Sounded Like A Good Idea At The Time

two teens burn down police station to join mate in jailHow do two teens from Manitoba get to visit their mate in a Winnipeg jail for free? Hmm, well setting light to the  Royal Canadian Mounted Police station pretty much guarantees it. The two teens aged 13 and 14 wanted to be flown to Winnipeg to see their buddy who was being held on arson charges. The judge only granted one of the punks their wish,  the youngest didn’t have any priors so was given bail. Hmm, maybe his parents will drive them.

There Goes The Neighborhood

My Bad?

What’s worse than a 3 year old with a blow torch? Hmm, just about nothing! Police are investigating the trail of destruction left by a toddler  allegedly  wielding a handheld blowtorch. The little snowflake,wearing  only a tee, was reportedly seen walking down Route 388 in Shenango with his trusty blowtorch. When the smoke settled he had set fire to his garage,  burned a neighbor’s porch swing, a knob on a septic tank, a broom , a sliding door and singed a gas grill. When the police eventually found the little flame thrower and took him home nobody answered the door. Evidently mom was asleep having worked a night shift. Bless!

Hmm, there goes any chance of reconciliation but you do get an arson, violation of a protection order and criminal mischief  charge for your troubles!
