Alexa, where were you on the night of December 26?

According to Engadget, police in Bentonville, Arkansas have issued a warrant for Amazon to turn over any information that might have been recorded on a suspect's Amazon Echo.

James Andrew Bates is set for trial next year for first-degree murder, and police believe some evidence regarding the murder of Victor Collins may be on his virtual assistant. Because the Echo is always ready for your commands, and occasionally turns on by accident, police think that crucial information may live on the device. Amazon has, thus far, not handed over anything on their Echo data servers, aside from purchase history.

Engadget reports:

“Police say Bates had several other smart home devices, including a water meter. That piece of tech shows that 140 gallons of water were used between 1AM and 3AM the night Collins was found dead in Bates' hot tub. Investigators allege the water was used to wash away evidence of what happened off of the patio. The examination of the water meter and the request for stored Echo information raises a bigger question about privacy. At a time when we have any number of devices tracking and automating."

However, Bates’ attorney believes her client is entitled to some privacy. "You have an expectation of privacy in your home, and I have a big problem that law enforcement can use the technology that advances our quality of life against us,” said defense attorney Kimberly Weber.

Will this turn into another full-blown privacy issue, like the one Apple underwent when the FBI wanted access to the San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhone?

No, he would not like fries with that. 

Police arrested U.S. Marshal Charles Brown on Saturday after allegedly threatening a McDonald’s employee in New York City with a gun for taking too long. Now that’s what I call an un-happy meal. Sorry.

According to Gothamist, “Charles Brown, 30, was on line at around 1:20 a.m. at the 86th Street McDonald's in Bay Ridge when he got into an argument with a 25-year-old worker about the wait, according to an NYPD spokeswoman. Brown allegedly stormed out of the establishment, pulled out a gun, and pointed it at the worker from outside, the spokeswoman said.”

First, McDonald's employees can't even make a livable wage, now customers don't even want them living. It doesn’t sound like this customer was ba-da-da-da loving it... Again, very sorry. I'm just kind of going through something at the moment. 

Police found Brown a block away with a loaded .40-caliber pistol on his belt. He is being charged “with menacing, a licensed firearm transgression, both misdemeanors, and harassment.” The judge released him without bail and requires that he stay away from McDonald’s. Wait, judges can do that? Then what excuse is there for Hamburglar crime spree? 

Sounds like he left with a real Grimace. Ugh. There’s no excuse for these. It’s just there are so many McDonald’s puns to make. Sesame seed pun. Stop it.

Any leprechaun will tell you, don’t take your eyes off the gold.

Owners of this armored truck, who just left an 86-pound bucket of gold flakes out in the open, learned this the hard way, when a passerby swiped the 5-gallon metal bucket from the unguarded van. Apparently, the guard left to grab their cellphone in broad daylight on West 48th Street in New York City.

via RuPaul's Drag Race S8

ABC News said, “The thief lugged the gold flakes up the street, taking an hour to complete what would normally be considered a 10-minute walk. He then hopped into a white van and fled.”

It’s like he showed up to rob the place and half the work was done for him. While the suspect is thought to be hiding in Florida, because of course he is, officials should probably just chalk this one up to a “freebie.”

Drake and Future were performing at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix Tuesday night when a thief (or thieves) made off with a suitcase containing $2-$3 Million dollars worth of jewelry. The suitcase has been on one of the tour buses that the thieves had broken into.



Drake freaked out when he heard the news, and security footage is being reviewed to catch a glimpse of the criminals.



Good thing Drake has a hotline set up for just these purposes...

Sometimes we lose ourselves amidst the pursuit to catch 'em all...Let's just hope that this fool over in Milford, Michigan wasn't actually trying to catch a Parasect before he was apprehended by police authorities. 

Chief Thomas Lindberg said the man (William Wilcox) just made it easy, by showing up. Wilcox, a repeat offender with a warrant out for his arrest, ended up right in front of the men that'd go on to take him into custody.

"It was a misdemeanor warrant for a failure to appear on a breaking and entering charge," Lindberg said. "They approached him. Took him in custody without incident and he admitted he was trying to catch the character at the flagpole."

A Georgia judge sentenced Kayla Dixon to 40 years in prison after she pled guilty to shooting a man over his Playstation 4. WSB-TV in Atlanta reports that Dixon gave her confession to the crime as part of a plea deal.

The horrific incident occured when Dixon and her boyfriend attempted to steal the Playstation 4 after 28-year-old Daniel Zeitz posted a listing for the console on Craigslist. Zeitz resisted, and Dixon shot him.

“I would trade anything, almost anything, to bring Daniel back. But I know I can’t,” she said in a statement to press. “I know he had plans. I wish I could tell him I’m so, so sorry that this happened, but I can’t.”
