Police: Thief tried to pay waitress using her own stolen card


Authorities say an Arkansas thief got his just deserts when he tried to pay for a meal using the waitress’ stolen credit card.

Police spokesman Lt. David De Foor said in a news release that officers arrested 21-year-old Shamon West on June 19 at Shannon’s Restaurant in Pine Bluff. He says that “having no desire to pay for the fellow’s meal,” waitress Flora Lunsford called to report that the man had tried paying for his meal with her stolen credit card.

De Foor says officers found other items on West that had been in Luns-ford’s purse when it was stolen from her car June 17 at a nearby gas station while she was inside, including her Social Security card and driver’s license.

West was being held at the Jefferson County jail in lieu of $2,840 bond on forgery and theft by receiving charges.

Mass. home getting struck by mystery arrows


A Massachusetts couple wants to know who’s shooting hunting arrows at their house. Accurzio and Loretta Schlafani, both in their 70s, say at least three arrows with razor tips have struck on or near their Worcester home since June 15.

The first arrow remains stuck in their garage roof because they are physically unable to climb up and pull it out. They found a second arrow on their rear deck and a third arrow struck in their backyard.

Loretta Schlafani says she’s concerned because young relatives often visit their home.

The couple reported the mysterious arrows to police, who took one away as evidence. Lt. Sean Murtha called the situation “odd” and says police have not received any other reports of stray arrows.

Naked man arrested in burglary, animal cruelty


A man who ran through a New Hampshire apartment complex terrorizing residents while naked, also threw glass at police officers and beat a dog before being hit with a stun gun and arrested.

The Concord Monitor reported that 28-year-old Irakoze Ildephonse had appeared high on drugs June 20 while he ran through the building banging on doors.

Police say he broke into an apartment that had a golden retriever and then beat and choked the dog. An officer says the dog is expected to recover.

Police say Ildephonse had been throwing broken glass at officers before they hit him with a stun gun and arrested him. He was to be arraigned June 21 on charges of burglary, animal cruelty and indecent exposure.
