    Weird but true stories

    WEIRD BUT TRUE
    By LUKAS I. ALPERT, Wire Services

    April 5, 2008 -- Police in Lewiston, Maine, are searching for a shoplifter who stuffed a guitar down his pants and walked out.

    Oddly, it's not the first time the store has been victimized like that. In 2006, another crook did the same thing.



    *****
    A Greenville, SC, woman is suing Victoria's Secret for selling her a bra that "malfunctioned" and cut her breast.

    Jessica Lang claims the bra was "negligently and carelessly manufactured," making it "unsafe."

    The company counters that Lang's injuries were the result of her "carelessness and recklessness."


    *****
    A Florida marina booted a fishing-boat charter service that offered topless women as mates.

    Smokin' Em Charters offered the service for bachelor parties.

    "They're going to spend more money in a strip club, which isn't as classy as what we do," said company owner Kathi Coombes.


    *****
    A Washington, DC, family found an 18-year-old blond stranger sleeping in one of their beds.

    When they woke up the young woman, she told them a friend named Jeremy left her there and said it would be OK to sleep there. But the family didn't know a "Jeremy."

    Nothing was taken from the home, so the woman was just given a trespassing summons.

    Is that a guitar in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

    Not Ready for Prime Time: Robber Adam Grennan, 39, did not make it out of the Mt. Washington Bank in Dorchester, Mass., in December. So intent was he in not appearing nervous that he waited patiently in line, eyes straight ahead, until the time came to hand the teller his holdup note. He did not notice that a uniformed Boston police officer, working security, had slipped quietly behind him in line, and he arrested Grennan immediately as Grennan was quietly demanding large bills and "no funny money." [Boston Globe, 1-1-08]
