CAPILLA DE GUADALUPE, Mexico, Nov. 25 (UPI) -- The Mexican distillers of a bottle of tequila encased in platinum said they hope it will set the record for the world's most expensive bottle of the liquor.

Hacienda La Cappila, based in Capilla de Guadalupe, said the bottle, which also has more than 4,000 diamonds totaling 328 carats, will tour European and Middle Eastern countries before being put up for auction, KABC-TV, Los Angeles, reported Thursday.

The distillery said it is aiming for the bottle to sell for more than $3.5 million to beat its own $225,000 Guinness World Record for the most expensive bottle of tequila.

Suspect arrested from flashing robbery

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 25 (UPI) -- Police in Missouri said a man who allegedly used a female accomplice's breasts to distract clerks during a robbery was arrested after returning to the scene.

Kansas City police said Laron Pearson, 21, was accompanied by a female who flashed her breasts to store clerks when he allegedly robbed a gas station Nov. 2, the Kansas City Star reported Thursday.

Police said they arrested Pearson Tuesday when the clerks called and identified him as the robber.

Pearson told police the weapon he held during the robbery was a BB gun and he only obtained $20 from the crime, court documents read. However, the clerks said the robber took $500.

Pearson was charged with first-degree robbery.

Robbery suspect used police phone

EUGENE, Ore., Nov. 25 (UPI) -- Police in Oregon said a man who stopped by a police station to call his parents was arrested and charged with a bank robbery from the previous day.

Investigators said Nathan Alan Bramlage, 23, stopped by the Eugene police station lobby Wednesday to call his parents and an officer recognized him from security footage of the bank robbery at a Wells Fargo branch a little more than 24 hours earlier, The Register-Guard newspaper reported Thursday.

Detectives followed Bramlage out of the facility and arrested him without incident a few blocks away, police said.

Bramlage was taken to the Lane County Jail and charged with second-degree robbery in addition to violating probation for an earlier delivering heroin charge.

"I just assume that he didn't believe that we'd recognize him," Detective Ralph Burks said.

Texas school has most twins, triplets

DALLAS, Nov. 25 (UPI) -- A Texas high school has set a Guinness World Record for the most multiple-birth students in a single class, with 10 twins and a set of triplets, officials say.

The 23 students are all in a junior class of 429 at Pearce High School in Richardson, The Dallas Morning News reported Wednesday.

"I only call them by last names, because I don't know the identical ones apart," senior assistant principal Chakosha Powell says.

The twins and triplets all say they're used to the confusion.

Jessica Saucier, who has a twin named Rebecca, said she gets called by the wrong name every day.

"I pretty much answer to both names," she said.

Last year, when the Pearce students were sophomores, they tied a Guinness record for most twins in one class, 10 sets.

When Guinness officials created a new category for most multiple-birth students in a class, it allowed the school to count its set of triplets -- Bradley, David and Luke Bailey -- alongside its 20 twins.

Other grades at Pearce aren't far behind: the freshman and sophomore classes each have seven sets of twins and the senior class has six.

"I have been going to school with at least three sets of twins since kindergarten," Dani Glazer, twin sister of Jackie, said. "It has been cool to watch the group get bigger."
