A welcome mat at the front door of a Florida home read “come back with a warrant” and that’s just what deputies did before finding drugs and drug paraphernalia inside. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the home in Palm Coast was part of an investigation into illegal drugs. After seeing the doormat, authorities say the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office got the warrant. Deputies found fentanyl and drug paraphernalia inside during a search late last week. Investigators say there were four people inside but no arrests were made immediately. The Florida Department of Children and Families was contacted regarding a child at the home.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by InsuranceChicken.com
A woman on reddit recently asked for advice on whether or not she should change her daughter’s name because it sounds like “lasagna.” Her daughter’s full name is Elizabeth Anya Jane, but they call her Liz Anya — and her family has been making fun of her for her name choice.
America's first bank robber deposited the money back into the same bank. At the Bank of Philadelphia on August 1, 1798, a sum of $162,821 was stolen from the vault. There was no sign of forced entry so it was thought to be an inside job. Patrick Lyon was imprisoned as the prime suspect, as he had been the carpenter that worked on the vault doors. But then, they realized a man named Isaac Davis had been depositing large sums of money into the Bank of Philadelphia. It turned out, he was one of the robbers involved. In 1799, Lyon was freed, and Davis only ended up repaying the money without serving a day in jail.
A NEWS HEADLINE... FROM SOMEWHERE IN THIS WORLD!
In Germany a man offered assistance to a guy whose car had broken down on the side of the highway. The man offered to attach a tow rope to the other guy’s car to get him to a service station. Sounds like a pretty nice offer. The German guy then proceeded to zip down the highway at up to 100 miles per hour. The guy being towed was trapped in his towed car, and all he could do is flash his lights and honk his horn. Eventually he caught the attention of other drivers, who called police, who forced the tow guy to slow down.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by InsuranceChicken.com
An Idaho man who turned his quarantine fatigue into the need for speed was arrested after driving on a closed Florida beach during the coronavirus lockdown, authorities said last Saturday. 25-year-old John McGarry led police on a 35-mph chase across the empty beach at Sand Key, a vacation spot that’s part of Clearwater Beach, after bystanders spotted him taking a spin on the sand. Officers eventually arrested McGarry when he tried to flee the beach through a hotel parking lot. Clearwater Beach and other Pinellas County beaches have remained closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Even when open, it is illegal to drive on the beaches. But that didn’t deter McGarry from taking the apparent joyride. Embracing his inner "Florida man," the Idaho native told officers he did it because he was “bored.” McGarry was booked in the Pinellas County Jail and charged with reckless driving, resisting arrest without violence, and driving with a suspended license.
