Woman Believes God Saved Her From Burglar, Doesn't Call Police
The woman, whose name has not been released, told officers she was praying in her kitchen Feb. 1 when she felt someone tugging at her hair, according to a police report obtained by the station. At first she thought it was just her husband, but when she opened her eyes she saw a strange man standing in the room.
She says she shouted, "Lord, help me!" and the stranger fell down and hit his head on the refrigerator, then left the residence, taking only a $20 bill he had picked up off the table.
The woman did not report the incident, she said, because she felt God saved her from harm. Her husband ended up calling 911 when a strange car pulled into their driveway a week later, which concerned him because of what had happened the previous week.
While God may be getting credit for saving this women, he has also been accused of promoting some not-so-holy behavior in the past.

NY man charged with faking own kidnapping — reportedly to avoid gal pal
A 34-year-old Brooklyn
The New York Police Department says the man was arrested last week and charged with a misdemeanor count of filing a false report after admitting to police that he faked his disappearance.
A police spokeswoman said Wallace, once in custody, admitted he had faked the kidnapping. The New York Post reported that Wallace made up the story to explain his absence to his girlfriend.
Police sources told the Post that Wallace was found hog-tied, with his hands, legs and mouth covered in duct tape, a few blocks from his Bedford-Stuyvesant home early Thursday morning.
Police were initially skeptical of the kidnapping story after noticing a roll of duct tape hanging from Wallace's wrist, according to the Post.
“He’s a total moron,” a law-enforcement source told the paper. “It was a pathetic attempt to pull the wool [over] her eyes.”
Wallace first told police he couldn't remember what happened to him, then indicated he had been kidnapped by two men in blue minivan on Feb. 19, the Post said.
FOOD & DRINK: Beware of Seafood Fraud
If you’re a fan of sushi, there’s something new to worry about – seafood fraud.
An environmental activist group found that one-third of all the seafood sold in grocery stores, seafood markets, restaurants and sushi bars is swapped for species that are cheaper, over-fished, or risky to eat.
So, just like you can’t believe everything you read on the Internet, you also can’t believe everything you read on the sushi menu. (Eatocracy.com)
