Evan Dorsey: Find crystal meth, rob a dealer and help a stranger: The bizarre criminal checklist that police found on Boston burglar | Mail Online
Boston police found a criminal ‘to-do’ list on a 25-year-old man whom they arrested for burglary that included ‘goals’ such as finding crystal meth and coke, getting a gold watch, robbing a drug dealer, selling drugs, and doing one altruistic act for a stranger.
Evan Dorsey, of Weymouth, Mass., was arrested on Friday after allegedly breaking into a home on Manoment Road and stealing insulin from a UPS package.
Police were alerted to Dorsey’s activities by neighbors, who called authorities to report that Dorsey had been going door-to-door saying that he was conducting a survey about opening a marijuana dispensary.
At the time of his arrest, Dorsey was carrying about two dozen pieces of jewelry that police presume were stolen, several tools used to pry open doors and a baton-like weapon known as a black jack.
A Brooklyn man who was accused of having cocaine and marijuana in a car stopped by State Police on the New York State Thruway in Clarkstown in 2012 has been found guilty of drug possession charges.
Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe said a Rockland County jury deliberated for 10 days and convicted Genghis Khan, 23, of 1008 St. Marks Ave., Brookly, of second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony, and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.
At the Resort Plaza Walmart, people can save a dollar. And, apparently, waste a buck as well.
By shooting it with a handgun, that is.
Which is why Arcangelo Bianco Jr., 40, finds himself in trouble with the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
According to the commission, Bianco fired several rounds at a hapless white-tailed deer from within the Burrell Township store’s parking lot and bagged the animal on the other side of Old William Penn Highway (Old Route 22) one afternoon last November.
The most serious of the charges he faces is a misdemeanor count of reckless endangerment. He also was slapped with five summary offenses, all hunting law violations, including hunting without a license, shooting on or across highways and unlawful killing or taking of big game.
“Obviously, we can’t have someone running through a Walmart parking lot shooting at a deer,” said Jack Lucas, the wildlife conservation officer who investigated the incident.
But the one thing Bianco does not stand accused of is hunting out of season — the incident reportedly took place on Nov. 26, the first day of antlered deer season with regular firearms.
It was way back in 1984 when Lawrence Konyves was convicted for his first DUI. But the Yardley man, who was 16 at the time, was just getting started, receiving a dozen more DUI charges since then. Amazingly, Konyves managed to avoid any significant jail time. That was until Monday, when he was sentenced to 5 to 10 years in state prison for his 13th DUI.
Yet while Konyves is finally getting justice, an important question remains. How did he avoid state prison time for that long? Prosecutors say he did it by manipulating the system.
“If he was sentenced to jail time, as he was as the law mandates, he would manage to talk people into a house arrest situation which he served from home,” said Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler. “Or a situation where he was in a halfway house.”
The internet around the world has been slowed down in what security experts are describing as the biggest cyber-attack of its kind in history.
A row between a spam-fighting group and hosting firm has sparked retaliation attacks affecting the wider internet.
It is having an impact on popular services like Netflix – and experts worry it could escalate to affect banking and email systems.
Five national cyber-police-forces are investigating the attacks.
Spamhaus, a group based in both London and Geneva, is a non-profit organisation which aims to help email providers filter out spam and other unwanted content.
To do this, the group maintains a number of blocklists – a database of servers known to be being used for malicious purposes.
Recently, Spamhaus blocked servers maintained by Cyberbunker, a Dutch web host which states it will host anything with the exception of child pornography or terrorism-related material.
OKLAHOMA CITY – Two men are behind bars following an unusual home break invasion in Oklahoma City.
It happened over the weekend at a home near I-240 and May Ave.
One of the accused thieves tried to hide from police in the attic.
It started when the victim came home to find her house being ransacked.
“When I get here, I saw stuff all over the floor,” victim Shirley Cloud said.
Shirley said one of the suspects, Taylor Lane, hit her from behind and fled out the back door while a second suspect climbed up the stairs into her attic.
Officers showed up and, at first, didn’t find the suspect hiding. Thieves through ceiling
“They didn’t get up and walk a whole lot, they tried to rake,” Cloud said. ”You know, they just didn’t see anybody.”
“They did a search of the residence and were unable to find the suspects in the residence,” Oklahoma City police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.
A short time later, hearing strange noises from the attic, Shirley once again called police.
That’s when officers found Nicholas Werner hiding out upstairs.
The daughter of a powerful New York real estate mogul has been arrested along with her boyfriend after the pair were found with 30 baggies of heroin during a police sting, authorities say.
Katheryn Kalikow, 27, and Brian Whalen, 28, had allegedly advertised the drugs on Craiglist as a ‘high quality diesel pain relief.’ They were taken into custody in the Bronx, New York, Sunday night after they agreed to sell the drugs to undercover detectives for $440, according to court documents.
Kalikow’s father is Peter S Kalikow, a real estate baron with a fortune of up to $1billion. He is the former head of the Metropolitan Transit Authority, once ran the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and is a former owner of the New York Post.
The public’s view of a typical Mexican drug smuggler might not include U.S. Naval Academy grad Todd Britton-Harr, who was caught at a Border Patrol checkpoint in south Texas in December 2010 hauling a trailer with 1,100 pounds of marijuana.
Snowstorm: Man Crashes Into Woman’s Car, He Apologizes, She Shoots Him, St. Louis Police Say – St. Louis – News – Daily RFT
Taking hatred of the snowstorm to a whole new level?
We’ll admit that one of the worst parts about snow in March is the agony of driving through this weather, and we can only imagine how horrible it would be to get in a collision. But gun violence is not the answer!
St. Louis police say that a 44-year-old woman was exiting I-70 eastbound at the Martin Luther King Bridge exit when an unknown man drove into her lane and collided with her. He apparently apologized. And then she started shooting.
Police list the location of the assault as North Third Street and the MLK Bridge and at this time say that the victim is an unknown white male.
The collision happened just before midnight last night, and after the man collided with the woman, she reportedly followed the vehicle and “blocked the victim’s vehicle with her vehicle.”
