A Florida man and his furry “accomplice” were taken into custody by authorities who said the man shoplifted from a store. Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said Logan Wilson was arrested last Wednesday and charged with petit theft and possession of meth. Wilson admitted to stealing $259 worth of items from Bass Pro Shops. He was arrested during a traffic stop after he was seen leaving the store. Deputies also took Wilson’s four-legged friend into custody. A sheriff’s office Facebook post showing an officer holding a small puppy said deputies took care of the “cutest accomplice” before handing him over to Hillsborough County Animal Services. Animal services will care for the dog until his owner is released from jail. Animal services has listed the puppy as “pre-adopted.” Deputies said that if the owner doesn’t claim the dog, it will go up for adoption. (https://bit.ly/37hHVUN)

Dinosaurs lived on every continent. Back in their day, dinosaurs lived on every continent on Earth, including Antarctica. The reason we only find their bones in certain places, though, is that weather and soil conditions in those places were just right for the bones to be fossilized. Scientists also speculate that there may be many smaller-sized dinosaurs that we know nothing about because their bones were too small to fossilize well.

Smith-DeJoseph was a volunteer at St. Paul's Baptist Church in Florence Township. She oversaw the church's finances. From 2014 through March 2019, Smith-DeJoseph allegedly embezzled over $561,000 from the church, opening electronic bank accounts for the church and using the money. Police said she used the money to pay car loans, rent, credit card expenses, satellite television, cell phone bills and even for her wedding.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by SingleStudentLoan.com
A Washington state driver is facing a hefty fine after being caught using a highway carpool lane with a giant stuffed dinosaur as their only passenger. Trooper Rick Johnson of the Washington State Patrol said a driver was pulled over Wednesday for speeding in the high-occupancy vehicle lanes of Interstate 5 northbound. The trooper conducting the traffic stop quickly discovered the driver's only passenger was a big green stuffed dinosaur toy. “Even if you have a favorite stuffed animal it doesn't count as a passenger for the HOV,” Johnson wrote. The driver could be facing a hefty fine thanks to a law that took effect last summer that adds a $200 fine to the $186 base fine for a HOV violation if a driver is caught “using a dummy, doll, or other human facsimile to make it appear that an additional person is in the vehicle.” (https://bit.ly/38sktpo)
