This undated photo released by the Leicester Police Department shows a fingerprint left in a hunk of Play-Doh that led them to a shoplifting suspect at a Walmart in December 2017. The suspect used the malleable clay-like toy in an apparent attempt to neutralize several electronic anti-theft devices. That attempt failed, but the suspect left a fingerprint impression. Police announced Wednesday, May 2, 2018, that the Connecticut Forensics Laboratory helped find a match for the print. (Leicester Police Department via AP) ORG XMIT: BX101 AP

A woman was seriously injured after being carried two full blocks by a truck in a downtown Montreal hit-and-run. Around 8:10 p.m., police received many 911 calls about the incident at the corner of Notre-Dame and Cathédrale streets. Constable Benoit Boisselle, a spokesman for the SPVM, said a conflict may have started between the victim, a 49-year-old woman, and an individual — or individuals — in a truck near the corner of Robert Bourassa Blvd. and Notre-Dame. She was somehow carried two blocks before falling to the ground. The woman was conscious when transported to hospital and is in stable conditions, police said, but has serious upper and lower body injuries. The suspect, or suspects, left the scene in an unknown direction, Boisselle said. Investigators from the collision squad were on the scene, police said, and several witnesses were co-operating. Police were also looking for video from nearby security cameras.

Organizers say a petition to hold public consultations on systemic racism in Montreal is off to a good start. 15,000 signatures are needed to force the city to hold the consultations. Anti-racism organizations and private citizens will be fanning out across the city to collect signatures over the next three months, organizer Balarama Holness said. Holness was a candidate with Mayor Valérie Plante’s Projet Montréal for mayor of Montreal North in the Nov. 5 election, but he said the petition crosses party lines.“It’s an apolitical initiative and we’re going to need all Montrealers and organizations, with the festival season coming up, to really garner support and get the 15,000 signatures,” he said. According to the “right of initiative” enshrined in the city’s charter, any citizen can petition the city to hold a public consultation on issues in the city. The first step was to collect 25 signatures and submit the draft petition to the city clerk, who must rule that it is admissible. The petition passed that hurdle on April 4. Now the challenge is to collect the signatures — the old-fashioned way, on paper — within 90 days.

Donald reimbursed his personal lawyer for $130,000 in hush money paid to porn actress Stormy Daniels, according to former New York City mayor and member of his legal team Rudy Giuliani. During an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Giuliani said the money to repay Michael Cohen had been “funneled … through the law firm and the president repaid it.” Asked if knew about the arrangement, Giuliani said: “He didn’t know about the specifics of it, as far as I know. But he did know about the general arrangement, that Michael would take care of things like this, like I take care of things like this for my clients. I don’t burden them with every single thing that comes along. These are busy people.” The comments appeared to contradict statements made by several weeks ago, when he said he didn’t know about the payment to Daniels as part of a nondisclosure agreement she signed days before the presidential election. Giuliani later suggested to The Wall Street Journal that while had repaid the $130,000, Cohen had settled the payment to Daniels without ’s knowledge at the time.

A Massachusetts police department says a fingerprint left in a hunk of Play-Doh led them to a shoplifting suspect. Leicester police responded to Walmart on Dec. 11 after an employee found several electronic anti-theft devices that had been covered in the malleable clay-like toy in an apparent attempt to neutralize them. The attempt to disable the spider-wrap devices failed, and the suspect had fled. He did, however, leave a fingerprint impression in the Play-Doh. Police announced this week the Connecticut Forensics Laboratory helped find a match for the print. Police charged 55-year-old Dennis Jackson with unlawful removal of an anti-theft device. Police say he has a long criminal record and faces arrest warrants in at least two other states. Jackson is jailed and it’s not clear if he had a lawyer.
