You might think a world-famous filmmaker and author would be above petty crime. But you would be wrong! Miranda July, the twee mind behind the film “You And Me And Everyone We Know,” has confessed in this week’s issue of The New Yorker to a sordid history of shoplifting. Her first time stealing was during her freshman year of college when she nabbed a package of Neosporin. The minute a guard apprehended her, she wet her pants. And if you think that an incident of public peeing might have put the woman off from shoplifting, you would be wrong again! July continued to shoplift at the grocery store and even at Goodwill. (Yes, this woman stole from charity. Oof.) If you ever go to one of Miranda July’s book signings, watch your purse. [New Yorker]

Alas, Miranda July isn’t the only celeb with sticky fingers. Here are 10 more female celebs who have (allegedly) given themselves a five finger discount.

A Criminal We Can Get Behind: Man Steals Bacon From House

Look, we’re not advocating criminal activity; we’re just saying that if you’re going to steal something from a stranger’s house, why not take some bacon? Like this as-yet-unidentified thief from Red Hill, Surry, England, who surreptitiously stole a telephone and a packet of bacon from a house. While the telephone has since been recovered, the bacon is still on the lam (or in the thief’s belly, duh).

Said Detective Con Knowles, who is diligently working the case, “The victims are at a loss to understand why someone would break in to their house and steal a packet of bacon and we are equally stumped as to who this potentially peckish suspect is.” [BBC] Keep reading »

Tea Soothes Criminal

A thief with a knife came at a woman and her six-month-old baby as they walked down the hallway in a Tokyo apartment building. The armed man demanded money, but when she told him she had none, he barged into her apartment. The woman made him a cup of tea, and the thief put his knife away and talked about his life for 20 minutes. Then, the woman gave him $93 and he left. Police were unable to catch the man. My question is: What kind of tea did she give him? I could use some of that. [Reuters] Keep reading »

The Daily Squeeze: A Child Dominatrix, Expensive Texts, And A Thief In The Bed

  • A man and a woman have been accused to training the woman’s child to be a dominatrix, selling her sexual services, and photographing some of the acts. The child, who is now 20, was 12 years old when this started. [CBS News]
  • It costs more to send a friend one megabyte of data via text than it costs to transmit the same amount of data from the Hubble space telescope to Earth. [AHN]
  • I think this happens at least once a month, somewhere in the world. A woman woke up and discovered that the naked man who had slipped into her bed in the middle of the night was a thief, not her husband. [Reuters]
