Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 18th October 2012, 1:04 pm

This is Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day, where I
shall try to post a strange but true crime daily. I am instigating this on The
Soda Shop, Campbell County, and The Town of Odyssey. Because there are some
people I know on all these things which are on only one, and I wouldn’t want to
deprive them. I have been planning on this for a while, so hopefully I won’t
run out of material.Unfortunately I may miss a day now and then and all, but
hopefully I will then post two the next day. I hope you CCer's enjoy these.



#I “I don’t.”
Mauro Pirelli of Vicenza, Italy, was a jittery bridegroom. Two hours before his
wedding he had his hair cut. While seated in the barber’s chair, he anxiously considered
his future as a husband. As his doubts worsened, inspiration struck. He
borrowed a car, speed to nearby Thiene, and climbed into a second-story window.
He clumped and clattered to make sure the homeowner heard him. Then he left a
trail even a blind detective couldn’t miss. The police arrived in the nick of
time — as Pirelli was going into the church to be married. “I attempted a
robbery just to get arrested and avoid the wedding,” Pirelli confessed at his
trial. A panel of judges found him guilty of attempted robbery but withheld a
prison sentence.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #II

#II He’s alive and kicking, isn’t he?
The law finally caught up with Cristina Echvarria, a lady of many addresses. Among her offenses:
practicing medicine without a license, and billing Medicaid for treating a
220-pound football player for diaper rash.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #III

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 20th October 2012, 1:14 pm

#III It’s the reel thing. A thief in Canton, China, suffered from catching a cola.
Yup, a cola, not a cold.
Guards at the Chrysanthemum Guest House nabbed him as he sipped a soda he had just reeled in.
Police identified him as the celebrated “fishing burglar.” He specialized in pulling valuables through hotel windows with a fishing rod.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #IV

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 21st October 2012, 4:07 pm

#IV The layered look.
Two Senegalese crooks learned clothes don’t always make the man. Sometimes they make the prisoner.
The pair broke into a clothing shop in Paris and waddled out with lots of stylish
threads. The cops quickly spotted them. The two men were dressed in a total of
fourteen leather vests, three jackets, one coat, and six pairs of trousers.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #V

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 22nd October 2012, 12:45 pm

#V Trial by file.
For two years Astred Greene flew the world free, saving herself an estimated
$40,000 in air fares. She masqueraded as a flight attendant.


Greene got aboard overseas flights by walking past the gate
agent, who took her for a member of the crew. One mistake did her in. She was
too good at the job. Passengers wrote letters to the airline praising her
helpfulness.


An office worker decided to start putting the
letters in Greene’s personnel file. Whoops, no file.

#VI Unforgettable 1. “All I can remember
about him is, he was stark naked,” said Anne Barkley of Tampa, Florida, when
asked to describe the man who stole her purse.

#VI ½ Unforgettable 2. “Well, he had big
eyes,” said Ellie Ford of Charleston, South Caralina, when asked to descried the
Peeping Tom she saws at her window.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day VII

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 24th October 2012, 4:28 pm

#VII Join the dinar’s club. In 1987, five
tourists from West Germany were arrested for lighting their cigarettes with
100-dinar bills in the Koral Hotel in Umag, Yugoslavia.


One of the five
tourists took pictures of the lighting for laughs. A hotel employee became so
angered that he called the police. The film was held for evidence.


A judge fined the
tourists the equivalent of $30 each and denied them “Yugoslav hospitality” (that
is, the freedom to visit the country) for three years.

A 100-dinar note was worth about 15
cents.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #VIII

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 25th October 2012, 12:03 pm

#VIII Cash and carry.
Two women selected $419 worth of clothes in a department store in Heath, Ohio.
They paid with a fake $1,000 bill.


The bill bore the phrases “A. Phony-bill” and U.
Cantcashit.”


The store couldnotcashit. It was too large a bill. So a
clerk took one of the women to a neighboring store.


No one there noticed anything unusual either,
and the women walked off with their new clothes and $581 in real money.

#IX All wet. Boyd
Cross of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, came home from work to eat lunch and found a
burglar in his bedroom.


Cross grabbed a gun, which he kept for protection. In the
struggle with the burglar, the gun went off, wounding Cross’s waterbed and
flooding the house.


The burglar sprinted away with nothing except
wet feet.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #X Omagatron

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 27th October 2012, 1:19 pm

#X Omagatron Thanks,
we needed that.
Fifteen Democratic committeemen were gathered in Denver to
assign subjects for the state platform in the November election.


“Who’s going to take crime?” asked the chairman of the
resolutions committee. No one answered.


He repeated the question twice, but got no takers.


Finally he said, “Someone has to take crime.”


At that, three men charged into the room, took
everyone’s money, and charged out.

Omagatron = This was scheduled for much later but I moved it to here because I thought perhaps people would find it funnier at election time.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #XI

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 28th October 2012, 12:33 pm

#XI Look away, look
away.
As part of a class project, three high school students got the okay
from the manager of a Chicago department store to shoplift goods in full view
of his customers.


The students made out like bandits.


“They must have taken at least four hundred dollars worth of
merchandise,” said their teacher.


During the three hours the students played their roles,
there were more than 100 customers in the store. At least half saw the “shoplifting.”
The students got one dirty look. The rest of the customers either looked away
or walked away.


“I’m totally amazed,” their teacher said. “I
thought maybe fifteen percent would report them. The indifference underscores
what we’re seeing more and more — a society that doesn’t want to get involved.”

Bridge anyone? “Good thing the road
is tied down,” said a police spokesman after someone stole a 20-foot timber
bridge that spanned a canal near Bunnell, Florida.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #XIII

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 25th January 2013, 1:43 pm

#XIII Hold ‘em, roll.
Mrs. Tillie Tangleber’s restaurant in New York City served hard rolls. Hard as in haarrrd.


Early on a winter night Alexander Godwin, a barber, sat down at a table by the window facing the street. He ordered a cup of coffee and one of those hard rolls.


He had buttered the roll and was raising it to his mouth when things went crazy. A stranger stepped close to the window, whipped out a gun, and fired.


Godwin didn’t have time to duck, and didn’t have to. He had the roll.


The bullet splintered the window and struck the roll, which snuffed its force to a driblet. Deadened instead of deadly, the bullet dropped into Godwin’s mouth, wounding him barely enough to draw blood.


The stranger apparently mistook Godwin for someone else and was never seen again.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #XIV

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 26th January 2013, 10:47 pm

#XIV All are not hunters who blow the horn. A Crime Stoppers TV program in Florida reenacted unsolved crimes with the hope that viewers who had information would tell the police.


Realism was the watchword. In one of the shows, a detective played the role of the robber of a milk store. A female rookie played his partner in crime.


Two weeks later a woman walked into police headquarters and surrendered. “You’ve got me red-handed,” she said. She thought the reenactment of the holdup was a film taken while the actual crime was being committed.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #XV

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 27th January 2013, 5:19 pm

#XV Kiss and wow!
Umberto Rizzo was a World War II airman when he kissed his sweetheart on a street corner in Messina, Sicily.


A policeman with no sense of romance reported his conduct.


Rizzo married the young woman, but it didn’t help. He received a suspended three-month sentence for “indecency in a public place.”


Forty years later the Italian Treasury Ministry decided that the sentence eliminated Rizzo, now 69, from a veteran’s pension.


Moreover, the Ministry demanded back the $8,500 already paid him.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #XVI

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 28th January 2013, 5:24 pm

#XVI Hidden assets.
In 1937, Joseph Mancini, a New York City druggist, saved $6,700 because he
always wore long underwear, winter and summer.


Mancini had just sold his house for$68,000, and was carrying
the $6,700 cash deposit. As he and his attorney entered a cab, two men shoved
in behind them.


The attorney managed to jump as the cab slowed for a corner.
The thieves jumped too, with Mancini’s pants.


Mancini told police that he had hidden the $6,700
in the leg of his underwear. The thieves got only the $15 in his pants.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #XVII

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 29th January 2013, 2:05 pm

#XVII Know a woman by the companies she keeps. Dumbest Victims of the Year award for 1912 went to the Hoboken, New Jersey, merchants who paid a smartly dressed woman for the goods she stole from them.


Maisie B. Copeland was a wholesale shoplifter. After a few days, she would return the merchandise and coolly demand a refund in cash.


The merchants made good though they were somewhat puzzled. She had no sales slips, and they had no record of the sales.


Copeland swindled thousands of dollars before store owners began swapping notes on a lady customer they could never satisfy.


She was taken to the Central Police Station, where, like a lady of quality, she promptly swooned to the floor.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #XVIII

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 30th January 2013, 3:41 pm

#XVIII Sad but true.
In 1930, the villagers of Zude, Poland, were convicted of stealing a forest.


The women did not appear in court, but the village’s 68 men
did. They said they had cut down the nearby municipal forest to use as fuel.
Otherwise, they would have frozen during the winter.


The judge fined them and sentenced them to brief terms in jail.
He warned them not to steal any more trees.


“Your honor,” one villager replied. “That is
impossible. I myself took home the last tree within miles and burned it.”

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #XIX

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 31st January 2013, 6:25 pm

#XIX Time on his paws. A watch salesman in a shop in Shanxi, China, was being watched by the police.


He had become the prime suspect when watches began disappearing left and right.


Just before the police pounced, another salesman moved the watch counter.


Underneath was the real thief — a rat dwelling in a hole shinning with 27 watches.

Arkán’s Wacky Crime of the Day #XX

Post by Arkán Dreamwalker on 1st February 2013, 4:19 pm

#XX It wooden work.
Nevin Curtis had stopped for a red light in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, when two thugs jerked open his car door. One of them seized him by the leg and tried to drag him out.


Curtis stomped on the gas and whizzed off. The shocked pair were left in a blast of exhaust — holding Curtis’s artificial leg.


Although the leg cost Curtis $1,625, its resale value was small. It was made to his measure.
