Terrifying Florida Home Invasion Caught on Camera

Published

Broward County Sheriff's Office

Home invasions in Florida have become rampant. On the tenth of July this year in Land O Lakes for instance, a victim described as a teenager, had to shoot intruders leaving two of them dead and one arrested.  Another one was the 5a.m incident that involved shots fired at three kids in Holt.

This October 26th was a tragic one for a female victim. Happening around 9 a.m. in Tamarc, the female victim was forced at gunpoint to escort the invaders into her house.

 She was then tied up as the intruders made away with items valued at an approximate 2700 US dollars.

 The whole incident was captured on her home CCTV camera and it shows a woman (who was a member of the gunmen crew) opening the victim’s door to say something and after closing it, rubs off her fingerprints from the door knob before going back to a waiting vehicle.

The vehicle is a white Lexus(2019 or 2020 model). The intruders wore dark apparel and had masks on. Boward Sheriff’s robbery detectives are working tirelessly to get the gunmen.

WOMAN HIT BY TIRE IN THE SIDE OF THE ROAD

If you spend as much time on social media as I do, most specifically Twitter, then you have probably already seen this video.The whole scenario on the footage pretty much sums up 2020 for most of us! Surveillance cameras along a path in the Copacabana district of Rio de Janeiro captured shocking footage of an unnamed woman getting hit on the head by a flying tire as she walked along the street.

The woman was walking along the street, and she noticed the fast-moving runaway trye head toward her. She then managed to dodge the tire that flew past her at high speed, or so she thought.

Woman in Brazil gets hit by a flying tire

After she narrowly misses the tire, she continues walking along the street, oblivious to the fact that the tire had hit a pole and was headed straight for her head. The tire ends up hitting the back of her head, sending the woman sprawling on the floor and her shoes fly out of her feet.

WOMAN HIT BY TyRE IN THE SIDE OF THE ROAD

Seconds after she sprawls onto the floor, the car from which the tire rolled out rolls in. A driver then rushes out of his car, removes the tire that is on top of her, and helps her up.

This comes after another CCTV footage of a man sipping beer in a sidewalk bar was in a similar fashion taken out by a dislodged car tire in the same country of Brazil.

Woman Makes Husband Sell His PlayStation 5 After Realizing It Wasn’t an Air Purifier

PLAY STATION 5 VS WATER PURIFIER

As reported on Taiwan News just last month, a man in Taiwan was forced to part with his PlayStation 5 after his wife discovered that he had lied to her about it being an air purifier.

This story comes courtesy of a Taiwanese Facebook user named Jin Wu, who turned to be the lucky recipient of the next-gen Sony console. On November 21st, Jin Wu shared that he had purchased the PS5 from someone reselling it the previous day.

He said after he agreed to pick up the device in person, he called the seller’s number only for a woman to pick the phone. He shared that when he spoke to the woman about the console, she sounded like someone who does not frequently play video games.

Wu was quite marveled at the meager price tag for the new device, cheaper than any others he had seen. Despite the price, the woman seemed quite eager to sell it. Upon meeting the person who was reselling the console in person, he was surprised to see a middle-aged man, whom he judged to be an avid gamer.

Wu began chatting with the man and asked him where he had initially purchased it. The man responded that he had bought it on the e-commerce website PChome.

“Did you buy two? Otherwise, why are you selling it?” Wu remembers asking the man, who fell silent before coming forward with the truth, saying, “My wife wants to sell it.”

“I went silent after seeing the look in his eyes. I could feel his pain,” Wu recalls, remembering the bitter expression on the man’s face. “It turns out that women can tell the difference between a PS5 and an air filter.” 

Since its release last month, the PlayStation 5 has made many people do the unthinkable just to get their hands on one. We can only imagine the pain of the man who had to sell it.

According to a report by Decrypt, the Venezuelan Scientific, Criminal, and Criminalistic Investigations
Corps, which is basically the Venezuelan FBI, announced the arrest of two people who hacked into the
servers of Banacar Exchange, one of the crypto exchange platforms approved by the Venezuelan
government.

Mendoza went ahead to transfer bitcoin and fiat currency to multiple wallets and accounts. The two did
try to hide their digital footprints. Still, the authorities were able to trace the transfers to Proinsa, a
company based in Costa Rica. Authorities have not been able to determine the connection between the
attackers and the company.

Criminals Are Not the Only Threat to Venezuelan Crypto Enthusiasts

Venezuela is facing sanctions from the US government, has an unstable government, and a volatile
economy. All these issues affect the cryptocurrency market in the country. To add to the problem is the
rising rate of crypto-related crimes, not just from hackers and other criminals but also from the
government and law enforcement officers.
According to local crypto miners, disclosing their incoming is drawing attention from corrupt
government officials. Some said officials tried to extort them.

In 2019, reports alleged that the Central Bank of Venezuela was laundering Bitcoin and Ethereum got
from illegal mining equipment seizures. The same year, the Economist reported that Venezuela’s
President Nicolas Maduro was using the government-run electrical grid to trace cryptocurrency miners
and seizing their equipment illegally.

A week after a new strange metal monolith was found in the Utah Desert, an identical structure has been identified on top of Pine Mountain in Atascadero, California.

The second triangular shiny monolith that was uncovered in Batca Doamnei Hill in Piatra Neamt, northern Romania, was distinct from the other two pillars and vanished from the setting.

According to the Atascadero News, it was announced that “The three-sided obelisk appeared to be made of stainless steel, 10-feet tall and 18 inches wide.” 

Moreover, the object was melted together at each corner but did not have weld marks.

The monolith had fasteners attaching the side panels to a likely steel frame inside. Also, it was hollow at the top and perhaps at the bottom too but it was not held by the ground and could tumble when shoved.

The recently spotted monolith occurs to be a foot longer and sleeker than the one in Utah.

The 10 to 12 talons steel monolith in Utah went missing after a company of men struck and got rid of it.

Wednesday reports by The Atascadero News and KEY-TV revealed that the people who placed the pillar on the hiking path of the Pine Mountain had not been recognized.

 Snaps were posted by Connor Allen(news reporter for the Atascadero News), telling viewers about its location.

Andy Lewis and Sylvan Christensen, Utah citizens, confessed to being a part of the people who removed the Utah monolith. 

The three dispatched a video indicating their efforts of breaking the monolith down at night, saddling it up on a wheelbarrow, and later dragged it away.

These mysterious monoliths have created such a controversy on the internet. Some say it is some teenagers who just decided to plant things in the ground or a new wave of art while others believe it is a company that just decided to leave it there.

Micallef said that the boat in question had developed a mechanical problem. He claims that during midnight, on that Saturday, the boat started taking in water.  

Bee had taken off his shirt and waved it towards the motor vessel Angeles (a ship that sails under the flag of Liberia) as a way of attracting attention.

Micallef acknowledged that it was an amazing story, and he was thankful for Angeles and the whole crew for keeping a sharp lookout. He was happy to return the man to his family during the holiday season.
