So sweet!

❤️ Welcome, little one! We are thrilled to share that western lowland gorilla Calaya gave birth to a male at 6:25 p.m. yesterday. His name, Moke [pronounced mo-KEY], means “junior” or “little one” in the Lingala language. Primate keepers are happy to report that Calaya has been caring for her infant and are optimistic he will thrive. #GorillaStory #WeSaveSpecies Learn more: https://s.si.edu/2JQE8U7.

COP-LIMENT: Nice email we received today on Officer Matthew Kray!

"As I know that people are quick to file a complaint with your department but today I want to thank one of your team for the professionalism and kindness that he displayed.

On Friday, April 13th, I was involved in an accident on Polaris Parkway and Lyra Drive. Officer Kray, was the officer who was dispatched to my accident.

He was so nice and explained everything to both of us (other driver was at fault).

I had not been in an accident for over 50 years and he put me at ease.

I had forgot my phone so I couldn’t call anyone and he let me use his phone.

Again, this is a BIG THANK YOU to Officer Kray."

SHOPLIFTING QUICKLY TURNS INTO A ROBBERY:

Last night, April 24, 2018, at 9pm, the suspect, a black male possibly in his 30's, 6'-6’2", 180-200lbs, entered Family Dollar, at 1159 W. Broad St.

He walked around the store for a short time, grabbed 4 bottles of laundry detergent, then fled out a side emergency door.

Can afford a 350 dollar gun and expensuve bullets , but stealin 4 dollars of laundry detergent. Lol.

4 bottles of laundry detergent Really!! Obviously it wasn't to "clean up his act"!

Chasing suspects sounds pretty dangerous and not worth it!

How is that store even open? It's literally in the dead zone

That whole area has become bad as harlem, ny.

Running after the suspect about a block not good idea..

maybe he was thirsty 😂😂

Can afford a gun but cant afford laundry detergent....

FD and DG need security. Lucky the mgr.did not get shot. Most shoplifting st these stores are misdemeanors. Hell, let them shoplift. Nothing will happen to them.

Check the laundry mat!!! Smh😂

He must’ve had some really dirty clothes

Wonder what that was all about??? I mean really, why??

Maybe he was tired of Tide Pods?

Why do people rob and steal from Family Dollar?

Family dollar couldn't afford for me to chase a thief

Gotta love the hilltop so ? Whats going on there thismorning with the block on hauge being roped off

Sounds like a clean get away..but really..folks are pathetic!

Get a job low life's.

I wouldn’t have chased him over 4 bottles of soap. Unless it’s persil.

did all that over Laundry detergent 🤔 yep he's gonna get mad fun of for years to come

Yes i saw him on parsons and livingston ave.at 1035 pm.

Over some laundry detergent. Can you be any dumber?

LOL again with the hood rats robbing dollar stores! Shocking. 😂😂

stop posting only of black criminals... you are going to make the defenders of black criminals trolls on here butt hurt again.... and the defending to the black criminals will start in 3....2....1.....

CROSS BOW THIEF - KNOW HIM?

On April 10, 2018 at 9pm this white male suspect entered DICK'S Sporting Goods at 1510 Polaris Parkway.

He spent a few minutes in the archery area looking at a 10 Point crossbow. He carried it to the front of the store, walked by an employee & left the business without paying for the $1,200 item.

Anyone with info on the suspect’s identity is asked to contact Det.Beard in CPD’s Burglary Unit at 614-645-2091 or [email protected]

That cross bow has a scope? Under Dicks standers won't that be considered an assault bow?

How this is not listed as a felony???? Like the shoplifters from Victoria Secret???

How does someine just walk out with a big cross bow ? Cameras must not be adequate in your store .

To hell with Dick's

Maybe Dick’s should have all of their crossbows destroyed.

Not a single customer at Dick's Sporting Goods which means less employees to keep an eye out for thieves. Looks like the Hoodrats are going to have Easy Pickins 😂😂😂 That dump will be closing soon

Ya who cares. Hope he comes back and takes them all.

Here's a mind blowing idea.... Put a camera at the front door, close enough to get a good picture.... Please read again, if you have further questions

Meh that’s what a gun free zone gets ya.....

Darryl from the Walking Dead?

So many views so few comments. I guess they burnt too many bridges. Hope he turns himself in.

To bad to sad ...not ..,.

It's a Dicks... Who cares.

What a Dick.

If it's gonna happen, glad it was these dicks

Looks like every other white guy i see

They will be giving them away soon when they go under. Let the meth head have it!

VICTORIA'S SECRET SERIAL THIEF - KNOW HER?

This black female suspect, possibly 25-29 years old, has been seen stealing from Victoria's Secret stores at Polaris Mall, Tuttle Mall and the outlet store in Sunbury, numerous times.

These surveillance pictures are from one of her thefts at the Polaris Victoria's Secret store on March 15, 2018 at 4:45pm.

She stole $2,000 worth of merchandise - a felony.

She's seen stuffing items in bags she brings along with her.

Anyone with info on this thief's identity is asked to contact Det. Sharma in CPD's Burgalry Unit at 614-645-2072 or [email protected]

Let’s be real, as high as their prices are, who is the real thief here? 😂

I don’t see a Thief, I see a lady walking around Happy and carrying paid for Merchandise🤷🏾‍♀️ You should try a lot better of taking pics or videos of actually her stealing🙄 #remainEncouraged #dummies

I can't believe people justify her stealing. These comments make me sick! It doesn't matter how much these item's cost and if they are marked to high. Then you don't buy them. That's how you stick it to them, not by stealing. You should feel proud when you buy that $20 panty because you worked for it. Not by picking it up and putting in a bag. That is a thief!! It's a sad day when you read comments on social media saying steal it.. It is ok.. God help us if people reallt believe this is all right.

When you want to find her before they do, so you can spend some money with her 😏

Regardless of how much they charge for their merchandise, those of you who are justifying & condoning stealing are a part of what's wrong with our society. If you want something, anything, get a job and pay for it!

No and if I did I wouldn’t tell y’all

Victoria Secret wants 57.98 for a pair of sequin sweat pants... so who's the real thief here. 2000 dollars worth of merchandise is like 3 outfits

Speaks a lot about today’s culture that a lot of comments on here are justifying the theft. What happened to be kind to one another, don’t take what doesn’t belong to you, help others less fortunate....etc?

How y’all know she wasn’t borrowing this? 🤷🏽‍♀️

Why not just go get a job there 😂 you get 40% off smh !

Oh dang 2k? She only took 3 bras?

for one start making a rule that all bags must be checked in at the register, then if you notice a nom VS bag being carried you know they are stealing. it's hard for retail stores bc they have specific rule they have to follow. they have to be careful not to excuse someone. some stores can't consider it theft til it leaves the store unpaid or hey cannot chase after the thief. this is probably how she is getting away with it. VS needs to ask the mall and whomever if they can start checking bags at the register. I usually tie my bag closed before going to another shop. it easier to steal stuff in open bags.so I want to show them I'm not planning on it. I worked retail and it doesn't matter what skin color you are , you can always spot some fishy people.

Just change your wig, shawty.

I don't wear them those look mess I don't them but I knock out the way someone wants to make a living if someone does so be it I like there perfume only

The “anti-theft devices” we have are sensors. A little magnetic sensor won’t stop anyone since most thieves rip them or burn them off anyways. However, having worked at Pink, we have a policy where we can’t say anything. So there’s not much we can do to combat any of this behavior. Every customer has to be treated fairly.

FB selling pages are full of stolen Bath and Body Works and Victoria Secrets. They usually sell in lots.

Put buzzers on shit if y'all that pressed

im sure you can find her and the items being sold on FB...but store policies suck and we the shoppers pay for it. Someone please tell me how many you do catch from a grainy video...especially if they dont have a record...good luck with that one

Integrity is becoming a thing of the past 😫

In 2018, that could so be a man.

I can tell you that, in general, a $60 retail of a limited branded item prob cost them less than $5 Now, that $5 includes the breakdown cost of everything involved in production to getting it on the shelf, such as... Overseas staffing, production cost, shipping, stocking the warehouse here, picking it, packing, shipping to store, electricity, fuel, labor...etc. Now y’all chicks know .....

Man all I wanna know is where she at 👀 they be having the best deals 😂 have her inbox me someone 🤷🏼‍♀️

The more items stolen from a store, the higher the prices. They have to recoup their losses somehow. So, for those of you that think stealing from them is justified, because of their high prices, think about THAT!

Stealing and\or cheating major corporations is not a victimless crime. It only hurts workers, consumers and the thief. Believe me, the corporation, executives and stockholders are fine. Boycotts are better and legal.

I thought every article of clothing @ V. Secret had an anti theft device on it.... I know this because my GF drags me in there every time. 🤦‍♂️

Well CPD....I appreciate you always having the video from Speedway for these things, yet you wouldn't help me get the video from them when the person that rammed into my car causing a three car accident left from there.

I still believe that businesses should be required to ask for ID when someone tries to use a credit card.

Who buys two Chrysler's

Wow... unbelievable that he left his wallet in his vehicle makes no sense. Was he visiting from Mayberry

Who the heck leaves their wallets in their car?

Is this the guy who stands out begging at the Shell on Hilliard Rome?

Guilty until proven innocent.

Drain the CBUS swamp !

Gotta feed that dope habit.

You tell them kim

Whether he left his wallets in the vehicle or not the guy would have broken into the vehicles. At least this way with the thieving POS being stupid and using the card they have a picture of him.
