WEST NEWBURY, Mass. Oct. 24, 2007 – A former elementary school principal convicted several years ago on heroin charges was arrested Saturday and charged with shoplifting more than $1,000 worth of items from West Newbury and Newburyport stores. Margaret Loder-Healy, 54, of 8 Town Forest Road, Merrimac, was arrested at 9:44 p.m. outside Box and Bow on Main Street. Loder-Healy was taking items from a tent outside Box and Bow, looking both ways, and then sticking them in an oversized pocketbook, said officer James Riley. Riley said he waited until Loder-Healy got into her car without paying for the items.”She said she wasn’t stealing anything, that she was getting ready to pay for it,” Riley said. He said Loder-Healy initially refused to get out of her car and resisted arrest before he took her to the station. She was charged with shoplifting, larceny from a building, receiving stolen property worth more than $250 and resisting arrest.
Loder-Healy made national news seven years ago when the Eagle-Tribune revealed that the Newton, N.H., elementary school principal was facing federal heroin possession charges and had been going to a Lawrence methadone clinic since 1980. Loder-Healy had previously taught in Amesbury, Reading, Hampstead and Londonderry despite having pleaded guilty in Rockingham District Court in 1982 to posing as a nurse to obtain codeine. In 2000, she pleaded guilty to purchasing heroin in North Andover and was sentenced to probation.Loder-Healy resigned her position several weeks after the initial reports.”Because I’m a heroin addict doesn’t mean I’m a bad person, a bad teacher, a bad principal,” Loder-Healy told the newsmagazine “20/20″ in a 2000 interview. “I happen to be a teacher with a bad problem.”Loder-Healy had a history of shoplifting as well, including a guilty plea in 1999 for stealing several hundred dollars worth of merchandise from a Sears department store in Salem, N.H.Riley said while investigating Loder-Healy, he recovered a “huge amount” of property valued at more than $1,000 that appeared to have been stolen from Newburyport stores. He said various merchants were still coming to collect jewelry, pocketbooks, clothing and shoes that were in Loder-Healy’s possession.Loder-Healy posted bail Saturday night, but apparently wanted souvenirs from the police station, Riley said.
“She was sitting out in the dispatch center, loading her pocketbook with the free gunlocks we give out,” he said.

HAMMOND IND. Oct. 24, 2007 Two men got away with an undisclosed amount of cash from a Hammond bank Monday morning after stealing the gun of a security guard and handcuffing him.
According to FBI Special Agent Wendy Osborne, two men entered Harris Bank, 7227 Calumet Ave. at 9:11 a.m. One of the men immediately took control of the security guard and took the security guard’s gun and handcuffed him while the other vaulted the counter and took money from one of the teller drawers.No customers were inside the bank at the time and no one was injured in the incident.”They were in and out of the bank very quickly, some said in 45 seconds,” Osborne said.
Bank employees were not able to see the escape route of the two men, she said, but a customer outside the bank said he saw a red, four-door Saturn leaving the parking lot at a high rate of speed. Osborne said it is unclear whether that car is connected to the bank robbery or not.Investigators have surveillance camera images of the men in question.The suspect who took the guard’s weapon was described as a black male in his 20s, 5-feet 9-inches tall weighing 170 pounds wearing all black clothing and carrying a semi-automatic weapon.The man who vaulted the counter is described as a black male between 20 and 28, 5-feet 8-inches tall weighing 160 to 170 pounds with a medium build wearing all black clothing and white gloves possibly made of Latex.
The same bank was hit by robbers in June, but Osborne said authorities do not believe there is any connection between that crime and Monday’s.

Lake forest Calif. Oct. 24 2007
A teen accused of hacking a 911 police computer system and triggering the deployment of a team of heavily armed police officers to the home of an innocent and unsuspecting California family will be arraigned next month, as bail was set Monday at $500,000.
Prosecutors accused 19-year-old Randall Ellis, of Mulkiteo, Wash., of using his computer and a recorded audio track to trick Orange County police into believing he had shot and killed someone in the Lake Forest, Calif., home of Doug Bates and Stacey Cerwin-Bates and would shoot more people.
Prosecutors and police have been tight-lipped about exactly how Ellis hacked their system, but cybersecurity experts told ABCNEWS.com that such breaches are easy and indicative of police departments’ lax security systems.
Moments after receiving the 911 call March 29, SWAT teams and helicopters were dispatched to the home.
Awakened by the noise and believing there was a prowler outside, Bates stepped into his yard wielding a kitchen knife only to be swarmed and handcuffed by officers carrying machine guns.
“You have to look at this from the SWAT team’s perspective,” said Farrah Emani, spokeswoman for the Orange County District Attorney. “They thought they had been called to the scene of a homicide and saw a man with a weapon; it’s fortunate they did not shoot him.”
Ellis has been charged with “one felony count of computer access and fraud, two felony counts of false imprisonment by violence, one misdemeanor count of falsely reporting a crime, and two felony counts of assault with an assault weapon by proxy,” according to a statement by the Orange County District Attorney.
Ellis’ attorney, Ronald Bower, confirmed that the teenager would be arraigned Nov. 16. He said California took the rare step of individually collecting Ellis from the Washington state jail he has been held at since his arrest last Friday. That action, combined with the high bail, indicate how serious the California police are taking the case.
“We are going to enter a not-guilty plea in November,” Bower said. “Putting in a not-guilty plea does not mean the case will go to trial, but it opens the door to things like psychological evaluation. … The bail is extremely high, and like the unique extradition, it underscores that they’re very serious about this.”
I believe the assault with an assault weapon by proxy charge,” essentially blaming someone for using a weapon from miles away, “is the first of its kind in California,” Bower said.
Security experts said the skills involved in the alleged hack were pretty basic and indicate just how vulnerable many security systems are to such breaches.
Police departments just don’t have the skills to secure their own computers. This kid was probably browsing the Internet and realized there was an easy way to access the system,” said Robert Graham, a former hacker and now CEO of the security firm Errata Security.
Graham said despite the hacker label, part of the alleged scheme may have involved something as easy as putting a fake phone number into a voice-over-Internet program. When the police department’s caller ID showed the number of the Bates family home, police officers assumed the call was coming from that house.
“Those with even small computer skills can ‘spoof’ the caller ID themselves. This is possible via Vonage or the all-in-one services that you might get through your cable provider. The Skype phone client can easily be used to spoof the phone number,” Graham said, referring to popular voice-over-Internet phone services.
He compared putting a fake phone number into such a program with writing a fake return address on an envelope; someone reading that address would assume on first blush that it was authentic.
Pradeep Khosla, a cybersecurity expert and dean of Carnegie Mellon’s College of Engineering, said the government needs to help local police departments invest in increasing their security.
“Hacking into most systems isn’t that difficult,” he said. “Every system has bugs or loopholes, and it’s only a matter of time before hackers exploit those.”
“911 systems are essential to public safety, and the government has to invest in research and development that makes them more secure. You can imagine a hypothetical scenario where organized gangs or terrorists use the same techniques to flood 911 systems with wrong information and then attack someplace else.”

Marietta GA. Oct. 24, 2007
Marietta police have arrested a suspect in the weekend death of a 21-year-old video game store manager who suffocated after having his face duct-taped during a robbery.
Patrick Gray Graham, a 34-year-old ex-con, was taken to the Cobb County Jail just before daybreak Wednesday after being questioned for several hours at Marietta police headquarters.
He is charged with murder, three counts of kidnapping, three counts of false imprisonment, three counts of armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, according to the arrest warrant.
Graham was also charged with probation violation. State records show prior convictions in Cobb County for forgery, obstruction of a law enforcement officer, cocaine possession and cocaine distribution, and Graham did two stints in state prisons. According to jail records, he is employed by a Marietta poultry processing plant.
Marietta police spokesman Mark Bishop said fingerprints from the crime scene led detectives to Graham as a “person of interest.”
Detectives identified a “couple of different locations” where Graham might be living, Bishop said.
The Honda Civic stolen from the victim was found about 5 p.m. Tuesday in the parking lot of a Cherokee County Publix store. Police put the car under suveillance for several hours “in case Mr. Graham came back to get the vehicle,” Bishop said.
When the suspect didn’t return to the car, police Tuesday night went to one of the possible residences, at the Garrison Plantation apartments on South Cobb Drive.
While at Garrison Plantation, detectives learned that the suspect was at the nearby Skyway Apartments.
Bishop said the Marietta police SWAT team then went to the Skyway Apartments and arrested Graham.
Police also executed search warrants at the apartments and recovered items stolen from the GameStop video store on Cobb Parkway, “and that’s how [Graham] became our suspect,” Bishop said.
He said a sketch of the suspect drawn by a GBI artist was a close match.
“Having seen both the sketch and the suspect, this is one of the best ones that I’ve seen,” Bishop said. “They did an outstanding job.”
Bishop said the father of Matthew Cherry, the man who died during the robbery, cried when told of the arrest.
“We’re glad we got this individual off the streets,” Bishop said. “We hope we have brought some closure” to the family of the victim.

NEW YORK CITY NY OCT. 24, 2007
Off-duty police Officer Sean Sawyer made a startling revelation early yesterday, approaching a patrol car and admitting he fired the shot that killed a young father in an East Harlem road rage confrontation Sunday, police sources said.The shooting, however, may have been in self-defense, with a friend of victim Jayson Tirado saying Tirado pretended he had a gun, fashioning one out of his thumb and forefinger and saying, “You want to see Mr. Ruger?” the sources said.”To the best of the information we have now, the victim who was shot made a reference to the fact that he had a gun, and then pointed his hand towards the driver of the other car,” Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.
Tirado, 25, was shot on First Avenue after he apparently got into a fight with Sawyer as they navigated a traffic jam on Harlem River Drive.Sawyer, 34, was released from police custody last night. He was suspended without pay and his gun and badge were taken away. At the very least, the sources said, he faces departmental charges for fleeing the scene and waiting 19 hours to report what happened.Tirado’s family wants Sawyer behind bars.”He killed him like a reckless teenager, shooting him through the window, abandoning my son, letting him die,” said Tirado’s mother, Irene Tirado, 54, of the Lower East Side. “Now, I find out he’s a police officer.”But Sawyer’s brother, Christopher, 36, called his brother “a hero by nature.” “He’s a good cop,” said Christopher, who lives in the same Manhattan Valley apartment building as his brother. “It’s a clean shooting. You do not reach down into your car on a New York City police officer in this city. My brother did his job.”Tirado’s shooting was still being investigated when Sawyer, a four-year veteran assigned to Queens narcotics, stepped out of his home about 1 a.m. yesterday and approached a sergeant in a patrol car at Central Park West and West 102nd Street.He was overcome with guilt, the sources said, and felt like he was about to have a heart attack. He told the sergeant he was an officer, he was having chest pains and needed medical attention.A short time later, police said, Sawyer told the sergeant he had fired his gun Sunday during a confrontation.That shooting, police sources said, followed a road rage incident on Harlem River Drive sparked by an apparent act of machismo, with Tirado pretending he was armed.Tirado, it turns out, was unarmed, but Sawyer opened fire from his Nissan Xterra, the sources said. Tirado, behind the wheel of his Honda Civic, was struck under the right arm, Kelly said. The victim managed to drive off, but collapsed behind the wheel three blocks north. He was taken to nearby Harlem Hospital and died minutes later.”All he did was threaten our lives and shoot,” said Jason Batista, 21, who was in the car. “It was a reckless act. The officer never pulled out a badge. He never said, ‘I’m a cop.’ If he would have said he was a cop, none of this would have happened.”Neither Batista nor another passenger, Anthony Mencia, 23 – who said he was too drunk to recall what happened – was hurt. Kelly said it appears all three had been drinking.The circumstances surrounding the shooting played out during the inevitable tensions that arise during a Manhattan traffic jam, in this case one caused by a motorcycle crash on the southbound Harlem River Drive, near the East 116th Street exit.Sawyer, trying to exit the drive, got angry because he felt Tirado was blocking his path. There were words, the sources said, then both drivers exited and headed north on First Avenue. A block later, the sources said, Tirado cut Sawyer off.Tirado lived in the Jacob Riis Houses on the Lower East Side with his girlfriend and daughter, Jayleen, 5.”I don’t know what I’m going to tell her,” his mother said.The officer lives with his wife, Monique, and two toddler sons. His brother said he pursued a career as an entertainer before becoming a cop. Recently, the officer and his wife bought a home in Queens.

Eastlake Oh. Oct 24, 2007 A Cleveland security guard, angry about his former girlfriend’s engagement, killed his romantic rival, police say.
Dajuan Banks, 34, of Kipling Avenue, was charged with aggravated murder Monday. He was in Lake County Jail on Monday on a $500,000 bond.
He is accused of slashing the throat of Samuel Nicholson Jr., 41, on Oct. 15 at the Plymouth Road home Nicholson shared with fiancée Jackqualynn Duncan, Eastlake police said.
Duncan returned from work about 10:30 a.m. and found Nicholson dead in the bedroom. They had been engaged 21 days. Police believe he was killed between 7:30 and 10 a.m.
Banks, who works for Securitas Security Services as a guard for WJW Channel 8 News in Cleveland, slashed three tires on Nicholson’s GMC truck, then waited for Duncan’s children to leave for school before he broke into the home and confronted Nicholson about dating Duncan, Lt. Bill Gutowski said. Banks had dated her for about 18 months before she met Nicholson at a Wickliffe bar.
Police said she sent Banks a text message to notify him of the breakup.
Gutowski said Banks confessed to the crime during questioning late Thursday night. He told police he was aware of Duncan’s morning routine and waited until Nicholson was alone in the home before he went in. During the argument he pistol-whipped Nicholson before slashing his throat.
Police said Duncan had not filed any harassment or stalking complaints against Banks and was not aware of his resentment against Nicholson, police said.

HYBLA VALLEY, Va. Oct. 23 2007 – An Alexandria man has been charged with molesting a 9-year-old girl in a Fairfax County Wal-Mart.
Police say the incident took place shortly after 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20 at the store at 7910 Richmond Highway.

Akron Oh. Oct. 23, 2007
Loss prevention officers at an area mall said that they have heard many reasons why a shoplifter says that they shoplift but recently an apprehended suspect gave them a new reason. One that was as funny as it was dumb. It seems that the suspect who was later identified as
Johnny Otis Brown, 55, of Barberton, was charged Oct. 10 with theft. He is accused of taking a $60 earring from Macy’s in Summit Mall . When loss prevention agents attempted to detain Brown he immediately resisted an a struggle ensued but he was finally taken into custody and admitted that he had taken some jewelry. Police said Brown told them he took the earring because it ”gave him something to do.”
Police and loss prevention personnel are investigating how many other times Brown might have been looking for something to do as they determine what else he has shoplifted from area retailers.

Coahoma County MS.
Coahoma County Deputy Sheriff Jerry Wayne Hudgins, 43, was killed Friday in a one-car accident west of the city.
“Deputy Hudgins died doing what he liked to do,” Coahoma County Sheriff Andrew Thompson Jr. said Saturday.
Hudgins became the first Coahoma County lawman killed in the line of duty since Sheriff A.H. “Brick” Gotcher was shot to death in a June 1954 compress shooting, according to Thompson.
Thompson said Hudgins was responding to a call to Stovall Grocery located at the intersection of Stovall Road and Mississippi Highway 1 about 9:50 p.m. Friday.
Hudgins was about two miles west on Stovall Road when his car left the highway and slammed into a tree.
“There are some bad curves on Stovall Road,” Thompson said. Thompson said dispatch received a call from Stovall Grocery that some “suspicious looking guys were there.”
Three deputies were dispatched to the rural grocery store in separate vehicles.
One deputy took the Mississippi Highway 322 route to Highway 1 while Hudgins and another deputy turned off Lee Drive and onto Stovall Road.
Hudgins’ body was taken to Jackson for an autopsy which was to be performed Saturday night.
Coahoma County Coroner Scotty Meredith pronounced Hudgins dead at the scene.
“He died instantly,” Meredith said.
Meredith, the owner of Meredith-Nowell Funeral Home, said Hudgins’ funeral will be held at 2 p.m., Tuesday, at Clarksdale Baptist Church.
Thompson noted that Hudgins started out as a part-time deputy in October 1996.
He completed his training at the Mississippi Law Enforcement Academy and became a full-time deputy in October 2003.
“Wayne just celebrated his fourth year as a full-time deputy,” said Thompson proudly.
A trooper from the Mississippi Highway Patrol was called to the accident scene and investigated .
The Coahoma County Volunteer Fire Department was also called to the scene to use of the “Jaws of Life” to extract Hudgins from the car.
Hudgins earlier served as a volunteer firefighter according to Coahoma County Fire Chief Jimmy Williams.
The deputy who was following Hudgins along Stovall Road reported “seeing blue lights” and then “they disappeared.”
Thompson said that deputy began to back track on Stovall Road and discovered Hudgins vehicle slammed into a tree.
Thompson called Hudgins a “hard-working and dedicated deputy who loved his profession”.
“In fact, the Coahoma County Sheriff’s Department was his life,” stated Thompson.
“Wayne was energetic. He never refused an assignment, and you could rest assured it would be done.”
He called Hudgins “conscientious – a person who was well -liked in the county.”
Mike Rawlinson of National Funeral Home said he was coming to Clarksdale from his home in Farrell and saw the traffic on Stovall Road.
He stated that officers were re-routing traffic because of emergency equipment.
Visitation will be held 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22, at Clarksdale Baptist Church.
Funeral services will be held 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, at Clarksdale Baptist Church.
Burial will be in Oakridge Cemetery with Meredith-Nowell Funeral Home in charge of the arrangements.
