    COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- A 31-year-old Colorado man says Walmart fired him for doing his job. Ramon asked his last name and hometown not be used, not because he fears retaliation from Walmart, but because he's worried about the countless shoplifters he helped the Commerce City Police Department arrest as an asset protection associate for the nation's largest retailer. Ramon was fired Nov. 10 after subduing a store burglary suspect four days earlier. "All I was trying to do was do my job, the best I could," Ramon said. Surveillance video shows Ramon getting sucker punched in the eye by...

    TMZ ^ | October 5, 2017
    Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock has a younger brother who has a warrant out for his arrest, albeit for something far less menacing ... TMZ has learned. 57-year-old Bruce Paddock is wanted in L.A. County, according to docs, and it stems from one of his laundry list of violations. Paddock was busted for vandalism in 2014 -- he jacked up a moving company's property. Paddock pled no contest and got 150 hours of community service, but kept trying to get it reduced. When he no-show'd for a 2016 court date, the judge issued the bench warrant. We broke the story...

    When hate crime charges were brought against four suspects accused of kidnapping and torturing a schizophrenic 18-year-old man yesterday, it was not immediately clear if the charges stemmed from the victim’s race or from the fact that he was mentally-challenged. The AP reports today that the four suspects were charged with two separate hate crimes, one based on the victim’s race and the other based on his disability. Lawyers for the four suspects portrayed them as responsible adults and asked a judge to grant them bail so they could return home while they await trial. The Associated Press reports the...

    Mark Plaskett.  Image from krdo.com It was before dawn on Sunday morning , 27 November, 2016, in Fountain, Colorado. Mark Plaskett was wakened by his garage door opening. It was 5 a.m. He grabbed his pistol and a flashlight and responded. Three strange cars were parked in the quiet, residential neighborhood. Plaskett believes that he had forgotten to lock his van.  That is likely how they accessed his garage door opener. As Plaskett entered the street with flashlight and pistol, one of the cars immediately took off.  Plaskett attempted to capture people in the second car, but both the...

    The offices of a Dallas law firm representing a high-profile State Department whistleblower were broken into last weekend. Burglars stole three computers and broke into the firm's file cabinets. But silver bars, video equipment and other valuables were left untouched, according to local Fox affiliate KDFW, which aired security camera footage of the suspected burglars entering and leaving the offices around the time of the incident. The firm Schulman & Mathias represents Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator at the State Department's Office of the Inspector General. In recent weeks, she raised a slew of explosive allegations against the department and...

    Authorities announced a $50,000 reward Wednesday as they renewed their search for an elusive serial killer they say committed at least 12 homicides, 45 rapes and dozens of burglaries across California in the 1970s and 1980s. The case has grown cold for the killer known by at least four nicknames over the decades. He was dubbed the East Area Rapist after his start in Northern California. The Original Night Stalker after a series of Southern California slayings. The Diamond Knot Killer for using the elaborate knot to bind two of his victims. And most recently the Golden State Killer.

    Relatives of a 17-year-old are angry the teenager was shot and killed by a homeowner who police say was protecting her property. The sister of the teen who died identified him as Trevon Johnson. She said he was a student at D.A. Dorsey Technical College. “I don’t care if she have her gun license or any of that. That is way beyond the law… way beyond,” said Johnson’s cousin Nautika Harris. “He was not supposed to die like this. He had a future ahead of him. Trevon had goals… he was a funny guy, very big on education, loved learning.”...

    The Office of the Inspector General of the State Department found in its latest investigation that Clinton aides had “created an appearance of undue influence and favoritism” in a number of cases including that of Ambassador Howard Gutman. The investigation is largely a whitewash. There is no mention of the fact that one whistleblower related to the case, Richard Higbie, had his emails deleted by a hacker. Or that the main whistleblower, Aurelia Fedenisn, was harassed at home and had her law firm burgled.It goes almost without saying that Richard Nixon went down for much less than that.There is also...

    A Winter Park homeowner shot a burglary suspect in the face Thursday afternoon in his driveway and a manhunt continues for two other suspects, according to police. Winter Park police responded to a residential burglary call involving three suspects around 12:30 p.m. on Williams Drive in the affluent Park Grove neighborhood, Sgt. Frank Cowart said. Cowart said the suspect vehicle was backed up in the driveway when the homeowner arrived and confronted the suspects. It's not clear how many shots were fired. Police say it appears at this point that the shooting was justified. The suspects did make entry into...

    One suspect is in custody and two others are still on the loose after a burglary at an Oklahoma City gun range. Early Wednesday morning, police say three juveniles burglarized the H&H Gun Range near I-40 and Meridian. Oklahoma City police were called to the scene after the alarm at H&H Gun Range started going off. When officers arrived, they say they saw the suspects get into a car and drive away. Officers then started chasing the vehicle. A short time later, police say the suspects’ vehicle crashed near I-40 and MacArthur and two of the suspects got away. One...

    Attempted break-ins at odd-numbered houses were not fully investigated by one police force as part of an experiment to save money. Leicestershire Police said the pilot scheme had had no adverse effect on public satisfaction or crime rates. Results of the three-month trial are being evaluated and could see it rolled out throughout the East Midlands. Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Clive Loader said he was unaware of the idea but would have advised against it. Due to cuts in central government funding, the force has cut Ł33.9m - about 17% of the entire budget - over the four years...

    Kenosha homeowner, who happens to coach high school wrestling, reportedly thwarted a burglary attempt last week by hogtying the suspect with a garden hose.

Grover told police that he smashed a vase over the man's head, pushed him back out of the window and then tied him up in the backyard with a garden hose. Police said it turns out the man, 22-year-old Philip Tabili of Kenosha,...

     A young Dallas mother suspicious of activity in her apartment installed a camera, and over the weekend, her fears came true. That camera caught a nighttime intruder in her bedroom stealing as she slept at the Hampton Terrace apartments, where she's lived nearly three years. The intruder stole money, but put some of it back before sneaking out of her apartment the same way he came in. The victim asked that FOX 4 not use her real name due to concerns that the intruder may try to look her up, so we call her Alice.       “I started noticing things coming...

A few days later, the woman discovered that movies were being watched on her Netflix account, which was linked to the stolen TV and Blu-ray, according to the sheriff's office. Using Netflix and IP address information, authorities traced the internet usage to Bobby Alexander of Mariposa, officials said.

    (KUTV) The victims of the so-called "polygamist ninjas" fear retaliation by the sister-wives, the family told 2News in their first interview since the bizarre and traumatic break-in. Raven Blackwing, 22, and Tylynn Southwick, 19, allegedly jimmied the back door of the West Jordan home early in the morning last September. Fiances Jeremy Beck and Elizabeth Griego were sleeping when their friend, who was staying over, heard creaking near the stairs leading to the bedrooms. He saw two masked, hooded women in dark clothing and woke up everyone. Griego yelled for her children and hid them in one room. While the...

    An Arkansas burglary victim's pistol did not fire when he intended it to, because the safety was on, and he did not realize it.   Wayne Murrey, above shows some tactical sense as he cautiously peered through a doorway, exposing little of himself while he looked to determine what was happening.  When he saw that a curtain was disturbed, he realized that someone was trying to break in.   That is when he accessed his firearm.  From katv.com: “I got up, walked over here and I peeked like this, and I see the curtain kind of pulled back a little, so...
