Three Trespassers Were Arrested After Locking Themselves in a Former Jail Cell
It isn’t often that people are arrested for breaking INTO jail.
There’s a place in St. Louis called the Medium Security Institution, which used to be a city jail . . . but it was shut down last year, and it’s sat empty ever since.
And last Thursday, three men broke into the place.
It sounds like they were messing around, until they accidentally locked themselves in a jail cell. They couldn’t get out, so they called 911.
The police showed up, “rescued” them from the cell, and then promptly arrested them for trespassing.
The cops are still investigating what the men did, and there could be additional charges of property damage, burglary, and stealing. It isn’t often that people are arrested for breaking INTO jail.
Need more stupid criminal news? What about the case of the six million dollar toilet?
Four men in England got charged for stealing a $6 million gold toilet. An Italian artist made it. It was on display when it went missing in 2019.
It’s not everyday you get a story like this, I just hope it’s not a pile of crap. Let’s see what you think?
Four men in England just got arrested for stealing a $6 million gold toilet. The theft happened four years ago, but they just got charged. A conceptual artist from Italy made it out of 18-karat gold and named it “America”. It’s supposed to be a commentary on unbridled capitalism or something
It was originally on display at the Guggenheim in New York. You could wait in line to actually go in and use it. The time limit was three minutes. It eventually got moved to a place in England called Blenheim Palace. It’s a World Heritage Site, and also where Winston Churchill was born.
The golden commode vanished in the middle of the night in September of 2019, and authorities have been searching for it ever since. All four men are between the ages of 35 and 39. They’re facing charges for burglary and conspiracy to transfer criminal property. Sadly, police still don’t know where the toilet is. But chances are it’s no longer a toilet. They think the guys melted it down long ago to sell the raw gold.
