Cocaine and candy on the cop beat

Posted By on Wed, Jan 4, 2012 at 9:07 AM

A routine traffic stop in McAlmont by a Pulaski deputy yields suspects in thefts of, among others, dozens of candy bars and some jeans (loose fit, naturally).

Note to thieves: swallowing two grams of powder cocaine to hide evidence when a Pulaski deputy approaches might not be a good idea. And about those stolen candy bars: if you stole those new pairs of diabetic socks for therapeutic reasons, maybe the candy — 69 Hershey bars, 31 Almond Joys, 30 packs of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and a bag of soft peppermint puffs — wasn't such a good idea. Video game gear and two baby monitors also were seized.

  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
