TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Jayson Curtiss, 38, who was arrested for marijuana possession in Florida after attempting to change his story three different times.
Police pulled over Curtiss’ SUV for speeding, only to notice a giant plastic bag on the front seat that smelled quite fragrant.
He initially told them it was an aromatherapy bag he used for medical purposes.
When police demanded proof, he then told them that it was actually just his yard clippings.
He finally relented and admitted it was a pound of marijuana, but claimed he was licensed to sell it.
He was arrested on multiple narcotics charges and is being held in lieu of $65,000 bail.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Parim Vrzivoli, 35, who was arrested for robbing a Connecticut check cashing store after he left his pay stub on the counter.
Police say Vrzivoli brandished a gun at the Mega Express store on Friday morning and got $4,100 from the cashier.
A witness saw him drop a paper on the counter as he turned and fled.
When police arrived, they tracked the address on the pay stub and arrested him a short while later.
He’s charged with robbery, assault, and firearms charges.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Benny Wercberger, 30, who was arrested for reckless driving in Vermont just five miles after he was ticketed for speeding.
Police initially stopped Wercberger on Route 91 for driving 97 in a 65.
He was ticketed and let go, only to get caught 5 miles later by a different trooper for doing 90 in a 55.
This time around he was arrested for negligent operation of a vehicle.
