Suspect’s motel room number printed on back of note handed to bank teller

You can’t blame a guy for trying to get some. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take, they say.

Longwood [Florida] police officers arrested a man accused of attempting to rob a Wells Fargo bank on Friday.

Investigators said they were tipped off to the suspect’s whereabouts after it was observed that the motel name and room number where he was staying were printed on the back of the hold-up note handed over to the bank teller.

According to Longwood Police, it didn’t take long for officers to spot 49-year-old Craig Joseph Naughtin walking southbound on U.S. Highway 17/92 in the direction of the Lake Fairy Motel.

Investigators said Naughtin has a history of passing notes at banks and has a 2015 arrest by the FBI for a similar crime in Pompano Beach, Florida.

Naughtin was arrested on charges of attempted robbery and attempted grand theft. Officers said no money was taken from the bank.

2 Columbus narcotics officers federally charged for allegedly helping distribute fentanyl

Two Columbus [Ohio] narcotics officers are accused of distributing fentanyl and attempting to smuggle other drugs, according to a release from the United States Department of Justice.

Officers John Kotchkoski, 33, and Marco Merino, 44, were arrested on Tuesday.

According to the DOJ, both officers were involved in the distribution of seven and a half kilograms of fentanyl. Additionally, Merino reportedly accepted bribes to protect the transportation of cocaine, it reads in the release.

Merino reportedly intended to gain citizenship in Mexico by laundering drug proceeds, court records show. During his efforts, he allegedly attempted to recruit a confidential informant, offering law enforcement protection in the process.

Between March and September of this year, Merino accepted $44,000 in cash in exchange for transporting 27 kilograms of what he thought was cocaine. Instead, court documents show the transactions were being controlled by the FBI as part of its investigation.

Records show Kotchkoski worked with Merino to help the transportation process.

Footage captured by 10TV shows FBI agents and Columbus police going in and out of Merino’s Columbus home, collecting boxes of evidence on Tuesday.

In June and Aug., Merino distributed the fentanyl provided by Kotchkoski, with an estimated value of $60-80,000.

“Possessing with intent to distribute 400 grams or more of fentanyl is a federal crime punishable by 10 years and up to life in prison. Federal Program Bribery is punishable by up to 10 years in prison,” it reads in the release.

Sam Shamansky, Kotchkoski’s lawyer shared his thoughts about the case with 10TV.

“One of these police officers already openly acknowledged that he’s guilty and now he’s cooperating and trying to dig himself out of a hole. We know that for sure, right? Because people who are in trouble will generally do whatever they need to do to get out of trouble,” he said.

Georgia Homeowner Found Home Invader’s Corpse on Porch After Two Dogs Mauled Him to Death: Authorities

Two dogs mauled an alleged intruder to death last week at a home in Georgia, authorities say. The dead man’s body was discovered on the homeowner’s porch after the suspected mauling incident.

According to law enforcement, Alex Binyam Abraha, 21, made his way into the two-bedroom house located in a rural area of Newnan, Ga. on Sept. 24.

Coweta County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived on the scene sometime after 10:30 a.m. in response to a report that someone was dead on the property. That someone was Abraha; his corpse had been found by the resident of the property that same morning.

According to The Newnan Times-Herald, the sheriff’s department worked with homicide investigators from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation — though the case was eventually not ruled a homicide.

On Wednesday, the newspaper reported that a medical examiner with the GBI ruled that Abraha’s cause of death was mauling, citing CCSO Investigator Toby Nix. By definition and practice, a homicide legally cannot occur when a human being is killed by a non-human animal.

According to law enforcement, evidence suggests that the mauled man made entry into the home before quickly encountering the two large dogs.

Doug Evans, a journalist with local Fox affiliate WAGA-TV, shared photos of the canines late Wednesday afternoon via Twitter:

According to Evans’ WAGA-TV report, investigators say that Abraha died outside the home after gaining entry and being attacked. The homeowner told law enforcement that he does not know the man who is said to have entered his home and died there — and that he had no idea why the man gained entry in the first place.

The outlet also reports that authorities do not anticipate filing any criminal charges against the person who lives in the home on Walt Sanders Road in north Coweta County.

Multiple news organizations have reported that the animals believed to have killed the man were seized by authorities as part of their initial investigation. The dogs are currently in the custody of Coweta County Animal Services, which operates under the auspices of the county’s Department of Corrections.

There is currently no word on what fate awaits the two animals. The prospect of the dogs not making their way home, however, has been criticized by a number of people on social media.

Law&Crime reached out to various local and state authorities for additional details on this story, but no response was immediately forthcoming at the time of publication.

House Budget Chair Yarmuth: $3.5 Trillion in Spending ‘Is Pretty Inconsequential’ – ‘Government Can Afford Anything’

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” House Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth (D-KY) said that $3.5 trillion in spending under the reconciliation bill “is pretty inconsequential when you consider all the benefits to the American people,” and “The federal government can afford anything that it feels it needs to do.”

Yarmuth said Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) “has no understanding of how the federal government monetary system works. When he compared it yesterday to his household income, that has no relevance to what we can do. It’s not a question of what we can afford. The federal government can afford anything that it feels it needs to do. And right now, that’s what we ought to be focused on.”

He added, “It’s $3.4 trillion over 10 years. We’re going to spend twice as much during that time on defense. If you take the entire — add up all of the things that we’re proposing to do, it would be essentially about 5% more than we will spend otherwise. We’re going to spend $61 trillion over the next 10 years. So, to add another $3.4 or [$3.5] trillion to it, is very — I think is pretty inconsequential when you consider all the benefits to the American people, and these are benefits that will last for decades.”

The House Budget Chair apparently doesn’t know how the economy works. So…we got that going for us. Which is nice.

    For a good time meet me at the Dew Tale Motel, just off State Road 23…on the Frontage Road.

    Everybody knows that the cops always have the best dope. /s/ And that the feds have even better dope.

    Them good boy pits didn’t take any bull from the perp.

    These self serving, money grubbing, power hungry POS politicians STILL fail to realize that the gruberming has NO money. It is OUR money that they are stealing to redistribute to themselves and their lackeys. We done fought (and won) one war against an oppressive taxing grubermint that gave us no representation. Is another on the way?

    = Georgia Homeowner Found Home Invader’s Corpse on Porch After Two Dogs Mauled Him to Death – Dogs are evidently much smarter than local law-enforcement as these dogs probably knew that Abraha,had several active warrants in Fulton County at the time of his tenderizing.

    Lets see if each person (330 Million) in the US share of the the approximate 26.7 trillion in the national debt is roughly $80,000. I’ll listen to that dip$hit politician when he writes a check that clears and is deposited into the treasury for himself, his spouse and each of his children and grand children.

    Until then he should STFU.
