A Louisiana woman was arrested on drug charges after police determined the $5,000 cash she used to post an inmate's bail had a “strong odor of marijuana.” Authorities began investigating 33-year-old Stormy Lynn Parfait on Friday, shortly after she showed up at the jail to pay the bond fee for an inmate being held there on drug charges. After catching a whiff of the cash, a detective searched her car while she was still at the jail and found nearly $40,000 more inside, along with about 100 Klonopin pills and a food stamp card that wasn't registered to Parfait. Investigators found hundreds of additional pills and cash as well as marijuana, cocaine, and paraphernalia during a search of Parfait's home later. Four unattended children there were turned over to a relative. Parfait was charged with multiple counts of possession with intent to distribute drugs and four counts of illegal use of a controlled drug in the presence of persons under 17.

It is illegal to sell a "bounceless" pickle to somebody in Connecticut. This law put Connecticut Librarians in quite the pickle. The law actually arose as a legend and the people demanded the truth. For hours, librarians in the state scanned past archives of laws within the state until one librarian eventually found the truth in the Hartford Courant. The law was in fact an ordinance that was created in 1945 to thwart pickle packers Moses Dexler and Sidney Sparer. These two men were selling inedible pickles, so laboratories conducted experiments and found that if it doesn't bounce, don't eat an ounce!

“I have to hunt the Pokémon,” apparently wasn't enough to convince Italian police that a 31-year-old man should be allowed to stay out on Italy's streets during a country-wide coronavirus lockdown. According to a report in the Italian newspaper Leggo, the man was with his daughter in San Fermo, a small town in northern Italy, when he encountered the Italian Carabinieri (Italy's main police force). When asked why he was flouting the country's current lockdown rules, he told the Carabinieri, “I have to hunt the Pokémon.” That was apparently not enough to excuse his actions, and he was charged. Italy has been on strict lockdown since March 10th, when Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte issued a nationwide order. Outside of Asia, Italy has seen the most severe impacts of the coronavirus.

A Florida man was arrested for stealing his grandmother's toilet paper. He visited her with friends and distracted her as they tossed the tp out the window. FAKE NEWS
