UPPER DARBY, Pa. — Police in the Philadelphia suburbs said the Man of Steal was undone by his Superman T-shirt.
Kyree Henneghan, 18, was charged with two Upper Darby burglaries that police linked him to because of the shirt.
Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said a man wearing a T-shirt with the Superman shield broke into one home on Sept. 24 and a second on Tuesday. In that heist, the homeowner walked in and Henneghan bolted with a laptop computer.
Henneghen made a not-so-speedy getaway on his BMX bicycle and police found him a short time later — still wearing the Superman shirt — trying to sell the computer to men in a car.
Henneghan is in the Delaware County jail.
MISTAKEN TEXT RESULTS IN MARRIAGE
ST. LOUIS — A married St. Louis couple is sharing their unlikely love story about three years after the mistaken text message that forged their relationship.
Kasey Bergh accidentally sent a text to Henry Glendening, a stranger, in June 2012. The pair continued communicating after realizing they had a lot in common, sharing recommendations on books, movies and music, before meeting in person for the first time a week later.
Despite a 30-year age difference, Bergh and Glendening’s connection flourished, and they moved in together within two months.
Exactly two years after the errant text message, Glendening proposed to Bergh at the rooftop restaurant where they ended their first meeting, with her favorite song, “Thank You” by Led Zeppelin, playing in the background.
The couple married June 27 in front of a graffiti wall near the St. Louis riverfront.
OREGON HORSES FEAST ON CARROT LOAD
BEND, Ore. — Carrots might no longer tempt horses at one Oregon rescue ranch — because they’ve been munching on tons of them for days.
The facility in the central Oregon city of Bend accepted a donation of 44,000 pounds, or 22 tons, of carrots after a truck carrying them crashed.
Equine Outreach operator Joan Steelhammer was offered the vegetables Friday after they were deemed unfit for human consumption. She said the haul filled a 53-foot semitrailer up to 5 feet deep.
Volunteer Gene Storm said about 80 horses have been chomping through the massive stock, and animal owners have been invited to help reduce the pile, too.
