Deer defense

NEWBURYPORT, Mass. - A Massachusetts man fighting a speeding ticket in court had a unique explanation - the officer’s radar gun may have picked up a deer.

The Newburyport Daily News reports that Dennis Sayers, of Haverhill, was clocked going 40 mph in 30 mph zone in West Newbury in November.

He got a $105 ticket.

He appealed in court on Thursday, asking Officer Royster Johnson if he was 100 percent sure his radar captured Sayers’ speed or the speed of a deer that could have been in the vicinity.

When confronted by the skeptical judge, Sayers replied that anything was possible.

The fine was upheld.

Deer, by the way, can run approximately 30 mph.

TME – Apparently, the buck stops here.

Dropping dimes

SALISBURY, Md. - Authorities say a Maryland man felt guilty about stealing a friend’s valuable coin collection, so he threw it in a pond -- but not before selling a few of the coins.

Citing court records, the Daily Times of Salisbury reports 39-year-old Joshua Jeffrey Lehman of Pittsville was cat-sitting for his friend last month when he stole the friend’s coin collection, valued at almost $7,000.

When the friend returned to her Salisbury home, she discovered it had been ransacked and the collection was missing.

Wicomico County sheriff’s deputies say Lehman admitted Wednesday he sold off a few of the coins in a Wal-Mart parking lot before then throwing the rest into a pond because he felt guilty.

Lehman has been charged with theft between $1,000 and $10,000 in value.

TME – We wonder what he wished for.

Have it your weed

EPPING, N.H. - Police say two employees at a New Hampshire Burger King have been arrested on drug charges after authorities were tipped off that drive-thru customers who asked for extra crispy fries got marijuana with their meal.

NH1 reports Epping Police Chief Mike Wallace said 20-year-old Garrett Norris was arrested Saturday after police conducted a sting operation. Also arrested was 19-year-old Meagan Dearborn, the shift manager.

Wallace said drive-thru buyers would ask for “Nasty Boy,” then for extra crispy fries.

Wallace said the drugs weren’t put in the food; they were sold in a separate container. He said the operation didn’t involve the franchise owners.

Norris and Dearborn are scheduled for arraignment Feb. 28. It wasn’t known if they had lawyers and phone numbers couldn’t be found for them.

TME – What do you get with a Whopper?

Biohazard burglary

NEW YORK - Police in New York City are asking for the public’s help in apprehending a burglar who wore a white biohazard suit to conceal his identity when he stole a safe containing $200,000 from a home in Queens earlier this month.

WNBC-TV reports surveillance video shows the burglar pull a Mercedes-Benz station wagon into the driveway of a home in the Bayside section of the borough on Jan. 6.

Police say the man exited his vehicle, entered the home through an unlocked back door and made off with the safe, which contained valuable jewelry in addition to the cash.

Investigators have not said whether the home was targeted.

TME – This is either the very beginning or the very end of a knockoff Bond movie.

Know when to walk away…

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A West Virginia man has admitted to leaving a casino to rob a bank before returning to continue gambling.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports 52-year-old Kerry Johnson of Charleston pleaded guilty Wednesday to a robbery charge.

Johnson had been at the Mardi Gras Casino in Nitro for hours Aug. 2 when he put down a $25 chip to hold his spot. Prosecutors said Johnson then drove 13 miles to a Charleston bank and gave tellers a note saying he had a bomb and a weapon and robbed it.

Johnson then returned to the blackjack table and kept gambling.

Johnson told a judge he’d taken quite a few drugs that day, but recognized himself after seeing video from the bank.

He faces five to 18 years in prison when sentenced in March.

TME - …and know when to run.

Unsafe safe

BERLIN - Police in northwestern Germany are searching for a brazen thief - or thieves - who knocked down the wall of a house with a tractor and made off with a safe.

Police say the tractor was used early Thursday morning to bash down the wall of the home in the town of Buende, west of Hannover, according to the dpa news agency.

The thief or thieves grabbed the safe and fled, and the John Deere farm tractor was left halfway inside the house.

Authorities say the home’s residents weren’t harmed in the robbery but refused to say what was being kept in the safe or to give any further information because of the ongoing investigation.

TME – They should have just used the tractor beam.
