Man Accidentally Given $3K, Puppy Stolen

Man Accidentally Given $3K, Puppy Stolen

Each week, Patch takes a peek at some of the more surprising, shocking, stunning and occasionally silly police-related incidents reported throughout New Jersey for "OMGs from NJ PDs."

Mo' Money: Police say a ...and that's the problem. He came to a teller with a $300 check, but the teller goofed and handed him a clean $3,000, police said. When the bank contacted him the next day to say it had made an error, the man told the bank he'd lost the envelope ... which didn't sit right with authorities, according to police. He's been charged, because apparently, this isn't really how it works.

Gives New Meaning to "Made Off Like a Prom Dress:" Actually, police say someone made off with prom dressed. A lot of them. Aboiut $20,000 worth, in fact. .

Our Best Wishes: A lot of thefts are heartbreaking—but this one's particularly tough. . The family is also offering a $500 reward for the safe return of the 11-week-old puppy (see the picture at the link). If you have any information on this theft, or if you have seen Fiona, please contact your local police department or 609-994-4722.

Location, Location, Location: If you're going to pick a fight (which we don't suggest), at least pick a good place for it. The front of a state prison isn't it. Police say a man smashed a prison guard’s car window after he stopped in front of Southwoods State Prison to fight with the woman who was riding along in his car, according to NJ.com. He tried to get away, but as it turns out, there are officers in and around prisons. Who knew?
