Woman Accidentally Confesses Crime.

By QMI Agency

CALGARY — It had all the makings of a perfect crime.

The culprits hid their valuables, from jewelry to electronics, smashed windows and even made faux bad-guy footprints before calling police.

Unfortunately, for those who hoped to foil authorities, Const. Charanjit Meharu was among those to arrive at the alleged break-and-enter scene.

When the purported victim, who was hysterical and saying she had lost everything and had a list of what was missing for cops, took a call from her father in Quebec telling him what happened in French, the carefully crafted ploy unraveled.

“She was telling him she and her boyfriend made up the story to make an insurance claim,” Meharu says.

“By the end, I had about 10 pages of notes and I said, ‘Merci beaucoup.’

“She didn’t expect a brown guy to speak French.”

That woman was charged with mischief.

French is just one of seven languages the 37-year-old constable speaks — along with English, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Arabic and Gujarati.

​A 90-year-old grandmother suspected of selling cannabis was arrested Friday after police raided her home and found more than 170 pounds of marijuana.

A squad of armed South African police officers with drug dogs stormed the elderly woman’s home and discovered the pot stashed in multiple bags, according to the Daily Mail.

“This lady was quiet, old and looked like an angel sent from God,” said the rather poetically inclined Police Inspector Kobeli Mokheseng.

“But we received a tip-off two weeks ago that a lot of people were going into her house and coming out looking happy,” Mokheseng said.

Wow, happy people? That will not do! Obviously, law enforcement was called for, don’t you think?

“We sent in a drugs team who were prepared for a shootout, but they soon realized there was nobody to fight,” Mokheseng said.

Police found three types of marijuana, locally known as dagga, stashed in the pensioner’s garden shed.

The elderly lady, who said she lived alone in the four-room home east of Johnannesburg, South Africa, was arrested and taken into custody.

“She will spend the weekend behind bars, educating the police officers on what she was doing,” Inspector Mokheseng said.

“This was quite an extensive operation going on, with three types of the drug — called Swazi, Local and Skans,” Mokheseng said.

Wow, three separate strains? Granny’s got it goin’ on.

“We found money in plastic bags ready for the bank,” Mokheseng said. “She was making quite a lot of cash.”

“We understand she has many children and grandchildren, and we are trying to contact them,” the police inspector said.

The woman is scheduld to appear before Alberton Magistrates’ Court on Monday. She is charged with possession of illegal substances and selling cannabis.

The former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor was arrested early Thursday morning and will be charged with third-degree rape involving a 15-year-old girl at a hotel in Montebello, N.Y., according to police.

The Journal News reported that the girl was a runaway from the Bronx who was taken to the Holiday Inn in Montebello by a pimp, according to Ramapo supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence. She was treated at a hospital.

“She was a runaway since March and there was a pimp involved,” Mr. St. Lawrence told the Journal News. “She got punched in the face. We’re not sure who did it.”

The police have scheduled a news conference for 3 p.m. to discuss the case, and have said Mr. Taylor will be arraigned on third-degree rape charges this afternoon because the victim is a minor.

Mr. Taylor, 51, lists his residence as Pembroke Pines, Fla., but he also owns a home in northern New Jersey. Montebello, a village in Rockland County about 25 miles north of New York City, is close to the New York-New Jersey state line; the hotel is located just off the New York Thruway.

Mr. Taylor, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999 and is considered one of the best defensive players of all time, had a 13-year career with the Giants that was marred by problems with drug and alcohol. He was suspended several times by the N.F.L. and was arrested multiple times for drug possession. In the past few years, Mr. Taylor has re-emerged as a public personality, including working in front of the camera on N.F.L. broadcasts, and has said his drug problems are in his past.

Last November, he was charged in Dade County, Fla., with leaving the scene of an accident. He was released on $500 bond; the case is still pending.

Officials from the Giants and the N.F.L. said they would have no immediate comment on the arrest Thursday.

Charged: Man accused of dunking 4-year-old (more…)

Man Urinates on $700 worth of Walmart Steaks.

This is one crazy story!
OK. WOIO Reports Say: An unusual – and disgusting – incident at a Canton Walmart. Robert Jenkins is accused of peeing on steaks at the Walmart on Atlantic Boulevard NE early one Friday morning.

The news clip below is obviously about a man Robert T. Jenkins -allegedly- urinating on $700.00 worth of steak @ a local Cleveland Walmart in Canton, Ohio. The funny part is, the way anchor-woman ( DENISE DUFALA ) of 19 Action News led into the report.
She says, “… this one really has all of us shaking our heads.” LMAO! I figure there was much pun intended. The mood in the newsroom must have been hilarious!
