Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Police officers were shocked when a young boy pulled out a loaded gun from his toy box, according to police in Florida.

Boynton Beach police said that they have arrested 34-year-old Rosalyn Faniel, after being accused of keeping a loaded gun within reach of her 3-year-old son.

According to the criminal complaint, a neighbor called police to report that a man was selling drugs all night, and numerous drug addicts were going in and out of Faniel's apartment.

Police officers who arrived at the scene, began questioning Faniel about the drug sales. She denied the allegations.

At some point, Faniel's 3-year-old son dragged a toy box and pulled out a loaded gun in front of the police officers. One of the officers quickly grabbed the gun.

Police then looked around the house, and found a scale and six small plastic bags containing Oxycodone on top of a refrigerator.

Faniel said that she did not know how the gun and the drugs ended up in her apartment.

She has been charged with one count of child neglect.

*--------------- Holy guacamole! ---------------*

It takes a lot of patience to steal $300,000 20 bucks at a time, but a trio of avocado factory workers (of all things) managed to do just that. The suspects, Joseph Valenzuela, 38, Carlos Chavez, 28, and Rahim Leblanc, 30, were employees of the Mission Produce ripening plant in Ventura County, CA. Investigators said they believe the suspects were stealing the avocados over the course of several months and selling them on the side for their own profit to unsuspecting customers. Company officials said the trio got the opportunity when they stopped permitting customers from picking up avocado orders, instead delivering them. But some customers continued to travel to the distribution center. The suspects sold the customers the avocados, but then pocketed the cash. Police said the trio sold the avocados, usually about $50 per box, for $20 to keep the unsuspecting customers from asking questions. Investigators believe they were responsible for thousands of illegal transactions. Eventually, it was one of those customers who alerted the company last month something seemed amiss.


*-- Be Careful Who You Have a Threesome With --*

According to police in Brooklyn, New York, officers responded to a 911 call of a man who was injured and bleeding heavily. Officers found 20-year-old Manos Ikonomidis dead. He suffered three stab wounds in the chest and back. A resident in the building said that there was a lot of noise coming from one apartment throughout the night, where Ikonomidis allegedly had a consensual threesome with 21-year-old Jack Doherty and a 21-year-old woman. According to witnesses, the woman became upset after realizing that Ikonomidis had recorded the threesome. Doherty drove the woman back to her Staten Island home, while Ikonomidis stayed in the apartment, where three people had sex. Meanwhile, the woman contacted her boyfriend, who was not involved in the threesome, and alleged that she was raped by Ikonomidis. The boyfriend and two other men went to the apartment and confronted Ikonomidis. He was beaten and stabbed as he tried to run from the apartment. Surveillance cameras showed two white men and a black man running after Ikonomidis with baseball bats. Ikonomidis managed to go to a neighbor's house and ask for help before he collapsed and died.

If it had been a woman in an abusive relationship there would be a hue and cry over this cruel and unusual punishment.
[The story never said exactly why the man and his wife were fighting. Maybe she's a lousy cook.]

If you rob a bank just to get away from your wife, is being sent home cruel and unusual punishment?
[Maybe cruel, but not unusual.]

If that guy who robbed a bank just to get away from his wife ends up beating the shit out of her because he was sentenced to house arrest, the judge who gave him that sentence could be in trouble. I wonder how that would work out legally?
