    He's python the conviction on appeal.

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Federal prosecutors in western New York say a 28-year-old man has been fined $5,000 for mailing live snakes to China.

    The U.S. attorney’s office in Buffalo says Chaoyi Le, of Shanghai, China, sent seven ball pythons from Amherst, New York to China in 2014 using a fake name and labeling the package “belts, candy and chocolate.” The package was intercepted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

    A man racially abused three sisters on board a train and threatened to get his dog to bite them.

    Luke Nicholls, of Hampstead Road Birmingham, also threatened to "slaughter" the women, aged 16, 22 and 23, leaving them too afraid to leave the train. Staff and other passengers tried to support them.

    The incident took place on board a London Midland service from Kings Norton to Redditch on 8 July, British Transport Police said.

    Nicholls, 21, pleaded guilty at Worcester Magistrates Court to two counts of racially aggravated assault and was jailed for eight weeks.

    He was also handed an additional twelve weeks prison sentence for breaching other suspended sentences.

    A really disturbing case.

    Aaron Pajich walked into a real-life horror movie at killer Jemma Lilley's house
    BY JOANNA MENAGHUPDATED ABOUT 7 HOURS AGO

    When 18-year-old Aaron Pajich walked through the gate at 22 Broughton Way, Orelia, on June 13 last year, he had no idea of the horror that lay ahead of him.

    His killers were 26-year-old Jemma Lilley — someone he had never met — and 43-year-old Trudi Lenon, a study colleague and the mother of a friend with whom he liked to play computer games.

    In a trial in WA's Supreme Court that played out over the past five weeks, both women denied responsibility for Mr Pajich's death, mounting what's called a "cut-throat" defence and directly blaming each other for his murder.

    The court heard Mr Pajich was probably not your usual 18-year-old.

    Prosecutor James Mactaggart said while he lived a normal life he had been assessed as being on the autism spectrum, and that was something that made him more vulnerable to Lenon and Lilley's warped plan.

    A hero-worship of serial killers
    The two women had met through mutual friends about 18 months earlier. Three weeks before Mr Pajich's death, Lenon and two of her young sons had moved in to the Broughton Way house that Lilley had bought in December, 2015.

    Lilley was a tattoo artist come night-fill manager at a suburban supermarket and had what she called "interests" in motorbikes, horror movies, knives and serial killers. ...

    Police: Thief didn’t get far in motorized grocery store cart

    FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — A man accused of stealing a motorized shopping cart from an Alaska grocery store didn’t get very far or go very fast before his low-speed getaway attempt was foiled by police.

    The battery-operated cart with a basket mounted behind the handlebars has a top speed of 1.9 mph.

    Authorities say Rondell Tony Chinuhuk of Anchorage is charged with felony theft for attempting to take the cart early Tuesday from a Safeway store in Fairbanks.

    Police say they stopped Chinuhuk while he was crossing a thoroughfare following a 10-minute joyride that consisted mostly of trying to leave the expansive store parking lot.

    The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports Chinuhuk was charged with felony theft of the $2,500 cart. Assistant public defender Jennifer Hite says in an email the office doesn’t comment on cases.

    This reminds me of Beavis & Butthead escaping the police in an electric buggy and being stopped by the police with a stinger. I cannot find a clip of said episode but it made me chuckle again.

    Suitcase containing £1m of jewels stolen from train luggage rack


    What a strange thing to do - take a case of precious stones onto a train, leave it on a luggage rack and then suddenly notice it's missing...

    Indeed. A cynical person might almost be led to suspect some sort of 'financial irregularity'.

    Did he get his just desserts?

    A man who broke into a church and ate cakes meant for mourners has had his jail term cut.

    Alex Kritikos raided the Wroxham Road Methodist Church in Sprowston, near Norwich, looking for cash to "self-medicate" with drink and drugs.

    Instead, the 41-year-old - who had 30 previous convictions - saw the desserts laid out for a wake and ate them.

    He was jailed in August for 19 months after admitting two counts of burglary. The appeal court slashed it to 14. ...

    He didn't give a hoots mon.

    New Zealand police were surprised to find a man apparently playing the bagpipes while driving his car in the city of Dunedin, it's reported.

    Acting Sergeant Bryce Johnson was conducting a routine check when he noticed a driver with his hands on something other than the steering wheel.

    "His fingers were going a million miles an hour. And I'm certain I could see a black-type instrument, which looked like a clarinet," he said, according to the Stuff.co.nzwebsite.

    Some mainstream New Zealand reports have the unnamed driver playing the clarinet-like chanter of a set of bagpipes.

    But Stuff says the self-confessed piper was only playing an "air guitar" version of the pipes. The police found no chanter or any other musical instrument in the car, the site adds.
