Charlotte County, on Florida’s west coast, is sleepy, to say the least—but this marks the second week in a row it’s popped up on #WTFlorida. And it’s where authorities just received a 911 crime call featuring a Floridian twist: a drug dealer complaining that she had been robbed for her weed stash.
The kicker? The kid who stole her weed got caught—and so far, she’s charge-free. Floridian justice! Check out the whole story here via WZVN.
Next up, let’s go to Lake County, in central Florida, which is not *too* far from Orlando. That’s where residents of one neighborhood have been trying to crack the case of someone egging their cars. Get it, crack? Way more puns abound in this epic story from WESH, which offers all the full details.
(Spoiler: It was a 58-year-old man upset about how people were parking in his neighborhood. Never mess with angry senior vigilante code enforcers.)
Finally we’re going to go back to St. Petersburg in the best area of the state for #WTFlorida … Tampa Bay! That’s where a young couple woke up to find a man trying to burglarize their home.
This is Florida, so the husband held him at gunpoint while the wife called the cops and authorities could arrive. But this is also Florida, so the would-be criminal tried a novel approach to get out of his crime—by offering to mow the couple’s lawn if they set him free. Smart, no? Check out WTSP for the full story.
