Florida may be known for some of the most incredulous crimes its citizens perform, but this one really takes the prize. Kristine Mittler received a summons to attend jury duty at the West Pasco Judicial Center, and like a good public citizen, she obeyed and went. Unfortunately, once she entered the metal detectors in the front of the courthouse, she set them off, prompting a search.
Turns out, she just couldn’t leave home without some cocaine and her meth straw. Lucky thing for the police that she wrapped them all in foil before heading to jury duty. She came there to see if she was picked as a juror for a court case, but now she’s being charged with possession of cocaine, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Maybe when she gets out of jail she’ll consider contacting us for meth rehab. At least that way she won’t have to worry about being arrested for possession the next time she goes into a government facility.
In the latest case of “oh Florida” moments, this one rises to the top.
Kristine Mittler committed to her civic duty by reporting to jury duty at the West Pasco Judicial Center. The only problem was that she also committed a crime when she packed foil packets of cocaine in her cargo pants pocket according to ABC Action News in Tampa Bay.
Court officials discovered Mittler’s drugs when the security alarm went off. She was carrying .6 grams of cocaine and a straw that tested positive for methamphetamine.
She told authorities she forgot the drugs were in her pocket.
The unfortunate kicker here is that Mittler was waiting to see if she’d been picked as an official juror. Instead, she’s facing charges of possession of cocaine, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Click Here to Continue Reading
