When you put cameras out overnight, you shouldn’t be surprised by what turns up — even if you catch Santa Claus on film.

At least that’s what police in Gardner, Kansas found, according to The Daily Mail.

They set up some motion-activated camera to catch mountain lions at night and ended up with photos of Bigfoot, Santa Claus, the Abominable Snowman, and more. While it’s not confirmed as to whether or not Gardner is a hotbed of paranormal activity, the police there did have a good sense of humor about the pictures.

“We would like to sincerely thank the persons responsible as it made our day when we pulled up what we expected to be hundreds of pictures of coyotes, foxes and raccoons,” Gardner Police Department wrote on Facebook.

“Thank you to the citizens who noticed the cameras. Your effort and sense of humor is greatly appreciated as it made our day.”

 Air Horn Terrorist Has Been Captured by police

Our long national nightmare is over. Police apprehended the air horn terrorist of El Segundo, California on Sunday morning. Citizens of that sleepy, SoCal city have been on edge for the past few weeks as an air horn that sounds like a train has been wreaking havoc on their community.

Police have detained a suspect in connection with the noise, and boy, does he look like someone who likes a good air horn. We’re not talking about the air horn you here when some serious good times are about to go down. We’re talking about a good, old fashioned annoying honk from someone with a crazy hair cut and unkempt facial hair.

NBC Los Angeles reports on the ups and downs of the police investigation into the noise:

“Police have received numerous reports of an extremely loud air horn going off before residents spot a getaway car, a blue four-door sedan driven by a man.”

“Oftentimes, officers couldn't catch the air horn blower because the person would blare the horn and then ‘beat feet,’ police said. At times, officers on the east side of town could hear the noise and would hurry over, only to find that the perpetrator had taken off.”

"He's been doing this for weeks, and we've been chasing him for weeks — but we got him," El Segundo Police Lt. Ray Garcia said. Now imagine Garcia saying this while popping on a pair of aviator sunglasses and dusting off his hands. So cool.

This game of cat and mouse didn’t end with the apprehension because they still had this fantastic mugshot to take, and wow, move over, Nick Nolte, this one’s a keeper.

Hey, if you’re going to steal a cop car, why not share the experience with your friends?

Police arrested John Pinney, a Tulsa resident, who stole a cop car and streamed the joyride on Facebook Live on Monday night. Pinney's friends and followers got to join in the fun of stealing a patrol car, engaging in a high-speed police chase, and singing along to the radio without the added stress of breaking the law.

Oklahoma's News on 6 reports that Pinney simply walked up to the unlocked patrol car, opened the door, and took off.

News On 6 continues, "Tulsa police sergeant Steve Stoltz said a woman called 911 and told the dispatcher a man got into a police car near 5th and Denver, asked if she wanted a ride, then drove off when she said no."

Presumably, when this woman declined to be Pinney's audience, he turned to the officer's iPad, where he logged onto Facebook and proceeded to bring officers and followers on a 30-to-40-minute, 120-mile-per-hour car chase.

Stoltz "Liked" Pinney's approach to expediting police procedure, though.

"I would encourage every criminal out there to Facebook Live their crimes so that we can catch you a lot easier," said Stoltz. "Use that Facebook Live at your trial to get a better conviction."

According to News on 6, Pinney was arrested "on nine complaints, including eluding, resisting arrest, and possession of a firearm by a felon." Thanks to Facebook Live, we’ll be able to relieve these crimes over and over again.

Just a quick update on all those Facebook check-ins in North Dakota yesterday. As it turns out, the Morton County Sheriff's Department says that it is not looking at check-ins to verify protesters of the Dakota Access Pipeline. 

The Morton County Sheriff's Department took to Facebook and said:

Yesterday, thousands of Facebook users "checked in" at Standing Rock Indian reservation in Cannon Ball, ND in hopes of confusing police and showing support for the activists.

Despite the validity of the original post, The LA Times says, "Some Native American activists still welcomed the check-ins as another form of showing support for the months-long protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline, proposed to run past tribal land on its route between North Dakota and Illinois."

Two things that really got me going here: One, it's almost like he thought by showing the police he was playing Pokémon GO! that he thought it'd be all chill after. Second, I'm pretty sure he was still trying to catch whatever it was that got him in the accident, after being confronted by the cops for CRASHING into a cop car! Sheesh, man. Come on.

Since its launch, Pokemon Go players have fallen into a pond, found a dead body and were targeted by robbers. But the boys in blue of the Sterling Police came across a burglar who came up with a perfect excuse: "I was looking for a Pokestop". Slight problem: he was holding a crowbar at 2am on a rooftop!

Apparently, London police found a "hidey hole" full of individual baggies of pot. Of course they confiscated them, but they were kind enough to leave a note. 

Who knows if the dealer will #GetInTouch. We're guessing, probably not.

It looks like "suspicious" rap battlers are on the loose in Charlton, Massachusetts. The local police department posted this bulletin, warning residents of mysterious strangers that might shout "Rap lingo" at them. Obviously, a lot of Facebook commenters did not take this notice very seriously:



Not everyone disagreed with the police's stance on this, and they initially responded to criticism with a little more information to justify the a post about the incident. 



They also updated later to add some context to the post. 



Rap music is safe... for now, just keep your rap battles out of Charlton.

The Roselle, Illinois police department posting a picture of a car with a 15-foot tree sticking out of it on their Facebook page with this description:

A few weeks ago, a Roselle police officer saw a car driving southbound on Roselle Road with a 15-foot tree embedded in the front grill of the car. After stopping the driver, he also noticed the airbags had been deployed (apparently from hitting the tree). After an investigation, the Roselle officer arrested the driver for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol.

Yet another reason why you should not drink and drive!

This dashcam video actually shows her driving around with the tree sticking out of her car:

This adorable sloth just wanted to cross the road but he ran into some trouble. He was found clinging to the median on the highway in Ecuador and rescued by traffic police.  They took a few pictures with him to document the situation, he seems very happy that someone is there to help. 



According to the Facebook page of Ecuador's transit commission he was taken to a veterinarian who gave him the OK to be returned to the wild.

When a noise complaint was called about a group of kids playing basketball too loudly, this Gainesville, FL police officer showed up to set them straight. And by set them straight, we mean dunking on them while playing basketball.

Officer White handled the issue (or non-issue) like a pro and according to the Gainesville Police Department, he is trying to set up a full game.

In all honesty the Star Wars reference and mustache were on point. Anyone else on board for voting Colbert in for a crucial cameo role?


Don't forget to check out the most recent GoPro footage to surface, which provides an all too close and personal full 15 minutes of on-the-ground action. The mission, 'Cisne Negro' or Black Swan, already possesses all the dark and dramatic appeal any modern day, crime-addled thriller needs to make a splash on the big screen.

The original photos received with disapproval from Mr. Pugh:


Just cause you're on the run, doesn't mean you stop caring about the looks--good and bad.


"This photo was sent to us by Mr Pugh himself," Lima Police Department wrote in a post.

"Man, they just did me wrong," Mr Pugh disclosed while on an Ohio radio station about why he sent the selfie in the first place.

"They put a picture out that made me look like I was a Thundercat... or James Brown on the run. I can't do that.


Fans of this madness even banded together to pitch their efforts together, and start up a Facebook page for Pugh.

The Netflix documentary series, 'Making A Murderer,' has been nothing if not a productivity-robbing, cultural sensation since it dropped in December.

If you're one of those cave-dwellers who resides under a rock you should know that the documentary focuses on Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man, who might've been framed for crimes he didn't commit a few times.

The frontman for The Black Keys, Dan Auerbach, and his new blues-rock band, The Arcs took the global bingeing efforts to a new high with their recent released track, "Lake Superior."

The song references the Steven Avery criminal case, and the perverse, if not corrupt way the police and the criminal justice system considered as an entity, handled it.

Auerbach's vocals, as usual, don't disappoint; and manage to carry through song, the full emotional depth of this emotionally-riveting case.

This latest bailout brings the total sum of funds Marie Holmes has dished out for her drug-trafficking boyfriend Lamarr McDow, to a whopping $21 million.

She's a multi-million dollar enabler who got lucky with the lottery, won a grand lump-sump payment of $181 million, and has since spent her winnings in the seemingly most irrational and symptomatically insane way possible. See McDow below.

Holmes has bailed her depraved and ungrateful boyfriend out from behind bars three times since March 2015. Someone close to this lady needs to talk some sense into her, and quick.
