Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (8-3-2013)

The lesson learned in this story is that you should always have the right tool for the job.

 Washington County Sheriff's Deputies arrested a man after he attempted to steal a handgun from a gun store......using a baseball bat as his weapon of choice.

The store manager utilized his personal handgun to detain the robber until deputies arrived.

On July 25, 2013, at 3:58 p.m., Sheriff's Deputies responded to a robbery call at Discount Gun Sales located at 8118 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Highway in Raleigh Hills Oregon.

It was reported that a man entered the gun store with a baseball bat and attempted to steal a gun.

The store manager called Sheriff's Deputies and reported the man smashed a display case and removed a handgun.

The manager said he had his gun pointed at the robber keeping him detained until the deputies arrived.

Upon arriving at the store, Sheriff's Deputies discovered that Mr. Mosley had taken a baseball bat and smashed a large glass display case containing several firearms.

Deputies learned that after Mr. Mosley broke the glass, he removed a handgun. Moments later, the manager drew his handgun and began giving Mr. Mosley orders.

Derrick Mosley complied and dropped the stolen handgun, baseball bat, and nine inch long knife he was carrying. He laid on the floor until Deputies arrived.

No one was injured in the robbery. It is not known what Mr. Mosley's intentions were once he had the handgun in his possession.

Derrick Mosley was lodged in the Washington County Jail charged with First Degree Robbery, First Degree Theft, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, and Second Degree Criminal Mischief. He is held on $250,000 bail.

You big dummy!!!



Never ever, ever hide a lot of money in your house. The only interest your money will gain at home is the interest of a burglar when he flips your mattress or looks in your cookie jar. Besides you don't have to worry about the bank losing your money. Most of the time.

A Queens woman threw out her old refrigerator, only to remember later that day that she had stored her life savings inside of it.

Magda Castillo of Kew Gardens realized late Wednesday that her Frigidaire had $5,020 in cash in one of its doors when she had it taken to a recycling center in Ozone Park. Early the next morning, Castillo returned to the center in a panic, but the employees couldn't find the fridge and Castillo left, dejected and in a financial bind.

But when Mike Downer, an employee at the recycling center, showed up for work 15 minutes later, he had a vague recollection where they had left the fridge the day before. Downer then found the fridge and the missing five grand.

The employees of Atlantic Recycling couldn't find Castillo, however, so they took to the media to locate her. Later that day, Castillo realized her money had been found.

“In the afternoon, I saw on TV they found my money. I said, ‘Oh my God, I'm very happy.’”

Downer never thought of keeping the cash for himself. "I didn't need her money. It's the right thing to do," he said. He did get a $300 reward, though. Castillo, who can now pay her mortgage this month, will no longer be keeping her money in appliances: She says she just opened a bank account. 

It is refreshing to see that there are still honest people in the world who know how to be a blessing.

I've heard of snakes on a plane, but........

Security officials at China's Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport noticed something rather peculiar in the bag of a traveler identified only as "Mr. Li" on Monday.

The airport's X-ray machine showed “suspicious corners” on what appeared to be a KFC sandwich package, according to the media.

Mr. Li vehemently insisted the item was "nothing but a burger. " When security staff pointed out that the odd shape of the burger resembled that of a turtle, Li replied, “There is no turtle in there, just a hamburger. There's nothing special to see inside."

KFC doesn't sell hamburgers, he should have gotten a Big Mac box instead.

Officials forced Mr. Li to open his bag and found that he was indeed attempting to transport his "beloved" pet turtle on the plane. The man reportedly was able to entrust the animal in a friend's care before continuing on his flight to Beijing.
