Pro-tip: When you are meeting your probation officer, do not meet the officer in a stolen electric shopping cart


An Albuquerque man was being held in the Bernalillo County Jail Tuesday after police said he drove a stolen electric shopping cart to meet with this probation officer.

Martcart_XtiCourt Documents say Michael Johnson, 18, arrived to meet with his probation officer on Monday at the Metropolitan Courthouse on an electric shopping cart from Walmart.

The probation officer asked Johnson where he got the cart, to which Johnson said he “took it from the Walmart on San Mateo and Zuni,” the documents say.

Johnson was arrested and charged with larceny and receiving stolen property. He violated his probation when he was arrested and is being held on a $500 bond.

Albuquerque police made the arrest and said Tuesday that the cart could have been put to better use.

“The cart was worth over $1,800, and certainly it could have been used by those who needed it more than this man,” APD spokesman Tanner Tixier said.

Man Set New Wife On Fire For Sleeping With Ex-Lover On Wedding Night


Ivan Kuzmin has been accused of setting his new bride on fire because she had sex with an ex-lover on their wedding night after he fell asleep.

Veronika-FilippovaAccording to reports, Veronika Filippova, 27, had an affair with an ex-boyfriend after Kuzmin passed out drunk at their wedding reception. She was so consumed with guilt that she later told Kuzmin everything.

This turned out to be a big mistake, because Kuzmin, 30, responded by dousing her with alcohol while she was sleeping. When she woke up and tried to escape, Kuzmin set her on fire with a cigarette lighter.

Filippova was rushed to the hospital with burns to over 80 percent of her body but would die a few hours later. Kuzmin was arrested and has admitted to murdering Filippova. He’s now facing 15 years in prison.

Too bad Kuzmin never admitted to Filippova that he’d once served ten years in prison for the attempted rape and murder an underage girl. Had he, none of this may have ever happened.

Sergey Domnyshev, an investigator in the Kirov district of Volgograd, confirmed Kuzmin was convicted of trying to rape a girl under the age of 18, then trying to destroy evidence by setting the apartment on fire with the girl still inside.

Woman Beat Man, 64, Over Gas Passing


A South Carolina woman last night pummeled a 64-year-old man after he “passed gas” in her face, according to police who cited both for fighting.

jessicacerneyAccording to a police report, Jessica Cerney, 33, was laying on the couch in a Myrtle Beach residence when Darrell McKnight“came into the house intoxicated and ‘passed gas’ in her face.”

Cerney, seen at right, told police that she left the home to get away from McKnight, but said that he followed her outside. As the two argued over the incident, Cerney said, the cursing McKnight approached her in a “threatening manner.”

Cerney said that when McKnight bent down, she “struck him in the face approximately three times with a closed fist.” The blows left McKnight with a swollen right eye, for which he subsequently received treatment at a local hospital. Cerney, who was not drunk, did not suffer any injuries during the confrontation.

A witness identified as “Ricky” told officers that Cerney and McKnight had been fighting over the gas passing and McKnight’s intoxicated state.

Cerney and McKnight were both issued citations for fighting.

The scariest mugshot you’ll see today



A McDowell County man was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with allegedly stabbing a friend after a verbal argument turned physical and resulted in the victim receiving multiple stab wounds.


53f0b509b7d4a.imageRick J. Jones, 33, of the Frog Level Section of Coalwood, was arrested on charges of malicious wounding, domestic assault, domestic battery and brandishing related to an incident that took place late Friday night, also in Coalwood. Jones appeared for his arraignment on Saturday before McDowell County Magistrate Steve Cox who set his bond at $25,000 cash and property. Jones was being held Saturday evening at the McDowell County holding facility. 

Troopers R.W. Justus and C.A. Dunn, both of the Welch Detachment of the West Virginia State Police, received a call from McDowell County 911 at 10:59 p.m. Friday night concerning a malicious wounding incident in the Coalwood area.

Justus and Dunn responded to the call where they encountered the victim, Kevin Ross, who had suffered multiple lacerations and knife wounds in his lower torso, his left side, his back and the lower part of his right arm. According to Justus’ report of the incident, the victim “had blood covering most of his body.”

The victim and his wife told the troopers that the suspect, Jones, had left the residence before police arrived. According to Justus, the victim and his wife stated that Jones lived with his father, Rick L. Jones, who has a residence in the Frog Level Section of Coalwood. The troopers traveled to the Frog Level residence where Rick L. Jones told the troopers that his son had left the residence about 5 minutes before they arrived, and added that his son was armed with a .40 caliber handgun.

Justus and Dunn were joined by Detective Ron Blevins and Deputy R. Jones, both of the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office and the four officers searched the Coalwood area for Jones. The responding officers eventually returned to the Rick L. Jones residence where they found the suspect and arrested him early Saturday morning.

The McDowell County EMS Authority transported Ross to Welch Community Hospital where he received initial treatment. Ross was later transported by ground to Charleston Area Medical Center.

Justus said that he had heard several possible motives, but did not speculate as to what may have prompted the alleged stabbing. He said that the incident remains under investigation.


Woman Allegedly Poisoned Roommates After She Was Caught Having Sex With Dog


A 53-year-old woman has been arrested after police said she tried to poison her roommate and boyfriend, upset that the boyfriend had broken up with her because she’d been having sex with her roommate’s two German shepherds.

Shari-WaltersSheriff’s deputies said Shari Walters’ roommate walked into a shed in Albuquerque in late July at their shared home and found Walters having sex with one of the animals, according to a criminal complaint filed Thursday in Metropolitan Court. The roommate, who police said was “shocked,” walked back into the home and waited for Walters to return.

Walters returned to the home and admitted having sex with the dog, Spike. The roommate then told Walters’ boyfriend, who broke up with her “because she was having sex with dogs,” the officer wrote in the criminal complaint.

The three were having dinner later that evening, and both the roommate and Walters’ ex-boyfriend said they noticed that the water they were drinking was strangely colored and that the food they were eating tasted different.

Both alleged victims reported some minor symptoms after eating the food, which Walters later told them was laced with toilet bowl cleaner and rubbing alcohol. Walters told her boyfriend she had been having sex with dogs since she was 14 years old, according to the complaint.

Walters was sent to the University of New Mexico Hospital for a mental evaluation, and she’s now being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center on $20,000 cash bail. She’s facing charges of animal cruelty and assault with the intent to commit a violent felony.

A veterinarian examined both animals and found minor injuries, as well as “unusual symptoms” in one of the dogs that could indicate sexual abuse, according to the criminal complaint.

The roommate and ex-boyfriend require additional medical treatment as a result of having ingested the chemicals, according to the complaint.

Man who worked in morgue admits to having sex with up to 100 corpses


A man who worked in a morgue admitted to having sex with female corpses while at work, federal officials said.

WPTV_Kenneth_Douglas_1408201559401_7401261_ver1.0_640_480Kenneth Douglas, of Hamilton Co. , Ohio,  admitted in court that he sexually abused three corpses while he was drunk or on drugs, but he had sex with up to 100 bodies, he said in a deposition.

“I would just get on top of them and pull my pants down,” said Douglas, who worked the night shift at the morgue from 1976 to 1992.

A jury might conclude the former coroner and morgue director failed “recklessly and wantonly” to supervise Douglas, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday in allowing the suit to continue.

The panel cited evidence that Douglas’ supervisors were aware he was drinking and also having sex with live women while on the job,WCPO reported .

Douglas’ wife testified in a deposition that he reeked of sex when she picked him up from work. She said she called the coroner’s office and reported him, but the morgue supervisor told her to stop calling.
The families of the three victims sued the county in 2012.

Douglas, now 60, was convicted of gross abuse of a corpse in the cases of Karen Range, Charlene Appling and April Hicks in 1991 and 1992.

Douglas also admitted to having sex with bodies being stored while awaiting autopsies.

Douglas’ crimes didn’t come to light until 2008 when DNA connected him to semen found in Range.
Range’s killer, David Steffen, had admitted slaying her but denied raping her.

In 2008, Douglas pleaded guilty in the Range case and was sentenced to three years in prison.

In 2012, he pleaded guilty again in the Appling and Hicks cases.

Their families sued that year.

It was the fourth time the county was sued for failing to protect bodies in the morgue.

“I can’t explain this at all,”  Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said at the time.

Dr. Frank Cleveland was the coroner when Douglas sexually abused those three corpses. Cleveland died in 2011.

“If I hadn’t had anything to drink when I went to work, it wouldn’t happen,” said Douglas. “I would do crack and go in and drink and go in.”

Douglas’ wife said she called the morgue supervisor about her husband smelling like sex and alcohol after work.

“He said, ‘Whatever happens on county time and on county property is county business,'” said Douglas’ wife.

The county ignored the warning signs, according to Al Gerhardstein, one of the families’ attorneys.

“The county had plenty of notice that Douglas was coming to work and was present at work while he was under the influence of alcohol and drugs,” Gerhardstein said. “Had he been stopped, these women would not have been abused.”

The county argued it should not be held liable because the cases involved unknown criminal acts of an employee.

The appeals panel opinion upholds earlier rulings by a lower court, including rejecting federal constitutional violation claims by relatives of the women whose corpses were abused.

Many cultures have their own Rites of Passage into adulthood. This is Wisconsin’s


A 13-year-old Manitowoc girl allegedly took her mother’s vehicle without permission Wednesday evening and drove five other juveniles around — all while she was intoxicated, according to police.

According to a news release from the Manitowoc Police Department:

Officer Jason Erickson observed a vehicle driving without headlights in the 2000 block of Marshall Street at about 11:45 p.m. He initiated a traffic stop and the vehicle pulled over in the 1000 block of S. 22nd Street.

Erickson, a drug recognition expert, saw that the driver appeared to be impaired. The girl failed the standard field sobriety tests, was placed under arrest for operating while impaired and eventually released to her mother.

Five other juveniles from Manitowoc and Two Rivers, all 14 or younger, also were in the vehicle. One of the juveniles had been reported as a runaway by his mother to the department earlier in the evening and he was returned to her. Another juvenile in the vehicle had an active apprehension request from the Department of Human Services and was eventually released to a relative. A third juvenile had an active temporary physical custody order on him from Sheboygan County. He was eventually transported to the Sheboygan Juvenile Detention Center.

Police are recommending a charge against the driver of operating while impaired with passengers less than 16 years of age in the vehicle.

When you’re pulling a safe full of drugs stolen from a pharmacy behind your car with a rope, it’s best not to pass the police car


An Onslow County man is accused of breaking into a pharmacy, stealing a safe, and dragging it behind his car.  He was arrested after passing a police officer.

The Swansboro Police Department said the alarms of Family Care Pharmacy, located at 1106 Main St., were activated at about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.

IMullins-Ryan-James--web--jpgnvestigators said 22-year-old Ryan Mullins, of Swansboro, smashed in a window at the pharmacy’s drive-through to enter the building. Mullins then tied a nylon rope around a 100-pound safe containing prescription drugs and drove about two miles with the safe dragging behind his vehicle, Swansboro Police said.

By 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, a Swansboro police officer pulled out in front of Mullins and saw in his rear view mirror that there was something swinging behind Mullins’ vehicle, investigators said. The police officer pulled over to let Mullins pass, then saw the safe being dragged. The officer immediately pulled Mullins over.

Mullins is charged with felony breaking and entering, larceny, possession of stolen goods, two felony counts of trafficking opium or heroin, one count of safe cracking and misdemeanor DWI.

Mullins is being held at the Onslow County Jail on a $240,000 bond. He is scheduled to make his first court appearance Wednesday morning.

When making a getaway from your daring heist, do not stop to urinate on a wasp nest


Wasp-NestA thief was caught after he accidentally disturbed wasp nest while urinating during his getaway, a court heard.

Jamie Brown, 29, was caught by cops who saw him crying in pain.

Brown spent six hours in agony at Leeds General Infirmary, before being discharged and appearing before magistrates today.

Leeds Magistrates Court heard Brown had attempted to make off with the £200 fish tank but as cops swarmed the area Brown relieved himself in a bush home to a nest of wasps and fled from the crime scene – catching their attention.

Brown pleaded guilty to a charge of theft which the court heard breached a suspended sentence for a previous theft and a ban from entering the homeware store.

Lorraine Harris, prosecuting, said: “The alarm was triggered and police were called, parking their car near to the store.

“Police saw the defendant running towards them. He was sweating heavily and rubbing his head.

“He said he was running home and had been attacked by wasps. A witness said she saw him wearing gloves, which they later found with the fish tank.

“He had gone into the bushes to relieve himself.

“Due to the number of wasps in the nest he was taken to hospital. The glove marks were found and a foot print recovered.

“When asked why he was in the area he said he was visiting his aunt.”

The court heard Brown has a number of previous convictions for theft.

Mom From TLC Reality Show Nobody Remembers Jailed For Raping Boy, 13


cum-pigAndrea Clevenger, the 34-year-old mother with a penchant for young boy ejaculate in her mouth, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping a 13-year-old boy.

We reported on Clevenger earlier this year after her sexual relationship with the boy was discovered by the kid’s mom. The boy went on to describe the great time he had with Clevenger, including coming in her mouth after sex, and morning car blows.

Text messages and pictures sent between the two seemed to confirm what the kid was saying, and police would issue two felony warrants for rape and engaging children in sexually explicit conduct for use in a visual or print medium.

Last Thursday, Clevenger pleaded guilty to sexual assault and engaging in sexually explicit conduct with a minor. In return, she was sentenced to 10 years behind bars and will have to register as a sex offender.

Clevenger and her daughter were featured in two seasons of TLC’s “Cheer Perfection,” a forgettable reality show about a team of cheerleaders at Cheer Time Revolution in Sherwood. TLC never renewed the program, nor do they air repeats.
