A Florida man who hit the high seas in order to bring home a seafood dinner managed to do just that on dry land by taking his trawler to a supermarket, where he piled a passel of shrimp into his shorts before sailing off in his pickup truck.
The unidentified trawler drove up to the market towing his fishing boat and headed straight to the seafood corner, where he and apal ordered up a mess of chow. While his pal piled his portion of the take into a shopping cart and wandered away, the felonious fisherman decided he’d like his shrimp stuffed into his shorts.

A four-year-old Pennsylvania girl with a yen for learning got schooled in the ways of our legal system when cops showed up at her house to retrieve books she’d neglected to return to her local library.
The toddler was, in fact, several months late in returning the books, which included copies of such best-sellers as I See the Moon and The Halloween Cat and had racked up about $80 in fines. Library authorities defended their actions, saying they’d sent out three postcards requesting their return.

A thug in Florida set the bar pretty high for the next criminal who wants to play ‘Beat the Clock’ by committing a felony just 16 minutes after being released from prison.
Marcus Hunt, who’d been freed after posting bail on charges of fleeing police and driving without a license, was busted just minutes later when he walked up to a man, punched him in the face and rode off on his bicycle. It took just a few more minutes for deputies to find him, so he was back behind bars before the next shift change.
Hunt’s last major sentence was a two year stint and ended in December of last year.
