When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on  a
Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived
at the scene to find an ill man curled up next to a motor home near
spilled sewage. A police  spokesman said that the man admitted to trying
to steal  gasoline and plugged his hose into the motor home's sewage
tank by mistake. The  owner of the  vehicle declined to press charges,
saying it was the best laugh  he'd ever had.


A woman was reporting her car as stolen, and mentioned that there  was a

45 year old Amy Brasher was arrested in San Antonio, Texas after a
mechanic reported to police that 18 packages of marijuana were packed

David Posman, 33, was arrested recently in Providence, R.I., after
allegedly knocking out an armored car driver and stealing the closest
four bags of  money.  It turned out they contained $800 in PENNIES,

Drug possession defendant Christopher Jansen, on trial in March in
Pontiac,  Michigan, said he had been searched without a warrant.  The
prosecutor said the officer didn't need a warrant because a "bulge" in
Christopher's jacket could have been a gun. Nonsense, said Christopher,
who happened to be wearing  the same jacket that day in court.  He
handed it over so the judge could see it.  The judge discovered a packet
of cocaine in the pocket and laughed so hard he required a five-minute
recess to compose himself.


Clever drug traffickers used a propane tanker truck entering El Paso
from Mexico.  They rigged it so propane gas would be released from all
of its   valves while the truck concealed 6,240 pounds of marijuana.
They were clever, but not bright.  They misspelled the name of the gas
company on the side of the truck.


Oklahoma City...
Dennis Newton was on trial for the armed robbery of a convenience store
in a  district court this week when he fired his lawyer.  Assistant
district attorney Larry Jones said Newton, 47, was doing a fair job of
defending himself until the store manager testified that Newton was the
robber.  Newton jumped up,  accused the woman of lying and then said, "I
should of  blown your [expletive] head off."  The defendant paused, then
quickly added, "if  I'd been the one that was there."  The jury took 20
minutes to convict Newton and recommended a 30 year sentence.


R.C. Gaitlin, 21, walked up to two patrol officers who were showing
their  squad car computer equipment to children in a Detroit
neighborhood.  When he asked how the system worked, the officer's asked
him for a piece of identification.  Gaitlin gave them his driver's
license, they entered it into the computer, and moments later they
arrested Gaitlin because information on the screen showed  that Gaitlin
was wanted for a two year old armed robbery in St.Louis, Missouri.
