Detectives have charged a 32-year-old man for a series of robberies at one 7-Eleven store in Fairfax County. The store has been hit four times -- July 15th, August 22nd, August 29th, and September 6th. In each robbery, the suspect entered the store, assaulted an employee, and stole merchandise and cash from the register. On September 9th, detectives received information from a source that the suspect was involved in a trespassing incident and identified as Ronald Hill Jr., of no fixed address. Detectives reviewed surveillance footage, confirmed that he was the suspect in the robberies, and obtained warrants for four counts of robbery. Police said Hill was arrested Saturday by the City of Falls Church Police Department following a robbery that occurred in their jurisdiction and served with the four robbery warrants. Hill is being held in the Arlington County Adult Detention Center. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Turns out all it took was a ridiculous internet trend paired with vandalism to teach kids about problem-solving, teamwork, and creativity. Students are stealing or breaking large pieces of school property as part of the latest harmful TikTok challenge to sweep the nation’s youth — and it’s driving their principals crazy. The destructive stunt — dubbed both the “bathroom challenge” and the “devious lick challenge” as slang for the stealthy actions — has seen kids steal water fountains, hand sanitizer and soap dispensers, fire alarms, bathroom stall doors, hot air dryers, and many other major utilities, seemingly just for the thrill of it. It appears most of the thefts are often happening in school bathrooms, as many viral videos show. Nationwide, some are taking the exploits to ruinous extremes, with the principal of Kansas’ Olathe North High School having to tell parents that several of the restrooms there were shut down because of stolen toilet seats and ripped-off stall doors. The vandalism trend forced a similar problem at Gulf Coast High School, causing the Naples, Florida, facility to shutter most of its bathrooms as well. However, not all kids are on board with the deviousness. The trend reportedly began in early September when user @jugg4elias posted a since-deleted video of himself taking an apparently purloined box of disposable masks out of his backpack, captioning it, “A month into school absolutely devious lick,” according to Newsweek.(

GOOD NEWS: Brought to you by

While the pandemic supercharged streaming, a few people decided to swim against the current and go back to the familiar format of VHS. It isn't the easiest of hobbies. VCR players haven’t been in production within the last five years, and using the player on a current smart TV requires an expensive customized setup of several devices. A small community of VHS fanatics has sprung up around the country, trading tapes and tips on how to watch. Much of it is organized around small boxes where people can drop off or pick up tapes. The "Free Blockbuster"” boxes started in Los Angeles and spread. There are VHS tape trading events and auctions. In the late 1990s, Hollywood studios began selling films on DVDs and VHS rentals lost their grip on home viewings. Blu-ray took over in the early 2000s. By 2010 Blockbuster filed for bankruptcy protection. Brian Morrison started Free Blockbuster in 2019. The group turns former newspaper boxes into free little libraries of movies. VHS die-hards hope the effort encourages the exchange of home entertainment with strangers in their neighborhood. The 69 Free Blockbuster boxes, now located across the U.S. and in Canada and Australia, are maintained by a network of fans. The last VCR maker stopped production in 2016. eBay lists hundreds of used models, as well as refurbished box TVs with embedded players. Specialty electronics retailers still carry VCR/Blu-ray combo players.
