    Glad he went back for his Bible. Now he'll have plenty of time to read it.

    Woman posted Instagram pics with boyfriend, a wanted murder suspect: Kenner police

    A Kenner woman was arrested after she posted photos on Instagram of herself with her boyfriend - a fugitive wanted for second-degree murder.

    Darriyell Beasley, 21, was booked Friday (Aug. 17) with being an accessory after the fact to second-degree murder, said Lt. Michael Cunningham, spokesman for the Kenner Police Department.
    Detectives identified and interviewed Beasley one day after Connor's killing, according to authorities. She told police she was with Lavigne shortly after the shooting but did not know that he had been involved, Cunningham said.

    Kenner police did not arrest Beasley that day but warned her not to help her boyfriend evade authorities.

    However, in mid-July, police learned that Beasley had posted a photo of herself with Lavigne as an Instagram Story, Cunningham said. The feature allows Instagram users to post photographs and video that disappears after 24 hours.

    Detective brought Beasley in for questioning Thursday after a second photo with Lavigne appeared on her Instagram profile. She admitted meeting with Lavigne several times, police said. Beasley also said she gave him food and cash during the visits.

    Cops: College Park man stole safe he couldn’t crack from restaurant

    A College Park man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly stealing a safe from a Flowery Branch restaurant Thursday, leaving it in the woods for five days and returning to try to crack it, authorities said.
    Restaurant employees told authorities they found the safe before deputies arrived and retrieved money and other valuables from the safe, the release said. They left the safe where they found it.

    Five days later, Renfore was allegedly seen by employees on the property, attempting to get into the safe, the release said. They called 911 and deputies arrested him.

    Florida couple built drive-thru window at mobile home to sell drugs: cops
    By Kaitlyn Schallhorn

    A Florida couple was arrested last week after they were caught allegedly selling drugs out of a drive-thru window they constructed out of the side of their mobile home.

    William Parrish Jr. and McKenzee Dobbs of Ocala, Florida, were arrested on August 23 after investigators raided their mobile home following reports of four drug overdoses in the area, WFTV reported.



    Florida couple allegedly sold drugs from their mobile home kitchen window, police say

    According to an Ocala Police Department report of the incident, officers found fentanyl prepackaged in foil as well as plastic bags and a digital scale in the kitchen. The report noted that police believe the couple sold drugs from their kitchen window.

    Orlando TV station WFTV reported that the couple used the window as a makeshift drive-thru for their customers. According to WFTV, the duo used signs to signal when their mobile home was open for sales and where to drive.

    Florida man jumps in canal of toxic blue-green algae fleeing a traffic stop, say police


    The cyanobacteria, which brings with it a top green sheen on the surface, is affecting fresh waterways and is a serious issue for the many canals of Cape Coral.

    Ask Abraham Duarte, an Ocala resident who allegedly jumped into a Cape Coral canal Friday night to avoid arrest, but was overcome by the algae that has beset Southwest Florida waterways for the majority of the summer.


    He swam back to shore and was pulled out by police officers.

    A citizen allowed officers to hose down Duarte and remove the algae covering his body.

    He was drunk, high and naked, cops say. Then he decided to bake cookies.

    September 07, 2018 03:27 PM

    On the evening of Aug. 27, two officers from Niceville Police Department went to assist firefighters at a home in Niceville, in Okaloosa County.
    A man, later identified as James Gregory Cunningham, answered the door, said he was sorry and then closed it. The individual was naked, said the report, and in “a smoke filled house with items on fire inside it,” such as towels.
    He came back to the door. For his safety, the officers detained Cunningham and brought him some pants.

    Once safely out of the house, Cunningham admitted that he had consumed two liters of vodka and smoked marijuana.

    The Niceville Fire Department determined that Cunningham was baking cookies on his George Foreman grill and “left them unattended.” Both the cookies and the grill subsequently caught fire. The man then put towels on the grill to put the fire out, unsuccessfully.


    Wow. I've never thought of baking cookies on my George Foreman grill. But, then, I don't cook while drunk, high and naked.:wag:

    What do you do when you're drunk high and naked? :dunno:

    :giggle: I'm never drunk or high, and rarely naked (only in my own home).

    Wait! I know what you're thinking. :oops:
    I should've qualified that: only in the privacy of my own home -- when no one else is around, doors and curtains shut, and very briefly (e.g., to get a towel I forgot when I started my shower). I'd never answer the door like that.
