One of Rafael Pedroza’s earliest acting credits was a burglar on the Colombian soap opera Me Amaras Bajo La Lluvia (or, in English, You Loved Me in The Rain). Now he’s a suspect in a real life robbery in Miami-Dade.

Sunny Isles Beach Police are on the hunt for Pedroza and fellow Colombian actor Farid Duque. They believe the pair pulled off a June 12 heist at an apartment on the 19300 block of Collins Avenue. The duo is believed to have stolen more than $20,000 in goods.

Brian Krebs, 42  — the real-life inspiration for Steve Stifler, the rowdiest, drunkest, most upsettingly bro-ish film character since Bluto Blutarsky; the man American Pie screenwriter Adam Herz reportedly based the famed bro-mancer on — was convicted last Wednesday of second-degree murder, ending an ordeal that had stretched on for more than five years.

Terrance West, a running back currently with the Baltimore Ravens, was visiting the Metropole, a South Beach hotel infamous for hosting the second season of The Jersey Shore, on February 27 with a friend. The pair chatted up two women but then parted ways.

The suit claims the women then went to the hotel’s front desk and asked for a key to West’s room. Amazingly, the staffer complied. The woman were given a key and led to the room by a bellman and escort. Once inside, they swiped two Rolex watches worth almost $50,000 and made off.

An hour later he was robbed again. reading from the Voice Media Empire: Kazama, who’s both an actor and a stuntman on big-budget blockbusters, so freaked out tourists visiting some scenic cliff dwellings that the cops were called. He got away from them then, but not after a car crash that was allegedly intoxicating — in a bad way. Westword has the story. reading from the Voice Media Empire: Wyatt and his family starred in American Guns, a successful Discovery Channel program that was canceled after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary made a show celebrating weaponry politically incorrect. After that, the feds moved in, and after an investigation that’s taken years, they’ve lowered the boom. Westword has the story.

It’s a sensational story.

A knife reportedly found at O.J. Simpson’s former Brentwood home was allegedly kept by a Los Angeles Police Department officer for years, until he recently reached out to a fellow cop to get the departmental record number on the Nicole Brown Simpson murder case so he could have it engraved on a frame for the weapon.

The LAPD today said it was testing the knife for any possible links to the 1994 stabbing murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. The case is still open and unsolved.

It seems doubtful to us that the knife was used in the murders.
