Man holds up Australian family, steals snakes worth C$90,000

ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) - A man held up a woman and two children at gunpoint before fleeing with a dozen snakes worth the equivalent of C$90,000, police said Thursday.

The man demanded the 12 green tree snakes, which are not venomous, when he approached the door of the woman's home near the South Australian state capital Adelaide on Wednesday, state police said Thursday.

He then stuffed the snakes - measuring up to 80 centimetres long - into a duffel bag and bound the woman's ankles and the hands of two boys before fleeing the scene.

The snakes are valued at about C$7,500 each, police said.

Police were investigating the alleged theft but no suspect had been arrested Thursday. The women and children were not identified.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
