Police believe the accused marijuana swindler looked nothing like this

​Police aren’t providing his name, apparently to save his relatives, his entire line of ancestors, and everyone who smokes pot from embarrassment. But according to Chris Aston, police chief of Johnston, South Carolina, a man called the other day to complain he got ripped off in a drug deal.

The man said he paid for an unspecified amount of weed. But the dealer never delivered, nor would he refund the price of purchase. Apparently believing that the Better Business Bureau lacked the clout to deal with this kind of situation, the man called the cops instead.

We’re not sure if police decided to bust him, or invoked the mercy statute for the helplessly pathetic. Details are sketchy. But we are sure the man has a bright future ahead — perhaps in the lucrative swampland real estate field, or more likely in Congress.

Darrin Daily used a 14-year-old for bondage and sex with a dog

UPDATE: Darrin Daily advertised underaged sex on Craigslist. See update after the jump…

Darrin Daily lived with his two young daughters in an apartment Newberg, Oregon. His hobbies included smoking pot, unemployment — and if you believe police — have group sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Cops were first alerted to the pedophile after a 15-year-old girl told them Daily gave her marijuana and alcohol, then bedded her. Detectives searched his computer and found photos of a 4-year-old who apparently was also abused. The also found images of a 14-year-old girl, and this is where the story gets really depraved.

The girl told police she’d been having sex with Daily on weekends since February. Their trysts involved bondage and a dog named Buddy. But somewhere along the line, Daily decided to place ads on Craigslist inviting others to join the fun… 

Ubalda Olvera, the Michael Kors of auto theft

​Give Ubalda Olvera credit for a little criminal foresight. When he decided to steal a Cadillac in Marquez, Texas, he didn’t want witnesses to identify him by his clothes. So he decided to do it naked.

The downside is that prowling around nude tends to get noticed. Soon police were after him in a high-speed chase that produced some impressive stats. Miles traveled: 60. Counties covered: 3. Speeds reached: over 100 mph.

Alas, our hero crashed in a ditch in College Station, Texas, then tried to hail a ride with another motorist before he was arrested. Police believe he was either under the influence of PCP, or pioneering a bold new fashion sense in the field of auto theft.

Anthony Lawrence and Shamel King’s crack crew pulled in $500,000 by suing New York 20 times

​New York City gets sued 200 times a week. And since its payouts this year have already reached $637 million as of July 1, it’s naturally reticent about going to trial. But it appears the city has become so zealous in settling at all costs that pretty much anyone can game the system. Even if you’re a notorious Brooklyn crack gang, which has pulled in $500,000 by repeatedly suing New York…

There are stupid criminals, and there are really stupid criminals. And then there are our Stupid Criminals of the Week.
5. Christina Galipeau and Eugene Jackson: We all crave McDonald’s french fries from time to time — it’s pretty clear evolution wants it that way — but Christina Galipeau, 22, and Eugene Jackson, 33, took things a bit far during their recent stop at a Massachusetts McD’s.
After receiving the wrong size of fries — not the wrong style burger or the wrong flavor of shake, but the wrong size of fries — the two began hurling change at the offending cashier and another employee, apparently a 54-year-old woman, as if she didn’t already feel bad that she was 54 and working at McDonald’s. Since change is not good for accuracy, police say Jackson then picked up a cone from the recently washed floor and chucked it across the counter — maybe because of the fries thing, or maybe because he once got rejected from working at McDonald’s. We’re guessing the latter.

A former boyfriend in charged with kidnapping and murdering Keighley Alyea

Keighley Alyea, 18 — a pretty but troubled, Overland Park, Kansas girl — disappeared on September 29. Her body was found on Monday lying in a field on a farm across the border in Missouri, near Harrisonville. Keighley’s former boyfriend, Dustin Hilt, his cousin, Joseph Mattox, and best friend Gerald Calbeck, each 18-years-old, have been charged with first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery in connection with her disappearance and death.

Although the cops have not released much information about the case, Keighley’s uncle, Eddie Frentrop, said that investigators told the girl’s father that she allegedly had been attacked in Overland Park, abducted, and driven to Missouri by Hilt and the other two young, ahem, men, if they can be called men.  Somehow, cowardly punks seems a more fitting description.  Nonetheless, sometime after crossing the state line, Keighley woke up.

“Somewhere along the drive out east of Harrisonville, she regained consciousness,” Frentrop said.  “At that time, they had the option to do the right thing, and they chose to finish killing her…”

Actress and model Felicia Tang was tortured to death

​On September 11, police arrived at the Monrovia, California apartment of Brian Lee Randone and Felicia Tang. He was a former preacher turned successful communications salesman who’d once appeared on the reality show The Sexiest Bachelor in America. She was a model and soft-core porn actress who’d made appearances in moves such as Rush Hour 2 and “The Fast And The Furious. And she was near death.

Randone told police that he tried to restrain Tang — who’s real name was Felicia Lee — after she went out of control during a drug overdose. The evidence at the scene painted an entirely different story. Randone has since been charged with beating Tang with a metal object, then slowly suffocating her to death. The slaying was so vicious police added torture charges…

Pagans’ territory sprawls from Ohio to New York

​Some 50 members of the Pagans Motorcycle Club have been arrested in a plot to intimidate, beat, and murder their way to becoming the premier biker gang on the East Coast. According to the indictment, they’ve been on a campaign to crush smaller clubs or force them into allegiance to take on their rivals the Hells Angels and the Outlaws.

The charges against the gang are a smorgasbord of major felonies, including kidnapping, robbery, extortion,
and conspiracy to commit murder. When rival bikers entered their territory — which sprawls from Ohio to New York — they were “intimidated, threatened, attacked, beat, robbed
and sometimes killed them,” says the indictment.

In one case, Vice President Jesse Moore ordered the kidnapping and assault of a Road Disciples member to pressure the gang into kicking back extortion payments. Moore’s also accused of conspiring with a prison guard to kill and inmate suspected of ratting on the gang…

William Inmon confessed out of the blue

​It’s a staple of bad detective drama. The hero cop arrives in town to investigate the slaying, only to be thwarted by the crooked and/or egotistical sheriff who doesn’t want anyone meddling in his jurisdiction.

But William Inmon thought it was a staple of real life too. So he walked into the office of Springerville, Arizona police Chief Steve West to report that cops from St. Johns, Arizona had arrived with a search warrant for Inmon’s apartment. West, of course, wasn’t particularly upset. But Inmon kept talking.

Over the course of four hours, Inmon revealed more and more about himself. By the time he was done, he’d confessed to the vigilante killings of three people — and his plans to kill more…

Here’s the plan: You build a homemade helicopter, fly it onto the jail roof, and bust me outta here. No, really. I’m serious. It’ll be easy.
