A 17-Foot-Long Snake Is On The Loose
The residents of Meadow Lakes, Alaska are understandably a bit concerned. A 17-foot-long pet python has somehow gone missing.
The serpent’s owner has gone door-to-door warning neighbors that the bright-yellow and white animal is on the loose. Officials recommend small pets be brought inside while the hunt is on for the snake.

STUPID CRIMINALS:
911 dispatcher heard snoring on the job gets suspended:
Being a 911 dispatcher is a draining job, but that doesn’t mean you can take a nap mid-shift. Jasmin Thomas was caught sleeping on the job after she was heard snoring after picking up a call. What’s more, this isn’t the first time she was in hot water for catching some z’s. Fortunately for her, and maybe unfortunately for the people of Cleveland, she was only suspended for six days and was able to keep her job.
Man steals woman’s gaming consoles at gunpoint after sleeping together:
Kareem Mutcherson is the worst kind of person you could meet on an online dating site: a criminal. The 23-year-old from Florida slept with a woman he met on Plenty of Fish only to later return to her house, hold all the occupants at gunpoint, and steal stole several gaming consoles. What’s more, Mutcherson has a history with the victim’s family. Think this crook can’t get any more scummy? Not only did he pistol whip the victim’s 68-year-old dad, but it turns out he had a child waiting in his getaway car. For what it’s worth, Mutcherson claims the victim gave him those gaming consoles as gifts. Police aren’t buying it and charged him with robbery with a firearm and aggravated battery on a person 65 years of age or older.
