HOW well do you know your area? Can you find your own way home?

When Jian Tsui left the pub in Xinqiao village in Wenzhou at Zhejiang province in eastern China, he headed back to his domicile. He was on foot. What happened next, we’ll let him tell you:

“It was very early in the morning and it was also a cold so I decided just to take a shortcut. But I got stuck and realised I was going nowhere – so I tried to go back but then I realised that I couldn’t go back either. I tried calling for help but I couldn’t even breathe in properly so that I could shout.”

teacher blood copy

tattoo thief

So says Capt. Mike Dixon of the Madison County Sheriff’s Department of Adam G. Roberts, 24, of Godfrey, Illinois. Roberts has been charged with burglary. Police warn that if you bought items from him – such as a compact refrigerator, paintings, an antique chest of drawers, an oval mirror and a sewing machine – they might well be stolen.

Denver police seek the dirty Thong Bandit

TO Sloan’s Lake, Denver, Colorado, where police are seeking a man wearing a thong. Oddly, police have nicknamed him the Thong Bandit, although he appears to be sporting his own knickers.
District 1 Commander Paul Pazen tells us:

“We’re looking for an individual who we have titled the ‘Thong Bandit’.  He is fully clothed somewhere in the mouth of an alley, will disrobe down to a thong and expose himself further in front of female citizens in northwest Denver. It’s a crime to expose yourself to folks. We need to make sure that he doesn’t take that next step.”
