Pro tip: If someone is trying to sell you Freon out of the back of their van, it’s probably stolen. Because this time of year, in Mississippi, that’s something that gets stolen, apparently.
It’s summer (not officially, but remember last week?), and people start getting desperate when temps go up. Gotta have coolant, and some folks gotta have Tanqueray, too.

Mug Shot of the Day
The lady in the mug shot below, Destiny Rene Keene, got picked up for contempt of court and possession of paraphernalia. Looks like she’s trying to tell the police photographer something … like, her real identity: MEXICO DESTINY.
(OK, maybe not.)
