A closet and safe under a 64-year-old grandmother’s bed in a senior complex in St. Petersburg, Florida are not the typical spots where police find a cache of illegal dope and guns. But that’s what a federal task force found when it dismantled a drug-trafficking organization and arrested eleven suspects, including nine from the Sunshine City. Now, recent court documents reveal how the organization used the Viridian, a senior housing complex as a stash house for the drugs and guns. Officers accused 42-year-old Ahmad Rashad Weston of leading the ring, saying he often worked with his brother 38-year-old Charleston Shellie Long and their mother 64-year-old Serena Weston from inside her apartment on the seventh floor. Investigators seized seven pounds of marijuana, four handguns, and numerous magazines and bullets from the senior complex. Two of the guns were reportedly stolen in earlier heists. When officers served the search warrant, Weston opened her door holding a small child. Ahmad Weston and Long are in the Pinellas County Jail awaiting a trial on federal charges. (

A group of instrument movers’ efforts to carry a pianist’s $194,000 piano out of a recording studio in Berlin ended in disaster. Angela Hewitt, one of the world’s leading classical pianists, revealed the calamity in a heartbreaking Facebook post: “I feel ready now to share a very sad piece of news. It happened ten days ago, and has been such a shock to me that I didn’t immediately want to share it with the world. The piano movers came into the control room (where I was finishing up with my producer) to say they had dropped my precious Fazioli concert grand piano.” She said the piano cannot be repaired.

It’s 2020 and there is simply no excuse to be caught with chapped lips. Even the pickiest person can find a lip balm they’ll like. And we’re pretty sure a large chunk of the population will go for the new Oreo-flavored lip balm now available on Amazon. The container is basically the size of an actual Oreo, so once you use up all the lip balm you can clean it out and can store a single Oreo with you wherever you go.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

According to the New Smyrna Beach, Florida Police Department, a man who felt like he was being ignored set his hospital bed on fire while another patient was in the room in an attempt to get a nurse’s attention. According to authorities, John King admitted to setting a plastic bag on fire on Saturday because he felt the AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach staff were ignoring his request to bring him his clothes and he believed that the fire would get their attention. King’s roommate in the hospital explained to officials that he had seen King light a small object on fire, but convinced him to put out the flame. However, when he returned to his bed behind a curtain, he saw King relight the fire and the roommate used the emergency button to notify staff. King gave authorities the silver and red Bic lighter he used to start the fire, records show. He was arrested on a felony charge of arson. According to the hospital’s administrator, the bed was damaged beyond repair and a new one has to be ordered to replace it, which costs $4,000. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by
An Irving-based demolition company apologized Thursday for tearing down the wrong home in Dallas. The home in the Vickery Place neighborhood was mistakenly demolished on Wednesday after JR’s Demolition pulled up in front of the wrong house. It was a mistake neighbors around the home known as the “pink house” realized right away. David Walkington lives a couple of doors over. “We walked over here and took a look at it, and it was just shocking,” Walkington said. JR’s Demolition had an active permit to tear down the home at 5336 Richard Avenue, but instead ended up several homes away on Wednesday. Owner Bobby Lindamood told WFAA his small business made a mistake, but thought they were initially at the correct location. (
