    PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - A North Fort Myers woman climbed into the ceiling of a Big Lots store in Port Charlotte Thursday night to avoid a shoplifting arrest.

Charlotte County deputies said the manger tried to enter the restroom to check on Perkins, but several trash cans were positioned to barricade the door. She did...

    MIDDLETOWN, N.J. - A shoplifting incident took a troubling turn recently in New Jersey. Police said three women participated in the crime and they made a mistake that helped authorities track two of them down. One of them walked in with a child and left them in the store after committing the crime. The owner of Bambi Baby shared his surveillance video with WCBS, which showed the three women as they walked in with three children just after 5 p.m. Friday. One of the women spent several minutes attempting to collapse a stroller before leaving with it, but she accidentally...

    MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ohio (WSVN) — An Ohio woman has been arrested for the third time in just six months. According to Fox 8, 27-year-old Alyssa Zebrasky was arrested on an out-of-county warrant, Tuesday. Zebrasky is no stranger to the law. She was arrested in December after she was accused of shoplifting and drug possession. During that arrest, officers discovered that she had a warrant for failing to appear on a separate charge in another city.

    Boston, MA – When Suffolk County’s district attorney-elect Rachel Rollins takes over the prosecutor’s office in January, criminals will no longer need to worry about being held accountable for many offenses – including resisting arrest. “It’s a recipe for disaster,” veteran Boston defense attorney, Robert Griffin, told the Boston Globe. “The problem is the message that you’re sending,” Griffin stressed. “You’re encouraging bad behavior. You’re telling people that we’re not going to do anything about this.” Rollins, 47, has been widely hailed – and widely criticized – for her well-publicized “Charges to be Declined” list, which she has featured on...

    A start-up uses visual tracking and behavioral data to operate a new San Francisco market, which lets shoppers walk out unimpeded. And sometimes mischarged. One recent afternoon, the city’s newest grocery market was trying to figure out whether I would buy, steal or leave behind a bag of white Cheddar popcorn — and so was I. On its side: 27 cameras along the ceiling and a wealth of behavioral data. On my side: crippling indecision. Last week, San Francisco got its first completely automated cashierless store, Standard Market. Shoppers who have downloaded the store’s app can go into the 1,900-square-foot...

    The Atlanta Chief of Police said her officers will no longer respond to shoplifting calls at stores in Buckhead. Erika Shields said staff shortages, in excess of 300 officers, has forced her to reevaluate how to deploy officers. In the affluent section north of downtown, Shields said, the APD Zone Two officers frequently get calls from merchants to do a report on a shoplifter who has been caught by store security. After filling out the paperwork, the officer then must arrange a transport to the Atlanta City Jail in downtown. All that can take up to an hour and a...

I know there is a lot of racism out there, but I have never been faced with it up close."

    Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Basketball dad LaVar Ball says he would've thanked President Donald Trump for getting his son out of China if he had used Air Force One. Ball was on CNN Monday night when he made the claim. After several back-and-forths, Ball refused to thank President Trump for his help in getting LiAngelo Ball and his UCLA Bruins basketball teammates out of China. Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were questioned about allegedly stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store earlier this month in Hangzhou. They were later arrested and released on bail. Trump said he coordinated with...

    Thanksgiving is around the corner, but LaVar Ball isn't exactly in the thankful spirit. The outspoken basketball dad sat down with Chris Cuomo on “CNN Tonight” Monday evening to discuss his son LiAngelo’s recent shoplifting arrest in China and LaVar’s insistence that he does not need to thank Donald Trump for his apparent help in freeing LiAngelo and the other two UCLA player’s arrested. “It just doesn't make any sense why you didn't thank him,” Cuomo said. “Did you thank the doctor for bringing you into this world?” Ball asked. Cumo chuckled, unable to respond. “Well you better go back...

    President Trump sat down in Asia with the president of China and devoted valuable time to springing from jail three UCLA basketball players who decided to try to steal stuff from a Louis Vuitton store in China. The players themselves thanked Trump, but one of their fathers, LaVar Ball, decided to use the moment to diss the man who kept his son out of Chinese prison, where one can only imagine the conditions. “Who?” Ball told ESPN when asked about Trump’s assistance. “Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.” Trump, not suprisingly,...
  • Trump’s Response to LaVar Ball — Most Unpresidential

    National Review ^ | 11/19/2017 | Katherine Timpf
    The father of one of the basketball players who had been facing shoplifting charges in China downplayed President Trump’s role in having him released — and Trump’s response may be one of the worst I’ve seen yet. Now, to be fair, I certainly do understand why President Trump would have been upset by this. If you want to argue that LiAngelo Ball’s father, LaVar, should have shown gratitude instead of dismissal of President Trump’s efforts, then I’d say that’s a fine argument. What’s not fine, however, is this: Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved...

    LaVar Ball, patriarch of the famed basketball family, has denied that President Donald Trump helped his son, UCLA freshman basketballer LiAngelo Ball, get out of potential shoplifting charges in China. Speaking to ESPN, LaVar Ball said “everyone” wanted to make it seem like Trump helped the family, and noted that people try to “make a big deal out of nothing.” Ball’s basketball family has a reality show, Ball in the Family, that airs on Facebook, and his brash style is regularly parodied by Kenan Thompson on Saturday Night Live. The family includes Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball; UCLA...

    LaVar Ball, whose son was one of the three UCLA basketball players detained in China on shoplifting charges last week, said “who?” when asked about President Trump’s role in getting the players released. "Who?" Ball told ESPN when asked about Trump's role. "What was he over there for? Don't tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out." Ball, the CEO of the sports apparel company Big Baller Brand, downplayed Trump’s role in securing his son LiAngelo Ball’s release. His son, along with two other players, was arrested and accused of shoplifting from a Louis...

    SHREVEPORT, LA (KTAL) – A woman in Louisiana is putting a whole new meaning to “holding your liquor” after video shows her shoplifting multiple bottles of alcohol. In a video released by the Shreveport Police Department, the woman can be seen grabbing several bottles of alcohol while walking down the aisles. Initially she places the bottles into her bag, but then is later emboldened to stuff a couple down her pants, and more into her shirt. The woman then approaches the counter where she places a random bottle on the counter before calmly exiting the store. Police say the incident...

    A 70-year-old Army veteran has been fired from a Houston-area Home Depot after trying to stop suspected shoplifters from taking thousands of dollars' worth of merchandise. KTRK-TV in Houston reports that Jim Tinney says he was fired last month from the store in Pearland. Tinney says he was trained to not confront shoplifters and knows he violated company policy, but that his military training just kicked in when he noticed three men attempting to steal tools. He threw a paint roller extension pole toward the suspects' feet. The men escaped. The Home Depot said in a statement that only trained...
