Man Arrested For Having A Milk Crate On His Bicycle
Be very careful what accessories you chose for you bicycle. Timothy Troller put a milk crate on the front of his and now he’s behind bars.
The Auburndale, Florida man was riding his bike with another guy when police spotted the two of them. Authorities saw that the crate had Sunshine State Dairy Farms written on both sides but Troller claims he found it on the side of the road.
The cops didn’t believe him. Troller is now facing “Possession of Dairy Crate” charges and could face “a fine or spend a few days in jail.” “If [police] see somebody riding a bicycle at 10 o’clock at night they may have a conversation with them,” Polk County Sheriff’s Office Spokesperson Carrie Horstman explains. “They are looking for people who are doing even the smallest crime, because, what we’ve learned is, those who will go out an steal a milk crate, for example, are the same people who are probably breaking into cars, breaking into your house.”
