VDPD for Friday, Jan 20th: The Wrong Question To Ask!
19-year-old Devonte Davon Jeter was one of four men in a car stopped by Midland, Pennsylvania police back on May 13. The officer found marijuana in the car but Jeter's defense attorney argued that the bag of pot could have belonged to any of the four men and there's no way to prove it belonged to his client. Unfortunately for him, that argument kind of fell apart due to one simple question Jeter asked the arresting officer. That question was, "Can I have my weed back?" The prosecutor in the case told the judge, "I don't know what else 'Can I have my weed back?' can mean, other than it's his." The judge agreed and ordered Jeter to stand trial on marijuana possession charges. (Beaver County Times)

VDPD for Tuesday, Jan 3rd: No Sale - Million-Dollar Bill Gets North Carolina Man Arrested at Walmart
LEXINGTON, N.C. – Do you have change for a million-dollar bill?
Police say a North Carolina man insisted his million-dollar note was real when he was buying $476 worth of items at a Walmart.
Investigators told the Winston-Salem Journal that 53-year-old Michael Fuller tried to buy a vacuum cleaner, a microwave oven and other items. Store employees called police after his insistence that the bill was legit, and Fuller was arrested.
The largest bill in circulation is $100. The government stopped making bills of up to $10,000 in 1969.
Fuller was charged with attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument. He is in jail on a $17,500 bond, and it isn't clear if he has an attorney. He is scheduled to be in court Tuesday.

Naked, roaring man arrested after sleeping in stranger's home
A 31-year-old Bozeman man was arrested on suspicion of sleeping naked in a Dier Lane garage and then roaring at officers trying to capture him.
Thomas Lehman Manley was arrested Tuesday on misdemeanor charges of criminal trespassing, resisting arrest and obstructing an officer. He was initially ordered held in the Gallatin County jail on $855 bond.
According to court documents:
A man arrived home around 5:15 p.m. to find a strange pickup truck in the driveway of his home in the 100 block of Dier Lane. He went inside and saw signs that someone had been in the garage.
Inside the garage, the man discovered Manley asleep on the floor in a sleeping bag. Manley awoke when the resident kicked his feet, and the two briefly spoke.
Then Manley "jumped up and spun out of the sleeping bag" completely naked. Manley then ran inside the house and locked himself in the bathroom.
A Gallatin County sheriff's deputy and a Montana Highway Patrol trooper arrived, and Manley "came running out of the bathroom toward (the officers) yelling and waving his arms around. He was still naked and unarmed."
Manley returned to the bathroom and closed the door. He emerged once more and "roared and threw his arms around."
He continued to roar and pound the bathroom door and wall.
When Manley opened the door to roar again, the trooper used a shotgun to shoot him in the stomach with a non-lethal beanbag. Manley continued to resist arrest, but the officers were able to cuff him.
"The entire time he did not say a word, just yelled or roared."

Instant Karma: Shoplifting Edition!
The irony gods of Utah got a little board apparently and decided to throw themselves a little party. 36-year-old Eldon Alexander and 47-year-old Korin Vanhouten had their car burglarized outside an WinCo grocery store in Ogden. What makes it ironic is that, while their car was being vandalized, the couple was inside the store being accused of shoplifting! They were released after being cited by police in the theft of small-ticket items worth about $25. They then walked into the parking lot and found a stereo amplifier, drum machine and other items valued at about $60 had been stolen from their car. Amazingly, Korin and Eldon then flagged down the very officer who had just cited them for shoplifting to report their car had been broken into. He took a crime report. Even more ironic -- the car burglary occurred while the officer's car was parked nearby -- but of course he wasn't there because he was busy inside with the shoplifters.
VDPD for Monday Dec 19th:
A 12-year-old upstate New York boy may be wishing that his dog ate his homework. Police in the village of Liberty used a sheet of math homework to track down a boy suspected of breaking into an auction house. The owner said he arrived Sunday morning and discovered that a window had been removed and jewelry, cellphones, video games and other items had been stolen from his business. But a sheet of homework with the suspect's name on it was found in the woods behind the auction house. Police tracked down the boy and charged him with burglary. Hey, at least the kid does his homework!
