The revolting incident Tuesday morning resulted in the arrest of Terri Patterson, 23, and Nicholas Schelb, 29, for felony child neglect. Schelb was also charged with two battery counts.

When cops arrived at the duo’s Evansville residence, Patterson was locked outside and screaming and banging on the home’s rear door.According to a probable cause affidavit, Patterson’s feet were bleeding and she had “large clumps” of feces “in her hair as well as her face and clothing.”

During subsequent questioning, officers determined that during an argument over laundry, Schelb picked up dog waste from the floor and rubbed it on Patterson. He later threw more feces at her. In addition to striking the woman, the waste hit the couple’s younger child–who was in a baby seat–in the face and body.

A cop noted that the floor was littered with a broken coffee table, shattered glass, and animal feces. The couple’s older child, a one-year-old boy, had feces on the tops and bottoms of his feet and between his toes.

Schelb reportedly told an officer that he and Patterson had been “awake all night after smoking meth.” The children were removed by child welfare workers due to the home’s condition “as well as both Schelb and Patterson testing positive for using meth.”

Patterson and Schelb are both locked up in the Vanderburgh County jail.

‘Start with half a pill’ – Council attacked for giving children as young as 13 advice on taking drugs

0

A council has come under fire for giving children advice on how to pop pills, snort cocaine and smoke cannabis.

Edinburgh Council has been slatted after it produced a booklet aimed at giving pupils as young as 13 advice on drugs, drinking and sex.

MAIN-Council-UnderfireThe booklet, called Snapfacts and created with the city’s Drug and Alcohol project, gives readers shocking tips on taking drugs including telling people to “wash your nose after each session” when taking cocaine and to “start with half a pill” when taking MDMA.

Creators have argued that the “non-judgemental” and “accurate” information in the book will help young people make informed choices and keep them safe.

But others have been left stunned by the content, which includes street names for drugs and other tips – such as “take short puffs if inhaling” when discussing cannabis.

Agnes Morrison of the Maxie Richards Foundation, an anti-drugs charity which campaigns for abstinence based treatment of drug abuse and runs a rehab centre for addicts, said: “I don’t know why anybody would put out a leaflet telling teenagers the safe way of taking drugs.

“There is no safe way to take drugs. Drugs destroy people so why would you want to put together a leaflet?

“I’ve never come across anything like this. I know they are putting them in schools and that there is other educational information in there.

“But a lot of kids who do not know anything about drugs might read it and get the impression that there is a safe way to take drugs.

There’s opiates in them thar buns

Dozens of buns have been confiscated from a Krakow bakery chain after high strength opiates were detected in the firm’s products.

UntitledPolice pounced after a tip-off from doctors at the Jagiellonian University’s hospital.

“A female patient checked in this morning with strange symptoms,” revealed Professor Andrzej Kulig, director of the hospital, in an interview with the Gazeta Wyborcza daily.

“She was behaving as if she had taken drugs.”

“The woman swore that she had not taken anything and that all she had done was eat a poppyseed bun that morning.”

The hospital sent staff members to buy buns from the chain in question, and it transpired that the company had been using a type of poppyseed that is illegal in the EU for catering purposes.

The buns were duly confiscated.

Police have not disclosed the name of the bakery chain, as it remains unclear whether the owners knew they had purchased a forbidden product.

Woman records herself doing drugs, judge orders her held

A Framingham woman recorded herself doing heroin and cocaine while making fun of her probation officer, then posted it online, authorities said on Friday.

videoAfter viewing the video on Friday, Framingham District Court Judge Douglas Stoddart ordered Allison Voner, 23, held on $5,000 bail on one case, revoked her probation on another case and ordered her held on a warrant for another court.

“I just saw the most incriminating video I’ve ever seen in my 36 years” in the legal profession, Stoddart said.

The video was not shown in open court.

On Thursday, probation officer Elisa Currie sought a warrant for Voner’s arrest. She told Judge Cesar Archilla that the Natick Police had obtained a video that showed Voner driving a car, which she is not allowed to do, while smoking or inhaling both heroin and cocaine, and going on a tirade against a probation officer. The video appeared to be taken outside of a courthouse.

Archilla issued the warrant and Framingham Police arrested Voner on Thursday at 2:55 p.m.

After viewing the video in his chambers with prosecutor Ben Franklin, Currie and Voner’s lawyer, John Daly Jr., Stoddart ordered Voner held on $5,000 on on open possession of herion case, without hearing Daly’s argument to free his client.

Stoddart also held her without bail for violating her probation on a credit card fraud case from Natick last year, and held her on a Brookline District Court warrant on an unspecified charge.

After the judge announced his decision, Daly tried to convince Stoddart to reconsider.

“She frequently Facebooks out entertaining videos,” said Daly. “It was meant as an entertaining video only. It was comedy.”

Stoddart said, “She achieved her goal. It was the most entertaining video I’ve seen. It was entertaining and it was tragic.”

After the judge repeated his orders, Voner asked him to send her to a drug rehabilitation facility. After her mother filed a formal request, Stoddart denied it.

“I’m a little suspect on the timing of her (Voner’s) request,” said Stoddart. “She appears to be very intelligent, very manipulative.”

Wannabe Playboy Model In Ecstasy Trafficking Bust

A wannabe Playboy model and a male associate were arrested by federal agents after flying into a California airport from Las Vegas in a private plane loaded with a massive cache of Ecstasy pills and powder, according to court records.

Acting on information that the plane may have been involved with the smuggling of drugs or currency, investigators questioned the duo upon landing last Thursday at John Wayne Airport in Orange County.

kristaboseleyfb1 (1)Krista Boseley, 30, and pilot Gilles Lapointe, 61, were both carrying large sums of cash that they claimed to have won the prior evening at the Bellagio casino. The pair, both of whom are Canadian citizens, subsequently had their bags searched after a drug detection dog alerted to the presence of narcotics.

As detailed in a U.S. District Court complaint, agents found about 30,000 Ecstasy pills in Lapointe’s luggage, and another 28,000 pills inside the plane. The aircraft (seen below) also contained nearly 90 pounds of powdered Ecstasy and a “GPS Tracker Detector” that, investigators allege, is used by drug smugglers “to determine whether law enforcement has placed a tracking device on their vehicles or planes.”

Boseley, pictured above, and Lapointe were arrested after agents found the Ecstasy stash. Boseley denied knowledge of the drugs being trafficked or “anything illegal.” Lapointe, however, appears to have made incriminating statements to agents, though they are not detailed in the felony complaint charging the duo with conspiracy to distribute narcotics.

kristaboseleyfrontFollowing Boseley’s arrest, investigators learned that she had been stopped last year by Los Angeles Police Department officers who found her with more than $40,000 in cash. “Boseley stated at that time that the money belonged to someone else.” She was also found in possession of a receipt showing that Lapointe’s plane had been refueled at the Santa Barbara airport.

Boseley, who has worked as a real estate agent in Vancouver, is a tattoo enthusiast who once posedfor a series of naked photos during a Playboy open call. Her Facebook page is filled with assorted affirmations and musings, like “Don’t judge someone because they sin differently than you.” In her last update, on October 3, Boseley reposted a graphic announcing, “Yes, I’m crazy. No, you can’t have some.”

A federal magistrate has ordered Lapointe locked up in advance of an October 24 preliminary hearing. Boseley’s custody status is not detailed in court records, nor is she listed among inmates being held by the federal Bureau of Prisons or the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Halloween Candy May Contain Marijuana, Denver Police Warn

0

With marijuana now legal in Colorado and cannabis candy a big part of the scene,Denver police are issuing an unusual warning ahead of Halloween. In short, they want people to know that not all candy is for kids.

Halloween-Candy“With edibles gaining in popularity we thought it was important to alert the community to the possibility that it’s easy to mistake what looks like regular candy with a marijuana edible,” Denver police spokesman Lt. Matt Murray told Fox31 Denver.

The department recruited Patrick Johnson, owner of Urban Dispensary, to create a video (above) showing how pot candies can resemble traditional candies. Johnson said some manufacturers of “knocked-off candy” buy sweets in bulk and then spray them with hash oil. Once the oil dries, there’s no way to tell the difference.

“The problem is that some of these products look so similar to candy that’s been on the market, that we’ve eaten as children, that there’s really no way for a child or a parent or anybody, even an expert in the field, to tell you whether or not a product is infused,” Johnson said in the video.

He said that if kids bring home candy that don’t look like something from a recognizable brand, toss it.

However, some believe this may be unnecessary fear-mongering.

“This is just another way for those who most benefit from marijuana prohibition to try to convince the public that prohibition protects children,” wrote the Ladybud blog. “The real message here is that the average citizen should be wary of cannabis users; they might want to drug your kids and get them ‘hooked’ too.”

Jacob Sullum, a contributor to the Forbes website, writes that the warning seems to fit the pattern of other, often unconfirmed, Halloween candy scares.

He notes that a database search turns up no evidence of marijuana candy being passed off as Halloween candy since 1996, the year California legalized medical marijuana use, but several examples of warnings that it might happen.

“There is a cost to such bogeyman stories, and it goes beyond needlessly discarded candy,” Sullum writes. “These rumors portray the world as a darker, more dangerous place than it really is, which is probably not conducive to a happy childhood or a successful adulthood.”
