Danielle Sexton (Age 27) reportedly swiped a multicolored leopard print dress with a black waistband from Morties, a store in her native West Frankfort, Illinois. After the owner’s son, Kert Williams, posted a note about the theft and a description of the woman on his Facebook page, people quickly began pointing him toward Sexton’s selfie, which she had just set as her new profile pic. Williams passed the information along to the police, who arrested her.

WTF: Free Coffee with Every Robbery
A Tennessee man didn’t get the cash he was after when he walked into a Huntsville, Alabama, Starbucks with the intention of robbing it, but he didn’t leave empty-handed either.
Police say that Sunday’s bizarre robbery attempt went down at 7:30 AM when Phillip Sawdey walked into the Starbucks.
Sawdey demanded money from the barista behind the counter. His plan to grab the cash and run were screwed up when the barista informed him that she was unable to open the cash register (other reports say that she refused to open the register) & instead offered him “a cup of coffee” instead.
Sawdey took his quick defeat well & took her up on the offer, accepting the beverage before leaving the store. He was caught by police in the parking lot & arrested for robbery without incident and booked into the Madison County Jail.
Coffee isn’t the only item some robbers have accepted in lieu of cash. One man allegedly accepted weed instead of money during a robbery attempt in 2011, according to the Corpus Christi Caller Times. And a worker at a Whataburger in Tulsa, Oklahoma, thwarted a machete-wielding robber by offering him fries, according to a 2010 report from the Tulsa World.
I have just ONE question, is Starbucks’ coffee that good (and expensive)?
I hope that was the best damn coffee he’s EVER had in his life, that’s all I’m saying.
WTF: A Whole New Meaning to “Stealing Verses”
It was 50 Cent who once said, “If my record don’t sell, I’mma rob and steal.”
These crooks robbed before their record even released.
Maryland cops are searching for a pair of wannabe rappers who robbed a recording studio just minutes after they finished laying down a track there, according to NBC Washington. At about 1 a.m. on Thursday, the unidentified thieves recorded a song called “Larry Hoover”, apparently dedicated to famous Chicago gangster King Larry, at Copy Catz in Laurel.
After they finished, they left for a few minutes — but came back with guns. They demanded that everyone sit down and started taking valuables.
They made off with an undisclosed amount of items and cash from the studio, and Copy Catz didn’t return calls for comment by press time. Investigators’ only piece of evidence is the song itself.
“What we’re looking for is the voice recognition,” Laurel police spokesman Pete Piringer told the station. “Maybe someone will recognize their voices or know this tune or know who these fellas are.”
It’s important to note that the video clip below not only has a taste of the song, but a clip by NBC Washington’s Pat Collins, who, as DCist points out, is just plain awesome:
“If you have the time, please do watch the report filed by Pat Collins. It’s, well, classic Collins, and even includes a snippet of the song. It’s not very good. In fact, you could say its criminally bad.”

WTF: Feeling The Pressure At Work
SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 62-year-old employee was cooked to death at a Southern California seafood plant for tuna maker Bumble Bee Foods, after working there for 6 years.
The Whittier Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/TmJFyv ) Jose Melena was found shortly before 7 a.m. Thursday at the plant in Santa Fe Springs.
Los Angeles county coroner’s office had a hard time identifying the body, due to intense body damage caused by being trapped in a pressure cooker.
Erika Monterroza is a spokeswoman for the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health. She says it’s unclear how the man ended up inside a cooking device called a “steamer machine.”
(How big is the steamer?)
The state agency has launched an investigation. Bumble Bee Foods spokesman Pat Menke expressed condolences to Melena’s family in a written statement. Menke says operations at the canning facility will be suspended.
And I thought I was under pressure at work. Jose ended up being put under so much pressure it literally killed him. Well done, Bumble Bee Tuna. The occupational health & safety standards at your plants might leave a lot to be desired.
R.I.P. Jose Melena.
