Florida ‘porch pirate’ caught on camera stealing package while little girl watches

A woman was caught on camera allegedly stealing a package from a Florida home — with a young child, who followed along, watching her.

The unidentified “porch pirate,” as described by the Tampa Police Department, was captured on home surveillance video Sept. 7.

The woman is seen walking up to the front porch of the house, located in the neighborhood’s Audubon Drive, and taking a package that’s seemingly hidden behind a pillar of the porch.

While she takes the package, a young child is seen following closely behind. The two soon leave the house, heading toward the street’s sidewalk and walking away.

Investigators explained in a Facebook post they want to find the adult, and the child — “to explain about consequences to actions.”

Oldest living American WWII veteran celebrates 110th birthday

Lawrence Brooks — a man considered to be the nation’s oldest living World War II veteran — celebrated a huge milestone in Louisiana last week: his 110th birthday.

Brooks, born on Sept. 12, 1909, was honored on Thursday at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. Spotted with a bright lipstick kiss on his cheek at the event, Brooks served in the 91st Engineer Battalion stationed in New Guinea and then the Philippines — a predominately African-American unit of the U.S. Army.

The 110-year-old, who served between 1940 and 1945, was a servant to three white officers and his daily routine included cleaning their sheets and uniforms and shining their shoes. He attained the rank of Private 1st Class during the war.

Brooks’ newfound title comes after the death of Richard Overton, previously the oldest living WWII veteran. Formerly a member of the U.S. Army, Overton died in December at age 112.

The museum has been celebrating Brooks’ birthdays since his 105th, in 2014, according to The Times-Picayune and The New Orleans Advocate.

“We absolutely love Mr. Brooks,” the museum’s vice president, Peter Crean, told the news outlet. “We’ve told him, ‘As long as you keep having birthdays, we are going to keep having birthday parties for you here.'”

“We consider him ‘our veteran,'” Crean said.

Brooks, who uses a walker, is blind in one eye and has poor vision in the other. He does suffer from low blood pressure and dehydration, but his hearing, however, is good, and he’s never suffered from any major diseases or cancers.

“I’ve started to think about not having many birthdays left. But I’m not worried about it, because God has let me live this long already,” Brooks said. “I think it’s because I’ve always liked people so much. Oh yes, I do.”

House explosion in Pennsylvania linked to dad’s suicide on daughter’s wedding day: cops

[Editor’s note: This story discusses suicide. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).]

A Pennsylvania man apparently committed suicide on his daughter’s wedding day by blowing up his suburban Pittsburgh home, authorities say.

Neighbors told police they saw the homeowner standing in front of his residence in Edgewood shortly before an explosion went off inside the home, igniting a fire and eventually destroying the structure.

AT LEAST 22 PEOPLE INJURED AFTER THREE-STORY DECK COLLAPSE IN NEW JERSEY

“The house just collapsed in one large movement with a lot of sound to it,” neighbor Dann Laudermilch, 35, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “By that time it was fully in flames. It went up in flames remarkably fast. I thought it would take longer to burn, but it was like a minute and a half — it was crazy.”

“The house just collapsed in one large movement with a lot of sound to it. By that time it was fully in flames. It went up in flames remarkably fast.”

— Dann Laudermilch, neighbor

Police and fire units responded around 2:30 p.m. to find the man’s vehicle and cell phone out front. Hours passed before a crew using heavy machinery found the man’s body around 8 p.m., Pittsburgh’s WTAE-TV reported.

The death was ruled a suicide and the man’s name was not released. Family members were away from the home at the time, attending the daughter’s wedding, officials said. It remained unclear who lived in the home with the man. No additional deaths were reported.

In addition to Laudermilch, other neighbors described feeling their own homes shake during the explosion, causing them to go outside to find out what happened.

“We came outside to see what was going on, and the house was in flames — still standing — but in flames,” neighbor Donna Antolovich told the Post-Gazette. “Three to five minutes before the house blew up, the owner was standing in front of it. After that, nobody could find him.”

The cause of the explosion remained under investigation, but Edgewood police Chief Robert Payne said it appeared the man “may have been able to disconnect the gas line itself in the basement of the house and of course it wouldn’t take much but a spark to explode the house after that.”

Police said they had been to the home before for domestic issues relating to mental illness. A house next door that was damaged by the fire had recently been sold, and officials say a family had been planning to move in soon.

At least 22 people injured after three-story deck collapse in New Jersey

Three levels of decking attached to a residential building collapsed on top of each other at the Jersey Shore Saturday, injuring at least 22 people, including some children.

The collapse in Wildwood happened at around 6 p.m. during the annual New Jersey Firemen’s Convention, which attracts thousands of current and former firefighters to the resort town.

Cape May Regional Health System said 21 people were taken there, at least three of them children. Eleven patients had been released by 10 p.m., including all the children who were admitted, hospital spokeswoman Susan Staeger told The Associated Press. AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City said at least one additional person was taken there.

The conditions of the hospitalized victims were not immediately clear, but no deaths were reported.

Witness Joann Devito said she was shitting on her deck across the street when she saw the collapse.

“I heard this noise, so I turned and looked and saw the whole thing caving in,” she said. “I saw two women running and screaming. It was horrible.”

Photos and video on social media showed firefighters trying to lift a piece of decking. It was unclear how many people were on or under the decks at the time, or how many were firefighters, but authorities said those who were trapped were quickly removed.

Images showed multiple levels of decking ripped away from the building and reduced to beams and splintered wood. The decks appeared to have been topped by a fourth-floor overhang, which looked to have remained intact. The second and third levels appeared to have pancaked onto a first-floor deck. The overhang looked intact.

Wildwood Fire Chief Daniel Speigel said authorities would not make a statement Saturday amid attempts to clean up and investigate. More information is likely on Sunday, he said.

Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher sues his ex-lawyers, military nonprofit

Decorated Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, who was acquitted of murder in a war crimes trial this past July, has sued two of his former lawyers and a military legal defense nonprofit, according to court documents filed in Texas Friday.

Attorneys Colby Vokey and Phillip Stackhouse and the United American Patriots (UAP) are named in the complaint brought by Gallagher, who alleges that Vokey and UAP orchestrated a “money-making scheme” and purposely delayed his case.

According to the filing, they “allowed [Gallagher] to languish in pre-trial confinement for several months while engaging in delay tactics and needlessly running up the legal bills.” Gallagher was kept in pre-trial confinement at Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar in San Diego for more than seven months.

“Vokey induced [Gallagher] to allow him to represent him in the criminal case by promising that all legal fees would be covered by UAP and that [Gallagher] would not be personally liable for any legal fees or expenses,” court documents state.

Gallagher terminated Vokey in March and severed his relationship with UAP, according to the filing. Stackhouse represented Gallagher until mid-April, when he stepped down.

Vokey filed a lawsuit against Gallagher last month demanding $1 million in alleged unpaid legal fees, according to the complaint. Gallagher is seeking a declaratory judgment stating he doesn’t owe any legal fees and that if fees should be rendered, then UAP should pay them – not Gallagher.

NAVY SEAL EDDIE GALLAGHER SENTENCED TO REDUCED RANK, PARTIAL PAY, AFTER BEING CLEARED OF MURDER CHARGES

Gallagher, a 15-year Navy SEAL, was found not guilty of murdering an Islamic State (ISIS) fighter in Iraq in 2017, as well as charges of witness intimidation and assault. He was convicted on one count of taking a photo with a terrorist’s corpse and was sentenced to reduced rank and partial pay.

Tim Parlatore joined the Navy SEAL’s legal team in March and was Gallagher’s lead defense attorney during his court-martial. Marc Mukasey, one of President Trump’s personal attorneys, joined the legal team in April.

“It’s unfortunate that it came to this,” Parlatore told Fox News on Saturday. “But when attorneys and supposed nonprofits are taking advantage of our service members, they need to be held accountable.”

NAVY SEAL EDWARD GALLAGHER’S DEFENSE LAWYER WANTS TO REJOIN THE NAVY TO TEACH PROSECUTORS, SAYS HE FEARS FOR LAW-ABIDING WARFIGHTERS

UAP says it “generates public awareness and funds legal representation,” according to its website. Gallagher’s complaint alleges that “UAP targets service members in need to use for their advertising campaigns, raising millions of dollars to line their pockets while providing very little to the actual legal representation.”

“We know who was committed to our family and we know who saw us a means to their own ends,” Andrea Gallagher, Eddie Gallagher’s wife, told Fox News on Saturday night. “Eddie and I firmly believe that the truth will be fully exposed.”

Stackhouse told Fox News on Saturday that he had not been served with any papers.

“It’s disappointing it’s come to this, but I’m confident a court will sort it out in the most appropriate manner,” he said.

Vokey did not return Fox News’ request for comment.

A suspected gunman is at large after a shooting that followed a dispute between parents at a pee-wee football game in Fort Worth, Texas, police said Saturday.

Fox 4 News reported that a woman was hit in the leg and a girl was grazed in the back. Both were hospitalized and police said their injuries were not life-threatening.

Investigators believe the son of one of the parents involved in the argument came to the game armed with a handgun and opened fire.

A woman working at the concessions stand described the scene to Fox 4 News.

“It’s just unbelievable, because it’s like, you hear people say that all the time, but you don’t see nothing happen, and this time, it actually happened,” the concession worker said. “I ran outside, and was on the side of that truck, and just said, ‘Come in. Get in.’ Then one lady said she tried to get out of her chair, she said, ‘I’ve been hit,’ and fell to the ground.”

Border Patrol agent was shot and injured Friday night while conducting a traffic stop near the Texas-Mexico border and another agent shot and killed the gunman, authorities said Saturday.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), two agents from the Brackettville station and a Kinney County sheriff’s deputy pulled over a vehicle on Ranch Road 674.

A passenger in the vehicle fired at the agents, injuring one of them. The second agent returned fire and hit the gunman, who was later pronounced dead at the scene. The vehicle’s driver was taken into custody.

CBP later identified the deceased passenger as a 25-year-old man and a U.S. citizen. The driver was identified as a 32-year-old woman, also a U.S. citizen.

The agent who was shot was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and was later airlifted to a San Antonio hospital, according to CBP. Neither the second agent nor the sheriff’s deputy were injured.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted about the incident Saturday night, saying, “Border Patrol Agents go out and do their duty each and every day despite the dangers. My prayers are with the agents involved and their families.”

The FBI and Texas Rangers are investigating the incident, along with CBP’s Office of Professional Responsibility.

Brackettville is located about 115 miles west of San Antonio near the southern border with Mexico. The CBP statement about the incident noted that the area “is frequently used by smugglers to move narcotics and people from the border to San Antonio and other destinations.”

The Marine then held the students briefly down on the ground before getting up. One of the students is picked up by an adult and the other is seen lying on the ground after being tackled.

In a statement to KCRA-TV, the school district said it was aware of the incident and is investigating the situation.

“Stockton Unified is aware of the student matter that took place on 9/11/19 [Wednesday] at Edison High School and the recording circulating on social media. We are actively investigating the situation,” the district said.

Valdez Sarmiento is a recent graduate of the school and was there to help with recruiting but is not a recruiter, the U.S. Marine Corps said.

“He saw a dangerous fight break out. Upon observing that situation, he moved over and broke up the fight,” Maj. Thomas Driscoll told KCRA. “Although, the manner in which he did [could] have been improved, we are proud of Pfc. Valdez Sarmiento for his decision to intervene.”

Valdez Sarmiento has received counseling and been reassigned to office duties, according to the Corps.

The 209 Times said the students had been fighting for “over a minute uninterrupted in the open.”

“[… What] we are posting that parents may find concerning is a Marine recruiter blindside tackling a student so hard to break up the fight that if appears he hurts the student and does more damage than the actual fight itself. He ran full-speed from over 30 yards out,” they said. “Also of concern is the lack of response from actual school staff, as the fight lasted for over a minute uninterrupted in the open.”

People had mixed reactions to how Valdez Sarmiento broke up the fight.

“It was just too excessive … how he came toward the kids,” student Johnny Hempill told KCRA. “I feel like going at a kid, especially when he’s not looking, makes more of an impact.”

But a parent told Fox40 Sacramento the action was justified.

“It could have been a little less of a tackle, but I believe in discipline. These kids were not behaving. Someone’s got to stop it,” the parent said.

Many social media users backed up the Marine’s actions.

“That was a soft tackle to stop a fight using non-lethal force. Crybaby parents need to learn to teach his or her child better,” Twitter user Rudolph Hernandez wrote, while another user said the tackle “looked pretty effective.”

However, user Scott Baerst said, “That was dumb and dangerous. Hope that kid’s back/neck is OK.”

The condition of the students has not been released, according to reports.

The school and Stockton Police Department are investigating the incident.
