Law enforcement officers who pulled a driver over for a traffic violation in Mississippi allegedly discovered about thirty-seven pounds of methamphetamine hidden inside a spare tire stashed in the vehicle. The Scott County Sheriff’s Office and the Flowood Police Department stopped a pickup truck along an interstate near Flowood early this month after spotting it driving in a “careless manner,” according to the agencies. An officer conducting the stop discovered a tire in the bed of the truck, and inside it, an assisting deputy found 37.5 pounds (17 kilograms) of methamphetamine worth an estimated street value of $350,000. The driver was charged with aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine. The suspect was not immediately identified and it was unclear whether they were being held in custody. (

They’re on thin ice! Two snowboarders accused of causing an avalanche in Colorado earlier this year could be on the hook for nearly $170,000. 26-year-old Evan Hannibal and 38-year-old Tyler DeWitt are both charged with reckless endangerment for allegedly starting the March 25th snowslide that buried hundreds of feet of roadway. Things began going downhill for the pair after they submitted GoPro footage to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. “Throughout the video there are several comments made about areas of concern,” Brian Metzger, a special operations technician with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a report. “The pair were clearly worried about avalanche conditions but proceeded down the path anyway.” Authorities brought charges against the snowboarders after reviewing the footage. Normally, the pair would face up to six months in the county jail and a $750 fine, but prosecutors want them to reimburse the state $168,000 for the damage caused. (

The boy, who was not hurt, was charged with theft of a vehicle, aggravated flight, three counts of damage to property and one count of aggravated assault. (

I read a headline, you guess if the story is something that really happened in the great state of FLORIDA or is it #FakeNews made up to trick you and amuse me

A Florida man brought along an AR-15 rifle, a 9mm handgun, and a cache of ammo for his Disney World family vacation due to safety fears over recent anti-racism protests in the state and across the country. The 43-year-old Palm Beach Gardens man checked into Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort in Orlando with his guns stuffed in a tennis bag on Labor Day weekend. The man had a concealed weapons permit and was not arrested “because no laws were broken.” Security at Disney safely stored the man’s guns for him until the end of his trip. Police were notified of the incident after the bellman handling the bag discovered the weapons when he looked inside upon realizing how heavy it was. Disney spokeswoman Andrea Finger told the Orlando Sentinel in a statement: “Our policy is clear that guns or weapons of any kind are not allowed at our resort regardless of whether someone has a permit.” (
