Watch: Florida man steals ice cream freezer from under nose of sleeping clerk

A possibly inebriated gentleman went to a service station, spit on the floor, raised his middle finger to the security camera and looked straight into it for a few seconds, wiped his gob on his T-shirt, then dragged away a large ice cream freezer, all while the clerk sawed wood at the pay window.

Authorities arrested Dennis Norman on grand theft charges on April 22. He was released from jail on $1,000 bond.

Florida Man attempting to rob bank leaves behind job application form with username, password


Felipe Cruz mugshot, courtesy Pompano Beach, Florida police, via Sun-Sentinel.

A man tried to rob a Chase Bank in Pompano Beach, Florida on April 10. He selected a teller behind bulletproof glass who refused to give him money, and presented a robbery note with his demands: "Give me the 100s 50s 20s now. Do not set the alarm. Hurry!!!" When the teller rebuffed him, he ran away but left his stickup note behind.

His demands had been penned on the back of an online job application form, complete with the handwritten username of CRUZFELIPE36. It also included a password, Gioielli stated in a federal criminal complaint.
Police are still looking for Felipe Cruz.
