KENOSHA, WI - Zachary Olsen, 20, had a busy day on August 19. He left the scene of an accident after crashing into a parked car. Police located Olsen shortly thereafter. With fumbled words, he told the officers that he had smoked marijuana a few hours earlier. He was given a blood test, briefly jailed, then released. In the afternoon, Olsen grabbed a woman's car keys and was told by police to give them back and to stay away from her house. He agreed. After the police left, Olsen snatched the woman's keys again, punched her, and left. He returned that evening and started another fight but left before the police arrived. But Olsen couldn't stay away. He came back shortly before midnight and climbed through the woman's window to start more trouble. This time the police were waiting nearby and with no more "get out of jail free cards", Olsen was arrested! He used up all his second chances within one 24-hour grace period!

POLK COUNTY, FL - Logan Hale, 21, burglarized a house on August 3, pawned all the stolen goods, and got away. Even though the sheriff's office knew him well since he had been sent to the Polk County jail on 5 separate occasions, Hale could not be found. On August 14, Sheriff Grady Judd posted Hale's picture on Facebook, along with information about Hale. With a user name of "Logan Finallyfree Hale", the crook responded on the sheriff's Facebook page, saying, "Lol can't hurt much now." The sheriff responded by saying he (Hale) should just turn himself in. Not able to stay silent, Hale posted on August 18, "HELLO, here i am...", and taunted the sheriff with other posts. Sheriff Judd, not taking kindly to the jabs, offered a $500 reward for any information leading to Hale's arrest. Judd also did his own taunting, saying that Hale would have "to change your FB name from 'Finallyfree' to 'Back In Jail' " and that he (Judd) would give him a free ride to jail. Two days later, on August 20, officers spotted Hale, who was arrested and sent to jail for a 6th time! Lauren Hemness and Julianna Lawrence, who were protecting Hale, were also arrested. The last Facebook post shows Hale in handcuffs with a poem by the sheriff... "Logan Hale, you are on your way to jail. Your attempts to hide were to no avail. Epic fail."
PALM BEACH, FL - Candace McCray, 36, worked as a nurse's aide at an assisted-living facility in Palm Beach Gardens last year. She stole a large amount of jewelry from one of her female patients in January 2014 and pawned most of it, but wasn't caught. The patient recognized McCray at a rehab center where she had an appointment this summer. McCray was wearing a pair of her diamond earrings stolen over a year ago! The patient called police and they in turn called McCray and asked her to come in for an interview. Even though the police told McCray it was about the stolen jewelry, she showed up wearing the same diamond earrings in question. She was arrested after further questioning.
