TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Samantha Martinez, 20, who was arrested after police learned she faked her own kidnapping to make her boyfriend jealous.
Martinez was reported missing and abducted to Miami Police after her boyfriend received a call that led him to believe she was in danger.
Police tracked the number the abduction call came in from, and traced it back to a hotel where Martinez was staying.
When they caught her she confessed to orchestrating the entire plot to trick her boyfriend.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
A 30-year-old man named Li from Heilongjiang, China, who got dumped by his girlfriend, so he sent her a picture of a bomb, that was really just sausages and tape.
His sister saw the photo and didn’t know the difference so she called the cops on Li.
Police have since arrested the “sausage bomber,” charging him with endangering public security.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Spencer Hanvey, 22, an Arkansas man who was dumb enough to break into the same pharmacy four times in a month.
Hanvey allegedly stole thousands of prescription drug pills from the pharmacy during the course of four break-ins.
He was picked up by police after a surveillance video identified him during the fourth break-in.
He initially denied involvement in the burglaries, but later admitted to being involved in at least one, also telling authorities that he had an addiction to Xanax.
He is being held on $20,000 bail.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Nordstrom, which is selling a stone wrapped in a leather pouch for $114.
We’re guessing it’s for the person who has everything.
The description says “the smooth Los Angeles-area stone — wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather secured by sturdy contrast whipstitching — is sure to draw attention wherever it rests.”
