A Connecticut man was arrested after police said he burglarized three condos then called officers to report that the car he allegedly used in the break-ins had been stolen. Police said 33-year-old Geraldo "Tito" Figueroa, of Waterbury, reported late Monday to Fairfield police that his car had been taken.

An officer responding to the burglaries in Old Saybrook, Conn., just hours before said he had spotted Figueroa fleeing the sceene with a pillow case full of items.

Police said a car linked to Figueroa was left at the condo complex with items inside that had been reported stolen there.

Figueroa was arraigned Wednesday on burglary and larceny charges and was ordered held on $300,000 cash bond. It was unclear if Figueroa had hired an attorney.

I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .It's actually a great idea!

Stumbling out of a nightclub and walking home barefoot with aching feet after dancing all night in killer heels could be a thing of the past for women thanks to new vending machines which sell disposable shoes. German student Isabella Fendt came up with the idea "Ballerina to go" -- ballerinas are flat shoes -- after too many nights of aching disco feet.
Machines selling the shoes are already installed in four clubs in the south German city of Munich. A pair of the disposable shoes costs 7 euros ($10) and comes with a bag in which to put the high heels.

Wanted woman flags down police: Am I wanted?
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101009/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_woman_with_warrant

Police in suburban Cincinnati arrested a woman after she flagged an officer down and asked if there were any warrants out for her arrest. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Friday that after Lockland police officer Dan Lyons informed 44-year-old Selma Elmore she did have an outstanding warrant, the woman ran off. The chase ended when Elmore pushed Lyons into a building, injuring his elbow.

Other officers responding to a call for backup later apprehended the woman.

Elmore, wanted for allegedly failing to pay a fine as a result of a drug conviction, now faces a charge of resisting arrest.

Hamilton County Jail records did not list an attorney for Elmore.

Celebrity's cereal box lists sex line instead of charity
http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20101001/od_nm/us_cereal_sexline
The telephone number pasted on boxes of cereal named for Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco was supposed to be for a charity -- but mistakenly directed callers to a sex line, the player's agent said on Thursday.

"The wrong number was given by the Feed the Children charity," Ochocinco's agent Robert Bailey said. "It's a shame because it's a good cause."

The outspoken Ochocinco said he was confident the mistake -- an 800 area code was substituted for 888 -- would be corrected by PBL Sports, the marketing company behind "Ochocincos" cereal.

A portion of the $5 price of each box goes to the Feed The Children organization, according to PBL's website.

In a tweet, the football player had directed fans to his own website and urge…
