Boynton Beach man carjacks woman on their first date
Nemeha Millen had a first date shell never forget: good conversation, a long walk in the park, and getting carjacked. On her 21st birthday, the Florida woman went out with 19-year-old Donald Bernard McGee Jr., whom she told police she met after he started sending her text messages. The two strolled through a Boynton Beach park until around 10 p.m. when the couple went to a nearby Wendys to wait for McGees brother. But instead of stealing a kiss, McGee alledgedly whipped out a gun and stole her car, according to the Florida Sun-Sentinel. I grabbed my purse and then he fought me for my purse with a gun, Milien told WPBF-TV. He pointed it at my face. Officers chased McGee on Interstate 95 for about eight miles until he lost control of the vehicle. He faces charges of armed carjacking, robbery with a firearm and possession of marijuana.

Skull parts found at Ft. Lauderdalesairport
Baggage screeners at Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International got a surprise recently when investigators say they found what appeared to be skull parts and teeth in the belongings of two women. According to the Broward Sheriffs Office, the women, whose names have not been released, were passing through security in Terminal 1 to catch an Airtran flight to Baltimore when the TSA agents spotted what appeared to be remains inside some wrapped ceramic pottery. The skull fragments were mixed in with dirt and rocks inside the pots. Mike Jachles, with the Broward Sheriffs Office, said the two women had arrived in Miami from Cuba two days ago. While in Cuba, they purchased the pots for their homes. Jachles said the women were told the pots would ward off evil spirits. Jachles says the women spoke with homicide detectives and were allowed to leave. Officials say the women took a later flight to Baltimore. BSO said there does not appear to be any foul play and the pots have been handed over to the Broward Medical Examiners Office for investigation. The Department of Homeland Security is now handling the case.
