In what must be described as my favorite crime of the week, police in Whitehall report that on Wednesday a man entered the Columbus Metro Federal Credit Union on Main Street. He demanded and received money from a teller before fleeing. (No one was apparently hurt.) I know what you’re saying….”if only there was some piece of evidence, a clue as to this man’s identity so that police could try to identify him, track him down and make him pay for his crime.”

But wait…

selfiebandit…there is a clue, something that the suspect inadvertently left behind at the bank. Ready? The suspect in the case accidentally left behind his cell phone. <FAIL> It was recovered and police found that it was loaded with selfies. <DOUBLE FAIL>

So far, authorities have not publicly identified the suspect, but if you see this guy, give them a call. 614 237 6333  (jj)

Columbus Humane agents seized about 100 reptiles, more than 90 dogs and puppies, and more than 50 livestock animals (turkeys, goats, pigs) from the Petting Zoo Pet Shop on West Broad Street and the owner’s residence on Demorest Road, reports 10TV.

The rescue and recover mission was the culmination of a months-long investigation into multiple complaints of improper caring of animals.

Columbus Humane will soon make available a list of supplies needed to care for the surviving animals.

Once the owner is in custody, charges will be filed.

We are proud of our team and all of our partner agencies as we work to hold these animal abusers accountable. Franklin…
