Police said a Tennessee man pulled over during a traffic stop was found sitting on some funny money. 29-year-old Robert Mitchell was stopped by police on Monday in Nashville, where he was allegedly speeding and initially refused to slow down. After surrendering to police, Mitchell then refused to get out of his car and tried to put the vehicle into drive. Police said a subsequent search of Mitchell’s car revealed a small amount of marijuana and a Viagra pill. A police report also noted that officers found five fake $100 bills “concealed between his butt cheeks.” He was taken into custody and held on $7,500 bond in connection with several charges, including unlawful possession of a controlled substance, drug possession without a prescription, criminal simulation, and driving with a revoked license.

New York Cops say that a pair of heads-up police officers caught a man suspected in in a string of convenience store stickups — after he stopped to gas up his car a half-mile away from his most recent target. Police were looking for a man in a white hoodie driving a dark Cadillac sedan after someone stuck up the 7-Eleven on Kings Highway by Coney Island Ave. in Sheepshead Bay early Wednesday morning. Not long after, someone with a similar description hit two more stores, including another 7-Eleven on Nostrand Ave. and Ave. Y. At 6:00 a.m., officers Daniel Kim and Daniel Gillen spotted 37-year-old Benjamin Uzilou wearing a white hoodie gassing up his Cadillac on Ocean Ave. and Ave. Z — a half-mile away from the latest heist. They took Uzilou into custody, finding a gun and marijuana in his possession. The clerk at the Nostrand Ave. store then identified him as the robber. Police are still working to link him to the other robberies, including eight more heists since Sept. 15th. (https://goo.gl/W74Uqf)

MOMENT OF DUH:
A Georgia man is accused of stealing 150 pounds of waffle mix from a former employer and flipping it to a syrupy stream of buyers. Lieutenant Odilia Bergh, a Peachtree City police spokeswoman, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Thursday that 33-year-old Brandon Lee Nelson is charged with burglary. Police say Nelson drove to his former employer’s storage facility in August and stole five boxes of Golden Malted waffle batter. Bergh says Nelson then covertly sold it to buyers who contacted him about the stolen dough. Bergh says Nelson later was identified on surveillance video of the theft and arrested this month. He has since posted bail and been released.
