Massachusetts police used sock to calm emu that ‘terrorized’ community

A Massachusetts community can sleep a little easier after a high-stakes police operation Monday nabbed a menace that had “terrorized” locals: an emu.

Police officers in Franklin, a city roughly 45 miles south of Boston, spotted the tall creature and didn’t know what to do, blaming deficient police academy training on the crucial subject that left them with “little to no training in corralling large birds.”

OHIO GOAT NAMED ‘BIG BOY’ BREAKS INTO HOME, FOUND NAPPING IN BATHROOM

Undeterred, investigators said in a Facebook post they “went to work and quickly found the owner of [said] Emu,” and then set off to find the massive bird itself.

The bird’s owner, Kathy Gatchell, told WFXT she isn’t sure how the emu got out of its pen, but the jailbird’s skills and disposition made it a high-risk escapee, with Gatchell describing emus as “very difficult to catch” and not “very friendly.”

Those working to find the emu spent nearly an hour searching for it through the woods. Gatchell said the bird “didn’t let us get too close, as soon as we got close she’d run.”

Eventually, someone had the idea to play emu noises from their phone to try to attract the bird.

Sgt. Jason Reilly, one of the officers on the mission, said that when the bird got close, one police officer “took his sock off and put it over the emu’s head” — which is apparently a way to calm them down — and the cops then led the bird home.

“In a joint operation with the Animal Control Officer and the Franklin Police Safety Division, Officer Rosa and Sgt Reilly were able to bring the Emu home where it can no longer terrorize motorists of Lincoln Street,” the department wrote online. “No job too small no bird too big!”

Emus are the second-largest bird by height in the world, after the ostrich (and they’re not nearly as amiable or easy to find as another popular big bird that tends to confine itself to one particular street). It’s unclear how tall the emu spotted in Franklin was, but it certainly wasn’t native to the area, as the birds call Australia home.

Frank McCormick shared video on Facebook of his savage son Charlie, who got spooked by a leaping animatronic spider at a store.

“Charlie’s from the streets, apparently,” the dad captioned the clip of his son on Sunday, as Fox 23 reported.

Man tried walking 351 miles to have sex with deputy he thought was 14-year-old girl, prosecutors say

A man was arrested after allegedly walking hundreds of miles from Indiana to Wisconsin to have sex with a teen — who turned out to be an undercover sheriff’s deputy.

Tommy Lee Jenkins, 32, recently moved from Oshkosh, Wis., to Whitestown, Ind., and on Oct. 1 started chatting with someone named “Kylee,” who he thought was a 14-year-old girl living in Neenah, Wis., with her mom, federal prosecutors said.

Jenkins allegedly “began demanding sexually explicit photographs from ‘Kylee’ and making plans to engage in sexual activity,” according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

When he was rejected, authorities claim Jenkins decided to walk to her — 351 miles away. While he walked, “Jenkins continued to engage ‘Kylee’ in sexually explicit conversations and updated her as to his current location.”

The 32-year-old told the teen he wanted to have 500 children with her in one year, the Oshkosh Northwestern reported, citing court documents.

As it turns out, “Kylee” was not a 14-year-old — but a Winnebago County sheriff’s deputy working with the Internet Crimes Against Children task force.

When Jenkins arrived in Winnebago County on Oct. 10, he was arrested by local authorities and the FBI.

“Our nation faces an epidemic of child sexual abuse, with the Internet making it too easy for predators to communicate with children across the country,” U.S. Attorney Matthew Krueger said in a statement. “The Justice Department is committed to working with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to prosecute child sexual abuse aggressively.”

Jenkins was charged with using a computer to attempt to persuade, induce or entice a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity. He faces a lifetime prison sentence if convicted and, according to online records, remains jailed at the Brown County Jail in Wisconsin.

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.

Man dies after ‘very hot’ fish cake burned his throat so badly he couldn’t breathe: report

A new report says a 51-year-old British wedding planner died earlier this year after he reportedly ate a fish cake so hot it burned his throat, causing swelling to his airways that ultimately impeded his breathing.

Darren Hickey — who was described by his partner, Neil Parkinson, as a “larger-than-life character” —  reportedly sampled a fish cake at a wedding venue around noon back on April 4, South West News Service (SWNS), a British news agency, reports.

TEEN WITH SEVERE DAIRY ALLERGY SERVED FATAL DISH DESPITE ALERTING WAITSTAFF TO DIET NEEDS, CORONER SAYS 

The pain from the burn led Hickey, a stroke survivor, to seek medical attention at the Urgent Care Ward at Chorley Hospital. Medical professionals reportedly sent him home with acetaminophen and told him to return if the pain worsened. Hickey then went home to rest.

That evening, Parkinson, 55, claims he heard Hickey “making noises” and rushed upstairs. He reportedly found Hickey, of Bolton, Lancashire, choking.

“He was stood up choking and coughing so I banged his back but then he slid forward onto the floor,” Parkinson said, according to SWNS. Hickey was taken by ambulance to Royal Bolton Hospital, where he was pronounced dead just after midnight that evening. His death came roughly 12 hours after he’d sampled the cake.

The recent inquest into the man’s death heard by Bolton Coroners’ Court ruled that the burns to his throat caused extreme pain and swelling. The swelling to his airways eventually made it impossible for him to breathe and swallow.

Dr. Patrick Waugh, a pathologist who performed Hickey’s post-mortem, said the burns were far enough down in the man’s throat that they would not have been seen without specialized equipment.

Waugh compared the burns to those sustained by people who breathe in smoke during a house fire.

WOMAN BATTLING RARE ‘SUICIDE DISEASE’ HAS LEG AMPUTATED IN HOPES OF FINDING RELIEF FROM CHRONIC PAIN CONDITION

Hickey’s cause of death was ruled asphyxiation.

Acting Senior Coroner Alan Walsh called the wedding planner’s death an “immense tragedy.”

“I believe there are enormous lessons to be learned,” he said. “This was caused by eating a fish cake, very small and very hot but with catastrophic consequences.”

California man kidnapped girl, 17, who worked with pals to nab him in their own unofficial operation: cops

A California man was arrested after allegedly kidnapping a girl who, with the help other female teens, lured the man — in an unofficial “sting operation” — to help expose him as an older man looking to sleep with underage girls.

Richard Dreyfus, 32, was contacted by a group of girls on social media and planned to meet up at a location in Vista. When at the spot on Sunday, Dreyfus convinced the 17-year-old girl, whom he allegedly kidnapped, to get into his vehicle to talk. Then he immediately drove away, officials said.

Dreyfus drove the girl several miles, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release. During that time, the teen “was able to send a message for help to the group, who called law enforcement.”

Deputies were able to call Dreyfus’s cell phone and he pulled over. The teen quickly fled from his vehicle, investigators said, adding she was rescued “unharmed.”

Dreyfus was arrested and charged with kidnapping, sending harmful matter to a minor and communication with a minor for specific offenses.

“There does not appear to be any relationship between the suspect and victim outside of their communication through social media,” the sheriff’s office said.

Investigators said they “strongly” discourage members of the public to try to catch criminals.

“These types of situations can be extremely dangerous and should be handled by your local law enforcement agency,” officials said.

“The Sheriff’s Department takes all crimes against our children extremely serious and is committed to keeping our children and communities safe. If you have information involving a crime, please report it to your local law enforcement agency.”

German bank robber’s 20-hour-long court rant cut off by judge before prison sentence, report says

Westlake Legal Group iStock-gavel German bank robber's 20-hour-long court rant cut off by judge before prison sentence, report says Louis Casiano fox-news/world/world-regions/germany fox-news/world/world-regions/europe fox-news/world/crime fox-news/odd-news fox news fnc/world fnc article 38785952-c927-58d8-9397-ff7c0e252eed

A German man jailed for committing three bank robberies reportedly gave a very rambling, 20-hour-long statement before his sentencing Monday that included anecdotes about his fitness routine and accounts from his criminal career.

A judge in Hamburg’s district court cut off Michael Jauernik before sentencing him to 12-and-a-half years in prison for three bank heists between 2011 and 2018, in which he shot one employee, The Guardian reported.

She said she regretted not interrupting Jauernik, 71, earlier for his repetitions and “excessive digressions.”

Jauernik started robbing banks in the 1970s and served several jail terms. He gained some notoriety in the 1980s when he was dubbed the “Thursday robber” for holding up a string of banks shortly before closing time on Thursdays.

During his prolonged statement, he reportedly said he was “more intelligent and clever than any employee of the criminal police agency” and bragged about his daily fitness regimen in jail. He also boasted about doing situps three times each day and doing 5-K runs, the report added.

Jauernik said he went back to robbing banks after working as a night porter where he found his pension payments “pitiful.” He justified the robberies by insinuating he targeted corrupt financial institutions.

“I didn’t rob supermarkets or old women,” Jauernik said.

The unnamed judge said it was unlikely he would be rehabilitated.

“We are sure that you will still think it legitimate to rob banks and threaten people in 12 years’ time,” she said. “You suffer from a narcissistic personality disorder, which was on display to everyone who followed the main trial,” she said.

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.”

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.

A famous Sicilian chef claimed he was just “researching new flavors” when Italian police arrested him on suspicion of drug dealing after finding cannabis in his home, local reports said Saturday.

Carmelo Chiaramonte had a pair of 6 ½-foot tall marijuana plants and 35 ounces of Indian hemp inside his home in the village of Tracastagni, at the foot of Mount Etna near Catania, BBC News reported, citing local media.

Police said they also found cannabis-infused wine, olives, coffee and tuna inside his home, the Italian daily La Sicilia reported.

He has been released from police custody pending his trial, the paper reported.
