Theft of a $37 Walmart Printer turns into High-Speed Chase
with drugs flying out the window.
A Louisiana couple is in custody following a high speed
police chase over a $37 printer stolen from Walmart. When
the husband saw the police show up and start to approach
their vehicles, he apparently put the pedal to the metal and
fled, almost hitting the officer. From there it was a race
across the city, say cops, which also served as a way for
the couple to start “throwing suspected methamphetamine and
marijuana out of the vehicle.” The suspect’s car was stopped
when officer deployed stop sticks on the highway. The couple
was arrested, and will face charges of aggravated flight
from an officer, resisting by flight, theft of goods under
$500, and obstruction of justice, possession of marijuana
and aggravated assault on a police officer by use of a
Robbery suspect of a Walgreens runs into a Target to shave
off his beard. Following what appeared to be an armed robbery of a
Walgreens store in Fort Wayne, the suspect was noticed a
short time later in a Target store shaving in the Men’s
room. Joshua Dixon had displayed the handgun at the Walgreen
store, got the register cash and fled with over $600. In
what could have been an attempt to change his appearance,
Dixon entered the Target store and went into the men’s room,
shaved and changed his clothes. Changing clothes and shaving
didn’t help Dixon; the Walgreens cashier was focused on the
tattoo on his arm, which a picture of his tattoo was already
in the criminal database due to his prior arrest bookings.

Three arrested in Kansas attempting steal a
semi-truck load of processed beef valued at $83,000.
The trailer was loaded at
the Tyson Processed Meat plant in Kansas, but the thieves
believed they were under surveillance by police and never
returned to pick it up. The indictment alleges that the
three conspired to use the identity of a legitimate trucking
company in Pennsylvania to bid on hauling the load of Kansas
beef to California through a freight broker based in Ohio.
Once the hauling contract was awarded, a man allegedly
fitting the description of one of the suspects but using a
counterfeit California commercial drivers license dropped
off a trailer at the Tyson plant in Holcomb to be loaded.
The indictment charges all three defendants with conspiracy
to commit wire fraud and to steal shipments of freight,
which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

When anyone goes for an interview you’ve got to play to win.
You should not allow: any outside variable, any future
promotion thoughts or promises, your guilt feelings towards
your current employer or boss, your preconceived opinions of
the possible future employer, or any miss-step in the
process on the part of the future employer disrupt or impact
your performance. All interviews have long range
implications on your career. The executives interviewing you
are part of a community and you'll run into them again at
another company. So if you do get involved and go for an
interview, commit yourself all the way and play to win. It
doesn’t mean you’ve got to take the job. It just means you
have to perform at 100%.
