Officials in Parma, Ohio, said a traffic camera was mistakenly installed — by another city’s police department. A representative for Parma City Hall said the traffic camera put up by the Cleveland Police on the Parma side of the border is illegal in the city because Parma ordinances only allow for photo enforcement in school zones.

A group of high school students from California were arrested this week after allegedly throwing a party in the backyard of a multimillion-dollar mansion without the homeowner’s knowledge. An investigation into the incident by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department resulted in the arrest of 14 minors and one 18-year-old. According to authorities, after learning about homeowner’s absence, the home invaders took to Twitter to promote the impromptu party. At some point during the festivities, attendees broke into the mansion and made off with several high-priced items.

A 23-year-old Massachusetts man who had recently started work as a security guard at Macy’s has been accused of doing the exact opposite of his job description. Police say that the guard and three accomplices, including his younger brother, tried to steal 83 items worth a total of $4,800. Police received an anonymous tip that the guard was the head of a shoplifting scheme, so they used a simple enough method to figure out who his accomplices might be: they looked at his Facebook friends, then watched store visitors to see whether they recognized anyone.
