Missing Toaster Ruins Lives
O.k., it's not really clear that a toaster was to blame in the arrest of two people in Virginia on charges of marijuana possession with intent to distribute, however, it was a small appliance of some sort. Apparently, a woman called police to report a small kitchen appliance missing yesterday. When deputies arrived, they detected the smell of marijuana coming from the basement. They went downstairs to investigate, and found two men, some pot, paraphernalia, cash, and a gun. Both men were charged in connection with the find.
It's not clear if the men in the basement are related to the woman who reported the missing kitchen appliance, nor why she called the police when the men were downstairs smoking. The kitchen appliance has not yet been found.
