‘Stolen’ hot dog, 99 cents. Baffled jurors, priceless

Call it the great hot dog caper. Or maybe the greatly overblown hot dog caper would be more accurate. One day last December, Eastern Washington University student John Richardson got himself a German sausage at the self-serve counter at Mitchell’s IGA in Cheney. He ate it as he shopped for peanut butter (crunchy), jelly, bread and other items. When he left, he forgot to pay for the 99-cent dog – though he did pay for more than $28 in groceries.

Three charged in home invasion

Three suspects have been charged in a gunpoint home-invasion robbery in Cheney last week. Merle Leon Weeks, 17, Meshion M. Woodruff, 19, and Samuel Chavez, 23, are accused of breaking into their marijuana dealer’s home, handcuffing and binding a man with an iPod cord, and stealing cash, pot and electronics.
