RADCLIFF, Ky. (AP) — Police are investigating after finding $3 million worth of missing shoes at a central Kentucky home.

Media outlets report that officers with the Radcliff Police Department confiscated thousands of pairs of Nike shoes that were scattered in front of the home.

According to a search warrant filed last week, the shoes were supposed to be shipped in 2009 from a Nike distribution center in Tennessee to another one in Texas, but never made it.

The women who were in possession of the shoes said they had purchased them from someone else and didn't know they were stolen. They said they were selling them at a flea market.

Police are investigating. No arrests have been made.

Husband, wife in 80s scare off would-be robber PDF  | Print |  E-mail

MILTON, Wash. (AP) — A Washington state couple in their 80s say they managed to spook a would-be robber who burst into their home shortly after they returned from a Tacoma casino where they won $500.

KOMO-TV reports (http://is.gd/wWGCWW ) Jim and Betty Lilja of Milton wonder whether they were followed home.

They say a man in his 20s barged into their home the night of Friday, May 23, with his hand in his pocket. He demanded their money and threatened to shoot. Jim Lilja says he told the intruder he was 85 years old, so "if you want to shoot, go ahead and shoot."

When the intruder left them alone in the living room to search the bedroom, the couple ran outside, and Jim Lilja decided to push the alarm button on his car key. That sent the robber racing out of the house and into a waiting car — without the couple's cash.

Milton police are investigating.

Puppy drives car into Massachusetts pond PDF  | Print |  E-mail

CANTON, Mass. (AP) — After going for a walk, a German shepherd puppy owned by a Massachusetts man decided to go for a drive — straight into a pond.

John Costello tells WFXT-TV (http://bit.ly/1pLU4WS ) that his 12-week-old puppy, Rosie, was so excited Sunday after going for a walk at Bolivar Pond in Canton that she jumped in his running car, hit the gear stick and shifted into drive, before falling onto the gas pedal and sending the car careening into the water.

A couple of passers-by saw the commotion and helped Costello rescue Rosie. Nobody was injured, but Costello says the Dodge Neon is a total loss.

The 911 call surprised even police.

Officer Robert Quirk says he's never heard of a dog driving into a pond.
