iPad Stolen from JFK Airport

Heard of the Capper that nabbed 1.5 million worth of iPads from John F. Kennedy Airport? Coincidentally, the heist happened in the same building used in the movie Goodfellas. You can't make this stuff up! If you haven't heard, here's the story:

Right before midnight on Monday the 12th, robbers used JFK airport forklifts to load two pallets of iPads onto a truck. An airport worker, who was returning from break, saw and confronted the group but was unable to stop them. Law enforcement believes this was an inside job. It has been reported that airport worker, Renal Rene Richardson, was arrested as an accomplice for allegedly acting as a look-out. The FBI was tipped off by other workers who reported that Mr. Richardson made inquiries as to where the iPads were being stored and the location of the forklifts. The other suspects remain at large.

Snoop Dogg Detained For Marijuana Possession

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Drugs, Legal Issues,

Snoop DoggSnoop Dogg was detained in Norway yesterday after entering the country with eight grams of marijuana.

The "Drop it Like it's Hot" hitmaker reportedly arrived at Kjevic Airport in Kristiansand with the drugs, which were detected by a sniffer dog, and 224,500 kroner ($75,300) in cash, which is 196,000 kroner ($33,300) above the legal limit.

A customs official said the rapper was fined 52,000 kroner ($8,800) for the violations, and local laws state people carrying anything less than 15 grammes is merely punishable by a fine. Snoop - whose real name is Calvin Broadus - was in the country to perform at the Hove festival last night in the southern town of Kristiansand.

But it's not the first time this year that the 40-year-old rapper has been busted for drugs: he was arrested at Sierra Blanca, Texas in January at a border control checkpoint - the same one where country singer Willie Nelson was busted in 2010 - when a sniffer dog found marijuana on his tour bus.

The "Teenage Dream" singer and her husband-to-be, comedy actor Russell Brand, tried to avoid photographers at Mumbai airport yesterday, with Katy seemingly determined to keep her "Nath" - a traditional piece of Indian jewelry extending from her right ear to her nostril - under wraps.

The couple then flew to the city of Jaipur before taking a three hour drive to the luxury Aman-I-Khas resort, on the edge of a tiger reserve, where they are believed to be tying the knot on Saturday. Katy's parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, had earlier arrived at the resort - where guests sleep in 'eco-chic' luxury tents. Rihanna was also expected to arrive yesterday.

Russell, 35, and Katy, 25, are believed to have booked the resort for a week, and hired wedding planner Mindy Weiss to arrange the ceremony. They are rumored have four days of activities planned for guests in the run up to the ceremony, including a tiger safari and feast. A "Katy and Russell kicked things off by holding a Lagna, or engagement, ceremony," a source revealed.

Paris and Nicky Hilton in Japan

Even though Paris Hilton made a plea bargain in the states for her cocaine troubles, the country of Japan seems to not care for any of her “It wasn’t my purse”-like excuses, as authorities there detained the socialite upon her arrival.

Paris and her sister flew to Japan in order to debut their Fall/Winter collections. Instead, they were held and interrogated Paris about her cocaine possession (and her well-publicized obstruction of justice) for six hours until police decided to deny her entrance into the country.

There is no word yet as to whether or not Paris will stay until the issue is resolved or fly back to the United States.

Plane Nightmare for Ashley Olsen

Ashley Olsen with Justin BarthaLooks like someone should’ve listened to Megan Fox’s flying advice.

‘s plane was forced to make an emergency landing yesterday.

The 23-year-old actress-and-designer was traveling from New York to Los Angeles with her boyfriend, The Hangover‘s , when an electrical fire sparked in the cockpit, forcing the pilot to land the aircraft in Virginia.

Publicist Phil Lobel - who was a passenger on the plane - told ET Online the incident was a “harrowing experience,” as the fire had caused the windscreen to crack, which “obscured the pilot’s ability to conduct a visual landing.” Emergency crews met the plane on the runway, where they stabilized the situation before leading the passengers and crew to safety.

According to reports, the passengers - which also included Californication actress Pamela Adlon and Jersey Boys star Jarrod Spector - bonded and celebrated their safe landing once safely inside the airport. The group were rebooked onto flights to complete their journey this morning.

Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger

It appears that Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) and Joshua Jackson (Fringe) have taken a page out of Halle Berry’s book.

Although the two weren’t exactly color-coordinated (it wasn’t bad though), the pair did obviously shop from the same fedora rack before entering LAX yesterday.

What is that saying again—the couple that flies together must come off the airplane looking like they are together?
