Cray Cray Crime
Every Saturday I feature what I call #CrayCrayCrime on my Facebook page– crime from around the world that stuns, amuses or leaves me scratching my head. I feature all four posts on my blog. So here is the month of October 2016, three posts for the weeks I’ve been featuring this topic.
Not Your Typical Church Service
Sadly a Florida Church has lost its tax-exempt status because the Tabernacle, as it is called, was operating what is known as a night club. Way to capitalized on Spring Break traffic in a creative and not entirely legal operation. The specific event that tipped the legal scales and earned the attention of law enforcement was called Amnesia which involved naked paint parties.
I have a strong feeling that spring break will be a treasure trove for #CrayCrayCrime
Home Made Bikini is a Clear Violation
A 59 year old New Jersey man was arrested in Beach Haven, NJ for crafting a homemade bikini from clear plastic wrap. Police did not appreciate the man’s crafty skills and charged him with lewdness. You can’t make this up. Blame it on the heat? #CrayCrayCrime
You Broke it, You Bought it
No use crying over spilled milk. But one hapless shopper from across the pond managed to knock over two huge flatscreen TVs one into the next. This turn of events so shocked the London shopper, he backed up into two other flatscreen televisions. Crash. Crash. Two becomes four and the final tab was over $6000. Best of all, the entire cataclysm was caught on surveillance camera. I’m not sure if the ex-customer was charged for the damage or if he was pardoned but you can watch the video here. No charge.
