Some thieves have a penchant for the strangest things.

Residents in Yulin city, Guangxi province, were treated to a colourful array of more than 2,000 sets of women’s lingerie laid out neatly on the ground at a public space in their neighbourhood on Saturday.

The used underwear, which belonged to women in the neighbourhood, had been stolen by a male resident over the course of the year, news website Gxnews.com.cn reported.

The report said the man hid the stolen lingerie above ceiling tiles in a number of stairwells within the residential building where he lived.

Dumb Criminals: DVD Of "Let's Be Cops" Found Inside Vehicle Of Arrested Police Impersonator

Buck's vehicle had four L.E.D. flashing lights mounted within the grille, one additional L.E.D. light mounted on the interior of the windshield, and one siren and/or public address speaker mounter under the hood of the vehicle.

Deputies also located a front-facing surveillance camera mounted inside the windshield as well as a sticker affixed to the windshield which read "Department of Defense registered vehicle."

Additionally, the vehicle had a "Police Interceptor" emblem attached to the rear which is commonly seen on Ford Crown Victoria police model vehicles.

A consensual search was then performed by deputies on Buck's vehicle. The search yielded an additional "Police Interceptor" emblem and one Hernando County Sheriff's Office business card. Also located inside the vehicle was the DVD "Let's Be Cops."

"If I could do tonight over again, I never would have done this," Buck told deputies.

Buck also said that he installed all of the police-related equipment on/in his vehicle so that "no one would mess with him."


Dumb Criminals: Suspected Christmas Mail Thieves Nabbed By A Guy On A Kayak

SAMMAMISH — A Good Samaritan on a kayak helped sheriff’s deputies catch a suspected mail thief who had stolen a kayak but forgot to grab a paddle and was trying to flee across water by paddling with his hands, the King County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies received multiple calls around 7:30 a.m. Christmas Eve that a man in his 30s and a woman in her 20s were going through mailboxes around the town of Sammamish.

While deputies were en route to the scene, Good Samaritans located the suspects’ car — allegedly filled with mail — in the 2900 block of 204th Avenue SE, deputies said. Witnesses used their vehicles to box the car in, but the suspects fled on foot, deputies said.

Deputies set up a perimeter around the block and arrested the female suspect without incident. However, the male suspect managed to grab a kayak from a nearby yard and hop into an unnamed neighborhood pond.


Dumb Criminals: DUI Suspect Was Wearing Elf Costume

RIVERDALE – A man dressed as one of Santa's little helpers found himself in trouble Friday morning when Riverdale police allegedly discovered him drunkenly passed out in a car.

Around 3:30 a.m., Sgt. Pat Harden was dispatched to the parking lot of Target on Route 23 after receiving a report of a suspicious vehicle, Lt. James Macintosh said.

Harden located the car, a gray Toyota van, parked by the store's loading dock with its engine running, lights on and music blaring, the lieutenant said.

The driver, Brian Chellis, 23, of Cedar Grove, was asleep behind the wheel, wearing an "Elf on the Shelf" costume, Macintosh said.


University Of Illinois Chicago Study: Alcohol Can Actually Improve Creative Thinking

Most corporate offices don't condone drinking on the job, but a case may be made for reconsideration. As it turns out, a little bit of alcohol really can support creative thinking.

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago found that a certain level of inebriation can help get the creative juices flowing. In the study, participants whose blood alcohol level (BAC) was slightly under .08 percent performed better in a creative task than did their sober counterparts. (The intoxicated group, however, underperformed when they were assigned memory tasks.) The researchers determined that a person's "creative peak" is reached when the person hits a BAC of .075 percent.

Enter The Problem Solver, a new beer that aims to make it easier for drinkers to find their "creative peak." The drink comes equipped with a scale for drinkers to weigh themselves with; the bottle is labeled with an indicator for drinkers to determine how much they need to drink to get to their sweet spot. BAC changes from drinker to drinker -- while a heavier person tends to require more alcohol to increase his or her BAC, a smaller person may be deemed a "light weight." The Problem Solver simplifies having to do all the math. This drink has a 7.1 percent alcohol content, which is comparable to most malt liquors, and is taken into consideration when calculating BAC.

Dumb Criminals: Botched Bakery Robbery Ends With Crook Falling Through Ceiling

A 19-year-old Mascotte man was charged with armed burglary after he fell through the ceiling of Groveland bakery — almost hitting the owner — and landed on a rack of potato chips.

A business owner next to the Gonzalez Bakery on West Broad Street initially told police he heard footsteps coming from his ceiling before hearing a crashing sound next door. He rushed to the bakery and saw a man — later identified as Chacarion Avant — on the ground covered with pieces of insulation and ceiling tiles.

Police arrived at the bakery and owner Anselmo Gonzales told them he was placing baked goods on a shelf when Avant fell through the ceiling, barely missing him, and landed on the chip display. Police said Avant appeared disoriented, so Groveland Fire Rescue and Lake Emergency Medical Service were called to look at him before he was transported to South Lake Hospital.

The owner of a barber shop in the same building later told police his ceiling was heavily damaged.
