Deputies Accused of Stealing Speeder's Xbox

He may have been speeding, but a Florida man claims an Orange County sheriff's deputy stole his Xbox instead of giving him a ticket.

Kenyatta Hillman says he was driving with a friend when deputies pulled him over for speeding. The officers searched the car after smelling what they said was marijuana, but couldn't find anything but an Xbox and a few games. The officers, who suspected it was stolen, confiscated the gaming system.

Hillman was told he could get the Xbox back when he produced a receipt and the box it came in. When he did, Hillman was told by officers that they couldn't find it in their evidence room.

Later, however, the sergeant handling the case said he would give the Xbox back to Hillman on Friday, because he is "busy" during the week.

Hillman claimed that he was only stopped in the first place because he was poor and because of the way he looked.

Take That, Repo Man

State police are looking for a Delaware man who drove his car off a tow truck Saturday as a repossession worker tried to tow it away.

Police said a 37-year-old man came out of his home to find a worker from Complete Auto Recovery putting his car on a tow truck. Police spokesman Sgt. Joshua Bushweller said the man interfered when the worker attached a chain to the car and put it on the truck's lift.

Bushweller said the man then got into the car, put it in reverse — despite warnings that he could tear off the bumper — and drove off.

Police said an arrest warrant has been issued charging the man with one misdemeanor count of reckless endangerment. (AP)

The Mission resident, who was not identified after the Friday night incident, was fined $300 and her chorizo was seized. (AP)
