According to a statement from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a Canadian man was arrested on the Blue Water Bridge Sunday after officials found more than 280 pounds of cocaine in a berry shipment. Members of the CBP Port Huron Anti-Terrorism and Contraband Enforcement Team were doing routine outbound inspections on the bridge at the time of the seizure. The commercial truck shipping blackberries to Canada was selected for an enforcement exam. During the inspection and interview, four boxes containing plastic wrapped packages of suspected narcotics were found in the truck's tractor, according to the statement. The packages tested positive for the properties of cocaine in a field test. Dario Grujic of Guelph, Ontario was turned over to Homeland Security Investigations and made his initial appearance in federal court Monday. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Gregory Abair wrote in a complaint that Grujic's actions were consistent with that of a drug smuggler. (

The Grandiloquent Word of the Day


-Relating to Sisyphus, king of Corinth.
-Extremely difficult to the point of futility.

Noun form: sisyphism

From Sisyphus, Greek Sisyphos, who was the terrible king of Corinth. Foolishly, he offended Zeus and was consequently condemned to Hades where he was made to roll a stone uphill in perpetuity. The stone was so heavy that when Sisyphos reached the top of the hill, the stone would push him back to the bottom. Sisyphos is damned to perform this task over and over for all of eternity…

Used in a sentence:
“As a third grade substitute teacher, it is a sisyphean chore to keep these kids in their seats and on-task!”

According to Florida police, a man wearing an “inflatable dinosaur costume” allegedly battered his girlfriend during a dispute over attending a Halloween party. Cops allege that 19-year-old Patrick Gallway pushed the victim to the ground and proceeded to mount her and “hold her neck to the floor with his left hand.” The Saturday night confrontation at Gallway’s residence in Port St. Lucie came shortly after the 23-year-old woman arrived at the residence and was met by Gallway “wearing an inflatable dinosaur costume in preparation for a Halloween party.” The victim, who told police she was in a “strained relationship” with Gallway, said that she wanted the couple to go to a friend’s house to watch a movie. Gallway, she noted, “demanded that she attend the Halloween party with him.” Gallway was arrested around 2:45 a.m. Sunday when he returned to his residence from the Halloween party. As he pulled his car into the driveway, an officer “observed that an inflatable dinosaur costume was present in the front passenger seat.” Charged with battery, Gallway was booked into the county jail on the misdemeanor count.

Police in western Pennsylvania say a man faces forgery charges for allegedly trying to pay off court fines with counterfeit money. Westmoreland County detectives say 50-year-old James Floyd, of Monessen, handed the fake $100 bill to a county clerk of court’s office employee on Oct. 19th. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports the bill had a fake security ribbon and Chinese lettering on the front and back. The criminal complaint says Floyd was making a payment for a $25 fee and expected to receive change, and the clerk realized the money was faked. Floyd is charged with forgery and theft and didn’t have an attorney listed in online court records. The charges will be sent by summons. (
