A man from Pine Bluff, Arkansas, is facing charges after he allegedly stole a woman’s purse out of her car at a gas station, and later tried to use the victim’s credit card to pay his food bill at the restaurant where she worked.

On Sunday, June 17, Flora Lunsford was at a United Filling Station and went inside of the convenience store. She had left her purse unattended and locked in her vehicle. When she returned to her car she noticed that someone had forced the door open and that her handbag and its contents, including her identification and credit cards, was no longer inside.

When the authorities were investigating the robbery they reviewed the video taken from the surveillance camera at the gas station. The footage reportedly showed a car parked in front of the gas pumps that was there before Lunsford had arrived.

A Michigan man attempting to pay a parking ticket with pennies at the District Court in February alleged that he was assaulted by two guards causing him to sustain injuries and defecate in his pants. On Wednesday the man filed a lawsuit against his purported assailants.

Royal Oak resident Anthony Sevy paid a visit to the 44th District Court in order to settle a $10 fee for a parking violation. He wanted to pay the balance using a credit card and he was informed that he would be responsible for an extra $1.75 surcharge fee.

In an action that Sevy’s lawyer dubbed a “symbolic protest,” he decided he would pay the entirety of the fine in rolls of pennies. The clerks were unwilling to accept the coins, and they asked Sevy to leave the premises.

Two men dining at a Waffle House in Louisiana on Saturday allegedly left the restaurant without paying their bill totaling $7.81. Workers at the establishment notified law enforcement reporting the incident, and also disclosed that the men drove off in a U-Haul van.

While police took statements from employees of the restaurant, patrolling officers noticed a U-Haul fitting the description parked in the lot of a hotel in the vicinity. As they approached the van the officers immediately apprehended the driver, California resident Stayshawn D. Stephens. The passenger, identified as Richard A. Brown, of Indiana, tried to escape into the forest on foot, but a K-9 officer exposed his whereabouts and he was taken into custody.

They also discovered fake ID’s, credit cards, and a bill from a Waffle House for $7.41.
