West Palm Beach PD

A 9-year-old girl is being called a hero after she fought off a man who robbed her mom in a supermarket parking lot.

The incident happened outside Sabor Tropical Supermarket in West Palm Beach, Florida on November 2.

West Palm Beach police say Danielle Mobley and her daughter Journée Nelson were walking back to their car when a robber -- identified as 29-year-old Demetrius Jackson -- ran up and tackled Mobley to the ground.

Mobley struggled with Jackson who snatched her purse containing a Samsung phone, $40 in cash, several bank cards, a Coach wallet, her concealed carry permit and chewing gum.

While grown men stood nearby and did nothing, little Journée threw punches at Jackson's face then chased him as he fled with her mom's purse.

"She actually jumped up and chased him four houses down the block with me chasing her, calling her back," Mobley said during a news conference.

Surveillance video below shows the struggle between Mobley, Journée and the robber and the chase that ensued.

For her bravery, little Journée was honored by the West Palm Beach Police Department last week.

"I wouldn't recommend that you confront an individual like that," said West Palm Beach Police Chief Frank Adderley. "I bet he was shocked when she hit him right in his face... He was not expecting that. I think she hit him pretty hard."

Journée took photos with her parents during a tour of the West Palm Beach Police Department.

A security guard pulled out his cell phone when a thief rode a bicycle into a San Francisco Walgreens and filled a large trash bag with merchandise.

The incident happened at the Walgreens on the corner of Gough and Fell Streets in very liberal San Francisco.

Shoplifting is so routine in stores in San Francisco, California, that employees don't attempt to stop thieves.

The police stopped answering shoplifting calls after a 2014 ballot referendum downgraded property theft of less than $950 to a misdemeanor.

ABC7 reporter Lyanne Melendez tweeted a video of the shoplifting occurring in full view of a security guard who filmed the incident on his cell phone.

The security guard made a half-hearted attempt to grab the shopping bag stuffed full of goods as the thief cycled by.

According to the New York Times, Walgreens has closed 17 of its stores due to rampant theft in San Francisco.

Ahsha Safaí, a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, said thieves shoplift out of the Walgreens, then sell the goods on the street right around the corner from the store.

"Half of Walgreens was on the sidewalk. I'm not kidding," Safaí said. "I was blown away. I’ve never seen anything like it in this city."

Amazon Go

Amazon opened its first "fully automated" cashier-free grocery store in Seattle, Washington on Monday, Jan. 22. The new Amazon Go grocery store -- the first of its kind in the world -- allows shoppers to "Just Walk Out" of the store without passing through a checkout line.

The fully automated store utilizes a high-tech approach to shopping. Customers walk into the store and scan their cellphones before selecting items off the shelves and walking out.

Video Proof That 2 Chainz Was Robbed

It looks like rapper 2 Chainz told a lie when he claimed he wasn't robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco last Sunday. Maybe he forgot the critical details of the robbery in all the excitement?

Gossip website TMZ.com has obtained video footage of 2 Chainz and his hard leg crew being chased down by 2 men and robbed at gunpoint.

The video shows 2 Chainz and his entourage casually strolling down the street single file when at least 2 men approach, one pointing a gun directly at 2 Chainz's head. Footage from two surveillance cameras shows 2 Chainz and his crew turning and running as fast as they can when the gunman approaches.

The robbers obviously targeted the Atlanta rapper. One of them is so confident that he skips after the fleeing rapper.

Rapper 2 Chainz Was Robbed

Rapper 2 Chainz is not hard at all. He's a nice, down-to-earth, thoughtful sort of man, who you wouldn't expect to see strolling around San Francisco with 5 killers.

That helps to explain how 2 Chainz, real name Tauheed Epps, along with 5 members of his entourage, was robbed by 2 men, one armed with a gun, in San Francisco on Sunday afternoon.

2 Chainz was relieved of his wallet and 24Kt gold jewelry including a Versace timepiece and Versace medallion, all of which were catalogued on his Instagram page for easy reference.

Shoplifter runs over her son

A Macon woman is in police custody after she ran over her 4-year-old son in the parking lot while fleeing the Houston County Galleria in Centerville.

The tragic incident happened on Thursday night, when a Belk loss prevention officer observed Arkebia Albury, 25, shoplifting inside the store.

The security officer followed Albury and her children, ages 2 and 4, into the parking lot, according to a report on Macon.com.

When he ordered her to stop, Albury jumped into her 2001 Toyota Camry and hit the gas, but only her 2-year-old had made it into the passenger side of the car.

As the officer pleaded with Albury to leave the 4-year-old until an ambulance arrived, Albury got out out of the car and picked up the injured child.

“She picks the little boy up and throws him in the car and drives off,” Centerville Police Chief Sidney Andrews said.

Police caught up with Albury's Toyota on Wilson Drive, near the mall. Emergency rescue personnel arrived and transported the child to a local hospital, where he is listed in critical condition with severe head and internal injuries.

“The child is in bad shape,” Andrews said. “It wasn’t looking too good.”

In addition to the 2 toddlers, Albury's sister and niece were also in the car. The women were not charged since they stayed in the car when the shoplifting occurred.

Andrews said he wasn't sure what was taken in the theft.

“I believe it was a couple of T-shirts. I do know it was clothing. It was a misdemeanor amount,” he said. “This certainly was not worth it.”

Albury is charged with with two counts of cruelty to children, reckless conduct and theft by shoplifting.
