A group of suspected thieves in Kern County may need to learn the concept of "unmarked bills."
A restaurant known as The Homestead in the high desert town of Inyokern had a tradition of customers hanging dollar bills on its walls, usually inscribing them with messages and other distinguishing details.
A Starbucks customer stole a tip jar with $25 in it from a drive-through in League City.
League City Police Lt. Bruce Whitten said the theft happened just after 3 p.m. Sunday at the Starbucks at 100 E. Main Street.
Minutes after his younger brother was arrested for obstructing police officers responding to a carjacking and shooting, 72-year-old Bobby Unser received the same charge in August 2006. Police state that the three-time Indianapolis 500 winner arrived at a roadblock his brother had just attempted to bypass and, after refusing several officers' orders to return to his Dodge, Al was taken to a Bernalillo County sheriff's substation and charged.
