Minutes after being released from jail, a Florida man was arrested in the parking lot for breaking into cars



Quote
Casey Michael Lewis was a free man for about 15 minutes, not even leaving the grounds of the jail where he'd been locked up before being arrested again.

The 37-year-old had just been released Thursday from the St. Lucie County Detention Facility in Fort Pierce, Florida, where he'd been held on grand theft charges, according to an arrest affidavit.

The affidavit says after he was released, Lewis then began walking around the jail's parking lot "acting suspicious and checking vehicle doors."
Quote
The arresting officer said in the affidavit that when Lewis was approached, questioned and finally arrested he gave the officer a brown paper bag with items from a vehicle. The items included an iPhone 7, four packs of cigarettes, a lighter, one Visa bank debit card, a Florida driver's license and $547 in cash.

Lewis was arrested on charges of burglary, grand larceny and possession of stolen property and taken back inside the jail.

    I like that one.

    I read a similar story a while back about a Flemish driver from whom the police took his licence for a short time (unfortunately, you have to do much worse here to lose it for longer). When he came to collect his licence after the allotted period, he arrived at the police station ... yep, at the wheel of a car. :D

    Florida man accused of shoplifting after buying $8m island



    Quote
    Andrew Lippi is accused of stealing about $300 (£230) worth of goods from a Kmart department store, the Key West Police Department reported.

    Mr Lippi had made headlines days earlier by purchasing Thompson Island off Key West for $8m (£6.13m).
    Quote
    Police said Mr Lippi also purchased a $150 coffee machine, came back with the box and was given a full refund. However, Kmart employees then noticed the returned box contained just a basketball, according to police.
     :shh

    "I asked Lippi about the Keurig coffee machine being replaced by a basketball, and he stated the clerk should have realised there was no coffee machine by the weight of the box," the arresting officer noted in the report.

    Florida man killed by large flightless bird he owned

    Quote
    A 75-year-old man has been killed in Florida after he was attacked by a large flightless bird he owned.

    Alachua County Sheriff Department told the BBC they were called to the man's property on Friday and found the man badly wounded by a cassowary.

    The man, named Marvin Hajos, was taken to hospital by paramedics where he died from his injuries.
    Police are investigating but say initial information suggests this was a "tragic accident".

    "My understanding is that the gentleman was in the vicinity of the bird and at some point fell. When he fell, he was attacked," Deputy Chief Jeff Taylor told the Gainesville Sun newspaper.

    Quote
    Mr Hajos had kept exotic animals, including llamas, for decades, reports from local newspapers say.

    Similar in appearance to emus, cassowary are among the largest and heaviest bird species in the world - and can weigh more than 100lb (45kg).

    The birds can run up to 30 mph (50km/h) and have a five-inch claw on each foot.

    Meth smoking Florida man attacks mattress in jealous rage



    Quote
    FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — An apparently hallucinating Florida man used a bedpost to attack a mattress where he thought a man was hiding.

    In a Facebook post , The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s office quotes the girlfriend of 37-year-old Felipe Oquendo as saying that he began acting erratically early Friday. The girlfriend told deputies Oquendo thought she was cheating on him with a man he thought he saw in the mattress at their Fort Walton Beach home.

    She said Oquendo hit the mattress with a bed post, ripped it apart and locked the bedroom door. She was able to escape and call police.

    The sheriff’s office says Oquendo later admitted to having smoked meth.

    Jail records don’t list a lawyer for him.

    (CNN) — A massive, absolutely gargantuan gator tried to cross a Florida highway earlier this month but met a tragic end -- it was struck by a semi-truck and had to be put down.


    Not sure why she's smiling. :slow

    Quote
    Tallahassee alligator trapper Broderick Vaughan said he received a call about a stunned alligator walking in circles on the highway near the state's capital.

    He's caught the creatures for over a decade, so he expected a standard removal job.

    But no.

    The 12-foot, 463-pound goliath he found was one of the largest he'd ever encountered, he told CNN. And it was badly injured. The alligator had collided with a semi-truck, which injured its snout and crushed its head on one side.

    Vaughan caught his snare pole around the animal's neck, taped its mouth shut and wrestled it into the back of his truck and home to his facility.

    It was clear the gator was seriously injured, so he euthanized it the same day.

    "There was no reason to keep him alive and let him suffer," he said.

    Florida Highway Patrol said the alligator crept onto the road around midnight June 3. The exit was closed for hours until the gator was safely removed.

    Under Florida wildlife regulation, any gator over four feet in length is considered a nuisance and potential threat to people and property, so it can't be relocated.

    If they aren't able to find new homes in exhibits or farms, they must be euthanized and sent to processing facilities so their meat can be sold to restaurants or tanned and used for leather products.

    The state's alligator population is healthy at about 1.3 million, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

    No word on the condition of the truck.  :-x

    Seeing how summer is typically the craziest time of year, I can't believe this thread has been so quiet!
