Mug Shot of the Week


Charge: Warrant for Failure To Appear, for Failure to Attach Animal License
Pasco County

Usually I pick a mug shot because I find the picture funny (or scary), but I picked this one not for the picture but the charge. Who gets arrested over dog tags, seriously? How do you let that situation escalate to the point that a bench warrant is issued for your arrest?

Recycle Your Sex Toys

A Wesley Chapel sex toy shop owner recently launched a new business, recycling:

The rubber and plastics will be transformed into park benches, playground mulch and decorative yard fixtures, Kowalsky said. [...]

Several recycling and environmental organizations, including the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, did not want to comment on Kowalsky's effort because of the nature of the products. Off the record, the groups' reps said they hadn't heard of any other sex toy recycling programs in the country. [...]

"This can't be serious," said Jennifer Seney, recycling coordinator for Pasco County. "It's certainly not recyclable material in my book."

Mug Shot of the Week


Charge: Burglary with Assault or Battery
Pasco County

I chose this one because Cathy’s friendly smiling face seems a bit incongruous with the crime. I would have guessed Running a Bake Sale without a Food Vendor’s License, or somesuch...

Actually, the photo almost looks like it could have come off a Real Estate Agent’s flyer.... Cathy W! #1 agent on the West Side!

Though, come to think of it with the market the way it is, she could be a realtor that turned to a life of crime...
