Christina Hines, 30, of Florida, stopped by a gas station in April to get gas and some snacks. She accidentally left a $50 bill on the counter when she left. The clerk noticed it, but she was already out the door. Good thing a Seminole County sheriff's deputy was passing through! He said he would go after her and give the money back to her, but now she was on the road.
The deputy took off in pursuit. He caught up to her, but she didn't pull over, so he "ran her plates". The officer found out she had a suspended license, so he put his lights and siren on. That is when Hines put the gas on. What had started out as a good deed now turned into a high-speed pursuit.
The police set up spike strips but she kept on going, even eluding the squad cars for a time. They soon got her and found heroin in the car. She was charged with resisting an officer and heroin possession. If criminals do not want to draw attention to themselves, they have to stop leaving money behind!
In Pennsylvania, a mining company had to postpone operations due to a bomb threat that was called in from a nearby store pay phone. That cost the company $100,000. The police looked at the surveillance video and spotted John Perkins, a miner that worked for the mining company. After questioning, it was found out that Perkins did make the call. Why? Because he couldn't find a babysitter for his 8-year-old daughter that day. What?!! Well, now he's fired from his job, in jail, and he still hasn't gotten a babysitter for his daughter! Here's a thought... why not just call in sick like most people would do?!
