FROM SARAH PEPPER
Why in the world would you taunt police officers? Police in Friendswood were conducting a vehicle search in the 5000 block of FM 2351 around 2:30am. That’s when 43 year old Melvin Wayne Cook stopped his car and started yelling swear words at them. Then Melvin sped off and did a doughnut in the middle of the street before charging towards officers. Cops jumped out of the way and started chasing after him. Friendswood PD eventually caught him and arrested Mr. Cook. See his mugshot HERE!!!
Have you ever stolen anything from work? A 34 year old man named Robert Napolitan is behind bars after stealing 300,000 pennies from his boss. That’s $3,000 for those of us that were not math majors. Evidently his boss kept a barrel full of pennies the warehouse. So over Labor Day weekend when no one was there Robert stole the barrel with a hand cart and threw it in the back of his truck. But he was sloppy or the barrel was too heavy. Because he left a trail of pennies from the warehouse all the way to his house. So it wasn’t hard for the laws to find out who stole the money.
