When scamming WalMart be sure the store isn’t full of cops

That didn’t stop Calvin E. Fluckes Jr., 21, from pulling into the parking lot next to 40 marked squad cars, police said. He apparently was unfazed by the police presence as he tried to pay for merchandise with a poorly photocopied check for $847.83.

The cashier called over a manager, who alerted one of the 80 officers who happened to be in the store.

“He was immediately apprehended,” Chesterfield Township police Lt. David Marker told the Detroit Free Press. “I can’t even imagine what he was thinking.”

Li was not the only person to see the dragon that evening. Law students Li Bing and Zhao saw it also. Li Bing said, “When I was leaving the library, I heard a girl yelling ‘Look! A dragon is flying in the clouds!’ I looked up, and I saw a red dragon-shaped object flying southeast. After just a minute, it flew away.” Zhao added, “The sky was completely illuminated at that moment.”
