Bonehead Of The Day

 

A shoplifting suspect stuffed so much stolen merchandise down her pants at a Louisville Walgreens that her pants started to fall off.
 
The 32-year-old woman was seen hiding items in her pants. A store employee told officers she concealed so much merchandise that her pants legs were obviously bulging, causing her to walk with a 'seriously noticeable limp.'

By the time police arrived on the scene, she had left the store without paying for the items. An officer found the woman in the rear parking area and said her pants were falling down because she had so many items concealed in them.

She is charged with theft by unlawful taking and alcohol intoxication in a public place.

Coming To Sears.. Drive Thru Shopping

 

Sears is about to offer curb side pickup service powered by a mobile app.

Just order your product online and the app will let you know when it's available for pickup. Zoom by your nearest Sears store and someone will show up curbside with your order and even help you put it into your car.

There's a great incentive built in, too. You get to set a 5 minute timer when you pull up on the app and if your item isn't at your car in that time you get a $5 coupon to shop for another product.

If the Sears drive thru service shows success it'll launch for their sister store, K-Mart.

Holy Infestation..  200 Bats. 1 Apartment (Not The Batcave)

 

An exterminator in Louisiana had his hands full when he had to remove 200 bats from a recently vacated apartment.

The woman who lived in the apartment gave it up after bats started making their way into the building.

The former resident said the exterminator wanted her to open all her vents to free the bats but decided it was better to just move out so they didn't get all over her furniture.

The exterminator said he will release the bats somewhere outside of the town.  The building owner has sealed all the holes to prevent them from re-entering.
