Drugs reclaimed at lost and found
Cumberland County deputies say a couple tried to reclaim their illegal drugs at a mall lost and found.
Billie Jo Ransom, 28, and Arron Dean Revels, 23, were arrested while shopping at Cross Creek Mall.
Detective say the pair went to the mall food court for lunch. They allegedly had a tote bag with them with crack cocaine, marijuana and cash inside. Ransom apparently put the bag under the table where they were sitting and then forgot and left it behind.
When they returned and the bag was gone, deputies say the couple went to the mall security office to reclaim it. Deputies were waiting for them and slapped on the handcuffs.
Ransom and Revels are now charged with intent to sell and deliver cocaine and marijuana. They're currently free on bond.
Bank Robbers Pose For Pictures
DeKalb County Police and the FBI got the break of a lifetime in their investigation into a series of violent bank robberies. They are convinced that someone will call them and identify them. That's because they have great pictures of all four suspects who robbed a Bank of America on Panola Road in DeKalb County Wednesday afternoon. The photos would not have been any better taken in a photo booth. They were taken at a sporting goods store next to the bank. For some reason, the suspects went into that sporting goods store before they robbed the bank. Surveillance cameras in the store show everyone who walks in. Once inside the bank one of the suspects jumped the counter while two others held customers and employees at bay with guns. Police believe the fourth person drove the getaway vehicle. One of the suspects seen in the sporting goods store was a woman. "We do believe that she's an associate of the bank robbers and that she may possibly have been the getaway driver in today's (Wednesday's) robbery," said FBI Special Agent Steve Lazarus.

Spy camera discovered in women's restroom
A video camera was found in the women's bathroom of a Buffalo Grove business Wednesday afternoon, but no footage was found on it except for an image of the man who had placed it.
Police said an employee of a company on the 1300 block of Barclay Boulevard reported that she found a camera hidden under some paper towels that was set in video mode.
Police said the data card showed nobody but the man who put the camera there.
"We believe we have some strong leads in the case," Cmdr. Steve Husak said Thursday.
The bathroom was in an office building in the village's industrial park area. Investigators are still looking into the case, and Husak said he doesn't know if the man worked in the building.
