Here's some of the more interesting stuff I found this morning in the mainstream media...
A- Herald: Another South Florida "successs story."
For $5.9 million, you, too, can live like an alleged Ponzi schemer.B- Herald: Video, waiting in line for an iPhone on South Beach.
Nevin Shapiro's waterfront North Bay Road home in Miami Beach -- now owned by the bankruptcy court -- is on the market.
It sports a stunning courtyard entrance, custom-made built-in aquariums, high-end fixtures and furnishings, and a to-die-for view of Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline.
Meanwhile Shapiro, accused of bilking investors of at least $80 million by selling stakes in bogus wholesale grocery deals, now awaits trial in an austere cell at Hudson County Correctional Center in Kearny, N.J.
The 6,432-square-foot home has five bedrooms -- including a second-floor master-suite with a long walk-in closet, sitting room and private office that looks out on the courtyard.
He spent $400,000 on Miami Heat season floor seats, hung out with then-Miami Heat center Shaquille O'Neal, as well as Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, who cruised on Shapiro's $1.5 million Riviera yacht.
That yacht is no longer docked behind the North Bay Road home: It was sold to cover fees for Shapiro's initial criminal defense attorney, Tabas said.
Most of Shapiro's personal belongings are also gone from the home, including most of his purported sports memorabilia. Only a trophy and two helmets -- a black Pittsburgh Steelers helmet and an autographed UM Hurricanes helmet -- remain.
C- Herald: Paper or plastic?
The part-time cop says the arrested man kept trying to spit on police. So he put a paper bag over his head.D- Herald: Morin.
Now, the cop is out of a job.
Investigators concluded part-time reserve Officer John Wezkiewicz's conduct ``shed a negative light'' on the agency and that he should have used a department-issued protective hood instead of the bag. A hood, they said, would not ``be falsely perceived as an attempt to humiliate an individual.''
E- NBC Miami: *Gong*
Police are looking for two men who stole a truck with a large amount of lingerie from a South Florida storage business.F- WPLG: Anyone missing anything this morning?
The descriptions aren't great, but if you see a pair of guys wearing a lot of lingerie around Miami, that's probably them.
A girl was found alone at a Miami Shores restaurant Thursday evening.G- WPTV: If you think your house is a little messy, this should make you feel better.
The girl, believed to be about 2 years old, was found at a Chuck E. Cheese in Miami Shores.
The girl has brown hair and brown eyes and was wearing a striped shirt when she was found.
She is being cared for by the Department of Children and Families.
BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - A Boynton Beach couple faces child neglect charges after police say they found their home without electricity and in a state of disrepair..
Inside officers say they found an inoperable toilet, feces on the bathroom floor, blood droplets on the floor throughout the home, an empty refrigerator covered in mold and several items cluttering the house. They included recycling bins, electric lawn tools, a motorcycle, and various propane grills. A kitchen sink was also filled with dirty dishes and the outside of the home smelled like human feces, according to the report.
One of the home's residents told police that the electricity had been turned off for one-and-a-half months.
