Teeth thief

Yorktown, Indiana, Sept. 23 (AP): A man accused of snatching another man’s false teeth straight from his mouth during a fight has been charged with robbery.

If convicted, Robert Henry Stahl, 62, could face two to eight years in prison. Billie Townsend, 56, told police he went to a bar on July 27 to pay Stahl money he owed him, then Stahl asked him to go outside and started punching him. During the fight, Stahl allegedly put Townsend in a headlock and removed his false teeth. “He said, ‘You ain’t getting these back’,” Townsend told the police.

Tim Janus, 30, of New York City, won $3,000 in prize money. The 18-ounce (510-gm) burritos were made of rice, black beans, pork, cheese and a mild sauce wrapped in a tortilla.
