80-year-old Villager in safe place as Hurricane Irma makes arrival in Florida

The Villages, Florida is located 60 miles northwest of Orlando.

A 80-year-old Villager is lodged in a safe place as Hurricane Irma makes her arrival in Florida.

Richard Neil Hendricks was arrested Wednesday on a warrant charging him with failure to appear on a charge of grand theft.

He is being held without bond at the Lake County Jail.

Hendricks has spent the summer trying to stay one step ahead of the law.

In July, he was arrested on a warrant at a Burger King in Daytona Beach. Later that same month he was arrested after paying an unwanted visit in his golf cart to the Waterfront Inn at Lake Sumter Landing.

Thieves Steal ATM With Forklift in Daring Arkansas Heist

It’s a lot harder to “take the money and run” when the cash you want is trapped inside an ATM. But some daring thieves in Arkansas recently used a forklift in their effort to do just that.

The thieves crashed an enormous CAT forklift into the drive-thru portion of a bank on Wednesday, August 16th, and made away with an ATM. And police now believe that these criminals might have some ties to the construction industry. I wonder what gave them that idea.

The thieves hit the First Service Bank in Conway, Arkansas around 3:30am local time on Wednesday morning. The Conway Police Department posted the video to Facebook, captured from the bank’s CCTV cameras, and are asking the public for help in identifying the perpetrators. You can’t clearly see any people in the video, so they’re asking people to help identify the forklift.

Even if you make off with an ATM, it can be incredibly hard to crack them open. But given the brute force already demonstrated by these criminals, something tells me they’re going to try and find a way with something big and menacing.

But a warning for anyone who thinks this might be a good idea for them: More and more ATMs have GPS tracking. So even if you make away with the machine, you might have the police on your tail a lot sooner than you’d like.

If you have any information about the theft, the Conway Police are asking the public to call 501-450-6130.

Winnipeg Police Service Looking at Smaller Helicopters

The Winnipeg Police Service may have to downsize to a smaller helicopter due to budget constraints.  The Manitoba provincial government may not provide as much funding to operate the helicopter as the City of Winnipeg anticipated.

This has caused the City to look for a lighter helicopter that is better on fuel consumption.  The helicopter program will go ahead said mayor Brian Bowman.  “But we will have to reduce the overall budget, in whatever form that takes,” stated Bowman.

Below are some new models that the Police and City are looking at:

 

The Police are hoping the revised budget will at least let them buy a helicopter with an enclosed seating area.  As the temperatures in Winnipeg in winter at 500 meters up could get down to -50 C.
