10. Boy, 5, Wandering Schnucks Alone At Night


Schnucks made crime headlines in May for more than just its massive credit card security breach. On a Friday night in the first week of the month, employees at the Loughborough Avenue Schnucks were quite alarmed to find a five-year-old boy wandering alone with a dog.

It was even more alarming when he told the employees that he didn't know his own last name. And he was, apparently, hungry for food.
