Babysitter arrested after 9-year-old boy took his younger sister for joyride and crashed car

A woman was arrested after failing to watch two children who were left in her care. Police in South Carolina, said that a mother left her two children with her roommate who agreed to babysit them. However, the children got hold of their babysitter’s car keys and they went out for a joyride while their mother was at work. A police report said a 9-year-old child told officers after the crash that the babysitter told them she was leaving him and his 6-year-old sister unattended to go meet someone. Neither child was hurt. In court, the babysitter said the children took her car keys, adding that she noticed the children were gone when she got out of the shower. Inside the wrecked car, police found hydrocodone pills. The babysitter is jailed on a $16,000 bond, and it’s not known if she has an attorney.  (The Herald)

Husky apprehended after stealing bread from Dollar General

California police shared security camera footage of a Siberian husky that wandered into a Dollar General store and stole a loaf of bread. Employees at the store in Shafter said they were initially amused when the husky wandered into the store Wednesday. “This dog came in and he was really friendly looking around,” Dollar General worker told authorities. The employees jumped into action, however, when the pilfering pooch grabbed a loaf of bread and ran for the door. Security camera footage posted to Facebook by the Shafter Police Department shows a worker named Steven struggling with the dog in the store’s doorway, but the husky escapes with its ill-gotten loaf after a piece of the bag breaks off in Steven’s hand. Police said the female dog, and a male husky accomplice, were captured the next day when they returned to scene of the crime.“They end up getting greedy, which is why they get caught, and unfortunately in this case, the culprits were apprehended,” said Nick Riddick, the police department’s Animal Control Manager. “No charges will be filed against these bandits,” police said on Facebook. Riddick said the dogs, which did not have tags or microchips, will be put up for adoption if they are not claimed by their owners. (KGET TV)


Woman trying to buy birthday card trapped inside CVS

A woman trying to buy a birthday card called police when she was accidentally barricaded inside a CVS store in central Florida. Lillian Rimmel stopped at a Titusville CVS at 9:50 p.m. Friday to make a quick purchase, unaware the store was about to close. As she walked toward the check out just after 10 p.m., she triggered a motion sensor alarm and found herself barricaded inside. A metal security gate blocked the front entrance as sirens blared. She was worried someone would mistake her for a burglar, so she stood in front of a security camera and dialed police. They contacted the manager to come and let her out. The woman said there was no announcement warning the store was closing. She said she didn’t know how store employees could have missed her. She is 6-feet-tall and said she could look over all of the partitions. Police responded to her 911 call and waited for the manager to arrive. They helped calm Rimmel down and said there was no wrongdoing by anyone. A store manager said she couldn’t comment, but CVS spokesman Mike DeAngelis said in an email Monday that the company “sincerely apologizes” for the incident. (Florida Today)


What’s your past salary? Lawmakers want to ban the question

An awkward job interview question — how much did you make at your last job? — is getting banned in some parts of the country. Massachusetts, New York City and Philadelphia have passed laws that bar employers from asking applicants about their salary history. And several states, including California, Mississippi and Pennsylvania, have proposed similar legislation this year. Supporters say the bans are one way to help close the wage gap between men and women. Some business advocates, however, say the bans hurt companies that use salary histories to help them set wages. Either way, employment lawyers say the bans may spread. Other bans this year include at least 21 states and Washington, D.C., have proposed legislation that would prohibit salary history questions, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The states are: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Maryland, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia, Vermont and Washington.
