NEWScoop: Sledge Hammers, Stolen Guns, a Child Sale, Sandwich Sandwiched and Ruggles
Ruggles is as Ruggles Does
First there was 11th Street Cafe. It defied the odds for 35 years. It added a prefix to its name – “Ruggles” 11th Street Cafe. The food and professional demeanor of the servers remained unchanged. A sign was covered up. Someone named Sue (probably not a boy) came into the picture. Now it is once again keeping its name, only to change the suffix from “11th Street Cafe” to “Green.” Is their substantial change underneath that new suit or is this the same guy that shredded through office hours playing spider solitaire?

How Does One Rob a Gun Store?
Hundreds of firearms have been stolen from pawn shops and gun stores. Isn’t that shocking to anyone else? I really thought that if any consumer-based establishment could derail a robbery, it’d be one of these two. That shoots a big ol’ hole in my misguided assumptions. Visit ABC13 for more.
Grandmother Not Grand On Having Grandchild
Maybe she should have thought of that before she had a child. Where’s the forethought? She had to have expected that her children would inevitably reproduce. Suck it up, MeeMaw. It’s bad form to try and give your child’s child away like that. Visit ABC13 for more.
Sandwich Thief Sandwiched by Police
That’s a beaut of lead in, right? I took that from the FBI’s book. I picture the tactical team performing a Bash Brothers-esque move, debilitating his greedy hoagie loving hands faster than you can say “triple deak”—his body upended over the boards counter into the laps of Subway’s sports fans employees and patrons. According to KHOU’s video, that’s not how it happened. Meh. Visit KHOU for more.
Sledge Hammer Stealers
This is shaping up to be a day of crime here in Houston. Thieving. Selling things that aren’t yours to sell. Suing over rights. Why not a smash and grab at a jewelry store to add to the list? Visit ABC13 for more.
