For more than a generation, Derek Thoms and his family owned a number of laundromats in California. However, his laundromats were burglarized 12 times in the last six months. Within a week, thieves stole $5,000 in quarters and destroyed an $11,000 change machine. Although they were all caught on camera, Thoms says nothing’s been done. His final straw was when thieves came to his home and tried to steal his truck. He and his family decided to move 2,000 miles away to Alabama.
Oregon State Trooper Silver was making a traffic stop on Interstate 5. Police say the driver was going a little too fast with her dogs in the car. One of her animals didn’t like being pulled over on the side of the road, and, as police put it, tried to “elude on foot.” The dog leaped out of the window, but Trooper Silver caught him! As the furry suspect lept out of the open window, the officer caught him and returned him to the backseat of his relieved mother’s car.
