According to a Police Chief named Ron Tischer, a car thief was caught after she ran out of luck— or battery, precisely. Kathy Sain was pursued by cops after she stole an electric Tesla from a shopping center parking lot in Payson, Arizona. The thief evaded spike strips but the stolen car came to a halt after it ran out of power. There is a Tesla charging station in the shopping center, but it is unclear if the vehicle was being charged when it was stolen by Sain. “Spike strips were ineffective but the vehicle ran out of electricity on East Highway 260,” Tischer was quoted as saying. “The suspect refused to exit the car and troopers and deputies were forced to break a window to get the suspect out.” Sain was arrested on several charges including theft, fleeing pursuing law enforcement vehicles, criminal damage, and aggravated driving under the influence.

Named Mount Thor, it has a 4,000-foot rock face that has proved daunting for climbers, with 30 attempts made before a four-man team from America finally succeeded in 1985 (it only took them 33 days).

Texas cops are hunting a woman dubbed “The Wedding Crasher” after she allegedly stole thousands of dollars in gifts from at least a half-dozen newlywed couples. According to the Comal County Sheriff’s Office, the avowed thief executes the stunt by dressing as a wedding guest and sneaking into the reception where she snatches up envelopes full of cash, checks, and gift cards. Authorities first became aware of the matrimonial mugger when she hit up nuptials in Spring Branch last November. Since then, she’s struck at least five more times, mostly at the same venue. Investigators said they’ve obtained surveillance footage from several shops showing the sacrilegious swiper using the allegedly stolen gift cards. Cops are still working to count up the losses, but they estimate the total is in the thousands of dollars.(

According to a Pennsylvania court filing, a suspect who used a stolen debit card to purchase a cell phone, beer, and cigarettes signed the sales receipts as “Thief.” Police report that the male suspect swiped the card from a woman who gave him a ride home from a bar last week. The debit card was inside a purse in the center console of the woman’s vehicle. The victim, Joei Thompson, noticed the purse was missing the following day and filed a report with police in Butler, a Pittsburgh suburb. But Thompson’s debit card had already been used to purchase a $200 iPhone 6S at a MetroPCS store and a case of beer and pack of cigarettes from Butler Beer and Tobacco. When cops examined the sales receipts for the two transactions, they discovered that the purchaser signed his name as “Thief.” Police eventually charged 36-year-old Ewari Ellis with stealing the victim’s debit card.
