23 Year Old Armed Robbery Suspect Dashawn Terrell Cochran Used Uber for His Getaway Car in Maryland


23 year old armed robbery suspect, Dashawn Terrell Cochran, appears to have used UBER as his getaway vehicle from the scene of the crime. After having held up a store in Parkville, Maryland, the suspect was seen getting into a the back of a silver Lexus. The Baltimore County Police Department say he pointed a gun at a store employee and demanded that he give him money. When the Baltimore police pulled the drive over, the driver said he was an Uber driver. Imagine that. Cochran was arrested and charged with armed robbery, first-degree assault, second-degree assault and theft less than $1,000. He is being held on $500,000 bail. The Uber driver and another passenger in the vehicle were released, having had nothing to do with the robbery.

I guess they really are everyone’s private driver … even armed robbers


A 23-year-old man suspected of armed robbery tried to take an Uber car to help him get away after he held up a store outside Baltimore, police said.

The suspect, Dashawn Terrell Cochran, was at a store in Parkville, Maryland, early Wednesday morning when he allegedly took a bottle of Tylenol cold medicine to the register, the Baltimore County Police Department said. Police said he then pointed a gun at an employee and demanded money.

Cochran ran from the store with an undisclosed amount of cash, but officers began to track his path, police said.

Cochran was seen getting into the back of a silver Lexus, and when officers pulled the car over, the driver said he was an Uber driver, police said.

Maybe it is the UBER passengers that need all the back ground checks and not just the UBER drivers.

Randy Quaid & His Wife Evi Arrested at Vermont Border, Accused of Fleeing Canada Ahead of His Deportation Hearing


Randy Quaid and his wife Evi were arrested as “fugitives from justice” Friday night at the Vermont and Canada border in an apparent attempt to leave Canada before Quaid’s deportation back to the United States. The two were detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at the Vermont point of entry in Highgate at about 8 p.m. Quaid and his wife were taken into custody by troopers, where a judge set bail at $500,000 each. Randy Quaid had previously been denied permanent residency in Canada.

Randy Quaid was being held at the North West State Correctional Center and Evi Quaid at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility. According to an interview with the AP, the 65-year-old actor said from a detention center in Laval, Quebec, on Wednesday that he would like to resolve his legal issues in California and “move on with my life.” Quaid and his wife fled to Canada because Quaid is wanted in Santa Barbara, California, to face felony vandalism charges filed in 2010 after he and his wife, Evi, were found squatting in a guesthouse of a home they previously owned.

Who knew Quaid’s role as Cousin Eddie from the Vacation films was spot on to his real life persona as a wing-nut?

Randy Quaid and his wife were arrested as “fugitives from justice” Friday night at the border between Vermont and Canada, apparently attempting to leave Canada days before Quaid’s deportation back to the United States, PEOPLE has confirmed.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents detained Quaid and his wife, Evi, at the Vermont point of entry in Highgate at about 8 p.m. local time, according to a press release from state police.

Agents determined the Quaids were “fugitives from justice” from California, where they are wanted in connection with a felony vandalism case.

Who finds it rather ironic that Border patrol is able to arrest these two on the US-Canadian Border but some how agents cannot seem to do the same on the United States-Mexico? Maybe Quaid and his wife should have crossed the Southern border instead.

4 Students at Summerville High School in Tuolumne, CA Arrested for Plotting to Shoot & Kill Fellow Students and Teachers

Just days after a mass shooting at an Oregon community college campus, four students a the Summerville High School in Tuolumne, California were arrested for plotting to shoot and kill their fellow classmates and teachers. The arrests took place on Saturday by police. The murder plot was foiled on Wednesday when a group of students alerted a teacher after they overheard three of the four discussing a plan to open fire on the school. Those arrested had created a hit list of students and faculty members to shoot and as many others as possible.  According to accounts, the teacher then immediately told school administrators, who quickly removed the three from their classrooms and called the police.

Tuolumne County Sheriff James Mele stated, “detectives located evidence verifying a plot to shoot staff and students at Summerville High School. The suspects’ plan was very detailed in nature and included names of would-be victims, locations and the methods in which the plan was to be carried out.” Although the names of the juveniles were not released, the four individuals were all males and were students at Summerville High School. The teens are currently being helf in juvenile hall.

Four Northern California high school students have been arrested in connection with what law enforcement officials called a highly detailed plan to shoot and kill fellow students and teachers, just days after a mass shooting on a community college campus in rural Oregon.

The four, all students at Summerville High School in Tuolumne, Calif., “were going to come on campus and shoot and kill as many people as possible at the campus,” Sheriff James W. Mele of Tuolumne County said at a news conference on Saturday.

Sheriff Mele did not identify the students other than to say all were male juveniles. Tuolumne is about 120 miles east of San Francisco.

Investigators have found no clear motive for the planned attack, Sheriff Mele said, but he said that “the suspects’ plans were very detailed in nature and included names of would-be victims, locations and methods in which the plan was to be carried out.” The students planned to open fire during an event at school, he said, and “were in the process of trying to obtain these weapons.”

Officials said the plot was foiled on Wednesday when a group of students alerted a teacher after they overheard three of the four discussing a plan to open fire on the school.

Merritt is reported to have a previous had a criminal record. Merritt will be arraigned on Saturday.

With Friday’s arrest of Leslie Allen Merritt Jr., 21, law-enforcement officials said they had a suspect in at least four of the shootings in custody — news that brought relief but not necessarily closure.

Arizona Department of Public Safety Director Frank Milstead said Merritt had been linked to at least four of 11 shootings incidents through a gun he owned.

“The weapon and man we believe was responsible for starting this spree is in custody,” Milstead said late Friday at a hastily called news conference.

Milstead spoke only for a few minutes and would not divulge other details, such as a possible motive.

“Are there others out there? Are there copycats? That is possible,” Milstead said.

Ballistics tests linked a weapon owned by the suspect to the first four of the 11 freeway shootings, on Aug. 29 and 31, Milstead said. Investigators had tracked down the weapon at a pawn shop in Phoenix.

Merritt’s Facebook page contains several links to stories about the freeway shootings, as well as several images supporting gun rights and video of him shooting a 9mm handgun.

Before the arrest, Milstead and Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery had labeled the shooter as a domestic terrorist.

Police arrest suspect in string of Phoenix freeway shootings

UPDATE I: Phoenix freeway shooting suspect Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. Says, ‘I’m the wrong guy’.

A landscaper arrested in a series of Phoenix freeway shootings told a judge that authorities have “the wrong guy” as investigators stood by their detective work that traced the gun to the suspect after he took it to a pawn shop.

Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. was charged Saturday with counts including aggravated assault, criminal damage, disorderly conduct, carrying out a drive-by shooting and intentional acts of terrorism.

“All I have to say is I’m the wrong guy. I tried telling the detectives that. My gun’s been in the pawn shop the last two months. I haven’t even had access to a weapon,” he said as he stood handcuffed in a black and white striped jail uniform.

But a charging document released late Saturday night by Maricopa Superior Court said that investigators determined Merritt had not pawned his gun at the time of the incidents.

31 Year Old Joseph ‘Joey’ Meek, Friend of Charleston, SC Church Shooter Dylann Roof Arrested by FBI

31 year old Joseph ‘Joey’ Meek of Red Bank, South Caroina was arrested by the FBI in connection with the Charleston church shooting that left 9 dead at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Joey Meeks opened up his home to Dylann Roof in the weeks before the June killings of nine African-Americans in a Charleston church. Meek told reporters in late June that on June 10, while he, Roof and their friend Christon Scriven were getting drunk on vodka, Roof announced plans to carry out a mass shooting seven days later at the College of Charleston. Should Meek’s have told the authorities and not just blamed it on the alcohol? Meek says that he did not take Dylann Roof serious, hmm … how do you feel know? If Meek is charged with and convicted of making false statements, he could be facing up to 5 years in prison. However, that number rises to 8 years when the false statements concern certain types of crimes, including international or domestic terrorism.

Joey Meek

The man who opened his home to Dylann Roof in the weeks before the June killings of nine African-Americans in a Charleston church has been arrested by the FBI.

Agents picked up Joseph “Joey” Meek Jr., 21, of Red Bank, while he was at work Thursday afternoon, his girlfriend, Lindsey Fry, told The State newspaper shortly afterward.

Meek called her on his cell phone as it was happening, Fry said.

“He just said, ‘They want to talk to me, but I think I’m going to jail,’” she said.

Meek lives in a trailer in Red Bank with his mother, two brothers and Fry, who is 19.

Meek was informed in an Aug. 6 letter from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Columbia that he was a “potential target” of the federal criminal investigation into the slayings of nine parishioners at the historic “Mother” Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.

The letter stated that Meek was under investigation for possible misprision and allegedly making false statements to law enforcement. Both crimes are felonies.

20 year old Joshua Ryne Goldberg was arrested Thursday  in Jacksonville, Florida and charged with plotting to set off an explosion at a 9/11 event. According to court documents, Goldberg was plotting to bomb a 9/11 memorial event,  the Kansas City Stair Climb. Investigators state that he was communicating online with someone he thought was sympathetic to his cause in this terror attack.

Investigators originally thought the suspect was recruiting people to carry out attacks from a location in Australia, reports CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues.

It turns out Goldberg was in the U.S., in a home near Jacksonville, where he was taken into custody. He shares the home in Orange Park with his parents.

According to court documents, he had set his sights on bombing a 9/11 memorial event — the Kansas City Stair Climb.

Investigators said he was communicating online with someone he thought was sympathetic to his cause but who was actually an FBI informant, and the online conversations were being monitored. According to investigators, Goldberg encouraged the informant to build a pressure cooker bomb similar to what was used in the Boston Marathon bombing.

Metro Police Officer Shot in Hand Near Tropicana & Nellis Boulevards in East Las Vegas, NV (Update: Hispanic Suspect in Custody)


There has been yet another shooting of a police officer. This time the shooting occurred at about 12:10 p.m. Sunday, near Tropicana and Nellis boulevards. According to the authorities, a man approached the squad car and fired with a semi-automatic handgun at the two officers inside the vehicle. One officer has hit it the hand and taken to the hospital. The officers then exited the vehicle and were able to apprehend the suspect outside a 7-Eleven.

UPDATE I:  Metro Sgt. John Sheahan said two officers were heading to a disturbance call headed northbound on Tropicana and stopped at a red light to turn westbound on Tropicana when they were approached by a man with a semi-automatic handgun who began firing on them. He said one officer was hit in the hand and the other officer was able to chase the suspect a short distance before apprehending him. Sheahan said it appears that the officers did not fire any shots. The suspect is being questioned at the scene. Officers have been doubled up with two in each car since Friday’s shooting in an order made by Sheriff Joe Lombardo.

UPDATE II: At a news conference in front of UMC earlier today, Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said, “You know we just had another officer shot a couple of days ago. It’s a rough time for our officers. We have already changed some of our deployment strategies as we have two-officer units out there today because of the narrative of violence against police across the country and certainly because of what we have seen here (in Las Vegas). That’s four of my officers that have been shot this year. It gets old. It’s tiring. Those men and women are out there trying to do the best that they can to provide service to this community; certainly the one solace that they can take is the vast majority of this community is behind this police department and we know that.”

You cannot even imagine the anger and rage that I have towards these lawless thugs that would do such a heinous act. Hopefully this POS will be captured soon and seeing that it is Texas will be put to death like he rightfully should. HOW IS THIS NOT A HATE CRIME? This is the definition of a hate crime. This thug needs to be put down like a rabid animal. Folks, it does not get any more heinous than this. It also does not get any more cowardice. This thug shot a police officer when his back was turned, really? What a brave soul you are. Hopefully you will get coming to you all that you rightfully deserve.
