Police in Winter Haven, Florida, are looking for three sweet-tooth thieves. The three men entered a Walmart, went to the candy aisle and selected a large assortment of candy from the shelf. What was on the shelf wasn’t enough, because the suspects asked an employee if there was more candy in the back. The store worker went to the back stock room, retrieved more candy and brought it to the suspects. The men then left the candy aisle and separated through the grocery area briefly, before meeting back up at the doors, exiting without attempting to pay for the merchandise. They made off with $430 worth of candy.

There’s a particularly nasty computer virus that tricks people into paying to download anti-virus software that ultimately doesn’t work. It looks pretty convincing. And sometimes it tries to scare you into paying for a “clean” computer by implying that you have child pornography on your computer. And that’s what happened in Virginia. A 21-year-old man got a popup message with the FBI logo. It said authorities had warrants on file for child porn use. The message was fake, but Jay Riley didn’t know that and instead of paying for the anti-virus software download, he took his computer to authorities — who found photos of underage girls on it.

Teachers in Zambia are threatening to quit over “invisible witches” sleeping with them at night. Educators in Siavonga have packed up their belongings and are ready to flee, claiming “wizards and witches” are forcing them to have sex. A newspaper report says the male teachers complained that they have been having sex with women they cannot see.
