Authorities say a 20-year-old man is accused of trying to set up a meth lab in a restroom at a park in New Smyrna Beach.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports a construction worker called 911 on Tuesday to report smoke that smelled of chemicals and acid coming from the men's bathroom at Detwiler Park.
Police and a hazardous materials team went to the park to investigate. Inside the bathroom, they found remnants of a one-pot meth lab. The restroom wasn't seriously damaged.
The worker told police he saw a man running from the area with a bag in his hand.
Evidence led investigators to Justin Hill. He's also a suspect in a home burglary.
He was released from jail and records don't say whether he has an attorney.Wed, 26 Nov 2014 08:28:25 -0500
“Squatchy,” as he’s known, had been missing for several days. The statue's owner, Ralph Spence, didn’t panic, but he wanted his family’s favorite concrete friend back.
"My two youngest boys bought it," Spence told Fox19.
"It started out like a joke and, actually, my wife was kind of upset about it at first, but after we had it awhile we'd dress it up for the holidays and stuff," he continued.
It wasn’t just the Spence family who were upset. Ralph said neighbors were equally concerned because they too enjoyed dressing the concrete creature up in seasonal attire.
Spence was relieved when he got a call saying Squatchy “was chilling out in an open field” nearby.
Police and the family found the statue wearing “a nice sweater and Cincinnati Reds ball cap.”
Spence figured it took a bunch of people to carry off the piece, but an attached note seemed to indicate otherwise.
"Squatchy only required two of our members for transit. Sincerely, The Body Building Bandits. P.S. Happy Holidays," it read.
Relieved the “kidnapping” ended well, Delhi Township police released a statement: "Sasquatch has been reunited with his owner, and it feels so good.”
The statement went on to say Squatchy “appears to be in good health.”
A Christmas miracle, or just a good old prank? Uou decide.
In other countries, you may be asked to give a push to a car stuck in the mud. In Russia, passengers in the Arctic came out of an airliner to the bitter cold to help it move to the runway.
A Russian-made Tu-134 with 74 oil workers and seven crew members onboard was due to fly from the town of Ingarka on Tuesday to Krasnoyarsk 800 miles (nearly 1,300 kilometers) to the south when the plane's chassis breaks literally got frozen to the ground. It was -52 C (-61 F) outside and the passengers seemed desperate to get home.
Eager to help, several dozen men were seen in an amateur video pushing the plane by leaning on both wings.
Russian authorities, however, weren't amused by the incident, and prosecutors launched an investigation into a possible breach of safety regulations.
"It would be funny if it didn't pose a horrendous threat. People could have damaged the aircraft skin and the flaps," Oksana Gorbunova, senior adviser to the West Siberian transportation prosecutor, told the Tass news agency.
Gorbunova said the passengers were asked to leave the plane when it got stuck. When a tractor began towing the airliner, some of the passengers left a bus and tried to help move it.
"The plane was towed, of course, because it would be physically impossible for people (to move it)," Gorbunova said.Wed, 26 Nov 2014 07:57:09 -0500 News Source: MedleyStory More Local News Stories
