Monday round-up

A crazy week ahead, three days in the office to finish getting ready for another trial, this case. And Thanksgiving at the end of the week, but I'll be posting every day, fear not.

So what happened over the weekend, out of our jurisdiction?

First, police in California need your help. If this gun-toting robber is your grandpa, please let them know.

Remember last week's round-up, with the guy who was claiming disability while winning gold tournaments? No, not him again, but maybe a friend. She claimed insurance payments for depression, until her insurance company spotted Facebook piccies of her at strip clubs and grinning on the beach.

The note used to demand money from a bank teller is great evidence. Was great evidence. The suspect munched it when he was caught, and the munching was caught on camera.

A cold-blooded smuggler. I wonder if the giveaway was a sudden rush of cockney accents coming out of his shirt offering cheap car insurance?

  1. Hmm, i guess it's great everyone's such an expert on depression that they can make a medical diagnosis via facebook pictures. Clearly since she wasn't always in bed she was faking depression. There's probably more to this story, but the way people make snide comments based on the available elements in the news are, sadly, quite revealing.
