This week's crime blotter ranged from the tragic to the downright strange:
- Woman Murdered on Walk of Fame—Over $1: A stroll on Hollywood's Walk of Fame turned deadly for one woman who was stabbed Tuesday after refusing to give a trio of panhandlers $1 for a photo she took of their cardboard signs—which reportedly featured a request for money, a smiley face, and four-letter obscenities.
- Cops: Mom, Son Stole (Lots of) Gopher Feet: This isn't just a story about the theft of gopher feet in Minnesota—it's a story about the felony theft of gopher feet in Minnesota. A mother and son have been charged with stealing hundreds of pairs from the garage of a trapper in Harmony. And it gets weirder.
- Carjacking Fail: Gunman Can't Drive a Stick: If carjacking is your line of business, it's probably a good idea to learn how to drive a stick shift. Florida police say one would-be carjacker learned that the hard way.
- Woman Unmasks Burglar: It's Her Grandson: An Albuquerque grandmother thought she recognized a masked burglar who entered her home a week ago—and when Pamela Dearinger managed to rip off his bandana, her suspicions were confirmed: It was her grandson, police say, and his plan went south from there.
- DUI Suspect to Cops: Here, Have a Beer: When police asked a suspected drunk driver for his license, he offered an alternative. And it wasn't his passport.
