Thief Passes Out Next to a Stolen TV, with a Package of Stolen Bacon in his Pocket
A man arrested on suspicion of burglary over the weekend is accused of only taking two items from a Lincoln home. Police said Justin Morris, 29, was found passed out on the front lawn of a home on the 1600 block of Euclid around 5:30 a.m. Saturday. Next to him, police said, was a 42-inch flat-screen TV; a package of bacon was found in his pocket. About 12 hours later and two blocks from where Morris was found, a woman reported a burglary at her apartment. The only two items taken were a TV and a pound of Farmland thick-cut bacon. Police said Morris was arrested at his home in connection with the burglary and taken to the Lancaster County Jail. Get the full story here.
A Guy Tries to Avoid Paying For His Baby by Sending a Look-Alike to His Paternity Test
A 25-year-old guy named Thomas Kenny in Birmingham, England was in a relationship back in December of 2012, but he cheated on his girlfriend, and got another woman pregnant. Then he refused to admit it was his. So she went to court and got a judge to order a paternity test in June of 2013. But Thomas had a plan. When it was time to go to the clinic, he found a guy who looked like him, and talked that guy into going and giving a DNA sample instead. And his plan worked, for a while. The woman finally figured it out last summer and went to the cops. Thomas was arrested, and he was in court last week. He was found guilty of conspiracy to defraud and got six months in jail, which will be suspended as long as he pays child support, plus about $2,200 in fines and court costs. Get the full story here.
