Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (3-12-2016)

Somebody, anybody, somebody please snatch her license!!!!!!

Unbelievable dashcam footage shows an Illinois woman driving down the street with a 15-foot tree lodged in her car's front grille.

Roselle police officers pulled over Maryann Christy at 11:10 p.m. on Jan. 23 after receiving reports of her unusual hood accessory from other horrified drivers.

The 54-year-old woman from the nearby suburb of Schaumburg claimed she'd driven a few miles and "didn't remember where" she'd hit the tree, the Chicago Tribune reported. The airbags on Christy's 2004 Lincoln were also deployed.

Officers said the suspect smelled of alcohol and failed a sobriety test. Christy was arrested for driving under the influence and is scheduled to appear in court in April.

A former security worker for Brink's Company has been accused of stealing $196,000 while on the job.......all in quarters.

Stephen Dennis was charged on Monday with one count of bank theft by the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Dennis, 49, was working as a money processing manager for Brink’s at its Birmingham branch in early 2014, when the robberies took place, according to a Justice Department press release. 

His job gave him access to the Federal Reserve Coin Inventory. The coins he is accused of stealing were stored in ballistic bags, each containing $50,000 and place on skids inside Brink’s Coin Room.

Dennis' last day on the job was Feb. 20, 2014. An April 2014 audit of the Federal Reserve Coin Inventory discovered four ballistic bags containing a large amount of beads and just $1,000 in quarters, placed so they were visible  the neck of each bag.

A subsequent investigation revealed that on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014, Dennis came to Brink's on his day off and collected four empty skids and four empty ballistic bags, which he filled with beads. The skids and the bead-filled bags were placed back inside the coin room.

The money that Brink's was holding belonged to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and the company refunded the missing coins to the bank.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said Dennis has agreed to plead guilty to the charge and to repay his former employers.

Dennis also faces up to 10 years in prison and an additional $250,000 fine.

The arrest was a victory for people who enjoy it when government officials include puns in their official statements.

U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance said the defendant "may have thought he had quite a haul when he took nearly $200,000 in quarters from the Federal Reserve’s coin storage at Brink’s, but now he carries a heavier load."

FBI Special Agent in Charge Roger C. Stanton also showed he knows how to coin a phrase...........

“What Mr. Dennis may have thought was a nickel and dime theft was, in the end, the equivalent of a major bank heist,” Stanton said. “Now, he will be a convicted felon who must repay all the stolen money.”

It's a shame when superheroes use their powers for evil.

Authorities in Texas are seeking a suspect who concealed his true identity by wearing a Captain America costume during a recent beauty store burglary, police said in a statement on Facebook.

Security footage shows the suspect and his accomplice taking merchandise from the ULTA Salon in Plano. Police said several additional burglary incidents at ULTA Salons could be related.

There is no word as to why nobody sent up the bat signal!

Investigators described the suspects as follows:

Suspect #1 – Unknown male, black hooded sweatshirt with yellow lettering, black pants, and black gloves.

Suspect #2 – Unknown male, Captain America hooded sweatshirt, camo cap, and red gloves.

The wanted men fled in what police believe was a silver 4-door SUV, possibly Dodge Durango.
