Crimes in Canada are really getting out of hand these days. Two drunken University of Victoria students were heading home one night when they saw an effervescent chip package tempting them from an open garage. The hard to obtain chips, which are from the soon-to-be closed Zellers, were just too hard to pass up so the ladies decided to swipe them.
Awoken by her yippy Chihuahua, the homeowner alerted the authorities and the so-called chip bandits were discovered and arrested on Tuesday. They are now being charged with breaking and entering.
Investigators discovered the chips close to the crime scene.
“Apparently the chips had been accessed and there had been some illicit chip tastings,” said Sgt. Dean Jantzen at a press conference. “These are first time chip offenders” he said trying to stifle a laugh.
CTV reported on the incident with the most serious tone they could muster. While I think the charges are a little steep for something so silly, all I can think about is how I have to get my hands on some Zellers brand BBQ chips.
This video is proof that everyone needs a surveillance camera.
Less than an hour after a UPS delivered a package to this person, a kid stole it. Luckily enough, there’s video footage of the culprit.
With Inner Circle’s “Bad Boys” playing in the background, you know this kid is gonna get it good from the POPO.
My Chemical Romance has fired their drummer Michael Pedicone for stealing from the band. TMZ reports Pedicone was found red handed.
In a statement on their website the band explained, ”He was caught red handed stealing from the band and confessed to police after our show [Thursday] night in Auburn, Washington.”
MCR added — “The band has no intention of pressing charges or taking this matter any further than we have to. We just want him out of our lives.”
Michael posted on Twitter, ”What happened is more complicated than it sounds but I did make a mistake. It was never my intention to hurt this band or all of you.”
We are curious what he stole. Any ideas?
This is not good for Lady Gaga. Gaga was in Japan over the weekend peforming at an MTV Japan benefit relief concert. Soon after the tragedy in March, she started selling selling bracelets she designed with the words “We Pray for Japan” on them.
Each bracelet cost $5, with a pledge that all proceeds would go to relief efforts. However, a lawsuit alleges the money hasn’t been donated to the charity.
The complaint says that Gaga kept part of the $5 that every customer paid for a wristband and inflated shipping charges so she could pocket more. She then counted even the money she allegedly pocketed in her donation figures, artificially inflating donation numbers, in order to make more money, the suit charged. The complaint was made by the reputable firm 1-800-LAW-FIRM.
Good luck Gaga – we don’t trust ambulance chasers like 1-800-LAW-FIRM. This is all bull sh*t!
To plea bargain or not to plea bargain – that is the question Lindsay Lohan seems to have been wrestling with over the past couple weeks, and has finally come up with a decision. Let’s pray it’s the right one!
According to Perez Hilton, Lohan has decided not to take the plea bargain Judge Schwartz offered, concerning her felony grand theft case.
TMZ reports that Lindsay met lawyer, Shawn Holley, on Tuesday afternoon to discuss her options, but is standing firm on her claim of innocence and has decided to go to trial where she will face the “tough but fair,” Judge Sautner.
While Lohan might think this is a good idea, we hope she knows a storm is brewing and it won’t go down all-too quietly! According to TMZ, prosecutor Danette Meyers will be claiming that Lohan’s behaviour on probation has been “unsatisfactory” and that Lohan has a history of stealing, and will ask for six months in jail.
“Meyers will allege Lindsay has a history of stealing – a $12,000 mink coat in 2008, a $400,000 necklace in 2009, and a $35,000 Rolex in 2010,” claims TMZ.
We wish you the best of luck Lindsay! With all the evidence against you, you just might need all the luck you can get!
Lohan is set to go to trial next month.
