“I was so freaked out,” commented one teller, “until I realized it was a robber. I about shit my pants when I thought it was actually Jim Carrey and he was going to do some routine. I mean, who’s got the energy for that guy?”
Disgraced ‘sheriff of the year’ who traded meth for sex gets 15 months in prison
“The tables have turned on…Once nationally lauded for his anti-drug crusades, the former sheriff admitted to a drug problem and was sentenced to 15 months in prison for repeated probation violations in a meth-for-sex case, the Denver Post reported.
“The 71-year-old, a one-time national sheriff of the year, missed 36 urine tests and tested positive for methamphetamine or alcohol 10 times in more than two years of probation, his probation officer told reporters…”
My curiosity is piqued concerning the well-known sex-for-drugs link: do methheads (or crackheads or junkies) get into it in the sack? Or do they just kind of phone it in?
Priestly robes, books stolen from church, 3 arrested
By CBS News; June 19, 2014
“GARDNER, Mass. – What would three young men want with priestly robes, books and other items from a church in central Massachusetts? Police in the town of Gardner aren’t saying, exactly – but they and the clergy of St. Joseph Catholic Church are just glad they got everything back, according to CBS Boston.
“Rev. Thomas Tokarz, of St. Joseph Catholic Church, said that on Friday the 13th, someone broke through a back window and then into a downstairs office. He said what was stolen was not locked up – religious books, candle holders, and ornate robes used for mass.
“‘They probably could have taken the chalices, but they didn’t. They took the vestments, which means nothing to them. The only one who can wear them are priests’,” Tokarz told the station.
“The specific items have no value on the open market.
“Officers reportedly found all the items when they responded to a call about a man running through an abandoned building wearing priestly robes…”
I’d really like to meet these three guys who wanted to play religion. Were they trying to start a breakaway sect? Wanted to add a sacred element to drinking wine in an abandominium? Or were they just careless assholes?
