    A man wearing a wolf’s mask is being sought by police in the knifepoint robbery of a New York beauty salon.

    According to cops in Spring Valley, a village 35 miles north of New York City, the wolfman walked into Kelly’s Unisex Salon Tuesday at 4 PM and demanded cash from an employee.

    With a knife in his right paw, the robber directed the worker to place the money in a backpack he provided the 31-year-old woman (who was unharmed during the stickup). After the man left the business, the worker scrambled to call 911.

    In a bid to help generate tips from the public, police yesterday released surveillance video of the armed robbery. Stills from that clip are above and below.

    Police said the suspect was between 5’ 4” and 5’ 7” with a medium build.

    A burglary suspect used an infant as a human shield as he fled yesterday from warning shots being fired by an Alabama homeowner, police report.

    According to cops, two men were stealing items from a home in Adamsville, a town outside Birmingham, when a next-door neighbor spotted the pair in action. The witness called the homeowner at work, prompting the man to race home.

    Upon arriving at his residence, the homeowner interrupted the burglary in progress. The suspects fled in different directions as the man fired warning shots into the ground, cops noted.

    One suspect was believed to be carrying a gun, while the other was armed with a baby.

    Police apprehended Ronnie Lee Williams, 24, about 30 minutes after the burglary, according to Adamsville Police Chief R.W. Carter, who added that Williams was found with a gun holster, but no weapon, when he was nabbed.

    Cops have identified the second suspect as Rickie Rashee Walls, 30. As Walls fled the crime scene, Carter said, he held out his baby son “between the victim and himself.” Pictured above, Walls, who is on probation, remains at large.

    Investigators interviewed the child’s mother, who was unaware that the one-year-old had been used as a “shield” by the suspect. The child was not injured during the burglary.

    Like Williams, Walls has been charged with felony burglary and theft.

    A Colorado man who has been “fighting with his computer for the last several months” unloaded a volley of shots into his Dell tormentor, resulting in the death of the computer and him being cited for discharging a firearm, cops report.

    According to the Colorado Springs Police Department, officers responding last night to a 911 call about shots fired discovered that a “fed up” Lucas Hinch took his computer into a back alley and “fired 8 shots into the computer with a handgun, effectively disabling it.”

    Hinch, 38, was cited for discharging a firearm within city limits, according to a police blotter entry that includes the summary description “Man Kills His Computer.”

    When asked about the shooting, Hinch told TSG, “I just had it,” adding that he tired of the balky computer’s “blue screen of death.” Hinch said that he whacked the computer with a 9mm Hi-Point pistol recently purchased from a Craigslist seller. The gun was seized by police, who left the computer behind.

    The late Dell XPS 410 model, seen in the above police evidence photo, is survived by a monitor and a keyboard.

    Hinch, pictured above right, clipped his computer behind the Colorado Springs residence he shares with his girlfriend (and from which the couple operates a homeopathic herb store). Hinch is scheduled for a May 11 court hearing on the misdemeanor charge.

    A 70-year-old woman had four pounds of cocaine stashed in her girdles and underwear, according to federal agents who found the stash during a pat down at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

    Olive Fowler, a Guyana resident, arrived at JFK last Sunday on a Caribbean Airlines flight from Georgetown, Guyana. Traveling on a non-immigrant visitor’s visa, Fowler was selected for an examination by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers, according to a criminal complaint.

    While agents examined her baggage, Fowler “was sweating profusely and avoiding eye contact with the officers,” an investigator reported. Suspicious agents then opted to peform a pat down search of Fowler.

    “CBP officers...felt a dense, hard material under the defendant’s clothes in the area of the defendant’s groin and buttocks,” the complaint notes. As it turned out, Fowler was wearing two pairs of compression shorts over her underwear, garments that held nearly two kilos of cocaine (which has a street value in excess of $73,000).

    The accused septuagenarian smuggler was then arrested on a felony narcotics charge. Locked up in Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center, Fowler is scheduled for an April 27 preliminary hearing in U.S. District Court.

    As seen above, CBP officials released evidence photos showing Fowler’s assorted undergarments, including a shot of one girdle that was cut open to reveal the cocaine hidden inside.

    While the brand of Fowler’s compression garments is unknown, that should not keep anyone from referring to her forthwith as the “Spanx Smuggler.”

    The Georgia woman arrested for hosting an underage sex and drugs party lost custody of her children earlier this month after a judge found that she participated in a “multi-party bubble bath” with teenagers and regularly left her five offspring home alone overnight to be with her boyfriend, according to court records.

    A week before her arrest, Rachel Lehnardt, 35, appeared in court for a hearing triggered by an emergency motion filed by her husband James, a 37-year-old Iraq War veteran who is being treated for post-traumatic stress disorder.

    In February, Lehnardt (seen at right) filed for divorce from her husband, who she married in July 2000. The couple has been separated for more than six months.

    Lehnardt’s estranged spouse argued that she was unfit to share custody of the couple’s five children (aged eight to 16) due to a variety of “immoral and improper behavior.” For example, he alleged that an intoxicated Lehnardt engaged in "a game of nude twister and bubble bath" with the couple’s 16-year-old daughter and a 16-year-old boy, offered “advice to teenagers less than 17 years of age about oral, anal, and vaginal sex,” and transported “Truant 16 year olds” to a lake.

    Lehnardt also charged that his wife abused marijuana, abandoned their children, and is involved in a relationship with a man who claims to use marijuana and Ecstasy (and has said he has taken LSD). The allegations appear based on information provided by the couple’s four daughters and one son.

    During an April 7 court hearing, a Superior Court judge offered Lehnardt the opportunity to "undergo an analysis of her blood, urine, or hair follicles" to counter allegations of drug use. She declined, citing her privilege against self-incrimination. Similarly, Judge J. Wade Padgett wrote, Lehnardt refused to answer questions about the “circumstances surrounding a multi-party bubble bath” involving “teenage children” and whether she left her kids “alone at night for up to two and one-half weeks in each month to be with her boyfriend.”

    Padgett ruled that the drug, bubble bath, and abandonment charges leveled against Lehnardt were true, according to a court order. As for other claims about salacious--and illegal--conduct, Padgett noted that he was required by law to report them to police.

    It is unclear whether the jurist contacted the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office before Lehnardt’s Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor told deputies that Lehnardt had confided the details of her involvement in a recent teenage sex, drugs, and naked Twister party at her residence.

    Padgett awarded temporary custody of the couple’s five children to their paternal grandparents.

    In a court filing, James Lehnardt reported that he is “medically retired from the US Army with 100% disability” and is being treated for PTSD and “Anxiety/Depression Disorder.” Lehnardt also revealed that he is being treated for “sexual addiction to pornography,” but added that he “did not participate in any of the wife’s current behavior during the marriage.”

    A Kentucky man is facing criminal charges for allegedly drunkenly “driving” a horse.

    According to the Kentucky State Police, troopers received a call Tuesday reporting that an intoxicated man was riding a horse in the town of Betsy Layne (pop. 688).

    Investigators subsequently made contact with suspect Michael Kimmel, but he fled on foot (apparently leaving behind his four-legged ride).  Kimmel, 40, was eventually corralled and charged with DUI and fleeing or evading police.

    Seen above, Kimmel posed for his booking photo through a plexiglass window (though it is still a better image than a prior mug shot).

    Kimmel, who has used the alias “Mike Bicycle,” is currently on probation for burglary. He is locked up in the Floyd County jail on $5000 cash bond.

    From the Long Island high school that last year saw male students wear t-shirts spelling out the word “Rape,” comes two more underage idiots.

    The Commack High School duo--photographed while playing beer pong at a party--proudly displayed homemade t-shirts with a Nazi swastika and the word “Auschwitz.”

    While the photo was taken off school grounds, education officials are reportedly investigating the students, who could face disciplinary action.

    In a staement, school district brass noted that, “the actions of these students are not representative of the student body at Commack High School. We do not condone or permit any form of discrimination, bullying, or hateful messaging."

    Police in Edmond, Oklahoma have not identified any suspects in connection with the reported placement of raw bacon on the door handles of a mosque.

    Officers were called Sunday afternoon to the Islamic Society of Edmond, where a mosque trustee reported that “someone put uncooked bacon on the door handles of the men's and women's mosques” earlier in the day.

    Muslims are prohibited from consuming bacon and other pork products.

    The mosque official, who contacted police at 4 PM, told officers that the vandalism was discovered at 10 AM. An Edmond Police Department report does not indicate why six hours passed before the incident was reported to law enforcement.

    Before cleaning up the bacon, mosque members photographed the door handles. The images, including the one above, were subsequently provided to police and the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has called for a federal hate crimes investigation of the vandalism.

    Asked about the status of the criminal probe, an Edmond Police Department spokesperson said, “We do not have suspects at this time.” As noted in the police report, the mosque does not have security cameras on its property.

    A dispute over the preparation of breakfast ended yesterday morning with a Florida woman under arrest for battering her live-in boyfriend with a bowl of raw eggs, police report.

    Destini Oliver, 22, and Lorenzo Dixon, 23, quarreled Sunday in their Palmetto home over Oliver not wanting to cook breakfast, according to a police report.

    The California man who was caught on tape walloping his young son inside a convenience store claims that the violent incident was a “misunderstanding,” adding that his critics can “all ride the dick of hate because the truth comes out in the end.”

    Justin Whittington, 23, was arrested Friday on a felony child cruelty count for punching his son Jeremiah in the face inside the Vest Market in Bakersfield. Originally locked up on $1 million bail, Whittington was released from custody Saturday when his bail was cut to $20,000 after the criminal charge was reduced to child endangerment.

    Seen above, the video shows Whittington knocking the boy off his feet with a blow to the head. A second clip shows him grabbing the child’s shirt at the neck and lifting him up in the air. [Note: The clip’s narrator uses some NSFW language.]

    Fresh from the Kern County lockup, Whittington took to Facebook yesterday to play the martyr.

    In response to a supportive message from a relative, Whittington wrote, “ive never looked to a god or Jesus for anything but if he is out there i could only pray he looks out and over the ones who are willing to give my family and myself a second chance.”

    Whittington claimed, “This is all over a misunderstanding. There is more to that video than 12 seconds believe that.” After pointing out that the store’s owner was “acting like a pedo,” Whittington remarked that his toddler was “running in and out of the store being chased by my 8month pregnant wife.”

    While not addressing why he smashed the child in the face, Whittington wrote, “Let them all ride the dick of hate because the truth comes out in the end. The only thing they can do is kill me. I was put here to suffer. My son and wife need to be left out of this.”

    Whittington also complained that, “Thanks to all these people my son will forever be immortalized by social media.” In a follow-up message, he noted, “My son is strong and he is going to know i fucked up because people wont let the situation die down.”

    Pictured above with his son, Whittington is scheduled today for a Superior Court hearing.

    Meet Linda MacDonald.

    The Massachusetts woman, 55, was arrested last night for DUI after crashing her vehicle into a fence while driving in a Vermont town.

    MacDonald told cops that she was lost and trying to write down directions when she drove off the road around 10:30 PM. MacDonald, who was not injured, claimed that she was “on the telephone getting directions and writing them down on a legal pad when she exited the roadway and struck the fence,” according to a police report.

    MacDonald was arrested for drunk driving after a preliminary breath test registered her blood alcohol content in excess of the .08 limit. She is scheduled for an April 28 Superior Court arraignment.

    As seen in the above mug shot, MacDonald did not appear pleased with her arrest or the related booking photo session with the Vermont State Police.
