Oviedo, FL: Thieves in Oviedo have a thing for women’s wear. A man was spotted stealing $2,000 worth of bras and panties from an Oviedo Victoria’s Secret, just days before a different man went into a Macy’s and stole a number of designer dresses worth $2,600.
I bet they were actually working together. One got the underwear and the other the outer wear! Yuk….

Medford, NY: In what has been investigated as a hate crime on Long Island, an Ecuadoran family in Medford found racist epithets scrawled on trash dumped on their manicured lawn overnight, cops said mid-June, 2009. Graphic artist Freddy Cevallos, 26, said his family woke up to find condoms, tampons, fast-food wrappers, pages torn from a high school SAT review book and swiffer pads strewn on the lawn and scrawled with racist words and phrases. The family had lived in the house for 14-years without incident.
Weird and nasty too….
