Taco Bell Drive Through Customer Mistakenly Given $2,000 Dollars Instead Of Her Lunch

Posted by on May 13th, 2010 6 Comments »

Police are searching for a woman who was mistakenly given a bag containing $2,000 dollars at a Taco Bell drive through instead of her lunch.

The manager at the Dayton, Ohio restaurant said it was store policy to keep the daily bank deposit in a Taco Bell bag and pass it along to the manager via the drive through window. An employee had accidentally grabbed the bag with the cash and gave it to the woman instead of the bag with her order.

Security footage shows the woman receiving the bag in her SUV, but it doesn’t show the license plate. Another customer at the drive through described the recipient as a woman in her 20’s with black or brown hair. Police initiated a search of the neighborhood but could not find the woman or her car.

They’re still looking.

Man On Trial For Branding His Children Like Cattle

Posted by on May 12th, 2010 4 Comments »

A man from Washington State is standing trial for allegedly branding his children like cattle, leaving them with permanent scars on their arms, legs, and chest.

Mark Seamands is accused of branding his two sons, ages 13 and 15, and his daughter, 18, with a hot custom-made branding iron.  He will stand trial for abuse of his two sons, but not his daughter, who the court has ruled was old enough to consent to the branding.

He marked his children with the letters “SK,” which stands for Seamands’ Kids. Pam Davis, his ex-wife, was horrified when she discovered the marks 18 months ago. “I don’t know if you have seen an animal being branded, but I have. They squeal; they yell; they scream. It’s nothing pretty.”

As for the kids, they are proud of the brands, and plan to defend their dad when they testify at his trial.

Police have arrested Brandon Poulson, a 22-year-old truck driver from Iowa, on charges that he violently beat an old man because he didn’t like the way he drove.

The 70-year-old victim was driving with his wife, and Poulson was following behind. Poulson began yelling and swearing at the man. Sensing his agitation, the man pulled over to let him pass, but instead of continuing on his way, Poulson allegedly pulled over as well, went up to the older man, and began to violently beat him for “driving like an old man.”

Poulson admitted to police that he beat the man because he was upset with the way he was driving. He is currently being held in custody on a $10,000 bond.
