Well this is a new one.
The cops and U.S. Marshals in Florida were looking for a 39-year-old fugitive named Krystle Lee Anderson last Tuesday, and they had a lead that she was staying at her boyfriend's house. He's a 48-year-old named John Carr in Winter Haven, Florida.
Krystle doesn't have LEGS . . . and when authorities went to the house, they spotted John trying to cram Krystle into a plastic storage bin.
It's not clear what the plan was . . . like, were they going to put her on a shelf with the Christmas decorations and old DVDs and hope the cops wouldn't notice?
Anyway, they were both arrested.
Krystle lost her legs in a police shootout back in 2015, when she held up a Burger King. She pointed a gun at the cops, they shot her, and apparently her legs had to be amputated as a result. Her gun turned out to be a BB gun.
But she never showed in court after that to face her kidnapping and assault charges, and there's been a warrant out for her ever since.
(Here's her mugshot. She looks weirdly like B.J. Noak from "The Office".)
I'll never get why people think spray-painting someone's name on public property proves their love. How is graffiti romantic? But this takes it to a whole new level of dumb . . .
Earlier this week, a 28-year-old woman named Brittany Ann Clenney took a can of purple spray paint to a new park that recently opened in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. (About 70 miles east of Pensacola.)
And she caused $10,000 in damages by covering the place in love messages for her boyfriend, John.
She spray-painted stuff on the side of a wooden dock that was just installed . . . on some big rocks next to it . . . on the side of a wall . . . and on a giant column for a huge overhead bridge.
But unfortunately for Brittany, the cops were easily able to figure out who did it . . . because she used John's FULL NAME in one of the messages.
It said, quote, "John Ryan Wilson, you stole my heart. And I love it." Then one of her other messages was signed "Brittany Ann."
The cops tracked her down on Tuesday, and she still had purple paint on one of her arms. She's facing a felony charge for criminal mischief.

I guess you never know when the rhythm is gonna get ya.
Earlier this month, a guy named David Seale broke into a law firm in Fresno, California. And after he got into the lobby, something must've come over him . . . because he stopped what he was doing for nine seconds to DANCE.
The security camera in the lobby got a perfect shot of him popping and locking . . . maybe popping the lock to the door inspired him? Then he went back to his break-in.
He wound up stealing a laptop and a bunch of keys . . . and the cops tracked him down quickly and arrested him.
He was charged with burglary.
(WFLA) - Chili's Bar and Grill has revealed a data breach that happened at some of its restaurants and may have impacted customers earlier this year.
The restaurant chain released a statement on Saturday to let customers know about a "data incident" that may have resulted in "unauthorized access or acquisition of your payment card data."
According to the statement, Chili's was made aware Friday that some payment card information was compromised at certain restaurants. They believe the data incident happened between March and April of this year but say they are still trying to assess it.
Right now, the chain believes malware was used to access payment card information, including credit or debit card numbers and cardholder names, from payment systems in certain Chili's restaurants.
The statement does make it clear that not all guests were impacted and no personal information such as social security numbers, dates of birth and ID numbers were compromised.
Once Chili's was notified, the company says it immediately activated its response plan and began working with third-party forensic experts to investigate what happened. Law enforcement was also notified of the incident.
Chili's says it is working to provide fraud resolution and credit monitoring services for guests who may have been impacted.
The company is advising customers to monitor and check bank and credit card statements. If you notice any suspicious activity, you should contact your bank immediately. You can also contact the nationwide credit-reporting agencies to add a fraud alert statement to your credit file and place a security freeze on your credit account.
Chili's says it will provide the most up-to-date information on this website.
MERKEL, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - Merkel police are searching for two suspects who allegedly stole a vehicle and used a stolen credit card for fuel.
According to the Merkel Police Department, a victim returned home after running an errand at 7:45 am Saturday morning. The victim told police they would only be in the home for a few minutes, so the keys were left in the ignition. When the victim returned to the vehicle, it was gone.
"Suspects are also believed to have entered the victims open garage as well before leaving in the 2012 GMC Sierra," according to a press release from MPD.
OnStar was able to track the vehicle in Stamford. The Stamford Police Department and Haskell County Sheriff's Office assisted in recovering the vehicle at Wal-Mart, but the suspects fled.
"Prior to abandoning the vehicle, the two suspects were caught on camera in another involved vehicle and using a stolen credit card for fuel and items in the store," the press release states.
Authorities believe the suspects traveled north on Highway 277 toward Wichita Falls. The suspects were last seen driving a 2010-2013 Ford Explorer with possible paper tags. The vehicle is dark in color, possibly green or black, with a paper affixed to the front passenger side window.
Police say the credit card information obtained indicates it was last used at approximately 12:00-1:00 pm in Seymore, Texas.
Police in Sugarland, Texas have released body camera footage of a rescue that took place over the weekend.
Police say witnesses called 911 just before 6:30 a.m. Saturday (10/5) when they saw a car jump a curb at a high rate of speed and accelerate off an embankment and into a suburban Houston lake. Police say the woman in the car also called 911 as her car sank.
Officers arrived within minutes and three immediately jumped into the lake, which is known to have alligators and snakes. The video shows police smashing a window out and pulling the woman out of the car and helping her to the shoreline.
Shortly after the woman was rescued, the car sank below the surface of the lake, police say.
The woman in the car was not injured and told police she had fallen asleep and lost control of the vehicle.

SMART FINANCIAL CENTRE AT SUGAR LAND
SUGAR LAND, TX
his guy is either the BOLDEST criminal we've seen in a while, or the dumbest. There's no third option.
A 24-year-old guy named Tayvon Wilson went to a Walmart in Columbus, Georgia last week . . . picked up a 55-inch Samsung TV . . . and walked out of the store through the car department without paying.
But a 55-inch TV is pretty heavy and bulky, and apparently he was having trouble carrying it as he walked home.
So he saw two police officers and asked them if they'd give him . . . and his TV . . . a ride home. Wow.
That was right around when the cops got a call from the Walmart about the missing TV. They connected the dots . . . and Tayvon was arrested for shoplifting.
(Here's his mugshot.)
This is one of those moments that HAS to make someone re-evaluate what their life has become.
There's a 26-year-old woman named Angelique Sanchez from Aurora, Colorado, and she was trying to get a job at a health clinic last week. She needed to take a drug test for the job . . . and apparently, Angelique knew she'd fail.
So . . . she got her hands on someone else's pee. But she knew it had to be WARM or the testers would know she'd smuggled it in . . . so she took it to a 7-Eleven before her test to heat it up in their microwave.
And . . . it EXPLODED.
So Angelique bolted, and the 7-Eleven clerk found a bunch of yellow liquid dripping from the microwave. He realized what it was and called the cops . . . and they tracked Angelique down at her job interview down the street.
She's facing one count of damaging property . . . and, spoiler alert, now that the health clinic knows about this story she's PROBABLY not getting that job.

This isn't the first guy to forget his anniversary and have to scramble to make something happen. It just doesn't sound like he scrambled hard enough . . . and his wife might be a crazy person.
A 41-year-old near Tampa named Ronnie Alexander woke up last Wednesday, and immediately got in a fight with his wife Carol because he forgot it was their wedding anniversary.
Luckily he had to go to work. Which gave him a chance to plan something for LATER in the day.
But when he got home from work, he showed up with a SINGLE ROSE. And he said he was GOING to book a hotel somewhere for the weekend. But it doesn't sound like he'd actually booked anything yet.
Shortly after that, Carol LOST IT . . . hit him multiple times . . . and he ended up with scratches on his neck and chest.
When police questioned her, she admitted that she, quote, "flipped the [S-word] out" on him. She's facing charges for misdemeanor domestic battery.
