Trenton, NJ — The dog pictured is a Maltese/Yorkie mix puppy. As is well known, Maltese/Yorkies were originally bred by the warriors of Sparta for their utter depravity and blood lust. Particularly vicious when young, the puppies were used later as guard dogs in the concentration camps of Nazi Germany and Bosnia-Herzegovina. It is said that they can smell both blood and fear.
Knowing this animal to be the satan-incarnate that it is makes more understandable the allegations that Tiraya Green’s teenage neighbor beat her Maltese/Yorkie mix puppy to death.
According to Green, 9-month old “Thunda,” a Maltese/Yorkie mix like that shown, got away from her on his leash and ran toward a teenage neighbor boy while walking home a couple weekends ago.
“He ran away and up to the neighbor,” said Green. “I yelled before the dog got to the neighbor, but the puppy was just playing.”
It was at that point, according to Green, that the teenager summoned the courage of greek gods to beat the Maltese/Yorkie devil-spawn to death with a shovel.…Continue Reading
St. Paul, MN — The jury that convicted Luke Brandon Scott, 29, on two counts of assault, making terroristic threats and false imprisonment decided Tuesday that there were aggravating factors involved in the crimes.
The charges for which Scott was found guilty resulted from his mistreatment of Caitlin Hodges the night of Sept. 26 and early Sept. 27. He was charged with two counts of kidnapping but was found not guilty of those charges.
Luke Brandon Scott, 29, offered no visible reaction as the convictions were read.
During closing arguments, prosecuting attorney Janice Barker said Hodges told Scott she no longer wanted to be intimate with him. Scott got angry and refused to let her leave his house, Barker said.
Hodges testified at trial that Scott smashed her teeth with a wine bottle, beat her, pointed a pellet gun at her head, threatened her with a knife and locked her in a dog kennel. Barker also described how Scott made her mop up spilled beer with her hair, dragged her by the hair, wrapped his arm around her throat, kicked her, hit her with a riding crop, and threw his own dog against a refrigerator.…Continue Reading
New Castle, PA — Police have accused a 12-year-old boy of trading marijuana for candy outside his school. According to police, classmates became aware of the transactions last Tuesday and alerted a teacher at the George Washington Intermediate School. The teacher then alerted administrators.
Police reports say the young entrepreneur told his principal he took the marijuana from his stepfather’s freezer. The stepfather has been identified as Michael Quinn Jr.
The boy reportedly elaborated saying that he has, on several occassions, exchanged drugs with a 20-year-old man for candy and other items. “He said he would trade the drugs for candy, and he did this several times…” said New Castle Police Chief Tom Sansone. When those exchanges happened and the identity of the 20-year-old man has not yet been reported.
When the New Castle Narcotics Bureau and the Lawrence County Drug Task Force searched the stepfather’s apartment, they found six bags of marijuana in a freezer and a digital scale.
Quinn faces drug charges of possession with the intent to deliver and possession of a controlled substance.…Continue Reading
Fort Mill, SC — Surveillance video of two men dressed in women’s clothing who stole from a truck stop last week has been released by South Carolina police. Love’s Truck Stop in Fort Mill was the scene of this cunning crime.
An employee told police that one of the men distracted him by making a purchase using a credit card that wouldn’t process. While distracted, a second man was reportedly spiriting away vehicle electronics. Police said that before this daring ruse was over, the second man would walk out of the truck stop with a GPS unit and a combination television/DVD player.
Police are asking the public’s help in their apprehension.
While the employee blamed the distraction on credit card processing, it is understandable if he was unable to resist the mesmorizing beauty and fetching glances from these enchantresses. The employee provided detailed descriptions of the two men to police.
The first man was wearing a delightful teal and white dress – the white top being almost diaphanous in texture and the dress portion flowing in a nod to the spring weather of the Carolinas.…Continue Reading
Longmont, CO — Jesse Paul Hodgson, 37, a Colorado firefighter, pleaded guilty this week to one count of felonious attempted sexual assault and misdemeanor counts of unlawful sexual contact and indecent exposure. These charges are related to his arrest for exposing himself to a teenage girl.
Prior to his dismissal, Hodgson was the spokesman for Mountain View Fire Protection District which is based in the Longmont, Colorado area.
The release states police began investigating Hodgson based on a report filed in September 2010 by an adult female relative. That relative alleged that Hodgson attacked her in his home on Memorial Day 2010 when she was “extremely intoxicated.” The woman alleged previous instances of Hodgson requesting she watch him “pee in his diaper,” groping of her breasts and genitals and his requesting she watch him masturbate. According to her statement to police, she requested that he stop his behavior but her requests were ignored. The report filed alleged that, after the Memorial Day party at his home, Hodgson drove the woman and her children home and subsequently sexually assaulted her in her kitchen.…Continue Reading

“There are times when defendants make our jobs very easy, and this was one of those times,” said Capt. Tim Stump, Dover Police spokesman.

Pittsburgh, PA — Pittsburgh police arrested Lamarr Stephen Marshall, 32, after he shot a 16-year-old girl, identified in a criminal complaint as Lakeisha Lane, because she would not give him her last cigarette.
Lt. Dan Herrmann said Marshall approached the girl at a residence and asked for a cigarette. Lakeisha told police that when she told Marshall no, he pulled out a gun and shot her once in the leg. He then fled.
The girl’s injuries are not considered life-threatening. Police said she is in stable condition at a local hospital.
Marshall was arrested after the shooting and charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and illegal possession of a weapon because of his being a convicted felon. He is currently being held in the Allegheny County Jail.
Sioux City, IA — Joseph David Sauce, 41, was arrested Friday by the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office. He was charged with willful injury, a class C felony; false imprisonment, a serious misdemeanor; and third-degree harassment, a simple misdemeanor. That is a fancy way of saying that he kicked the living shit out of his boss.
According to the criminal complaint, Sauce’s boss, Doug Inlay, had planned to fire Sauce from Agency One, an insurance agency at which they both worked. The dismissal was reportedly because Sauce came to work late, smelling of alcohol, and made unflattering comments about Inlay’s wife – all generally regarded as poor employee behavior.
According to the complaint, though, two days before the planned dismissal, Sauce came to the agency, told the secretary to leave, and commenced a beating of biblical proportions.
Sauce allegedly began it all by striking Inlay in the back of the head while Inlay sat at his desk. The complaint says that when Inlay fell to the floor, Sauce kicked him repeatedly in the face and told him, “You guys think you can get rid of me.”
The assault moved from office to office with Sauce allegedly dragging Inlay by the tie for some of it.…Continue Reading

An employee at the facility told police after Condelario walked inside wearing only underwear and asked if he was supposed to be there, he began yelling and swearing at employees. He then left and tried to board a school bus in the parking lot.
When responding officers approached, he reportedly asked if they “were there to end him.” In his apparent continuing bid to increase his street cred, Condelario also asked if they were “going to shoot or stab him,” the arrest affidavit said.

The victim, an employee of Liberty Tax Service, is one of the costumed legion of Lady Liberties often seen on street corners waving enthusiastically to passers-by. Tempe police said that last Thursday, the woman reported that Theriault “waved back,” in a manner of speaking.
According to police, the victim was working on a regularly assigned street corner when Theriault struck. When filing the police report, she said that the same man had masturbated in front of her a total of three different times in past weeks. She had not reported these occurrances.
Police reportedly analyzed past cases and actually determined in advance that Theriault might be their perpetrator. Now, there’s a legacy for you.

According to Derfler, when he saw him out his front window, “He started pulling his pants down and started defecating,” Derfler said. “At that point I grabbed my camera and started to take pictures.” The series of photos that resulted show the dirty deed.

BENBROOK, Texas –Two baseball players at Western Hills High School are being charged with cruelty to livestock animals after being accused of killing baby chickens as part of a superstitious sacrifice.
According to reports, a baby chick was found decapitated in March behind the school’s baseball fields. Another chicken was also found decapitated the following day. Police said superstition about a slump in baseball performance could have played a part.
Western Hills High School baseball coach Bobby McIntire said that “baseball is very superstitious” and that the players possibly got the idea from sports movies. In the movies “Bull Durham” and “Major League,” chicken sacrifices are used to help break players out of slumps.
Benbrook police Sgt. John Van Ness says that the charges are a felony punishable by 180 days to two years in jail and can include a fine up to $10,000. Police say the two students are cooperating in the investigation.

Barnes’ relative arrived at their Oklahoma City home in March to total darkness. ”There were things done to the house like covering light switches with duct tape so she wouldn’t be able to turn on the light,” OKC MSgt. Gary Knight said.
Barnes was found in an outfit she planned to wear to the Lady Gaga concert; a long rain coat and streaks of what turned out to be cat blood on her face, according to the court affidavit.
Barnes’ relative “became very afraid that the suspect was going to try to do harm to her,” MSgt. Knight said. The police officer reported Barnes asked her step-aunt for help and was taken to a hospital. There, she “pulled a jagged piece of glass from her purse and said she was going to hurt the male intake nurse,” the officer reported.
