Robber has regrets
Authorities say a man accused of robbing a bank in western North Dakota called 911 three days later from his home in Kansas and told officers to arrest him for “making a mistake.” Court papers say Kent Anthony Clemens, 53, held up the Gate City Bank in Williston on July 18. On July 21, he turned himself in to police in Topeka, Kan. Authorities say Clemens was sitting on his front porch when police arrived and held out his hands to be handcuffed.
Human organs in storage
A former medical examiner crudely preserved human brains, hearts and lungs in soda cups and plastic food containers found inside a storage unit in Florida, authorities said Tuesday. A man bought the contents of a storage unit at auction last week in Pensacola and made the gruesome discovery after being overpowered by a strange smell while sifting through furniture and boxes.
Animal cruelty plea
A former employee of a Butterball plant in North Carolina has pleaded guilty to animal cruelty after he was seen on videotape abusing turkeys. Brian Douglas was one of several people shown stomping, kicking and bashing live birds at the Shannon Butterball Farm in Hoke County last year. Six other workers were also charged in the case. Douglas entered his plea Tuesday. He will serve 30 days in jail, followed by six months of probation and 36 months of supervised probation.
High-flying career ends
A flight attendant is landing in the Guinness World Records book after spending 63 years moving about the cabin. Ron Akana, 83, worked his last route over the weekend on a United Airlines flight from Denver to Kauai, ending his career in the state where it began. Hawaii, however, wasn’t his final stop. His destination was retirement in Boulder, Colo., where he has been living since 2002 to be closer to his grandchildren.
