Canadian UFO reports up 25% in 2008

Some were strange lights. Some appeared to be cigar-shaped spaceships. Canadians reported a record number of UFO sightings last year, according to Winnipeg-based Ufology Research.

The volunteer group of a half-dozen researchers noted 1,004 reported sightings in 2008 – up more than 25 per cent from the previous year and the highest amount in the 20 years Ufology has been keeping track.

“It’s astonishing to me that we had such a dramatic increase,” spokesman Chris Rutkowski said.

“It could be an indication that there’s actually something up there seen in greater numbers than ever before, it could be that there are perhaps more military flights, it could be that people are more able to access websites where they can report the UFOs.”

Crime tip: Don’t text a drug buy to a cop’s wife

When sending a text message to arrange a drug deal, it’s a good idea to dial carefully.

Police say that was not the case for Alicja S. Sawicki, who was arrested after misdialing and texting details of a drug transaction to the wife of an off-duty Sheboygan police officer.

Oooops! You mean you’re a cop??

Had Diego Jose Feliciano been satisfied with merely flipping off a motorist on Florida’s Turnpike Friday morning, it’s possible he could still be a free man.

Instead, he allegedly waved a revolver at the driver who, unlucky for him, happened to be a Miami police officer. The Hollywood man wound up on his knees on the highway with his hands behind his head as a Miramar police officer placed him under arrest.

Feliciano, 56, was charged with aggravated assault, according to Miami police.
