[DAILYVOICE] A 63-year-old unemployed Colombian national living in Englewood repeatedly molested a 10-year-old child, authorities charged.
Luis G. Ocampo remained held Friday in the Bergen County Jail following his arrest the day before, records show.
Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said his Special Victims Unit and Englewood police investigated a report that led to Ocampo’s arrest "regarding the sexual assault of a ten year-old juvenile on multiple occasions."
Ocampo will remain held until a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on charges of sexual assault and child endangerment, the prosecutor said.
As of Friday afternoon, ICE hadn't issued a detainer for him.
[DAILYVOICE] A man caught secretly recording females in bathroom stalls at a Barnes & Noble on Route 3 in Clifton was carrying child porn videos, authorities said. Confession: I like girls. I like naked girls even better. Girls without boobies are "cute", not "sexually desirable." I've never had the urge to watch girls of any age poop. This guy's nasty.
Juan Mejia, 44, of Paterson, was being held Friday in the Passaic County Jail pending a detention hearing this coming Wednesday.
Mejia was arrested for secretly videotaping two separate females who were using the bathroom stalls, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Clifton Police Chief Mark Centurione said Friday.He was charged with separate counts of child endangerment for the videos and could face additional counts as an investigation continues, authorities said.
[TAMPABAY] The three men who held up a CVS Pharmacy on New Year’s Day planned their moves meticulously.The robbers hit at 5 a.m. They wore blue surgical gloves so they wouldn’t leave prints. They waved guns at employees and bound several of them with zip ties. Detectives would later review store surveillance video that showed one of the suspects casing the place the day before.
And they made off with a boatload of drugs in white garbage bags ‐ more than 10,000 pills that contained the opioids hydrocodone and oxycodone, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. It had an estimated street value of about $320,000.
But as detectives investigated the area around the store, located at 30387 U.S. 19 N, they started noticing pill bottles, according to an arrest warrant. The robbers, it appeared, had emptied the bottles as they made their getaway, then tossed them out the window of their car.
Detectives started following the pill bottles like bread crumbs, eventually leading to a house at 1045 West Ave. There, they found the same White Chrysler 200 that had been recorded on surveillance camera fleeing the scene. White cotton and a pill bottle cap lay on the ground nearby.
The deputies detained the two men inside the Chrysler: Christopher Rachell Jr. and David Dobbins, both 19. They matched the descriptions of two of the robbers seen inside the store, detectives said.
They found more evidence on Dobbins’s cellphone. He had recorded videos of the suspects in the same room as a bed strewn with pills and clear plastic baggies. Videos also showed them handling a white garbage bag near the pills ‐ the same type of bag with which the suspects were seen fleeing, reports state.
The videos helped them identify Roy Lampkin as a collaborator. The 18-year-old could be seen in the video handling a clear plastic bag that contained round white pills, reports state, and his fingerprints were found on one of the white garbage bags and on a plastic bag of opioid pills.
Though the warrant does not name Lampkin as one of the suspected robbers, it says he was captured on CVS’s surveillance video before the crime. He entered the building at about 3:52 a.m. on Jan. 1 and asked the pharmacist a question. He was arrested on Feb. 5 on charge of drug trafficking.
Rachell and Dobbins were arrested Jan. 1. Each faces one count of armed robbery, two counts of trafficking in illegal drugs and three counts of false imprisonment. Dobbins remains in the Pinellas County jail, held in lieu of $280,000 bail. Rachell, who also faces a charge of possession of oxycodone, is being held in lieu of $282,000 bail.
If we have an outbreak in America, they can blame it on Trump. And deliberately botch the response, so that can be laid at his feet, too. Think of Katrina and how Bush was blamed for it.

The president became "furious" with senior advisers after learning the 14 Americans who tested positive had been put on a plane with healthy passengers, according to The Washington Post. One official told the paper that the failure to inform Trump of the decision in advance of the plane's departure was a “big operational mistake.”
Fire whoever made that decision

“These individuals were moved in the most expeditious and safe manner to a specialized containment area on the evacuation aircraft to isolate them in accordance with standard protocol,” the State Department and Department of Health and Human Services said in a joint statement Monday.
If you knew that you weren't suppose to transport infected people why did the plane have a specialized containment area to handle all those people? Someone needs their butt shipped to Utqiagvik, AK.
[Jpost] Iranians are scared and angry. Their government has been lying to them and their media was instructed not to report on the coronavirus outbreak as it rapidly spread from the religious city of Qom to other cities. On Saturday, Tehran was awash with rumors and riots occurred in the city of Talesh on the Caspian sea due to a quarantine.
"The situation inside the hospital is very scary and terrifying," one man tweeted. "Even the hospital medical staff, some of whom are infected with the coronavirus, are terrified." In Isfahan medical students protested at the local University of Medical Sciences due to lack of protective gear. Iranians are well educated and they know the risks as their government tried over seventy hours to stop the spread of information about the crises.
By Saturday evening at least six people were dead but official figures put the number of infections only in the twenties. In fact rumors were spreading that the numbers could be in the hundreds or a thousand cases. In Iraq the authorities moved to shut the border and stop Iranian pilgrims from coming from Qom. In addition Iran ...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate JewsZionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol... sought to clamp down on travel. A Lebanese woman returning from Qom tested positive in Leb. Leb’s Health Minister, who is linked to the pro-Iranian Hezbollah, said everything was in order.
In The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...Qatar's satrapy in Asia Minor... the authorities, acting on information they received from Iran that was not available for the media, sought to monitor and interdict Iranians who might have the virus. Kuwait also expressed concern over Iranian arrivals and travel to Iran. In Iraq’s Maysan the governor decided to try to prevent Iranians from arriving. Already the virus was in Tehran, Rasht and other cities. Governments in the region, evidently aware of the crises more than Iran’s people were aware, began to seek to stop Shi’ite pilgrims from going to Iran.
Yet Iranians were urged by their government to congregate in confined spaces on Friday to vote. The regime wanted the turnout to grow beyond the 11 million who were estimated to have voted.
Yet Iranians were urged by their government to congregate in confined spaces on Friday to vote. The regime wanted the turnout to grow beyond the 11 million who were estimated to have voted. The government, seeking to censor information on the spread of the virus, likely contributed to misinformation by pushing the polls to stay open later with a national health emergency looming. Yet Fars News, Tasnim and other news outlets did not warn of the crises. The only information came later on Saturday when reports said that there was price gouging for protective medical masks. Anadolu, a Ottoman Turkish news agency, photographed dozens of people in Iran already wearing the masks. The government sought to put price controls on masks so people could afford them.
In the afternoon on Saturday officials moved to close all schools on Sunday and Monday. A mayor, named Mortaza Rahmanzeda of a district in Tehran was taken to hospital. Rumors claimed he was badly ill from the virus. Other officials appeared to be concerned they might be sick. Mohsen Rafsanjani, head of the city council of Tehran, said he was visiting a hospital. By the evening Iran’s media announced universities would close. But media still wasn’t allowed to report the reason. Educational facilities, according to Fars News, will be closed in Tehran, Alborz, Qazvin, Markzai, Qom, Hamedan, Isfahan, Gilan and Mazandaran provinces. There are thirty provinces in Iran, but there are the most central. It appears the virus may not have spread to outlying areas, such as the Kurdistan region. But the Kurdistan region of Iraq is taking no chances, quarantining people in Soran and considering to close the border. In Pakistain also some voices are calling for border closures. In Iran some expressed anger at Mahan Air and other airlines for continuing to fly pilgrims.
The Minister of Science spoke out Saturday about the coronavirus precautions. He urged people at University to visit health center "as soon as they feel symptoms of a cold, flue or the like. Take the necessary measures to treat them at the centers. In Alborz a university head encouraged most people not to wear a mask. He said that news about the virus must come only from the Ministry of Health and that people should avoid rumors. There are no cases in the province, he claimed, according to ISNA in Iran.
The lack of response by authorities and rumors have caused a tense situation in Iran. It also appears to be contributing to the spread of the virus to other countries. Iraq’s Moqtada Tater al-Sadr ...hereditary Iraqi holy man and leader of a political movement in Iraq. He spends most of his time in Iran, safely out of the line of fire, where he's learning to be an ayatollah. Formerly an Iranian catspaw, though lately he's gagged over some of their more outlandish antics... flew home to Iraq as the virus spread in Qom. Oddly he did not have to be quarantined. Iran is already on edge because of protests last year where the authorities killed 1,500 demonstrators. But the authorities continue to provide little information on the extent of the outbreak. A head of a unit at Qom University said he had received no statistics. Women at a university in Tehran protested the lack of information. In Talesh people continued to protest mysterious closures and quarantines. Tear gas was used outside at least one hospital. In Rasht fires were lit and the authorities cracked down on protests. "They resort to oppression instead of a solution to the coronavirus crises," wrote locals.
News programs in the evening in Iran gave advise on wearing masks and cleaning one’s hands. But they didn’t explain how to best prevent the spread of the virus. They gave only "comfort" one woman tweeted, complaining of the lack of information.
Kuwait Airways says it will be sending a number of flights to evacuate 700 passengers from the Iranian city of Mashhad after Kuwait halted all flights to and from Iran a day earlier amid fears from a #coronavirus outbreak.https://t.co/S4PmFhLR6c
[ToloNews] Farmers and factory owners in the capital say they are now waiting for more than 100 tons (metric) of pine nuts to be exported to China.
The alternative being getting close to various Chinamen silently infected with coronavirus and bringing it home, whereas now they can offer their crop to those who previously bought Chinese pine nuts...
The Chamber of Commerce and Investments admitted that flights to China are suspended due to the spread of the coronavirus.
"It's been a long time since our export to China first stopped. Our warehouses are full of pine nuts," said Sher Ali Zadran, pine nut businessman.
According to companies exporting pine nuts, one kilogram of pine nuts in a Chinese market will sell for up to 2,800 Afghanis, and each kilogram of clean pine nuts in these markets can earn up 7,000 Afghanis.
"Although flights to China have declined, this has not had much impact on our exports. We are already exporting to other countries around the world," said Sayed Zaman Hashemi, the CEO of Chamber of Trade and Investment.
The pine nut export season starts every year in September and lasts for up to three months, but this year, due to delays in exports to China, bulk pine nuts that were prepared to be exported to China have remained in warehouses.
