Greetings fellow Bizarros:
Police in Germany announced they seized about 5,000 ecstasy tablets modeled after the head of U.S. President Donald Trump.
Osnabrueck Police said they searched a car during a traffic stop about 9 p.m. Saturday and discovered the approximately $12,900 worth of ecstasy tablets, which bore the image of Trump's face on one side and his name on the opposite side.
Police said they also seized a large amount of cash from the vehicle, which was registered in Austria.
The driver, a 51-year-old man, and his 17-year-old son were detained and are expected to be charged with drug trafficking, police said.
Police said the pair had been coming from Amsterdam, where the drugs are believed to have been produced.

*----- Car Thief Stopped to Look At Eclipse -----*
Authorities in Florida said they arrested a suspected car thief who pulled into a store while being pursued so he could buy a welding mask and look at the eclipse. The Orange County Sheriff's Office said members of the Auto Theft Unit were pursuing a car driven by Jocsan Feliciano Rosado, 22, when the vehicle pulled into a parking lot in Kissimmee. Deputies said Rosado went into the store and bought a welding helmet with blue flame decals on it. He was arrested while standing next to the stolen car and looking at the solar eclipse. "He never saw it coming," the sheriff's office said. "That only happens every 99 years."
*------- The Right Tool For The Right Job -------*
Police in Arkansas shared security camera footage of a thief using a forklift to steal an entire ATM from the drive-through lanes at a bank. The Conway Police Department posted a video showing a person in a forklift using the construction vehicle to uproot the ATM from its foundation and lift it into the air before it was loaded onto a truck and hauled away. Police said a worker at the First Service Bank discovered the ATM was missing and the drive-through area was damaged when she arrived for work. A review of the security camera footage revealed the 3 a.m. theft. Police said they suspect the thieves work in the construction industry.

The Walmart pervert is leaving his DNA on women? I'm sure it's what the DNA is in that he's leaving. -Michelle

Lewis; Years ago a friend suggested that if I was ever in a traffic accident while intoxicated while waiting for police to arrive go into nearest bar and have a few (or several) drinks. Then if you fail the breathalizer/sobriety test you can always honestly claim that you drank after the accident occurred. Of course the bartender who served you will be your witness. Still I prefer to just never drive drunk. -R.S.
[Good advice if you happen to get into an accident right in front of a bar.]
When I was 15 and in high school, my typing teacher was a buxom, lovely young teacher. It was my PLEASURE when she came up behind me to reach around and show me some typing technique. Of course there was contact with my back, from her front, which caused a rise in my pants. Hey, I was 15, and in lust. -Dewitt
[Let me guess, typing on a manual typewriter turns you on to this day?]
Maybe the reason that the student's feelings about the whole situation are never mentioned is because they'd rather that people did not know that the young man/young woman was having the time of their life?
