Full o’ beans
The Italians are known for their love of coffee but police in Milan got more than they bargained for during one particular drug bust.
A parcel of Colombian coffee was found to have cocaine packed individually into hundreds of coffee beans. Who has time to do that?
All in all more than 500 coffee beans stuffed with cocaine weighing 2 kg and sealed with black tape were captured.
Police cottoned on to the suspiscious package after noticing the name it was addressed to, “Santino D’Antonio” – a fictional mafia boss in the “John Wick” movie franchise.

Upon questioning the man

Craigslist for hitmen
A Michigan woman looking for someone to muder her ex-husband thought she found the perfect website for her when she went on rentahitman.com.
Unfortunately for her it was of course a huge joke and the webste’s operator contacted the police when the woman entered her details on the website’s form.
The woman was subsequently arrested and charged with murder solicitation and using a computer to commit a crime.
