A controversy has erupted at a Colorado luxury apartment building over a rule prohibiting tenants from flying the American flag.

Myles Hoenisch, a disabled veteran, served in the Army for nearly seven years, including a tour in Iraq and now is risking eviction for defying that rule.

“I joined the Army because I wanted to give back to my country,” he told Fox 31 Denver.

Hoenisch has been flying the American flag from his balcony since the middle of June; however, his lease agreement at the Avana Eastlake Apartments in Thornton says he’s not allowed to do so.

Avana Eastlake Apartments didn’t return Fox News’ emails for comment, but provided FOX31 with the following statement: “We are proud to support our country and the Veterans who have served.  Our lease agreement, which all residents sign, prohibits any type of flag displayed from balconies.  We often remind residents of this policy and whether it is a college football flag or an American flag, we are required to treat all residents equally.”

“The country itself, and the pride of this country, is not the same as it used to be,” Hoenisch said.

Indiana brothers accused of trying to support ISIS

A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted two Indiana brothers for allegedly attempting to provide firearms and other support to the Islamic State (ISIS).

Moyad Dannon, 21, and Mahde Dannon, 20, both of Fishers,appeared in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis, where they face various firearms-related charges and one count of attempting to provide material support and resources, including firearms, to the terrorist group.

The younger Dannon was already awaiting trial on felony theft charges when he introduced his brother to a person working for the FBI in a scheme to provide firearms to the informant, the Justice Department said.

Federal prosecutors said the pair sold illegally obtained firearms to the informant between July and December 2018. They began to make “ghost guns,” weapons that can’t be traced, by purchasing firearms parts without serial numbers online and making .223-caliber semi-automatic rifles.

Those rifles were sold to an undercover FBI agent introduced to the pair by the informant, according to prosecutors. In February, Moyad Dannon traveled with the undercover agent to the U.S.-Mexico border to sell rifles to a potential buyer who said the weapons were going to be shipped to the Middle East for ISIS.

The brothers agreed to make 55 more untraceable rifles they were told would be used by ISIS. They were arrested May 15 during a sting.

Both men face up to 10 years for each firearms charge and 20 years for attempting to provide support to ISIS.

Suspect arrested in murder of California adult book store clerk during armed robbery

Police in northern California have arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with the murder of an adult bookstore clerk during an armed robbery.

Modesto Police say Favian Ramirez faces murder and robbery charges in the death of 38-year-old Cinnamon Eades. He is being held without bail.

Officers responding to the Liberty Adult Books shop found Eades bleeding on the floor behind the counter at approximately 2:15 p.m. Tuesday. She was taken to a local hospital, where she died from her injuries.

CALIFORNIA MAN KILLED IN COSTCO SHOOTING WAS NONVERBAL, HAD INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY, FAMILY SAYS

“It felt like a whodunit,” Modesto Police spokeswoman Sharon Bear of told Fox 40. “We were not sure if it was someone who was known to the victim. We didn’t know if it was a customer.”

Police say Ramirez approached Eades to make a purchase before shooting her and grabbing an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register and fleeing the scene. Ramirez was identified with the help of surveillance footage and other information from a local used-car dealership, where he had been test-driving a vehicle that he drove to the bookstore.

Authorities tracked Ramirez to a home in Ceres, just southeast of Modesto. Ramirez fled the house when he saw the SWAT team  but was arrested a short time later.

A store employee told Fox40 that it would be closed for at least a week out of respect for Eades and her family. The station reported that Eades was a mother of two small boys and a grown daughter.

“She was just amazing,” friend Mikala Price told KCRA 3. “Anybody who met her, she would just light up a room.”

Human remains found on Kentucky property identified as missing mom Savannah Spurlock, police announce

Human remains discovered at a Kentucky home were identified as Savannah Spurlock, putting an end to the monthslong search for the 23-year-old mother, police announced Thursday.

Trooper First Class Robert Purdy with Kentucky State Police told reporters on Thursday afternoon that the remains found just before midnight on the property were identified as Spurlock after an autopsy took place. Purdy said the medical examiner has not yet announced the cause of death.

Spurlock’s father told Fox News earlier Thursday that “justice has been served” after crews discovered the remains at a home believed to be the 23-year-old’s last known location and a person of interest was arrested.

David Sparks, one of the last people believed to be with Spurlock, was taken into custody just before 2 a.m. Thursday and charged with tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse. He was booked into a jail in Madison County.

Cecil Spurlock, 52, told Fox News in an exclusive interview he’d “begged God” to bring the search for his missing daughter to an end.

“For the last week, I begged God, ‘Let’s have closure on it,'” the elder Spurlock said. “He did it.”

MACKENZIE LUECK’S SUSPECTED KILLER CHARGED AS GRUESOME CRIME SCENE DETAILS REVEALED

According to an arrest citation, police received a tip about a foul odor at a Garrard County property Wednesday afternoon. Unidentified remains were discovered that night “concealed in an unnatural position beneath the surface of the ground,” the citation states.

Spurlock, a mother of four who had given birth to twins in December, was last seen on surveillance video Jan. 4 after leaving The Other Bar in Lexington with two men. Police said Spurlock’s last known location was at Sparks’ home in Garrard County, which is located some 40 miles from the bar.

A man suspected of using an elderly person’s credit cards was arrested Monday, months after he was spotted on surveillance camera footage wearing his name tag.

“Remember Chris?,” the Placer County Sheriff’s Office in California posted to its Facebook page Thursday. The department said it had been trying to find Chris Thomason since March, when he was captured on camera using the cards in Sacramento.

‘Heroic’ Virginia rabbi missing after diving into ocean to save a student

A rabbi and day camp counselor in Norfolk, Va., went missing after jumping into the ocean to save a student who struggled to make it back to shore amid choppy waters, according to reports.

The Coast Guard searched for 35-year-old Rabbi Reuven Bauman, a 35-year-old teacher at Yeshiva Toras Chaim in Portsmouth, who was last seen around noon Tuesday when he dove in the water to rescue a 13-year-old camper from choppy waters with rip currents, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

NAOMI CAMPBELL PRAYS AT LUBAVITCHER REBBE’S GRAVE: I HAVE ‘LEARNED SO MUCH FROM HIS WISDOM’

“He acted heroically,” Coast Guard Lt. Steve Arguelles said about Bauman rescuing the child, who was reported safe at False Cape State Park. About 20 people attended a field trip at the state park. Swimming was prohibited in the area they visited.

The Coast Guard, assisted by Virginia Beach fire and police departments and the National Park Service, suspended the search Wednesday morning.

“It’s always a hard decision, and it’s not one we make lightly,” Arguelles told the Virginian-Pilot newspaper. In calling off the search, the Coast Guard considered the rough waters, the size of the area searched and the “likelihood of survivability.”

The Jewish community is still searching for Bauman’s body, according to WTKR.

“This is a terrible loss,” Joel Rubin, representing the Norfolk Jewish community, told the local CBS affiliate. “Rabbi Bauman was the most respected rabbis and teachers in this community. He was a father, a scholar and an outgoing, smart man.”

Bauman is reportedly a father of five, and he taught 7th and 8th-grade secular studies and 3rd-grade Judaic studies at the school.

Good Samaritans in Georgia turn in cash picked up on highway after armored truck mishap, police say

Georgia cops were pleasantly surprised when several Good Samaritans turned in thousands of dollars that spilled out onto a highway earlier this week after the side door of an armored truck suddenly opened.

Dunwoody Police said several people have turned in money they picked up along I-285 near Ashford-Dunwoody Road on Monday night, when the door mishap sent an unspecified amount of money flying into the air.

“So, believe it or not, some people have been returning the money that fell from the armored car,” police said in a Facebook post, calling it a “bizarre occurrence.”

Police shared the image of one do-gooder who was later identified as Randrell Lewis.

According to The Washington Post, Lewis brought back $2,100 while other people brought in a combined $2,300.

Lewis told WXIA that while he thought about what the money could do for his family, he ultimately decided to return it because it wasn’t worth the legal trouble.

Authorities said that anyone caught taking the money would be liable for theft.

Officials were still urging greedy drivers on Wednesday to stop blocking the roadway as “THERE IS NO MORE MONEY!” police said in another post.

The initial report of money flying across the highway came in at around 8 p.m. Monday. Callers informed dispatch that there were at least 15 cars on the highway that stopped to pick up the cash.

Once on the scene, police discovered the armored truck as the source of the money. The crew was only able to gather a few hundred dollars at the time.

Police estimate the total missing cash at around $175,000.

Georgia teenagers staged kidnapping at mall to gain YouTube followers, police say

A teenager screaming for help inside an SUV in the parking lot of a Georgia mall last week was nothing more than a stunt meant to be uploaded to YouTube, according to police.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said Christopher Kratzer, 19, and Ava Coleman, 17, face charges of reckless conduct and raising a false public alarm after the alleged staged kidnapping at The Collection at Forsyth shopping center, located about 35 miles north of Atlanta.

“If you want to create a social media following, I would strongly dissuade you from this stupidity, good armed citizens might have been justified in using force to stop what they legitimately believed was a kidnapping,” Sheriff Ron Freeman said in a Facebook post. “Committing a criminal act for social media likes will get you arrested in Forsyth County, that’s not the kind of attention most people want to have.”

The sheriff’s office said they received multiple 911 calls around 6 p.m. on July 3 about a woman possibly being kidnapped. The woman was tied up with a covering over her head from inside the SUV.

“Deputies were travelling in emergency modes with lights and siren trying to render help to this alleged victim, such driving is not without risk to the public and deputies,” police said.

The SUV was eventually stopped and officers investigating the incident discovered the pair were filming a kidnapping prank for a YouTube video.

“Yes, that’s right for a social media channel to gain more followers,” police said.

Both were arrested and taken to the Forsyth County Jail. Coleman was released on bond, while Krazter is still being held after allegedly violating the terms of his probation for a prior incident, according to the Forsyth County News.

Two city workers in Detroit, Mich., were reportedly injured on Wednesday after firecrackers exploded when they tried to use the toilet in a bizarre “prank gone bad.”

The employees, with the city’s General Services Department, were in the fire department’s storage area and truck repair shop when the incident occurred, according to the Detroit Metro Times.

One person was hospitalized with injuries to his leg and scrotum. The extent of the second person’s injuries was not immediately clear.

Deputy Fire Commissioner Dave Fornell described the situation to the Times as a “prank” that ended badly, while Mike Nevin, president of the Detroit Fire Fighters Association said, “This is an absolute embarrassment.”

City officials on Wednesday didn’t know who placed the firecrackers underneath the toilets. Nevin cleared his association members of any wrongdoing.

The Detroit Police Department — which is said to be investigating — did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.
