DAYTON — Two Dayton delivery drivers were duped and had food orders stolen from the same apartment on Lakebend Drive in Dayton.
Around 1:20 a.m. Nov. 19, a Domino’s Pizza delivery driver reported he had a $12 pizza stolen from him as he went to deliver it to an apartment in the 3800 block of Lakebend Drive. He said the female resident opened the door and snatched the pizza out of his hands before shutting the door again.
The 33-year-old male went back to his store to report the theft to his manager. When they called the customer back she hung up on them.
Then around 2:50 p.m. Nov. 19, Dayton police were notified by a Dragon City employee that a female resident at the same apartment on Lakebend Drive ordered $35 worth of food and didn’t pay when it was delivered.
When the 52-year-old male worker knocked on the door to get payment, the resident gave back half the order and said it was the wrong — still not offering any payment.

— The Little Ripper turned out to be a lifesaver for two Australian swimmers caught in churning surf.
Australian lifeguards were testing a new drone during a practice session at a beach in New South Wales when they received a call about two swimmers caught in 10-foot swells, according to Surf Life Saving New South Wales and The New York Times.
Lifeguard supervisor Jai Sheridan, who was operating the drone, responded and steered it toward the swimmers, releasing a yellow inflatable pod into the water, the Times reported. The swimmers grabbed the pod and were able to navigate safely to shore, Surf Life Saving reported.
The rescue took 70 seconds, Sheridan told the Times.

WILMINGTON, Clinton County — Seventeen cats, most of them feral and unsocial, were rescued from a Wilmington apartment, where they had been abandoned.
Fayette County Regional Humane Society agents were called to the complex, in the 800 block of Xenia Avenue, to help Wilmington police because neither the Clinton County Humane Society nor the Wilmington Area Humane Society has humane agents, Brad Adams, Fayette County humane agent and outreach director, said in a prepared statement.

Seventeen cats were found and removed by the humane agents.
According to FRHS Veterinary Technician and Humane Agent Danyel Bageant, most of the cats were feral and unsocial, clawing at agents.
"Fortunately the cats had healthy body conditions and access to food and water inside of the apartment upon our arrival," Bageant said.
The cats that are candidates for the FRHS adoption program will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for FeLV/FIV, rabies vaccinated, flea treated, and micro-chipped.
A Humane Agent has been in contact with the investigating officer of the Wilmington Police Department since the removal.
