Four men charged with breaking into an upmarket Darwin restaurant to steal alcohol amid a COVID-19 lockdown will also be slapped with thousands of dollars in fines for not wearing face masks. Northern Territory police were alerted at 1:20am Tuesday that a liquor store had been broken into and four men had fled the scene on foot after allegedly stealing the drinks. Officers arrested the group a short time later. Detectives reviewed CCTV and found the men had breached the NT's Emergency Declaration, which mandates mask-wearing. 'I've confirmed those individuals were not wearing masks and they will be receiving the $5000 fines as part of the charges,' Police Commissioner Jamie Chalker said. 'That's over $20,000 for those four people who've broken into a business that is already being impacted by the lockdown.' Police charged the men - aged 31, 33, 44 and 58 - with contravening an emergency declaration, unlawful entry and stealing. (


A year after a judge granted Carole Baskin control of Joe Exotic’s one-time zoo, she’s finally sold it. Baskin and husband Howard sold the property — the former The Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park — for $140,000. There is, however, a key stipulation. The new owners are prohibited from using the property “to house exotic animals of any kind — or as a zoo, wildlife park or menagerie.” In addition, Howard Baskin said the new owners are also barred from “ever being associated with he who shall not be named,” referring to Exotic. Last summer, a judge granted Carole ownership of the land in order to satisfy the $1-million judgement against Exotic in their trademark lawsuit.

The trailer for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” broke the record for the most views in 24 hours after it was released online, a record previously held by the biggest box office hit of all-time, “Avengers: Endgame.” The new Spidey trailer racked up 355 million views in 24 hours, about 65 million more than “Endgame” did prior to that movie’s release in 2019. This comes after the trailer for “No Way Home” was initially leaked online over the weekend, spurring immediate online buzz and speculation that continued through the week. Sony plans to release the third film in the current Spider-Man series on Dec. 17.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

A cafe in Edinburgh, Scotland where J.K. Rowling wrote some of the Harry Potter books has been damaged in a fire. The Elephant House sustained smoke and water damage after a blaze broke out next door on Tuesday. The Elephant House is a regular stop for Harry Potter fans and it proudly displays a sign declaring itself the “birthplace” of the fictional young wizard. Rowling has disputed that, saying she began writing the magical stories before she moved to the city, but she confirmed she frequented the cafe while penning some of the 7-book series.

Wytheville man faces arson and other charges for allegedly starting a fire in a store where his credit card was declined. About 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, Wytheville Police were called to a Sheetz Convenience Store. They were told a customer had just had his card declined, left the store and returned with a gas can, the contents of which he poured on the floor and set afire. He then drove off as the store manager put out the fire. Wytheville Police, the Wythe County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia State Police began searching for the man. The car in which he drove off was found at an apartment complex. Shortly after, a Wythe County Sheriff’s deputy saw the male subject under a tractor trailer near a Lowes store.
