Cops Say Suspect Wrote Own Bail Check Before Stabbing Man
Cops say a South Carolina woman not only lured a man to her home with the intention of attacking him, but also thought to pre-write a check meant to pay her bond after her inevitable arrest.
Cops have just revealed they found the victim hiding in front of the house when they responded to the call last Tuesday; according to WIS-TV, he suffered a non life-threatening injury to his side. Saundra Gary allegedly told the unidentified victim to visit because she had something for him.
Gary was all smiles in her mug shot after she was charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature. It's not known if the check she wrote before the attack was enough to cover the five thousand dollar bond a judge imposed.

Home Ssssssweet Home: Canadian wildlife officials recently removed 102 snakes from a home near Regina. Megan Lawrence removed the snakes and tells CBC: "We got a call from a family that found some garter snakes in their basement, and as they investigated further they found a lot more. And then they started finding them in other areas of the house, like kitchens and bedrooms. So they decided then it wasn't a good idea to have them there anymore. For the most part they were in tight spaces. Cracks in the floors, cracks in the walls, between boxes, underneath things — anywhere they could get into basically. They were already starting to go into hibernation. So we just were, you know, picking up boxes and things off the floor and just found them and just caught them by hand. And then we were transporting them in buckets and pillowcases."
