CAT BRIBED WITH KITTY-TREATS?
Diego Martinez-Espinoza, a Mexican national, was under house arrest in Highland Springs, Va., awaiting trial on cocaine-smuggling charges, when he got his cat to take his place. This was done by putting the GPS monitor on the feline. His absence was discovered when the battery ran down a few days later. Last heard, the accused was still missing a month-and-a-half later.

After Anil Yadav, 30, received an x-ray, he was placed on a strict diet of bananas and a special liquid. That’s because he’d swallowed a necklace stolen off the neck of a 52-year-old woman walking home in the Sion area of Mumbai, India. Dr. Debangshu Dam, a medical practitioner based in Delhi, says, “Eating lots of bananas will cause gastro-colic reflex which will make him pass stool.” It took 60 bananas, though.

Reason he knew the truck? It had been stolen from him earlier that morning. After a police chase and wreck, the driver, identified as Terry Proctor, 29, was arrested.
