Yesterday was Prime Day for Amazon.com and Amazon.ca and no surprise Amazon.com crashed as soon as Prime Day started. Some customers were unable to access the sales. I adore Amazon.ca by the way, the Prime membership is totally worth it.

Jeff Bezos the founder of Amazon.com celebrated Amazon Prime Day yesterday with a new net worth of over $150 billion. Wow could you image? Well he now has $55 billion more than Bill Gates.

Warren Buffett donated $3.4 billion to charity yesterday, I loved that guy! The shares of Berkshire Hathaway stock went to Bill and Melinda Gates’s foundation as well as several charities tied to Warren’s family. He is one billionaire who just keeps giving, I wish they all would do that!

Can you finish off a 40 oz porterhouse steak, anyone? Not many can but Shaquille O’Neal can and he did. He was DJing at an Atlantic City resort and casino when he ate his $120 steak the other day! Well he is a big guy!

That’s what’s trending today!

What’s your favourite summer drink?

By | Leah Holiove, News

I am a lover of wine,  I can drink wine throughout the year but during the summer it’s a different story. I do enjoy my favourite sauvignon blanc don’t get me wrong but I also love to have a nice glass of sangria or two or three. I find sangria to be the best summer drink, it’s light and fruity and just perfect to quench your thirst on a hot summer weekend!

I will even make it myself and leave it in the fridge over night so it’s ready for the next day. I find the key to a great sangria is using burgundy, it gives it a very nice deep purple look and it has such a great flavour.

What is your favourite summer drink?

Oh Donald Trump, of course he is trending…when is he not? Well Fortune Magazine claims he wants to redesign Air Force One so it looks more ‘American’. He is planning to ditch the plane’s light blue trim in favor of a red, white and blue scheme. Oh that man.

LeBron James has been carrying around a $41,000 man bag made from alligator skin. I don’t mind the murse (man purse) but I do mind that it is made of animal, being a big animal lover that I am. Also seriously $41,000??? I guess no one would really try and steal it away from him.

Anthony Bourdain’s show, ”Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” has been nominated for six Emmy awards. So sad that he won’t be there to collect the trophy should his show win and I think it will.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos plans to charge passengers $300,000 to ride his rocket into space. He plans to begin offering space flights in the near future, I think I will wait till all the kinks are worked out. 

And that’s whats trending!

Retail theft operation bust results in over $100,000 forfeited to civil forfeiture

By | Leah Holiove, News

As a result of a successful investigation by the Surrey RCMP’s Property Crime Target Team (PCTT), a large retail theft operation has been shut down and a sizable amount of offence related property has been forfeited by the BC Civil Forfeiture Office (CFO).

On March 2017, Surrey RCMP’s PCTT began an in-depth investigation into the sale of stolen merchandise on online marketplaces. Officers identified and arrested two individuals who were allegedly stealing select branded merchandise from multiple clothing stores and then allegedly selling the stolen merchandise online. Search warrants were executed on a condominium located in Surrey, a rented storage unit located in Maple Ridge, and a vehicle believed to be used to transport the stolen goods. A large amount of merchandise and other stolen goods were recovered with an approximate value of $122,000.

in April 2017 the Surrey RCMP Asset Forfeiture Team (AFT) referred the offence related property to the BC Civil Forfeiture Office (CFO) for review. In July 2018 the Surrey RCMP AFT received notice from the CFO indicating that the condominium and vehicle were successfully forfeited and that the net proceeds paid into the Civil Forfeiture account were approximately $102,000.

Alan Smith is now charged with several offences including Theft Under $5,000, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5,000, Assault a Peace Officer, Obstruct Peace Officer, and Trafficking in Property Obtained by Crime. Kimberly Gascon is now charged with Theft Under $5,000. Both individuals are still awaiting trial.
