WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
According to a robbery complaint, a Tennessee man forcibly removed $10 from his own grandmother’s undergarments after she refused his demand for cash. 19-year-old Memphis resident Jared Otte entered the 63-year-old victim’s home in late-August and “demanded she give him cash.” Otte’s grandmother told police that when she declined to hand over any money, Otte pushed her onto on the bed and “held her down, raised her dress, and removed $10 from her undergarments.” The woman reportedly “suffered bruising on her arms and leg during this incident.” The complaint does not indicate why Otte needed the cash. Otte was arrested last Tuesday on a felony robbery charge and booked into the Shelby County jail. He was released from custody after posting $10,000 bond. He is next due in court on October 15th. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

According to an arrest report, an Oklahoma woman was busted for allegedly stealing an entire building and trying to hawk it online. 36-year-old Vicki Treaster is accused of swiping a metal garage near Oklahoma City then posting an ad on Facebook Marketplace trying to offload it for $1,500. The owner of the structure told cops he was browsing the Craigslist-style local ad space, when he spotted a photo of his own building for sale. The ad featured two people disassembling the garage, which he said was actually worth $6,000. When questioned by cops, Treaster allegedly first lied about where she got the structure, and later claimed a friend gave it to her. But the “friend” — who turned out to be the victim’s brother — said he didn’t give her permission to take it. Treaster was charged with one count of grand larceny and one count of unlawfully using a computer network to make money. The report didn’t note when the structure was stolen, nor how big it was. (
