The U.S. Army says it has punished four Nashville-area recruiters.
It all stems from our exclusive NewsChannel 5 investigation of the recruiters and their Dishonorable Deceptions.
The Army’s announcement came in a news release, headlined ”Army recruiters punished.”
Those recruiters were caught on hidden camera, urging a prospective recruit to lie about his mental health history.
“There’s ways around the system,” one recruiter told our undercover producer. “You’ve probably seen TV reports and all that. More or less, me and you are the only ones that know it.” (more…)

An accused robber got more than he bargained for during a pharmacy holdup: a bag of loot, plus a tracking device that led to his arrest.
Unbeknownst to the thief, the pharmacy manager who was held up at gunpoint slipped a GPS unit into the gunman’s pillowcase — along with $5,000 from the store safe, according to records filed today in U.S. District Court in Detroit.
The suspect, Tevin Clay, was arrested shortly after the incident, along with the getaway driver, Adrian Roberts, records show. Their ages and hometowns are not known.
This all happened on April 11, just before 10 p.m. at the Rite Aid on South Dort Highway in Burton. According to an affidavit filed in federal court, a masked gunman in a hooded sweatshirt entered the store and ordered the manager to open the safe and place the money inside a pillow case. (more…)

LEHIGH ACRES -
A stolen car led Lee County deputies to a string of burglaries – all thanks to a GPS tracking device. The device was able to pinpoint every spot the car stopped, which happened to be the site of other burglaries.
The Lehigh Acres crime spree was stopped dead in its tracks.
“The detective was able to compare the GPS locations of the stolen vehicle to various vehicle burglaries,” said David Velez, with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
It began with a Scion being stolen from a home off Beth Stacey Boulevard.
In the middle of the night, the crooks got the keys from an unlocked truck parked in the same driveway and their joyride began.
Little did they know their every move was being tracked. (more…)

A thief who allegedly grabbed the purse of a 50-year-old woman in Australia had his plans for running away quickly foiled for a moment as he sprinted right through a glass door, knocking himself out. Not knowing the man was a purse snatcher, bystanders even helped him up and he escaped.
The store’s surveillance camera caught it all.
The incident happened in Perth, accordin to 3News out of New Zealand. Shop owner Greg Rice too didn’t know initially that the person slamming into the glass door was a thief.
“I didn’t know what went on, really. I just thought somebody ran into the door, but as it turned out, when I saw how keen he was to get away, we realised something was up,” he told 3News.
The video shows the alleged thief breaking through the glass door, followed by concerned bystanders trying to help him before an accomplice tried to drag him to a waiting car.
Also caught on the CCTV camera was Jake Adams, owner of a nearby tattoo shop, going after the suspect.
“He said ‘I’ve got a gun, I’ve got a gun, I’m gonna shoot you, I’m gonna shoot you’,” Adams recalled. “So, I picked the guy up [the thief] in front of me, like they do in the movies and held him in front of me.” Adams eventually let the alleged robber go.
Ultimately, the thief and his accomplice escaped in a green Lexus, which 3News reported police saying was also stolen. The men are still at large.

Members of a gang who abused shoppers, threatened staff and chased children before ripping phones and iPads off walls in 42 stores across London have been jailed for a total of 11 years.
CCTV footage from one attack on their £500,000 crime spree shows a mother sprinting to protect her terrified son as the eight men swamped and then burgled a Carphone Warehouse.
On each occasion the criminals caused ‘total mayhem’ when they stormed high street shops to wrench high-value items from the walls in a series of violent ‘steaming’ raids.
In scenes reminiscent of the recent London Riots, phones and tablet computers worth a total of £143,000 were ripped out by the thieves, while the attacks caused more than £50,000 worth of damage.
The criminals, some of whom were just 14, used the ‘steaming’ technique, where they rob shops or mug individuals by swamping them and threatening them with violence.
The clean-up operation after the raids, which forced some stores to close temporarily, resulted in Carphone Warehouse losing a total of more than £500,000, the court heard.
Passing sentence, Judge Peter Testar said: ‘This conspiracy to burgle consists of a series of offences in which a number of young men rushed into branches of Carphone Warehouse and simply grabbed whatever they were able to and ran away.
‘In some cases, efforts were made to disguise appearances, but in many cases the attitude of those who committed these offences was brazen.
‘Those who have joined the conspiracy have applied themselves to a criminal operation of which the overall effect was very great.
‘The targeting of particular premises and the mob handed means of offending indicates greater harm.
‘The success (of the conspiracy) depended on force of numbers and shock.
‘Many staff and customers were very frightened. (more…)

CCTV footage has been released showing thieves stealing from police ‘capture cars’ used as bait to snare cheeky crooks.
The previously unseen footage from West Midlands Police shows offenders unwittingly breaking into cars fitted with hidden cameras and sensors which alert officers when intruders strike.
One clip – filmed via a discreet micro-camera – shows a man sneak inside an unlocked car and swipe a lap-top bag placed on the passenger seat.
He covers his hand before opening the door so as not to leave prints but, unbeknown to him, the lap-top was fitted with a tracking device while in-car cameras caught crystal clear images.
He was soon caught and jailed for eight weeks.
The footage will be shown tomorrow (Wednesday) morning on the BBC1 programme Caught Red Handed which shows ingenious ways West Midlands Police are trapping offenders and cutting crime.
PC Simon Williams, from Birmingham South Police Offender Management Team, said: “It’s not the wisest criminal move to break into a police car… but that’s exactly what many unwitting criminals are doing! (more…)

Police in North Carolina say suspected burglar who returned to a retired widow’s home to apologize for robbing her found himself staring down the barrel of her gun.
WCRBTV.com reports that Nathaniel Leatherwood, 26, of Georgia, allegedly stole a shotgun, cell phone and medication from Sue Johnson’s Cherokee County home.
When Leatherwood returned to apologize for the alleged burglary, Johnson had no intention of letting him get away, according to the station.
“So I just pulled my gun out of my pocket and said I’m calling the sheriff’s office,” Johnson tells the station. “They’re going to come pick you up. I’m not going to let this happen to an old, retired lady who lives alone.”
Sheriff Keith Lovin, who had recently taught a gun course at Johnson’s church, arrived on the scene and arrested Leatherwood, according to the report. He says he was relieved Johnson wasn’t harmed.
“A medical emergency or whether it’s a fire, whether it’s an intruder, whether it’s a natural disaster, I think sometimes citizens sometimes get complacent,” Lovin tells WCRBTV.com.
