An Indiana man was arrested over the weekend after inquiring at a local business about his lost meth.
Christian Horton, proud citizen of Madison and an early frontrunner for 2023’s Criminal Mastermind of the Year Award, allegedly misplaced his bag of methamphetamine last Saturday. Later that same day, an employee of a local business whose bathroom Horton had patronized found the drugs and called police.
That’s where the matter probably would have ended, if Horton weren’t a complete and total idiot.
The twenty-seven year old apparently decided to retrace his steps in search of his stash and soon returned to the unnamed business – where he was caught on security cameras asking if anyone had, perhaps, turned in his crank to the Lost and Found.
Police caught up with Horton via a traffic stop the next day. He was in possession of more meth at the time of his arrest.
Horton’s initial hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
An Indianapolis man is accused of murdering his childhood best friend in an argument over a woman. And, police say, he wore a court-ordered GPS monitor to the crime scene, documenting his presence.
According to reports, 29-year-old Andre Johnson was wearing a GPS bracelet due to a previous criminal conviction when he drove to Indy’s Carriage House East Apartments last Sunday night. After lying in wait for two hours, Johnson allegedly ambushed his childhood best friend Marlin Kiser, also 29, firing at least eight shots at the man before fleeing. Kiser, a father of three, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Unfortunately for Johnson, IMPD detectives were able to locate security camera footage showing the shooter leaving the scene in a 2006 Ford F-150 truck that they were later able to tie to him. Even more unfortunately for the accused, he apparently failed to take his own GPS monitor into account when committing the murder. Police say the data provided by the monitor proves he was in the area for two hours prior to the shooting.
Johnson is being held without bond in the Marion County Jail. Although he’s been booked on a preliminary charge of murder, formal charges are still pending.
Back in March of 2014, former Notre Dame student Brian McCurren got a little too intoxicated and broke into a South Bend spa. Once inside Theraputic Indulgence, he caused thousands of dollars of damage then ate all of their Hot Pockets.
According to police, Brian McCurren made several break-in attempts before successfully throwing a 100-pound flowerpot through the door. Once inside the spa’s breezeway, he then found a hammer and tunneled his way through the drywall into the main part of the business.
After reenacting digDug and discharging a fire extinguisher for unknown reasons, Brian was a very hungry boy who decided it was a good time to make himself a snack or three. He tried to make macaroni and cheese but burned it, setting off the fire alarm. Then he ate all of the spa’s Hot Pockets, which begs the question what kind of spa serves Hot Pockets? Finally, he attempted to eat a plate of drumsticks but passed out on top of them first, which is where police found him.
“The way I understand it,” Sara ros Frazier, owner of the spa said, “he had a grin on his face and he had no idea where he was or what he did.”
