Weird Criminal Law Stories #495:Big Buy & Bust

CALIFORNIA: Buy and bust? A man who chatted up a group he met in a hotel hot tub is now in real hot water Andrew Harris asked the woman and two men what had brought them to the Courtyard by Marriott in Mission Valley, police say. When they joked they were homeless after their meth lab exploded Harris offered to sell them cocaine and LSD, and the guests, actually narcotics detectives, set up a buy-and- bust. Yes, Harris was busted.


CANADA: BANG! A police dog accidentally fired a gun while in hot pursuit of two criminals. The canine officer tracked the assault suspects to a grocery store parking lot in Alberta, where the doggie discovered a gun one of the men had tossed into a bush. The K-9 officer accidentally discharged the weapon while retrieving it. We learn that no one was hurt.


CHINA: Fake Robbery? It has been reported that a Chinese man so fed up with handing his paycheck directly over to his wife every payday that he faked a robbery to keep it. The husband, known as Cai, told Hangzhou police authorities he had been robbed while riding his electric scooter. However, after police reviewed surveillance video at the alleged location, the man admitted making up the stickup to keep his pay.


CHINA: Dancing on the ceiling?  A man is facing six months in jail after he climbed on top of his car – while it was still moving. The man was caught on camera standing on the white car’s roof and waving his arms around as he drove through Bengou City. At one point, it appears the man could be seen sitting in the sun roof and steering with his feet. When he saw traffic police he jumped back into the driver’s seat and tried to flee but was caught when he drove onto a dead-end street.


FLORIDA: Seems she was the biggest demon. We have learned that a self- proclaimed Florida psychic who charged an elderly woman more than $3.5 million for exorcisms and “spiritual cleansing” has pleaded guilty to tax evasion. Sally Johnson, 41, made this money between 2007 and 2014 by promising to rid the wealthy Massachusetts woman of demons.
