Bank robber stops in his tracks literally
A bank robber hit the Florida Citizens Bank in Ocala and then fled.
He got some cash, but he didn't make it far.
In fact, he just didn't make it at all. The bank robber was found dead of heart attack
A woman walking her dog on a street which dead-ends into a retention pond saw a person a few yards from the wooded area.
She called 911.
Detectives said the person and clothing matched the description given of the bank robber, later identified as Christopher Allen, 44.
The medical examiner determined that Allen died of a heart attack, with a contributing factor of cocaine toxicity.
They recovered a bag of money with $1,805 in cash along with the mask and the weapon, which turned out to be a pellet gun.
Guess he won't be spending the loot.
During job interview to become a cop, man admits having kiddy porn.
A 25-year-old Santa Rosa County man applying for a job with the Escambia County Sheriff's Office admitted having child pornography on his computer during the job screening process and was arrested.
Clarence W. Burnette, 25, was booked into the Santa Rosa County Jail and will be charged with one count of possession of child pornography, a third-degree felony, state Attorney General Bill McCollum said in a news release. Additional charges may be added.
Burnette, of Sellersville in northern Santa Rosa County, had applied for a position with the Escambia County Sheriff's Office and told deputies during his pre-employment polygraph test that he possessed child pornography.
CyberCrime investigators seized the computer at Burnett's home and conducted forensic analysis to confirm child pornography was indeed on the computer.
