Boy Sparks Police Hunt After Hiding Under His Bed To Avoid School

9-year-old Josh Dinning sparked a huge police search -- which cost tens of thousands of dollars -- after he hid under his bed because he didn't want to go to school.

Josh crawled through a tiny gap in the bottom of his bed-frame and curled up where he thought he wouldn't be seen.  And he wasn’t.  Josh's family panicked when they went into his room to wake him up for school and discovered he wasn't there.

His mother immediately called the police and they mobilized a huge search party including a helicopter and their team of rescue & recover dogs.  The search lasted 3 hours and 40 minutes.  Josh was eventually found after police went back for a second look.  

The police are now considering filing charges and billing Josh’s family for the stunt.


New Jersey Teen Accepted By All Eight Ivy League Schools

Talk about having to make a hard decision:  a New Jersey teenager has been accepted by all 8 Ivy League Schools and has to pick which one she wants to go with.

Ifeoma White-Thorpe is graduating from high-school with a 4.0 GPA, so when it came time to think about college, she applied to Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Dartmouth and Brown – and said she’d be happy if she were accepted to just one of them.

But – she was accepted by ALL of them. 

She hasn’t made a decision on which college she will attend yet, but she does know that she wants to earn a degree in biology and pursue a career in global health.


Stupid Criminal Used A Wheelchair To Rob A Store

Police say a man used a wheelchair to rob a store.

Authorities say 36-year-old LARRY JOHNSON of Waterbury, Connecticut rolled into a jewelry store in a wheelchair and asked to look at a $37-thousand-dollar Rolex watch.  Once he had the item in his hands, cops say he stood up, maced the sales clerk, and ran, not wheeled, off with the watch.

But, he did leave his wheel chair behind. . . . with his fingerprints all over them.  And since he’s had a few prior run-ins with the law, prosecutors were able to prove their case using Johnson's fingerprints as evidence.  Stupid Criminals!!!!

He pleaded guilty to robbery, larceny, and assault Wednesday and faces six years in prison. He'll be sentenced in December right on time for Christmas.
