventually also said he thought fleeing the police would be “fun.” Deputies told Jones that the officer that attempted to pull him over did not have his plate number and they were only able to arrest him because they tracked his 9-1-1 call.
