Woman Steals Over 700 Pairs of Panties from Victoria’s Secret
A woman pilfered 785 pairs of panties at the Victoria’s Secret at Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta . The suspected thief put the panties in three shopping bags in a raid on the store lasting two hours.

Man Tries to Pay Speeding Ticket with a Wooden Check
Jared Brokaw got pulled over in Baker County, Oregon, going about 90 mph in a 65 zone. He was slapped with a hefty $472 ticket for speeding. Brokaw decided to protest, not by refusing to pay the fine, but in using an unlikely form of payment. He took a piece of flat wood and wrote on it, as if it was a check payable to the Baker City Justice Court in the amount of $472. He boxed the board up and sent it via FedEx to Baker County. Last year Brokaw received a notice from the state of Utah that his driver’s license was about to expire, but the state wouldn’t reissue it. That’s because Utah knew about Brokaw’s unpaid fine in Oregon, thanks to the Driver License Compact. Brokaw has also spent roughly $15,000 in legal fees so far fighting this, he said, and there’s no victory in sight. Get the full story here.
