Marin County Sheriffs Office(PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla.) — Three suspects in an alleged plot to rob and kill armored guards were taken down in a dramatic sting operation by dozens of officers caught on police video in the middle of I-95 in Marin County, Florida.

According to the Marin County Sheriff’s Office, the three men were planning to murder two armored car employees in Port St. Lucie, Florida, and make off with millions of dollars in cash.

The police operation took two years to complete, authorities said, and was done in conjunction with the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Port St. Lucie Police, St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI. The take down took place at 9 a.m. on Feb. 20.

Police helicopter video shows dozens of vehicles swarm the suspects on I-95 just hours before authorities say the suspects were to pull off the heist. Police forced the three suspects out of their vehicle, arresting Daryl Canady, Alger Lee Ellison and Martiavius Leon Williams.

A police affidavit says the trio were to rob an armored car outside a PNC Bank, kill the employees and then had planned another similar robbery and killing. One guard working on the truck was in on the plan to take the truck’s $4 million, the affidavit states. It also says the three men competed a “dry run” of the robbery five days earlier, however, a confidential informant tipped police off to the operation.

“So you see in the video actually we have cars in front, cars in the back, vehicles on the side, and we just slowly tightened the noose, stopped the vehicle, and get them out. Nobody got hurt,” Marin County Sheriff William D. Snyder said.

Who’s one person Jimmy Kimmel won’t be making jokes about at the Oscars?

No Comments

By Music News Group

ABC/Jeff Lipsky(HOLLYWOOD) — When it comes to jokes at the Oscars, usually everyone in Hollywood is a viable target. But for Jimmy Kimmel, who returns as host this Sunday, there’s one person he thinks won’t make a good punchline: Frances McDormand.

“First of all, she’s so great but she also doesn’t have any– she doesn’t have a royal air about her,” he tells ABC Radio. “And we don’t know her at all. She doesn’t really do interviews. She’s a tough one to make fun of.”

The notoriously private actress is the favorite to win Best Actress for her performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Kimmel has more than enough fodder for his monologue, though. He’s not even taking joke suggestions from family or friends.

“Sometimes they’re good, but that’s the problem,” he says of joke suggestions. “…I’m shooting for great. ‘Good’ I might use on my show, but great is what I’m really looking for and those jokes don’t come from your friends.”

Need proof? Kimmel reveals one particularly less-than-great joke suggestion he got from a pal: “So Sally Hawkins is nominated this year for Shape of Water, it’s a wonderful performance and it’s actually the first time since Luca Brasi that an actor has been cast to sleep with the fishes.”

That joke clearly didn’t make the cut. But Kimmel’s ready for anything this year’s show throws at him. After all, he already survived the great Best Picture flub of 2017.

“I think you have to have 70 percent of the show planned and the rest, you have to leave room for unplanned moments because if you don’t, the show will feel scripted,” he says.

The 90th Academy Awards airs Sunday, March 4, on ABC, starting at 8 p.m. ET.

Monster nor'easter pummels East Coast; at least 5 dead

No Comments


Twitter/@dcassell (NEW YORK) — A massive nor’easter pummeling the East Coast is responsible for at least five deaths.

The storm strengthened rapidly Friday, undergoing what’s known as bombogenesis or “bombing out,” when a low-pressure system drops 24 millibars in 24 hours. Dubbed a “bomb cyclone,” the catchphrase was coined earlier this year as a nickname for another nor’easter back in early January.

At least five have died in the storm. A 6-year-old boy died in Virginia after a tree fell on his family’s home, officials said. Others include an 11-year-old boy hit by a falling tree in New York state and a 77-year-old woman struck by a branch outside her home in Baltimore.

The latest

3:00 p.m. ET: It’s snowing across much of the interior northeast this afternoon, including Syracuse and Albany, New York; New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. Sussex County, New Jersey, has already seen 10 inches of snow.

New York City is seeing a mix of rain, snow, sleet and winds.

Connecticut and Boston are getting hit with heavy rain, flooding and whipping winds. The highest wind recorded so far was 78 mph in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, and in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.

High wind warnings

3:00 p.m. ET: High wind warnings remain in effect with gusts from 50 to at least 65 mph from the Carolinas to Massachusetts.

Over 2.2 million customers are without power from Massachusetts to Virginia.

In Pennsylvania, a school bus was toppled over by high winds. No students were on board, and the driver’s injuries were minor.

In Tewksbury, Massachusetts, a driver escaped with non-life-threatening injuries after a tree fell on this car, officials said.

In Washington, D.C., winds reached 71 mph at Dulles Airport and 62 mph at Reagan International Airport.

Prince William County Public Schools in the Washington, D.C., area are closed today due to high wind warnings.

The federal government has also shuttered all of its offices.

Travel at a standstill

3:00 p.m. ET: Over 1,000 flights have been canceled in the United States today, according to FlightAware. Nearly half of all scheduled flights at New York City’s LaGuardia Airport have been canceled today, the airport said.

Amtrak said it is temporarily suspending service along the Northeast corridor.

Flooding in Massachusetts

3:00 p.m. ET: Coastal flood alerts are in effect from Maryland to Maine, with major and possibly record coastal flooding expected in Boston area tonight into Saturday.

The third highest tide on record happened today at Boston Harbor, reaching 14.67 feet.

“Do not try to drive through the water!” the Duxbury Fire Department in Massachusetts said. “This person needed to be rescued from their vehicle.”

“I can’t stress this enough: This is not a snowstorm, but it’s a heck of a storm and people need to take it seriously,” Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said at a news conference Thursday night.

The forecast

3:00 p.m. ET:
Blizzard warnings have been issued for parts of upstate New York, which could see 50 mph winds, whiteout conditions, an additional foot of snow this afternoon.

Parts of New York, Pennsylvania and northwest New Jersey could see 1 to 2 feet of snow through this evening.

By tonight the nor’easter will pull away, leaving lingering rain and snow for coastal spots from Atlantic City to Boston.

By early Saturday morning, the region will be much drier, but the threat of winds and coastal flooding will remain into mid-day Saturday.

Parents charged with felony child abuse after 3 children found living in squalor

No Comments

By Lily Lieberman

iStock/Thinkstock(JOSHUA TREE, Calif.) — A California couple was arrested Wednesday after it was discovered their three children were living in squalor.

Authorities initially said that the children had been living inside a box for years, but Capt. Trevis Newport with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department later told The Los Angeles Times that the victims weren’t confined to the space.

“They’re homeless,” Newport told the Times. “It’s a shelter, the shape of a box … nowhere near what it sounded like when it came out.”

Deputies made the discovery while conducting an area check in Joshua Tree, according to a press release from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

They found “a travel trailer, which appeared to be abandoned, and a large rectangular box made of plywood on the property,” the release reads. “The property had no electricity or running water. Several large holes and mounds of trash and human feces were located throughout the property.”

Authorities said 30 to 40 cats were found roaming the property, as well.

While there, deputies encountered three children, ages 11, 13 and 14, according to the release.

“The victims were found to have an inadequate amount of food and were living in an unsuitable and unsafe environment due to the conditions located on the property,” the release reads.

Two individuals identified by authorities as the children’s parents — Mona Kirk, 51, and Daniel Panico, 73 — were taken into custody on suspicion of willful cruelty to a child, according to the release. The children were placed in the care of Children and Family Services.

Kirk and Panico were later charged with three felony counts of child abuse, and the couple was arraigned at Joshua Tree Superior Court on Friday afternoon, according to the district attorney’s office. They pleaded not guilty, according to a reporter for local ABC station KABC-TV.

A number of friends and neighbors spoke to reporters at the court, saying the couple are not criminals but rather just homeless. The children built the fort and were proud of it, they said, KABC-TV reported, adding that the children seemed happy.

The parents are being held on $100,000 bail, according to the sheriff’s department.

Anyone with information is asked to call San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Morongo Basin Station at 760-366-4175.
