SO WHAT?! THAT DOESN’T PROVE ANYTHING!
When someone cut a large hole in a safe in a home in Nixa, Mo., and stole $20,000, suspicion immediately fell on the homeowner’s son, who has a drug problem and owes some people a lot of money. Also, a search of his iPhone revealed he had visited two websites: “Safe-cracking made stupid easy” and “How to figure out the keypad lock combination.”

HEY, BABY, HOW DO YOU LIKE MY RIDE?

APPRECIATE YOU SAVING US, MA’AM:
A woman said that she set fire to hay bales in Half Moon Bay, Calif., to prevent a “zombie apocalypse.” She later set more hay bales on fire to “prevent a cult from committing a massacre.” She is being examined by mental health professionals.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN I LOOK SUSPICIOUS?:
A man walked up to the door of a bank in Hollywood, Fla., intending to rob the place, but employees locked the door before he could get in. This is because he was wearing a ski mask and flannel clothes when the temperatures were in the 90s.
