Remington Model 700

Shots fired by owner in Riverside jewelry store smash-and-grab

by: Jas Kang
What began as a regular work day turned into a chaotic one at Geneva Jewelry at Canyon Crest Town Center in Riverside.

At around 11 a.m. Saturday, two robbers wearing masks and hoodies followed a customer into the store and began smashing the display cases with hammers while loading up the merchandise into their bags.

“They walked in nonchalantly and just pulled out the hammers and started smashing,” employee Michaelangelo Torchia told KTLA’s Sara Welch. “It was super terrifying but I mean, we are pushing through.”

Torchia’s father was working at the counter when the suspects entered and began smashing the display cases. That’s when he walked over to a back room and retrieved his firearm. He then several fired shots into the floor to scare off the thieves.

“Once they got scared, they fell to the floor,” Michaelangelo said. “They ran out.”

Pressing business elsewhere, right.

SAN ANTONIO — Nestled on a rise just east of the meandering Salado Creek, Victoria’s Black Swan Inn has been welcoming guests for all kinds of special events for years.

The 1867 mansion hosts romantic weddings and market days. When the sun sets, they say spirits are likely to come out for paranormal tours.

But what happened early last Friday was scarier than most ghost stories.

“It was 1:18 in the morning,” Owner Jo Rivera said. “I heard a crack. I got up and I’m looking out the windows and I could see lights and like shadow movement happening outside.”

Breathless reporting meets outraged proggy. Someone should do something!

what cheat code did the guy use in 2nd story to make his head so big?


The Bulwer-Lytton fiction contest always gets a treasure trove of bad writing. Example:
As an ornithologist, George was fascinated by the fact that urine and feces mix in birds’ rectums to form a unified, homogeneous slurry that is expelled through defecation, although eying Greta’s face, and sensing the reaction of the congregation, he immediately realized he should have used a different analogy to describe their relationship in his wedding vows.

S#&t slurry is an apt analogy for modern investigative journalism.


Store owner shoulda put those rounds into the perps, instead of the floor.

Punk ass kids are gonna punk ass. They’re very lucky that the Inn Owner didn’t go ahead and do society a favor and blow them away.

The video? FAFO! The narrative referred to the perp as a “victim” and the dumbass had taken an empty weapon to a gun fight.

I believe it was the Bolivians who felt that Che was worth more to them dead than alive. Josh Randall was unavailable for comment.

Who doesn’t love a Remington 700…in any caliber? And now, soon, Remingtons will be especially “Peachy”.

Back in the early 1970’s, I bought a 700 and parkerized the barrell over my kitchen stove and added a leatherwood scope.
