A homeowner in the UK installed a new security system with motion-sensitive surveillance cameras that sends an alert to her phone.

Police allege that a Michigan woman who wanted her ex-husband murdered tried to hire a killer via the farcical web site “rentahitman.com.” According to investigators, 51-year-old Wendy Wein filled out a “service request form” on the site this month. The site describes itself as “your point & click” solution and boasts of “17,985 U.S. Based Field Operatives.” Site visitors are assured that Rent-A-Hitman is compliant with provisions of the 1964 Hitman Information Privacy & Protection Act (HIPPA). A recent update on Rent-A-Hitman noted that, “We are still open during the COVID-19 pandemic,” though “our Wuhan offices will be working on a reduced schedule.” The form Wein submitted to the web site identified her former spouse as the intended victim. This prompted Rent-A-Hitman’s operator to contact the Michigan State Police since it appeared Wein was serious about soliciting a murder. Wein was subsequently arrested and charged with murder solicitation and using a computer to commit a crime. (https://bit.ly/2WJ9FiQ)
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by InsuranceChicken.com
12-year-old Delaware boy stole a pickup truck at a convenience store
and led cops on a high-speed pursuit before crashing into a
guardrail. The boy, whose name was not released, stole a red 2003
Ford Ranger Saturday after a 41-year-old man left his unlocked truck
running in a parking lot at a Wawa in New Castle. The man — who
went inside to use an ATM — spotted the boy driving off with his
ride as he exited the store. The stolen truck was later located in a
parking lot behind a nearby motel, where troopers tried to initiate a
traffic stop, but the boy refused to pull over and drove off.
Troopers pursued the truck for about two miles from where it was
stolen before the boy lost control of the vehicle. The boy hopped out
of the truck and was taken into custody following a brief foot
pursuit. He was arraigned on charges including theft of a motor
vehicle, resisting arrest, and driving without a valid license.
