School Burglars Ruin Cafeteria Food Worth More Than $10K

James Darrell Rogers Jr.

Authorities were called to the Orange County school at 3005 N. Apopka Vineland Road about 1 a.m. Tuesday by an unidentified tipster who saw people throwing boxes over a fence behind the Pinewood Elementary School. The culprits may have gotten into the building by removing a board that had blocked a window broken in a previous burglary.

Orange County deputy sheriffs, who investigated the break-in, searched the school with a trained canine and followed a trail from the building to the site where they arrested James Darrell Rogers Jr., 21, who lives within walking distance of the school. Rogers was in possession of a white bin containing chocolate milk, cheese and salad dressing. He also had spilled milk on his clothes, deputies said.

During the break in, cafeteria coolers were left open and packaged meats scattered on the floor; cartons of chocolate milk were spilled; a window was smashed open; and a freezer door was ripped off its hinges, according to deputies who located a hammer that could have been used to break the window and pry open a metal gate. It had blood on the handle.

A school security officer estimated the loss at more than $10,000, including vandalism and spoiled food. Rogers was held in the Orange County Jail on charges of burglary, criminal mischief, petty theft and trespassing on school grounds.


Authorities Raid Englewood Cliffs Home, Smash $100,000 Milk Crate Theft Ring

A ring that stole and recycled more than $100,000 worth of plastic milk crates was smashed when investigators raided an Englewood Cliffs home and two Fairfield business addresses while arresting a Hackensack man and seven Passaic County associates, authorities said today.

“The operators use stolen crates, reconfigure them and resell them for profit,’’ said Essex County Assistant Prosecutor Nicole Buermann, whose office lead the investigation. “Industry experts say these thefts cost stores millions annually.

Investigators recovered plastic totes and soda pallets stolen from Rite Aid, CVS, Pepsi, Walgreens – even the U.S. Postal Service – all marked with the rightful owner’s company name and a warning against their unauthorized use or theft.

All were seized at a pair of Fairfield facilities operated by a company called Farmplast. Both received the stolen items around the clock from a crew of thieves who operated in New York and New Jersey, Essex authorities said.

Fairfield police had secured the facilities after the search warrants were executed, in fact, when four separate trucks filled with stolen totes pulled up.

Arrested and charged with receiving stolen property were Alfredo DeDios, 53, of Hackensack, Richard Ferreria, 32, of Haledon, and six Paterson men: Armando DeDios, 29, Fernando Marzan, 20, Elvis Fermin, 20, Luis Hernandez, 24, Michael Malave, 19 and Victor Tejada Jr. Additional charges are expected.


Woman Swings Frozen Turkey At Yogurt-Tosser in Supermarket Food Fight


Two women began exchanging punches [and] ended up rolling around on the same floor with the yogurt and bacon.

No one yelled: “FOOD FIGHT!” But, such an exclamation would have been apropos after two groups of women went at it last week near the meat counter at Woodman’s Food Market, 725 S. Gammon Rd.

A 62-year old man was on the phone with 911, trying to call the melee in, when someone chucked a full container of yogurt at his head. It just missed, and he ended up with dairy product on his ball cap as the strawberry yogurt splattered on doors to the butcher area, and onto the floor.

During the fracas, one combatant armed herself with a frozen turkey. That was swung and tossed. A palate holding eight large boxes of bacon was toppled. That happened after two women began exchanging punches. Both ended up rolling around on the same floor with the yogurt and bacon.

The fisticuffs were precipitated by one woman pulling out a canister of pepper spray. That ended up being shot into the eyes of two women. They were engaged in the faceoff with the four others.

Police stopped those who were pepper sprayed as they were about to drive away. One was cited for disorderly conduct. The other food fighters were not immediately located.

The turkey-swinging, bacon-tipping, yogurt-throwing feud evidently revolves around an ongoing dispute over money. Hopefully it can be resolved before any of those involved gather around a turkey again, which could be as soon as next week.

Police: Man Put Prescription Medication In Milkshake With Intention Of Killing Roommate


VERO BEACH, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Michael Gray, 51, was found dead at his home after drinking a deadly milkshake, according to authorities. The Indian River County Sheriff’s Department arrested Timothy E. Gochenour, 41, on homicide charges.

Gochenour rented a room at Gray’s house. Gray’s wife was out of town and asked police to check in on the house because she had concerns over Gochenour.

According to police, Gochenour told the investigators that Gray was a local bar but police then checked inside the house. That is when they found Gray’s body in bed covered with blankets.

Police say that Gochenour told them that he and Gray had been having an argument for several days over rent and privacy issues. Police said that he put a large amount of prescription medications in a milkshake and gave it to Gray with the intention of killing him.

Gochenour does have a police record. He is a registered sex offender. The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office arrested him in 1997 for attempted sexual battery on a victim under 12, burglary of an occupied dwelling with an assault/battery, and unlawful sexual contact with a minor. He was convicted and served three years in prison and six years on probation. The Florida Department of Corrections show that he has been arrested and released since then.

Police Investigate the Case of the Missing Mozzarella


More than five tonnes of stolen cheddar and mozzarella is missing in Sydney.

When police pulled over a car in Sydney’s north-west and discovered 150 kilograms of cheese in the back seat and boot, little did they know it was a small slice of a larger heist. There are still more than five tonnes of stolen cheddar and mozzarella out there, somewhere.

A 31-year-old man was charged on Thursday after the black Ford Focus sedan he was in was pulled over on Marsden Road, Carlingford, and he was allegedly in possession of drugs. When officers searched the car, they also found 150 kilograms of ”King Cheese” in the back seat and boot, which they allege was ”stolen or illegally obtained”.

The rightful owner of the cheese, a long-established food wholesaler in Sydney’s south-west, said the 150 kilograms was only a small portion of the six tonnes of cheese taken when one of his company’s refrigerated trucks was stolen from Bankstown on Wednesday. The loot was mainly mozzarella and cheddar, he said, and was to be delivered to be on-sold for Sydney’s restaurants and takeaway shops.

Who would steal six tonnes of cheese? The owner, who asked not to be named, said he did not know but assumed someone would try and sell it to small stores and eateries at a bargain price.

”There was no way they would have known there was cheese in the back of the truck,” he said. He said there must have been some planning put into the theft, saying you could not just hide the 10-tonne refrigerated truck in a garage.

The owner said the cheese was insured and he had already got his hands on replacement stock. He said he held little hope of finding the rest. ”I would like the truck back though, especially in the lead up to Christmas,” he said. He had no issue with the police destroying the 150 kilograms they found, saying the officers had no way to refrigerate such a large quantity.

It was also not the first time he had been the victim of food theft. ”I had a bloke working for me who was taking a few boxes here and there and selling it on the sly,” he said.

The 31-year-old allegedly caught with the cheese, who is understood to be well-known to police, was refused bail when he appeared in court on Thursday charged with possessing prohibited drugs. He was also charged with having goods in his custody that were suspected of being stolen, in connection with the cheese.

A 38-year-old woman who was driving the car when it was stopped by police in a car park of a memorial reserve at 3.30am has not been charged.

The owner of the cheese said he did not know the man allegedly caught with the 150 kilograms, saying he believed investigations into who might have been involved in the robbery were continuing.

Woman Tried To Wear Cheeseburger As Sandal After Having Sex In Waffle House Parking Lot


A couple having sex in a Georgia Waffle House parking lot was busted on Sunday, according to police. But that isn’t even the weird part.

Loganville authorities said the woman was so drunk that she tried to put a cheeseburger on her foot as if it were a sandal. “I guess that would speak to her level of intoxication,” Assistant Chief of Police Dick Lowry told The Huffington Post. Lowry said the fast food-as-footwear was a first for him.

Rachel Gossett and Frank Lucas were cited in the Nov. 3 incident for public drunkenness and loitering. According to the police report, Lucas blew a .154 into the breathalyzer and Gossett .216.

The two avoided an indecency charge because the pickup truck was in the back of the lot, and their tryst wasn’t so obvious to the public, Lowry said. However it was noticeable enough for someone to complain.

When an officer arrived, he ordered them to put on clothes and show their licenses, the report said. “When the female finally got dressed she attempted to put a cheeseburger on her foot as if it were a sandal,” the officer wrote.

The two face a Jan. 16 court date. Presumably shoes, not strapless meat sandwiches, will be mandatory.

Erotic ‘Spas’ Offer Kinky Cream Cheese Massage

Nov 05, 2013 12:54AM

Malaysian “spas” are dispensing with massage oil in favour of cream cheese in a kinky new offering in the country’s bustling erotic massage industry.

The weekend edition of the Malay-language Harian Metro said reporters from the tabloid discovered that some spas near the capital Kuala Lumpur were offering customers the option of being smeared with cream cheese.

The cheese is then licked from the customer’s body by their scantily-clad “masseuse”, usually a likely sex worker from China, Indonesia or Vietnam, the paper said on Sunday in what it billed as an investigative report on the sex industry.

Prostitution is illegal in predominantly Muslim Malaysia, where conservative attitudes toward sex prevail.

But the country’s media regularly portray a thriving sex industry involving prostitutes from China, Vietnam, Thailand and other less-developed countries in the region, and often disguised as massage operations.

In a follow-up report on Monday, Harian Metro quoted an official in the Kuala Lumpur suburb Subang Jaya, where a spa was reportedly offering the cheese treatment, as saying massage parlours would face stern action if found to be offering “irresponsible activities”.

“This activity is a serious disease in today’s society,” said Subang Jaya town council official Azfarizal Abdul Rashid.

Most Malaysians are relatively conservative Muslim ethnic Malays but the country also has sizable ethnic Chinese and Indian communities. Police raids on prostitution operations are a staple of tabloids, but authorities are widely viewed to generally turn a blind eye to the industry’s activities.
