$353,000 in jewelry reportedly stolen from apartments in Trump Tower

Detectives in New York City are investigating reports of two thefts inside apartments in Trump Tower on Sunday that resulted in more than $350,000 worth of gems stolen—including a $117,000 diamond bracelet from an apartment on the 59th floor.

Reports of the thefts were first published by the New York Post.

One woman reported various gem-encrusted pieces missing from her 42nd-floor closet. The items reportedly disappeared between June 21 and Sept. 9. A police spokesman told The New York Times that investigators haven’t identified a suspect and are looking at everyone with access to the building.

Trump plans to stay at his penthouse Sunday night. He’s to deliver a speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday.

“It’s not somebody breaking into the building or roaming the halls, trying the doors until they find one that’s open,” one source told the New York Post.

The report said the thefts involved a Graff diamond bracelet and another stash valued at $236,000. That stash included a Harry Winston diamond bracelet.

El Paso church arson attacks prompt FBI to offer $15G for information

The FBI is offering $15,000 in rewards for information leading to the culprits behind a series of arson attacks on three Catholic churches predominantly serving Hispanics and migrants in El Paso, Texas.

The announcement came in a Thursday news release, in which the bureau offered $5,000 for information on each arson attack.

“We are counting on assistance from members of the community to keep our city safe,” the bureau wrote.

The first purported attack came on May 7 at the St. Matthew Catholic Church followed by another one week later at the St. Patrick Cathedral. Then on June 15, firefighters battled heavy smoke at the St. Jude Catholic Church.

The FBI said each church sustained damage from incendiary devices but that no one was injured.

“Every lead will be thoroughly investigated. Regardless of how insignificant you think your information might be, we strongly encourage you to come forward and welcome your information and assistance,” the FBI said.

The FBI’s El Paso field office, the El Paso Fire Marshal’s Office, the El Paso Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) have been carrying out the investigation.

The announcement came six weeks after a gunman opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, killing 22 people and injuring 24 others.

Police said the alleged shooter told investigators he was targeting Mexicans.

An American driver has been arrested in Texas after border agents found 53 illegal immigrants from Mexico and several other countries south of the U.S. border hidden inside a sweltering tractor-trailer, authorities said Friday.

The unidentified driver was the only visible occupant inside the vehicle when it pulled up to the Interstate Highway 35 (IH-35) checkpoint north of Laredo on Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said in a statement.

ARIZONA DRIVER ARRESTED AFTER 31 ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FOUND IN TRACTOR-TRAILER, INVESTIGATORS SAY

A canine alerted border agents to the odors of concealed humans or narcotics from inside the trailer during a primary inspection of the vehicle, the CPB said. Upon further examination, agents said they discovered 53 migrants from Mexico, Ecuador, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, who were “all illegally present in the United States.”

The temperature inside the trailer was recorded at 105 degrees at the time of the discovery, though no one required medical attention, according to the CPB.

Agents arrested the U.S. citizen and all 53 illegal immigrants, who they said would be “processed accordingly.” Border Patrol seized the tractor-trailer.

It was unclear whether the driver is facing charges, but investigators called the incident a “human smuggling attempt.”

Homeland Security Investigations is handling the case.

Florida girl, 6, arrested for battery by school resource officer for temper tantrum: report

A Florida grandmother claims her 6-year-old granddaughter was arrested by a resource officer after throwing a temper tantrum at school — which she says happened because the child suffers from sleep apnea.

Meralyn Kirkland says the child, Kaia Rolle, was acting out at Lucious and Emma Nixon Academy, a charter school in Orlando, as a result of lack of sleep. The 6-year-old was then brought to the principal’s office.

CALIFORNIA WOMAN CAUGHT PUSHING $6,000 WORTH OF STOLEN QUARTERS IN BABY STROLLER, POLICE SAY

Kirkland told WKMG-TV that while there, a school staff employee grabbed Kaia’s wrists, sparking her to lash out and kick her legs. The school resource officer — Officer Dennis Turner, of the Orlando Police Department — handcuffed Kaia and transported her to the Juvenile Assessment Center in Orlando on a battery charge.

Her grandmother said the child was fingerprinted and had her mugshot taken.

The department didn’t immediately return Fox News’ request for comment. Sgt. David Baker told the news outlet that for arrests of people under the age of 12, officers are required to get permission from their watch commander — which he said Turner did not do.

TEXAS MAN WANTED FOR DIVORCING HIS WIFE WITHOUT HER KNOWLEDGE

Kirkland claims that when she told Turner the 6-year-old has sleep apnea, which the family is “working on getting resolved,” the officer didn’t understand why that would be an excuse for the child.

“He says, ‘Well, I have sleep apnea, and I don’t behave like that,'” Kirkland claimed the officer told her.

Kirkland questioned how a child could be arrested for kicking somebody.

“How do you do that to a 6-year-old child and because she kicked somebody? … A literal mug shot of a 6-year-old girl,” she said. “No 6-year-old child should be able to tell somebody that they had handcuffs on them and they were riding in the back of a police car and taken to a juvenile center to be fingerprinted, mug shot.”

Turner also reportedly arrested an 8-year-old that day in a separate incident on Thursday, according to WKMG. Baker told the news outlet Turner did not request permission for that child’s arrest, either. Authorities said an internal investigation is ongoing.

Kirkland says Kaia is supposed to report to court Oct. 16 and if she doesn’t a warrant will be issued for her arrest.

Texas 3-year-old dies after being left in hot car, police say

Westlake Legal Group police-lights- Texas 3-year-old dies after being left in hot car, police say Nicole Darrah fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc d84fb65c-7f93-586f-a2e6-6254b9f26bbf article

A 3-year-old boy died in Texas on Saturday after his parents left him inside a hot car by accident, police said.

The boy and his family had just returned to their San Antonio home from their 6-year-old son’s tee ball game in the early afternoon when his parents and older brothers went inside.

WHY DO PARENTS FORGET THEIR CHILDREN IN HOT, PARKED CARS?

His parents realized the child was left inside the car, and went back outside to get him — “where they found him unresponsive,” the San Antonio Express-News reported.

“This really was just a case of parents who just got distracted,” San Antonio Police Lt. Jesse Salame said. “They discovered him unresponsive in the vehicle, pulled him out and began life-saving measures, but were unsuccessful.”

Salame described the situation as a “horrific tragedy,” and said both parents thought the other had taken the child out of the car.

Temperatures in San Antonio on Saturday reached a high of 93 degrees, according to the news outlet.

FLORIDA MAN WITH DOWN SYNDROME DIED IN HOT CAR AS CARETAKER SLEPT OFF KRATOM OVERDOSE, SHERIFF SAYS

According to Kids and Cars, a nonprofit organization that tracks such deaths, the boy in San Antonio was the 43rd child to die in a hot car this year — the sixth in Texas.

Dr. Rosina McAlpine, a parent expert and CEO of Win Win Parenting, previously told Fox News that oftentimes when parents forget their children inside hot vehicles, it’s because they’re often in a rush to get to work, an appointment, or another obligation and “forget they haven’t dropped the child off at day care or school and rush off to the meeting or work distracted, leaving their child behind.”

“Later they remember in shock but often it is too late,” she said, noting some parents alternate dropping their child off at day care, and might “forget it was their turn.” McAlpine said some caregivers “knowingly” leave children inside cars, as the kids “are sleeping and don’t want to disturb them in the hope they’ll get back before they awake.”

Those who leave their children in the car also may not understand the danger they’re in, or consider how fast cars can heat up. The interior temperature of a car can quickly skyrocket, with 80 percent of the total temperature rise happening in the first 30 minutes a child is inside a car — where the temperature inside can exceed those outside by up to 50 degrees.

Texas man wanted for divorcing his wife without her knowledge

A Texas man is wanted by authorities for divorcing his wife — apparently without her knowledge.

Paul Nixon, 51, allegedly broke it off from his wife using forged documents behind her back, authorities claimed. Nixon’s wife told investigators on May 14 the man “filed for divorce and completed the entire proceedings without her knowledge or consent and that the court had already completed all hearings and filed the final divorce decree.”

Nixon, of Harris County, submitted “several forged documents and false information” to a district court, “including a forged waiver of service” and a forged signature from a notary public in an effort to divorce his wife,” according to a press release posted on the constable’s Facebook page.

Nixon’s wife “was very surprised,” Constable Mark Herman told the New York Post. “In this particular case, the gentleman decided to go through a divorce but the only problem is, he left his wife out of the process. And that’s a violation of the law here in Texas.”

The constable said Nixon’s wife “started finding things showing that he was spending money on jewelry, so she confronted him and he told her that they were actually divorced.”

Nixon and his wife were only married for a “couple of years” before he moved forward with their divorce, without her.

The divorce decree has been vacated since it was filed fraudulently, officials said. Herman said Nixon and his wife “are still legally married.”

Nixon is wanted for aggravated perjury and has a no-bond warrant out for his arrest.

Family of Whitey Bulger to file $200M wrongful death claim: report

Westlake Legal Group whitey-bulger-AP Family of Whitey Bulger to file $200M wrongful death claim: report Melissa Leon fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/massachusetts fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast fox-news/us/crime/organized-crime fox-news/us/crime fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/boston fox news fnc/us fnc article 7c5ef53f-5658-5a76-a251-74062536b6a2

The family of notorious Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger plans to file a $200 million wrongful death claim against the federal government, according to a report.

The family says Bulger was “deliberately placed in harm’s way” when he was transferred to a West Virginia prison in October 2018 and placed in the general inmate population, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday. Hours later, the 89-year-old Bulger died of blunt force injuries to his head.

Officials have said two Massachusetts mobsters are suspected in Bulger’s death, but no charges have been filed.

WHITEY BULGER, INFAMOUS BOSTON MOB BOSS, KILLED IN PRISON, MULTIPLE REPORTS SAY

Bulger was sentenced to life in prison in 2013 for his role in 11 gangland murders and other crimes, including racketeering, extortion, conspiracy, money-laundering and drug dealing.

The onetime leader of Boston’s Winter Hill Gang became one of the nation’s most-wanted fugitives after he fled Boston in 1994 with authorities closing in. He was finally captured in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011. Bulger spent more than 16 years at large and 12 years on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list.

He had also been an FBI informant.

NOTORIOUS BOSTON MOB BOSS WHITEY BULGER ‘WANTED TO DIE,’ FORMER PRISON WARDEN CLAIMS

A former prison official said Bulger may have “wanted to die,” since the ex-gangster repeatedly refused medical treatment for severe chest pains at the Florida prison where he was initially held, which prompted his transfer to Hazelton federal prison in West Virginia.

Chicago police hunt suspect in shootings that wounded officer, woman

Chicago police are searching for a man suspected of shooting and injuring a police officer on Saturday, as well as shooting a woman in the back in broad daylight on Wednesday, officials said.

The suspect, 45-year-old Michael Blackman, managed to flee the scenes of both shootings and should be considered “armed and dangerous,” Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

The injured officer, who has not been identified, was shot and wounded at around 8:40 a.m. while serving a warrant on the city’s South Side. He is 40 years old and a 16-year veteran of the Chicago police force in the fugitive apprehension team, Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said during a news conference at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

Doctors said the officer was shot once in the groin and twice in his lower left leg. According to Guglielmi, the officer lost nearly a third of his blood despite applying a tourniquet on himself. The officer underwent surgery and was listed in stable condition.

“He came basically bleeding to death,” said Jane Kayle Lee, the trauma surgeon who operated on the officer for about 2 hours. “He had already lost a significant amount of blood.”

Blackman is accused of shooting a 29-year-old woman while he was riding a bicycle in the Fulton River District on Wednesday, police Superintendent Eddie Johnson told Fox 32 Chicago. The woman was shot in the back but is expected to survive, he said.

WASHINGTON, DC, SHOOTING LEAVES 1 DEAD, 5 INJURED: REPORTS

On Friday, police released surveillance video from a bicycle shop showing Blackman at the counter getting a flat tire fixed just minutes before Wednesday’s shooting.

Fox 32 Chicago reported that the fugitive apprehension team was trying to arrest Blackman when the shooting took place at around 8:40 a.m. After officers knocked on the door, Blackman ran out the back of the home and shot the officer

SHOOTING AT CROWDED SOUTH CAROLINA BAR LEAVES 2 DEAD, 8 WOUNDED

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot asked Chicagoans to pray for the officer and his family, as well as all first responders and law enforcement officials “who work day and night to protect our residents.”

“We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates,” she said.

In a separate incident, two other officers were injured after responding to a call about a man with a gun inside of a South Side restaurant shortly after 4 a.m. Saturday. After the officers patted down the man and found his gun, he pushed past them, ran outside, got into a vehicle and drove off, dragging both officers before getting away.

The two officers were hospitalized with abrasions, contusions, internal injuries and possible bone fractures. Their names and the name of the driver, if police know it, haven’t been released.

Michelle Carter denied parole but will get early release after conviction in boyfriend’s suicide: report

Westlake Legal Group michelle-carter-court Michelle Carter denied parole but will get early release after conviction in boyfriend's suicide: report fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/massachusetts fox-news/us/crime fox-news/health/mental-health fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 43b3a8da-96cc-5163-bd4d-a204e3189360

[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 Massachusetts woman convicted in 2017 of involuntary manslaughter for encouraging her boyfriend to commit suicide will reportedly be released from prison early despite having been denied parole earlier this week, according to reports.

Michelle Carter, 22, began her 15-month sentence in February after the Massachusetts Supreme Court agreed with the lower court’s guilty verdict. Prosecutors said Carter was 17 in July 2014 when she persuaded her boyfriend, 18-year-old Conrad Roy III, to kill himself through dozens of texts and phone calls. Roy died when his pickup truck filled with carbon monoxide in a store parking lot in Fairhaven, Mass.

NEW MICHELLE CARTER DOC ON HBO COMPELS CONRAD ROY’S GRIEVING PARENTS TO COME FORWARD: ‘IT WAS HORRIBLE’

After completing nearly half of her sentence, Carter appeared in a closed-door hearing Thursday to request to be paroled after serving seven months. The Massachusetts State Parole Board denied that request. A spokesman from the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office told CNN Friday that Carter will still be released from prison weeks early after earning some “good time.” She is set to be released March 13 instead of May 5.

“The [board] is troubled that Ms. Carter not only encouraged [Conrad Roy III] to take his own life, she actively prevented others from intervening in his suicide,” the Massachusetts parole board wrote in the decision to deny parole, according to The Hill. “Ms. Carter’s self-serving statements and behavior, leading up to and after his suicide, appear to be irrational and lacked sincerity.”

“Given subject’s behavior in facilitating victim’s death, release not compatible with best interest of society,” wrote one of the two parole board members, according to USA Today. She “did not provide sufficient insight into reason for lack of empathy at time of crime and surrounding time period.”

Carter’s attorney, Joseph Cataldo, told People magazine he was hopeful the board would have granted Carter parole give that she was 16 when she knew Conrad Roy III and 17 when he died. He added that his client also was struggling with mental health issues at the time Roy III committed suicide. Both teens had struggled with depression and Roy III had attempted suicide several times before his death.

“She has conducted herself within the confines of her release, so I believe she was an excellent candidate for parole. By no means is she a danger to society,” Cataldo said.

The Massachusetts Supreme Court wrote in February that evidence showed Carter was guilty “by her wanton or reckless conduct, she caused the victim’s death by suicide.” Prosecutors said Roy III briefly got out of his carbon monoxide ridden truck to speak on the phone with Carter when he began to have second thoughts. Carter sent a text to a friend, saying she told Roy III to “get back” in his vehicle.

“The time is right and you are ready … just do it babe,” Carter wrote in a text to Roy II the day he died, according to The Hill. “You can’t think about it. You just have to do it. You said you were gonna do it. Like I don’t get why you aren’t,” she wrote in another message.

Her attorneys appealed the case a second time to the U.S. Supreme Court, arguing that her messages were protected under the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of speech. Police said Carter also misled family and friends in the days and hours before her boyfriend’s death, People reported.

Owner of Antifa-friendly Portland bar let patrons use ‘illegal weapons’ against conservative activists, state probe says

The owner of a reportedly Antifa-friendly bar in Portland, Ore., knowingly allowed patrons to use “illegal weapons” against conservative activists during a violent clash in May, an investigation by state regulators alleges, according to a report.

The report by the Oregon Liquor Control Commssion (OLCC) also says the owner of Cider Riot refused to remove unruly customers from his property and gave misleading statements to authorities, the Oregonian/OregonLive reported.

The attorney for bar owner Abram Goldman-Armstrong balked at the investigation’s findings.

“It’s not clear what OLCC would have wanted my client to do,” attorney Juan Chavez said. “Did they want Abe to be both a one-man police force and a bouncer, all while he was dealing with a small triage hospital in his cidery?”

The commission’s investigation has recommended multiple administrative charges against Goldman-Armstrong and his staff.

The investigation into Cider Riot was prompted after several complaints were filed with the agency following the May 1 brawl.

Law enforcement officials have also charged conservative activist and Patriot Prayer founder Joey Gibson, as well as five other men associated with the conservative group, with felony riot offenses. Gibson faces a $1 million lawsuit from Goldman-Armstrong.

On Friday, a judge rejected Gibson’s request to have the case moved outside Portland, the Oregonian/OregonLive.con reported.

Chavez also claimed Patriot Prayer encouraged its supporters on social media to report Cider Riot to regulators.

Investigators say Goldman-Armstrong photographed patrons using “illegal weapons” during the fight, which was largely captured on video.

“Goldman-Armstrong stated that his patrons were only acting in self-defense but clearly, according to the video, he was present and watching as patrons displayed aggressive behavior,” wrote state inspector Genny Welp, according to the Oregonian/OregonLive.

During his first interview with regulators, a Cider Riot security guard omitted that he left his post, used mace and fought with conservative protesters.

Goldman-Armstrong, a vocal antifascist, plans to sell his bar, which has taken on some debt, telling Willamette Week he hopes the buyer will be someone who shares his political views.

“We’re not going to sell to racist s—–gs, and I don’t think the other investors would feel comfortable selling to someone who doesn’t believe in equal rights for all humans,” he said. “Political views don’t usually play a part in business, so we’re not ruling out anyone unless they’re really terrible.”

An OLCC spokesperson said the agency plans to outline formal charges against Cider Riot next week, Oregonian/OregonLive reported.
