Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"

"ROWAN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Salisbury Police Captain Sheila Lingle admits it is one of the strangest shoplifting cases she's seen recently. A couple reportedly called 911 with a fake shooting as a distraction to keep officers busy while they shoplifted from Walmart.

According to the report, a woman called 911 just after 7:00 a.m. Tuesday to report that someone had been shot at a business on the corner of Long Street and Bringle Ferry Road. The caller said that "a woman was down."

The call sparked a large response from police and emergency workers, but nothing was found and witnesses in the area said they had not seen anything unusual or heard any gunshots.

Mark "Mensa Master" Shrader and Erin Shrader

At the same time over on Arlington Street in the Walmart, police say 33-year-old Mark Shrader, Jr and 32-year-old Erin Maureen Shrader, from China Grove, were filling up a shopping cart with items.

Just moments earlier, Erin Shrader reportedly borrowed a cell phone from a Walmart employee.

The employee overheard her calling 911 to report the shooting on Long Street. According to police, the employee thought the incident was odd, and when she got the phone back, took it to her manager. When they looked at the call history, it showed that the last number called was only three digits: 911.

Walmart called police and then started watching the Shraders. According to the report, they had filled up a shopping cart, but realized they were being watched, so they left the cart and walked out of the store.

Police say they couple then went to their car, which was parked beside the store. That's when the Shraders took items from beneath their shirts and placed them in the car, then walked back into the store and started to fill a second shopping cart.

An undercover police officer then confronted the couple in the store." (More)

The real America not that part where you live.

Wile E Coyote was a better planner than most of the criminals I read about in the corner.
