    A chrome-domed criminal will serve two years in prison for heading a Rogaine theft ring that targeted more than two dozen pharmacies in Ohio, according to court records.

    Andres Arias, 36, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Common Pleas Court in Warren County and was sentenced on a felony count.

    Arias, seen above, was named earlier this year in a 12-count indictment charging him with participating in an “organized retail theft ring” that victimized numerous CVS and Walgreens stores. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped money laundering and theft raps in return for Arias’s plea to engaging in corrupt activity, the indictment’s top charge.

    According to investigators, Arias, a Florida resident, and several cohorts stole Rogaine and other over-the-counter drugs from the pharmacies and then shipped the products to a “retail fence” in New Jersey. “Some of the items would then appear online to be sold on eBay,” the indictment noted.

    The stolen Rogaine was not for the personal use of the bald Arias, who is now known as prisoner A730999 in Ohio’s Department of Rehabilitation & Correction.

    In addition to serving two years in custody, Arias has also been ordered to pay $22,000 in restitution.

    An Oregon man arrested Monday posed for a mug shot with his pet parrot on his shoulder.

    Following a court hearing, a Washington County judge ordered Craig Buckner, 38, jailed for violating release terms in connection with multiple misdemeanor theft cases.

    Buckner, not expecting to land behind bars, arrived at the courthouse with his four-year-old red parrot, which he placed in a tree before heading inside the building.

    After Buckner was taken into custody, he told a court deputy that his companion parrot was outside in a tree. Concerned for the bird’s safety, the deputy accompanied Buckner--who was handcuffed and shackled at the waist--to retrieve the parrot (which, by then, was surrounded by crows).

    As seen above, Buckner posed for a series of mug shots, one of which shows the parrot perched on his left shoulder. The parrot was subsequently picked up by a friend of Buckner’s who agreed to care for the bird.

    Buckner will be able to reunite with his parrot if he can post $10,000 bond, according to jail records.

    According to his Facebook and LinkedIn pages, Buckner owns Pacific Coast Cannabis Plantation, a “Medical marijuana/Hash Lab” that grows “High Quality Flower and we make concentrates both solvent and solventless extracts becoming one of the most sought after products in the dispensaries.”

    Meet Luis Humberto Ramirez.

    The 36-year-old was arrested Thursday evening for public intoxication after cops in Mountain Home, Arkansas found him reeking of booze and “holding onto a pillar for support” outside a shelter in the Ozark Mountains city.

    “The offender’s face was covered with permanent marker,” reported a cop who was unaware how Ramirez gained a triangular soul patch and other facial adornments.

    Ramirez, who had scratches on his face and scrapes on his arms and legs, was booked into the county jail on the misdemeanor charge. He was so intoxicated that police were unable to administer a Breathalyzer test.

    Ramirez was subsequently released from custody after posting bond.

    Meet Eva Gaitan.

    The 32-year-old Floridian is jailed on a stalking charge after she allegedly distributed naked photos of her ex-husband to the man’s employer and parents.

    Gaitan (pictured at right) was arrested yesterday on the misdemeanor charge at the Palm Harbor home she once shared with her ex-spouse. The couple's marriage was dissolved in February, according to court records.

    Police allege that Gaitan “mailed a CD of the nude images to her ex-husband’s parents” and hand delivered “packages of CDs” to her former husband’s workplace. The CDs were labeled “Requires Immediate Attention.”

    Gaitan, investigators charge, obtained the explicit photos “from her ex-husband’s flash drive.” In a post-arrest interview, Gaitan reportedly confessed to “burning the images to discs” and then distributing the CDs.

    Gaitan, who has pleaded not guilty, is being held in the Pinellas County jail in lieu of $1000 bond. A judge has ordered her to have no contact with her ex-husband.

    A pair of men described as “feminine” and wearing fake eyelashes and long red nails are being sought in connection with a yoga pants heist at a Victoria’s Secret store in South Carolina.

    Deana Milligan, an employee at the Spartanburg store, told cops that she observed two black men enter the business around 9 PM Wednesday “and hang out near a yoga pants display.”

    Milligan said that the duo proceeded to place multiple pairs of yoga pants in shopping bags before fleeing the store without paying for the garments.

    A Spartanburg Police Department report describes the suspects as wearing “red sweatshirts and red sneakers and had nose rings.” Milligan described the duo as “feminine and stated they were wearing fake eye lashes and long red nails.” One suspect, Milligan added, had a neck tattoo, while his accomplice wore a black hat atop a Mohawk haircut.

    The Donald Trump voter seen berating a Starbucks worker in a new viral video is a Miami home builder who has repeatedly been accused of violence against women and was arrested in 2014 for allegedly threatening to kill his wife, records show. 

    David Sanguesa, 53, is seen on the video calling a female employee “trash” and declaring, "Because I voted for Trump. Trump. You lost, now give me my money back...You’re garbage. You’re complete trash.”

    Sanguesa claims that workers at the Coral Gables Starbucks refused to give him the coffee he paid for because they had somehow divined he was a Trump supporter. Sanguesa, whose truck has a Trump sign attached to its tailgate, contends that he was the victim of “racism” and “discrimination” at the hands of the Starbucks workers.

    The patron who filmed Sanguesa’s antics (which can be viewed below) contends that he became upset because his order was taking too long. 

    According to court records, three women have filed court petitions accusing Sanguesa of domestic violence or repeat violence, actions that resulted in the issuance of injunctions against Sanguesa and his enrollment in a court-ordered treatment program.

    In February 2014, Sanguesa was arrested following a confrontation with his wife in their South Miami home. Sanguesa’s spouse told cops that, during an argument, he threatened to kill her. The woman charged that when she tried to dial 911, Sanguesa grabbed the phone from her, “causing a scratch” on her forearm. Sanguesa’s wife said she was carrying the couple’s 14-month-old son when Sanguesa took the phone from her.

    Sanguesa (seen in the above mug shot) fled the residence before police arrived, but was arrested three days later. He was charged with misdemeanor battery and tampering with a witness, a felony. Sanguesa was later released from custody on $5000 bond and a judge ordered him to stay away from his wife. Prosecutors ultimately declined to pursue the charges against Sanguesa, whose rap sheet includes a pair of drunk driving busts.

    Sanguesa, who graduated from Texas A&M with a psychology degree, relocated his construction/remodeling business from Houston to Miami in 2004. A 1996 Houston Business Journal story reported that Sanguesa was in charge of the construction of former President George H.W. Bush’s home in the city’s Tanglewood section.

    When not haranguing low-wage workers, Sanguesa is a triathlete who loves to “swim, travel, exercise, diving, boating and fishing,” according to his LinkedIn page. Sanguesa also reports that he volunteers at a Catholic church in Miami. On Sundays, Sanguesa says, he reads epistles to congregants at a morning mass.

    After having his sexual advances rejected by a woman nearly 50 years his junior, a 78-year-old Texas man dropped trou and mooned the object of his desire, according to cops who arrested the septuagenarian for obscenity.

    Police say that Robert Scott approached the 29-year-old woman Saturday afternoon outside a DoubleTree hotel in Kenner, Louisiana. Scott, seen at right, told the woman that she was attractive.

    “You look like a model, we should go out. I can treat you real well,” Scott told the woman, according to police. "No thank you, I have a boyfriend," the woman replied.

    When the woman--who, cops say, was attending "a class for aspiring models" at the hotel--did not jump at the retiree’s offer of a date, Scott instead suggested a “sugar daddy” arrangement. From there, Scott’s overtures took on a sexual tone, as first reported by The Times-Picayune.

    The offended woman responded by telling the elderly pickup artist to "Please get out of my face."

    Scott did not handle the rejection well. Police allege that Scott unfastened his buckle and dropped his pants and underwear to the ground, introducing the victim to his not-so-super moon. "Okay, I'll get out of your face," said Scott, who allegedly exposed "his anus, buttocks, and part of his genitals" to the victim.

    Scott--who was wearing a cowboy hat and blue jeans--was subsequently arrested outside the hotel and booked into the county jail on $5000 bond. He was released from custody yesterday due to overcrowding at the lockup.

    It is unclear why Scott, a Houston resident, was in Kenner or if he was staying at the hotel.

    A Florida man was arrested for domestic battery after striking his live-in boyfriend with a cup of ramen noodles, police report.

    Michael Herrick, 40, and his beau “got into a verbal argument at their residence in regards to questions of infidelity,” according to an arrest affidavit detailing the confrontation Friday.

    The 12:30 AM dispute in the couple’s Pinellas Park home turned violent when Herrick threw a cup of ramen noodles at the victim, who was struck in the neck by the noodles. Herrick, cops noted, said that “water was thrown on him” prior to his noodle tossing.

    After cops concluded that Herrick was the incident’s primary aggressor, he was arrested for domestic battery. The 6’ 7”, 200-pound Herrick was booked into jail on the misdemeanor count and released from custody yesterday afternoon on his own recognizance.

    Herrick’s rap sheet includes prior convictions for grand theft, passing bad checks, and violating probation.

    Meet Joshua Ivy.

    The 27-year-old Tennessee man--nude and carrying an unopened can of Coors Light--was arrested early Friday after residents of a Florida beach community called 911 to report “a naked white male banging on their windows and doors.”

    When police arrived at a condominium complex in Santa Rosa Beach, they discovered Ivy was “completely naked and appeared extremely intoxicated.” Ivy, whose speech was slurred, could not recall how much booze he had consumed, where he was staying, or how he had gotten to the Grand Isle Condominiums.

    But he did have an explanation for why he was pounding on doors. Ivy, a police report notes, said that he was “searching for someone to have sexual intercourse with.”

    Ivy’s 3:30 AM quest, however, ended only with his arrest for disorderly intoxication. He spent about five hours in custody before posting $1000 bond on the misdemeanor charge.

    Police found Ivy’s clothing in the condo parking lot.

    An ex-con bit off a chunk of his boyfriend’s ear during an early morning spat at a Florida residence, according to cops who arrested the accused assailant on a felony domestic battery charge.

    Bruce Tolbert, 31, and his beau of two years tangled early Friday at a St. Petersburg home, court records show. During that encounter, Tolbert caused the victim “permanent disfigurement” by “biting and severing his left ear.”

    When St. Petersburg police responded to a 911 call, “there were no witnesses to the incident.” However, Officer Max McDonald reported, "a portion of the victim's left ear was missing." The severed chunk “remained on the ground at the scene of the incident,” added McDonald.

    Tolbert, seen above, was subsequently arrested for aggravated domestic battery and booked into the Pinellas County jail. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond. Tolbert, who works for a seafood wholesaler, has been ordered by a judge to have no contact with the victim.

    Tolbert’s rap sheet includes multiple arrests and convictions. He was released from state prison in October 2014 after serving about seven years in custody for grand theft, robbery, and carjacking.

    A 12-year-old Texas boy who led police on a car chase this morning before crashing the SUV he was driving into a utility pole may have been intoxicated, according to cops who arrested the child.

    Around 7:30 AM, a patrolman spotted the suspect's vehicle weaving in and out of traffic on an Austin street. When the officer sought to pull over the car, the suspect continued driving.

    With the police in pursuit, the fleeing vehicle struck a car traveling in the opposite direction. While that head-on collision did not stop the suspect’s flight, the driver subsequently hit a utility pole and rolled his car (seen above).

    It was at that point that police determined that the driver was a child. The boy, who was alone in the vehicle, suffered minor injuries and was transported to a nearby children’s hospital for treatment.

    The minor, cops say, is facing several possible juvenile court charges, including driving while intoxicated, failing to stop and render aid, and evading police. Due to his age, the boy was not identified by police, who also declined to say who owned the SUV the child was driving.

    No, forehead tattoos aren’t just for kids!

    Floridian Secundino Cardenas, 67, has, for some unknown reason, a reflection on giving and getting respect inked in Spanish on his noggin.

    Cardenas, a Miami resident, posed for mug shots Sunday following his arrest on two counts of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

    Cardenas, a registered sex offender, is being held in lieu of $7500 bond at Miami’s Metro West Detention Center. Scheduled for a November 14 arraignment, Cardenas has been ordered by a judge to stay away from his alleged victim, a family member.

    The defendant's forehead tattoo declares, “Yo soy el indio Colon respetame que yo te respeto.”
