A Florida man accused of having cocaine in his hat told investigators he didn’t know the drugs were there. A 29-year-old Vero Beach man was arrested at 11:10 p.m. on January 8th on a charge of possession of controlled substance after the headgear hullabaloo. An Indian River County sheriff's deputy reported stopping a bicycle without lights. The 29-year-old bicyclist allowed deputies to search him. In the brim of his hat, investigators reported finding “a white powdery substance” in cellophane cigarette packaging. The bicyclist said he was unaware of the items in his hat. The powder in the bicyclist’s hat, the style of which was not identified, tested positive for cocaine. He said it wasn’t his, and he also said it “definitely” wasn’t cocaine. He was promptly arrested and taken to jail. (https://bit.ly/37bJ9By)

Local census takers must get a head start while the frozen ground allows easier access to the remote areas.

A Florida man pleaded guilty to his part in a trafficking scheme in which live water monitor lizards were stuffed into socks and concealed inside electronics to be smuggled from the Philippines to the United States. Court records show that 44-year-old Akbar Akram pleaded guilty in Tampa federal court Wednesday to one count of wildlife trafficking in violation of the Lacey Act and the the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species Treaty. Akram admitted to illegally importing more than 20 live water monitor lizards from the Philippines in 2016. He avoided customs authorities by placing the lizards in socks, which were sealed closed with tape and concealed inside electronic equipment and shipped under a false label. The equipment was transported through commercial carriers to Akram’s associate in Massachusetts. As part of his plea, Akram admitted that he knew the monitor lizards he received had been taken in violation of Philippine law and that the import violated U.S. law. He also admitted that upon receiving the monitor lizards, he sold some of them to customers in Colorado, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. (https://bit.ly/3a4ZTfH)
