After a string of burglaries beginning in March took place while the alleged victims were at funerals the authorities believe they have located and arrested the man responsible for the break-ins.

On March 7 a West Los Angeles resident was attending a funeral during the time that their home was being burglarized. Though the man who allegedly committed the offense was seen while in the act of stealing from the home they were unable to positively identify him.

A second burglary took place in Los Angeles on March 11 just after 2:00 p.m. while the occupants were also at a funeral. A man approached the home and rang the doorbell which activated a home security camera located inside of it. The suspect was caught on video while at the door and when no one answered he reportedly went to the back door of the home and tried to enter, but he was unable to get inside. He allegedly returned to the front of the house and kicked open the garage door which had an entrance to the residence, but the alarm system in place deterred him from pursuing the event further. The man, whose Mercedes was seen parked in the driveway of the home, pulled away but not before a detailed description of his automobile was uncovered.

A housekeeper in Tennessee has been charged with theft for accusations that she has stolen items from two of the homes that she was hired to clean.

36-year-old Cynthia Ward is the proprietor of the Chapmansboro based cleaning service Cynthia’s Housekeeping.

In December 2017 Ward cleaned the condominium of a client who returned home to find an Ipad, some gift cards, cash, a designer label planner, and a camera missing from their residence. The owner notified the authorities and reported the $4,400 worth of absent possessions, many of which were baby shower gifts she had received.

A Councilman from Plainfield, New Jersey was arrested on December 9 for allegations that he was driving under the influence of alcohol after a series of curious events took place during and after he struck a tree in front of his home.

As reported by neighbors, a Hyndai Elantra allegedly operated by Councilman Barry Goode was driven into a tree late Friday night. In what was assumed as an attempt to stall the engine Goode put the car into park and held his foot on the gas.

A concerned neighbor tried to assist by opening the door to the driver’s side of the vehicle so that Goode would not become injured. Goode was then purportedly seen falling onto the ground. A neighbor used a cell phone camera to record the Councilman tumbling to the ground, and police later duplicated the footage for their reports.

A man working in an office in La Palma has been accused of tainting a female co-worker’s water bottles, honey jar and computer hardware with his ejaculate. He allegedly continued this behavior over a span of nearly two months. The victim unknowingly ingested the honey on several occasions.

Stevens Millancastro began working with the woman in 2014, and starting in November 2016 he was suspected of masturbating in her office and depositing semen in various locations.

The victim had noticed on two different days that her water bottles had an odd coloration to them and she threw them in the trash. Millancastro has also been accused of putting his sperm inside a jar of honey that the victim kept stored in her office. She ate the polluted honey every other day for nearly two months without realizing it had been tampered with.

Derek Starnes and his wife rented a condominium on Longboat Key, FL through Airbnb based partly on over 40 positive reviews posted on the site regarding the property. A day after checking into the rental Starnes who has a career in IT saw something amiss with one of the smoke detectors. Upon inspection he discovered it was a hidden security camera with a microphone pointed directly at their bed in the master bedroom.

Starnes called the police and they seized all computer equipment capable of storing data. A second camera was discovered in the living room.

The owner of the property, 56-year-old Wayne Natt, was taken into custody and charged with one count of video voyeurism. Natt’s Airbnb listing has been active for two years and police are investigating the possibility of others affected by the alleged breach of privacy. “We don’t know if there are local victims, someone who may have been dating him or a companion that doesn’t realize they are being videotaped, and then we have the other side of who he rented to through Airbnb,” said Lt. Bob Bourque.
