first_imgAdditionally, Hialeah Police detectives arrested and questioned Morales and Pupo on Tuesday.They asked Morales why he decided to fire his weapon, and obtained a surveillance video of the shooting that corroborated his statement.Detectives reported Morales “charged the firearm while in pursuit” of the alleged thief and “discharged one round into the vehicle as it fled eastbound on West 17th Street.”They reported that Pupo knew about the plan to steal seafood from the market, and was supposed to earn about $30 after selling it.Her criminal record in Miami-Dade County, which goes back to 2006, includes burglaries, robberies, and theft cases.Pupo admitted to waiting in the car with the girls and “placing the victims in danger during the commission of a crime,” police added.Detectives identified the man accused of stealing the lobster as Steadman Amaya.

Javed Miandad slams PCB for ‘exhausting’ players with hectic training schedule

first_imgFormer captain Javed Miandad on Tuesday lashed out at Pakistan Cricket Board for exhausting the national team players by making them attend camps before the tour to England.”The number of days these players are attending these camps they will be tired out even before the tour begins,” Miandad said.’HOLDING CAMPS NOT THE ANSWER’Miandad said touring England was always a difficult task even when Pakistan had strong outfits in the past.”Playing in England poses a totally different challenge and definitely our team faces a stiff challenge ahead of them in Tests and ODIs. But what is regrettable is the preparations are not right just holding camps is not the answer.”He also questioned the absence of head coach Mickey Arthur from the boot camp and then the skills camp.”If what we are reading is true that the new coach has sent his plans to the team for implementation in the camps in his absence, then I am sorry I don’t think theBoard is taking the coming tour seriously,” said the former captain.’AXING UMAR, SHEHZAD A SHAM’Miandad described the exclusion of young batsmen Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal on disciplinary grounds from the tour as a sham.”The point is what will Pakistan cricket achieve by just discarding these players. If they have any problems it is the job of the Board and team management to handle these things.They are good players and Pakistan cricket can use their skills,” Miandad said.He also said the Board and selectors should be clear about the reasons for dropping the two players.advertisement”Just saying on disciplinary grounds is not acceptable tell us what they have done,” he added.MIANDAD QUESTIONS INZAMAMMiandad, who appeared in 124 Tests, also questioned chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq for roping in other members, who have played little international cricket, in his committee.”I don’t understand the logic behind him picking people whose experience of international cricket is limited. Why did he not pick like-minded and experienced players of his time to work with him. Is this choice of his selectors just to make it a one man selection committee?” he asked.Inzamam picked Wajahatullah Wasti and Tauseef Ahmed with a combined experience of 34 Tests and 70 ODIs, and seam-bowling all-rounder Wasim Haider, who played three ODIs in 1992 World Cup.last_img read more
