BMW X-5 to Apple Store: I’m a PC

Footage has emerged from the Temecula, California Apple Store, that was burglarized last week, showing a 2003 BMW X-5 smashing its way through the store’s front gates. One suspect in the burglary, 22-year-old driver Equonne R. Howard, has been arrested, and police remain on the lookout for his accomplice. If only somebody told them that a MacBook Pro loses about 100 percent of its market value after it’s been run over. source

Today in things you literally cannot make up: Kenneth Kahn, better known as Kenny the Clown, unknowingly acquired Steve Jobs’ recently-burgled iPad, and after he used the iPad to buy the song — again, not making this up — “Smooth Criminal,” police showed up. ”If it wasn’t tragic, it would be comical,” Kahn — still not making this up — said. Kahn hasn’t been charged, but his longtime friend Kariem McFarlin, who gave Kahn the iPad as payback for $300 debt he was owed, has.

FBI report: Violent crimes continue sharp decline in 2011

  • 8.6% decline in arson cases in the first half of 2011, according to an FBI report
  • 7.7% decline in robberies in the same period; other metrics also fell source

» A downward trend continues: When the FBI compared the first half of 2010 to the first half of 2011, they found that violent crimes were down in quite a number of categories, including murder, rape and aggrivated assault. Why has crime been in a downward trend? It could be due to “tougher laws, better policing and an aging population.” That’s right, guys: Our cultural old age is (possibly) causing a drop in crime.

Gumby attempted a robbery, you guys. Put away your Etch-A-Sketches and your Stretch Armstrongs, boys and girls. Childhood is over. In the San Diego area, a man dressed in a Gumby costume tried to rob a convenience store; he left with nothing, but there’s a $1,000 reward for info related to his eventual capture. Police are taking the matter seriously, however; we know we wouldn’t be able to do so. source

Hey, suspects who held this bank hostage for hours: Guess what the army of police officers did when they finally caught you. That’s right, they Chased you out of there!
