An ill-fated attempt to bust into an ex-boyfriend's home and a drunk driver lost in the worst possible place are among the weirdest crime stories of the week:
- Some Ways Are Easier Than Others to Visit Your Ex: A tip for would-be home invaders: You might consider attempting to break in the old-fashioned way, say, a window or a door. Most definitely not the way that California woman Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa chose to try to get into the home of her ex, a man she had gone on just six dates with before he ended things.
- Driver Mistook Jail for Someplace Else: A Michigan woman didn't have far to go after her arrest on drunk-driving charges. Officers say the 39-year-old was in the Van Buren County Jail's parking lot when her BAC clocked in at more than twice the legal limit—because she mistook the building for a much, much different locale.
- Woman's Entire Cabin Gets Stolen: It's not too often that your house isn't where you left it. But that was the case for Josie-Anne Pilotte, who spent three weeks building a small cabin in the Yukon that has since disappeared. At least the cabin kidnappers left behind some consolation items for Pilotte.
- 500-Pound Suspect Can't Fit Inside Police Car: Florida police say a 500-pound man resisted arrest by sitting down and challenging deputies to move him. They managed to do so, then realized 45-year-old Howard Hendrix wouldn't fit inside the patrol car. Based on the 911 call, however, the situation could have been much more uncomfortable for everyone involved.
- What Not to Text to Your Probation Officer: A Georgia man on probation got himself sent back to jail, with an extra year to serve, after he posed a simple question to his probation officer via text. Did we mention it was a wrong number? The text led the officer to Alan Cross' home, and what was found there proved to be his undoing.
