She’s not skating by on this one.

An employee of an Indiana KFC has been accused of buying a pair of $85 roller skates with a customer’s credit card, which was used at the drive-thru.

Alexis Hill was booked into jail Thursday for allegedly using a customer’s credit card to buy skates in the spring. She allegedly rang up the patron’s transaction with the card while working at a St. Joseph’s County KFC on April 24, ABC 57 reports.

Law enforcement officials interviewed Hill in June, and the woman admitted to writing down the victim’s credit card number to purchase the skates for her niece, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Florida man disguised as woman robs bank, steals patrol car, police allege

A man in Florida accused of robbing a bank while disguised as a woman has been arrested after he allegedly stole a police cruiser and led deputies on a two-county chase, investigators said.

Gumersindo Reyes Jr., 51, was wearing a gold dress and a red wig when he entered a Chase Bank in Casselberry, northeast of Orlando, and passed a note to the teller demanding money, Police Chief Larry Krantz told reporters. He allegedly left carrying an undisclosed amount of cash in his backpack.

Reyes drew the attention of a passing Seminole County deputy who saw the suspect ditch his disguise behind a bush, Fox 35 Orlando reported.

After failing to subdue Reyes with a stun gun, the deputy chased him into an apartment complex across the street from the bank, WFTV reported. The deputy reached for his firearm to order Reyes to the ground but Reyes also tried to grab the weapon, setting off a struggle.

Reyes then dashed out of the complex and stole the deputy’s patrol vehicle, police said.

“There’s nothing that drives me crazier than to see a ‘bad guy,’ or know that a ‘bad guy’ got behind the wheel of one of our patrol vehicles, even for just one moment,” Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma said. “I’m OK that he was in the car, but he was sitting in the wrong seat.”

Reyes led deputies on a wild chase through Seminole and Orange counties before crashing the vehicle into another car in Maitland where they finally arrested him, police said.

He faced numerous charges including battery on an officer, resisting an officer with violence and robbery with a firearm, according to police records.

Reyes had a criminal history of attempted murder and robbery in Puerto Rico, officials told WFTV.

Florida woman leads police on hours-long chase through Big Lots ceiling after allegedly trying to shoplift

A Florida woman wanted for allegedly shoplifting at a Big Lots store was arrested after trying to make her getaway through a less traditional route: the ceiling.

Kristina Perkins, 37, was in the store, located in Port Charlotte, for several hours on Thursday night before she “entered the women’s restroom with a shopping cart full of merchandise.”

The store manager tried to check on Perkins in the bathroom, but noticed “several garbage cans positioned in a manner to barricade the door,” the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release about the incident.

Perkins was advised that she was caught and police were on the way, but she never left the bathroom. The manager went inside to check on her and noticed “tile missing from the ceiling” and Perkins nowhere in sight.

Eventually, deputies spotted Perkins “several times by removing tiles from various points in the ceiling.” She allegedly didn’t listen to their commands to stop, and kept crawling through the ceiling.

The store was evacuated “due to the danger of Perkins falling through the ceiling” as the 37-year-old allegedly led authorities on the odd chase, which lasted for roughly six hours.

As they were trying to capture Perkins, a deputy found her purse, which reportedly had “three syringes and a spoon with white residue that tested positive for Morphine” inside.

Big Lots, according to the sheriff’s office, suffered “significant damage to their ceiling, duct work and dry wall” and will remain closed until necessary repairs can be made.

Florida animal rescue groups launch desperate search to find disabled dog stolen with car

Florida animal rescue groups have stepped in to help a woman desperate to find her disabled dog after her car was stolen with the husky mix inside.

Wanda Ferrari had left the air conditioning on for her 13-year-old dog Zorra, whose back legs are paralyzed, while she popped into a Dollar Tree in Oakland Park, just north of Fort Lauderdale. When Ferrari returned, she found her car and dog had disappeared.

Rescue groups such as Abandoned Dogs of Everglades have stepped in on Ferrari’s behalf and are asking everyone to spread Zorra’s picture and story. Abandoned Dogs of Everglades has also hired a pet detective and is now offering a $2,000 reward for returning the dog.

“She’s been my whole life. I rescued her and she rescued me, Ferrari told CBS Miami, adding that the dog has been her constant companion as she fights a recurrence of breast cancer.

Zorra uses a pink wheelchair to walk but was lying on a pillow in the backseat of the car when it was stolen.

“I was in shock. And you know, the shock wore off,” Ferrari continued. “And then, I was traumatized, and in tears, because my girl was in the back, you know. I’m like, ‘who would do that? Who would take a car with a dog?’ They probably didn’t know,”

“Whoever took the car, if you just need the car, that’s not a problem. Just please take care of my baby and let me know where to come get her.,” Ferrari pleaded. “Please, if you have her, please, just bring my baby, please bring her back. Just, just please, I don’t care about the car. Bring my baby back.”

Three bronze plaques honoring the victims of Sept. 11 have been stolen from a memorial in New Jersey, just weeks after the world marked 18 years since the terror attacks, investigators said.

The plaques were stolen between Wednesday and Thursday from the Monmouth County memorial at Mount Mitchill Scenic Overlook in Atlantic Highlands, police said.

“This is a place where people especially families come here to remember their loved ones,” Sierra Ortiz told Fox 5 New York. “It’s disgusting that someone would actually do that.”

Each plaque detailed events in a three-hour time span that unfolded on the morning of September 11, 2001, according to the Monmouth County Parks website. Each plaque was set in a rock lining a walkway that led to a statue of an eagle overlooking the New York skyline.

“I constantly walk up that path and read what happened on that day and it’s just unbelievable that someone would take it away,” Cindy Sullivan told the outlet.

The memorial also honored the 147 Monmouth County residents who died in the attacks, according to the park’s website. Their names were carved in stone set beneath the eagle sculpture, which held a beam from one of the towers.

Police have offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Fleetwood Police released a surveillance image of the vehicle involved in Monday’s theft in Richmond Township.

“At approximately 4:10 pm the driver of the pictured vehicle backed up to the device and put the receiver unit and battery charger/power supply in the trunk while officers were involved in traffic stops,” police said Thursday. “The driver then completed a U-turn and fled northbound on 222.”

Police were offering a reward for information about the thief and the device’s whereabouts.

Florida man arrested, caught on video using samurai sword to fight over wheelbarrow

A Florida man was arrested Monday in a months-old attack during which he allegedly using a samurai sword to threaten and assault a jogger as they fought over a wheelbarrow the victim said he found in a pile of trash.

Curtis Miller, 54, was taken into custody on attempted murder charges stemming from an altercation on July 15, according to online records from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

Video released by officials shows Miller seemingly attacking a man, named Todd Beavers, with a sword in a residential Oakland Park neighborhood, while trying to pull the cart away from him.

“When he pulled out the sword, I thought, ‘What am I doing?’ I thought, ‘Is he really going to do this?’” Beavers told WSVN. “I couldn’t believe that he was really gonna try to kill me for a cart.”

Beavers was jogging when he spotted what he thought was a pile of trash up for grabs — at the same time Miller spotted it.

Keyla Concepcion, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, told the news outlet “[Miller] apparently felt that he was there first, so he should have first dibs at anything that was in the pile…Evidently, the jogger felt differently.”

After the alleged altercation, Beavers jogged home — but he said he didn’t realize until he’d almost reached his house that Miller followed him.

“I turned behind me, and he had a sword out, chasing me, so I just kept running,” Beavers said. Outside of his home, surveillance cameras captured a man identified by officials as Miller trying to slash Beavers with a sword.

In the end, Beavers didn’t even get the cart. A woman was caught on surveillance video removing the cart from Beavers’ property. She claimed the wheelbarrow was stolen from her property, where she was having a garage sale — but she said the cart wasn’t for sale.

“I really regret it,” the man who almost got attacked by a samurai sword said. “By the time I got here with the cart and he was still chasing me, I felt like, ‘What did I get myself into for a stupid cart?’ I don’t even need it. I just felt really stupid about it.”
