Florida Woman’s Strange Hiding Place Didn’t Fool the Police
If Florida Woman thought she had the perfect (if a little strange) hiding place to fool the police, she had another thing coming.
Because if going through the couch cushions isn’t already standard operating procedure for Florida police officers, perhaps it should definitely be included, because you never know what you’re going to find.
Like in this case, a fentanyl-selling fugitive they were looking for.
FLORIDA MAN STRIKES AGAIN!
DATELINE – Citrus County and the Saga of Florida Woman Stacy Usher.
If you’re like my family, we did some cleaning before Thanksgiving. Had friends, family coming over. You want the house to look nice. Part of our cleaning routine is to go through the sofa cushions, because you never know what you’ll find.
Hey, my car keys! Oh, so that’s where the TV remote was! There’s money in there!
You never know what you’re going to find. And if you’re the Florida police, well, it may be a fugitive you’re looking for.
Police in Florida were looking for 39-year old Stacy Usher. She was wanted on a parole violation for selling Fentanyl. Police searched her home last Tuesday. They could not find her anywhere.
Have you checked the couch?
That is, until they checked the couch cushions. It turns out that’s exactly where Stacy was hiding – inside the couch. I don’t know how she got herself in there, but nonetheless.
Now it’s unclear if the police had been tipped off by someone letting them know, hey, she’s inside the couch. Or if checking the couch is a standard part of their procedure.
Either way, Stacy’s in a lot of trouble. In addition to the drugs and the parole violation, she also has a history of fraud and grand theft and passing bad checks. She probably thought, this is the perfect place to hide.
She’s going to need a better hiding place next time.
