Virginia man gets probation, small fine, for stealing WWII dog tags from National Archives

A Virginia National Guard sergeant — who previously faced 1 year in prison — was sentenced to 18 months of supervised probation Wednesday after being convicted of stealing World War II dog tags from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Maryland.

Robert Rumsby, 30, admitted taking the dog tags that belonged to four U.S. airmen killed in plane crashes in 1944, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court last May. Rumsby said his wife is the great-niece of one of the airmen killed, so he gave the dog tags to her grandmother as a gift, He said he gave another to a relative of one of the deceased airmen.

Rumsby added his mission was to give the tags to the families of the dead soldiers he met while researching a plane crash that killed his great uncle, according to Stars and Stripes.

“I think the intent was there. I think the approach was wrong. Even at the time, I knew the approach was wrong,” Rumsby told the outlet last May. “I had taken four identification tags from those record groups specifically for families I knew would treasure them.”

U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas DiGirolamo said the sentence was given to promote respect for the law and protect “national treasures” stored at the Maryland-based National Archives.

Rumsby’s defense attorney Peter Fayne had argued his client wasn’t motivated by greed.

“His heart and intent were in the right place, but he accepts full responsibility for the grave mistake he made,” Fayne said.

Rumsby reportedly was holding his infant daughter in his arms during the hearing, adding that he sent a letter to National Archives officials in 2011, asking if dog tags could be released to the relatives of soldiers. He said he hadn’t heard back.

All of the dog tags have been returned to the archives, according to Christian Naylor, NARA’s chief operating officer.

DiGirolamo also ordered Rumsby to pay a $5,000 fine.

Drexel University professor’s strip club purchases with research grant funds trigger theft arrest

A former Drexel University department chair is facing criminal charges after an audit found he spent $96,000 in research grant funds at strip clubs and sports bars.

Chikaodinaka Nwankpa, 57, the former head of Drexel’s Engineering Department, was arrested last week on two charges of theft.

“Mr. Nwankpa inappropriately and criminally diverted tens of thousands of dollars that were allocated for research purposes toward his own private enjoyment,” Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said.

Nwankpa was freed on bail after a court appearance, Fox 29 Philadelphia reported.

Krasner said Nwankpa tried to hide the strip-club visits by itemizing the charges as catering and food, ignoring the fact that most took place between midnight and 2 a.m.

He said Nwankpa spent another $89,000 in research grant funds on iTunes, meals and other unauthorized purchases.

The university last October reached a settlement with the federal government — the source of the research funds — that called for Drexel to reimburse the stolen money to the feds.

After the audit, Nwankpa resigned and repaid Drexel $53,000.

2 men plead guilty to stealing millions in rare books from Pittsburgh library

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-5fdc9077472547b7a23f4f9a18813c0b 2 men plead guilty to stealing millions in rare books from Pittsburgh library Tyler Olson fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania fox-news/us/crime/robbery-theft fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc article 90617829-d1d7-50b7-9484-abd072451b80

Two men are awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to stealing millions in “rare and valuable books” from the Carnegie Library in Pittsburgh on Monday.

John Schulman and Greg Priore pled guilty to felony theft and other charges, according to court documents. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the books were worth upwards of $8 million. Their sentencing hearing will be April 17 with Judge Alex Bicket.

“The shock, the anger and the hurt we feel that individuals who were close to us, who were trusted by us, who were considered friends and colleagues to many of us at the library, would abuse the faith we had in them for personal gain will be with us for a very long time,” library spokesperson Suzanne Thinnes told the Post-Gazette. “We are hopeful that the sentences given to these two individuals will reflect the significant damage done not only to Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, but to the literary community near and far.”

Priore managed the library’s rare book room, according to the Post-Gazette, giving the two men the opportunity to commit their crimes which continued from 1992 to 2017, according to the deputy district attorney prosecuting the case. Priore would allegedly steal the books from the library before giving them to Schulman, who co-owned the rare book shop Caliban Books and would pay Priore for his theft.

Each man was charged with more than 15 counts of varying severity before they negotiated plea deals in which they admitted to multiple felonies. The rest of the charges were withdrawn by District Attorney Stephen Zappala’s office.

The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh was the idea of 19th-century steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, according to its website, whose $1 million gift to the city funded the main library, which opened in 1895, and five branches.

New York’s new bail law springs bank robbery suspect who pulls off another heist: cops

New York’s new bail-reform law is being blamed for the release of an accused serial bank robber who may have struck another bank after he got out of jail.

Gerod Woodbury, 42, was charged Wednesday with robbing four Manhattan banks since Dec. 30, according to the New York Post.

After being locked up, he was sprung the next day under the new law, which did away with bail in cases involving so-called nonviolent crimes, according to the New York Post.

On Friday, just a day after being released, Woodbury made his way to Brooklyn where he robbed another bank — his fifth in a two-week span, the paper reported, citing law enforcement sources.

The Post broke the story on its front page with the headline, “Laughing All the Way to the Bank.”

The paper reported that after Woodbury was released from jail Thursday, sources quoted him as saying, “I can’t believe they let me out. “What were they thinking?”

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea highlighted Woodbury’s case to slam the bail reform law.

NEW YORK LAWMAKER BLASTS NEW BAIL LAWS AS DANGEROUS TO COMMUNITIES: ‘THERE’S NO COMMON SENSE’

“What motivation does this suspect have to return to court? None,” he tweeted over the weekend. “This makes NYPD cops’ jobs harder, and makes New Yorkers less safe.”

The law, enacted last year under New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s signature, took effect Jan. 1.

Supporters said the law will prevent indigent people who can’t afford bail from being locked up indefinitely for nonviolent crimes. Those released on their own recognizance promise the judge to return on their next court date.

Woodbury was charged with handing tellers threatening notes and making off with more than $1,000 in two of the crimes, the Post reported.

Police said in each of the four robberies Woodbury wasn’t in possession of a gun or another weapon.

He was booked on nonviolent robbery and grand larceny charges, according to reports.

Texas man with license to carry shoots, kills suspected robber at home cookout

A Texas man licensed to carry a handgun fatally shot one of three suspects during a botched armed robbery at a home cookout Friday night, investigators said.

The Dallas Police Department said in a news release that the incident happened at 11:55 p.m. on the 3400 block of Chicago Street in Dallas.

The three unidentified suspects approached the front yard where guests were socializing and attempted to rob them at gunpoint. Two of the suspects had handguns, police told FOX4 Dallas-Fort Worth.

An unnamed man, who was a licensed handgun carrier visiting the residence, drew his weapon and shot one suspect, police said in the release. The two other suspects escaped and remain at-large.

The wounded suspect was rushed to a hospital, where he later died, police said. The suspect was not immediately identified.

California burglary suspect caught on camera falling through ceiling of tobacco shop

Police investigating a burglary at a tobacco shop in Northern California last month had a key piece of evidence that helped them identify a suspect: video of the man falling through the ceiling.

The Sonora Police Department wrote on Facebook the incident happened on Dec. 22, when officers received a call for a burglary alarm sounding at a business just after 6 a.m. Officers arriving at the scene found no signs of forced entry from the exterior of the building but eventually discovered a “man-sized hole” in the ceiling.

The suspect and a purported accomplice “actually bored a hole through the ceiling from a vacant building that was above that business and probably spent a couple hours doing it but they broke into the business,” Sonora Police Chief Turu Vanderwiel told Fox 40.

PHILADELPHIA MAN ROBS PHARMACY BECAUSE OF ‘SICK CHILD,’ HANDS CASHIER NOTE: ‘YOU HAVE 15 SECONDS’

After they examined the hole that led to an empty space upstairs, officials said the investigation revealed that forced entry into the business downstairs, Cigarettes Cheaper, was made through a rear door.

But, the suspect — later identified as 40-year-old Storm Corral — had made it only to the back room of the business before he tripped an alarm. He then tried to run back up through the hole into the space upstairs, but surveillance footage caught him falling from the ceiling into the storage room during his rushed escape.

“I think when the alarm was tripped it kind of thwarted their activities and they got away with very little but caused a great deal of damage to the business itself,” VanderWiel told Fox 40.

TEXAS MAN CHARGED WITH MURDER AFTER 10-MONTH-OLD BABY ‘CRAMMED’ IN BACKPACK DIES IN CAR

An employee told Fox 40 that Corral was able to get away with only a bag of rolling tobacco and two energy drinks, which he snatched from the back room while triggering thousands of dollars worth of damage in the mess he left behind.

Police said they were able to identify Corral as a suspect after reviewing the surveillance video and receiving tips from the community.

“At times like this is when it becomes very helpful for solving investigations,” VanderWiel told Fox 40.

The suspect “subsequently confessed to the crime” after investigators found him Monday, according to police. They transported Corral to the Tuolumne County Jail and booked him on charges of burglary and conspiracy to commit a crime, with a bail set at $50,000. Officials said Corral already was on probation and had a history of theft and burglary.

While Corral has been arrested, officials said the investigation into the incident was ongoing and they were looking into the possible accomplice.

Florida woman arrested for threatening McDonald’s employees over dipping sauce dispute, police say

A Florida woman was not “lovin’ it” after she was arrested last week, accused of threatening McDonald’s employees when she didn’t get the dipping sauces she wanted with her meal, police said.

Maguire Marie Mclaughlin, 19, was charged with one count of disorderly conduct and one count of resisting arrest after she threatened to “rob” a McDonald’s in Vero Beach early Wednesday morning.

According to an arrest affidavit, River County Sheriff’s deputies went to the fast-food chain on 20th Street around 4 a.m. following reports of an “irate” woman at the drive-thru window.

Witnesses told police that the woman, later identified as Mclaughlin, “ordered a large amount of food” and requested “one flavor of every dipping sauce” after she already had paid. Employees told Mclaughlin that the restaurant charges 25 cents per sauce.

Mclaughlin began swearing at the employees and threatened to get “the sauce by whatever means necessary, however, could not specify what she meant by that,” the affidavit stated.

Police interviewed Mclaughlin on the scene and described her as having glossy eyes and slurred speech, with breath that smelled of alcohol.

While attempting to arrest her, Mclaughlin began to resist but was eventually restrained and taken to the Indian River County Jail for processing.

She posted bond later that day and is due back in court at the end of the month.

Florida caregiver accused of stealing $1.1 million from woman before she died

A Florida woman was charged Friday with stealing over $1.1 million from an elderly woman for whom she was working as an unlicensed caregiver, officials said.

Anna Bullinger, 55, was charged in Sarasota County on a charge of exploitation of the elderly.

Investigators said the victim was Peggy Nardone, a Nokomis widow who was 94 when she died in June of last year.

Nardone had hired Bullinger in 2014 to drive her to doctor’s appointment and run errands to the bank and supermarket, court papers showed. She worked 40 hours a week and was paid $20 an hour.

ISRAELI NATIONAL, 26, ARRESTED AFTER TRYING TO CASH $1M CHECK FROM HUSBAND, 77, OF JUST FOUR MONTHS: REPORT

“It is shocking. The only reason they found out is because the last check she wrote was the day after the victim died, which was $90,000,” Carlos Verondi, a detective with the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, told Fox 13 Tampa.

The sheriff’s office issued a news release Friday that said starting in January of 2015, Bullinger, of Sarasota, was able to steal over $500,000 from Nardone by cashing 147 checks.

“Bullinger is also suspected of transferring a trust account valued at $650,000 to her daughter in January 2019,” the news release said. “Collectively, the amount stolen from the victim totals $1,102,307.”

Bullinger was arrested on New Year’s Eve and released the same day on bail.

She denied the charges in a brief interview with Fox 13 at her front door on Friday.

“That’s not true. Goodbye,” she said.

Linda Howell, a neighbor of Nardone’s, told WWSB-TV she used to see Bullinger and other caretakers come and go.

“We had a little episode where the caretaker broke down crying to my husband about how awful it was that she was having to  spend her life taking care of Peggy,” she told the station.

“He saw people fighting and he knows those people in the video but he never touched that man,” Isataturay Conteh told the paper. “I don’t know all his friends. Abu goes to school and comes home. We expect him always around 7 or 8 p.m.”

Conteh was charged with second-degree murder, gang assault, and robbery, according to the paper.
