Robber pays for drugs
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Police in northern Idaho arrested a robber accused of demanding a controlled drug from a pharmacy, then throwing cash on the counter before fleeing. Kootenai County Sheriff Lt. Stu Miller said a 39-year-old man was arrested Tuesday.

Police questioned the man at his Twin Lakes home Tuesday after getting a tip from a church pastor. He was being held in the county jail and expected to appear in 1st District Court Wednesday.

Investigators said a man went to the prescription counter at a Hayden-area Walgreens Monday night and asked the pharmacist for a drug. When told he needed a prescription, police said the man told the pharmacist he was robbing her.

After the clerk handed over the drug, police said the robber tossed some money on the counter and walked out.

Surprise pregnancy
HARRODSBURG, Ky. (AP) - A 32-year-old Kentucky woman who said she didn't know that she was pregnant delivered her newborn son on the floor of her laundry room by herself and even cut the umbilical cord. Kelly Bottom told The Advocate-Messenger that she also picked up her other son from school and stopped in at the baby's grandmother's house to show her the infant before going to the hospital Thursday.

The newspaper reported the mother and baby were discharged from the hospital Monday after checking in Thursday night.

Bottom said the baby, named Brian Keith Sims, weighed 6 pounds, 15 ounces at birth.
