Police: N.J. man robs shoe store for second time

Police say a man who just completed a 15-year prison term for robbing a New Jersey shoe store went back there the day after his release and committed the same crime. Toms River police say that on Saturday afternoon 40-year-old Christopher Miller went to the store he robbed in 1999. They say he demanded cash from two employees, eventually took a cash register containing $389 and left with the employees' cellphones. Police soon tracked down Miller and found the employees' phones in a shopping center garbage can. They found the money in a downspout in the back of the building.

School bus driver charged with DUI

Police say a Pennsylvania bus driver who took children back to school instead of driving them home after classes ended has acknowledged eating gin-soaked raisins. Police in Columbia County say they've filed charges including DUI and reckless driving against Benton Area School District driver Jennifer Watson. Students told police that Watson was yelling, cursing and swerving last week. One student says Watson appeared to be driving her morning bus route even though it was 3:40 p.m. Police told WNEP-TV they were waiting for Watson along with her boss when she brought the children back to school.
