Police were waiting at the Walmart.

Sometimes you have to just let things go, like when you accidentally leave a pound of methamphetamine in your local Walmart. Walk away, it belongs to the universe now. But not all of us can do that. Some of us feel the need to poke the tiger, to press our luck. That’s what Pinellas County deputies say happened on Monday.

Investigators say a Pasco woman left a “Paw Patrol” backpack at a local Walmart earlier this week. Once she realized her mistake, she called the store and asked about the bag. Store employees told her that they had indeed found the bag and had taken it to their office for safe keeping. Ecstatic, the woman hurried back to the store to claim the lost item. Once she arrived, she was taken to a room where police officers were gathered. Turns out, the bag contained a pound of methamphetamine, which is generally frowned upon by law enforcement.

Deputies from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office say 40-year-old Karen Brodmerkel was observed on in-store surveillance cameras dropping a “Paw Patrol” backpack as she reached for an item on a shelf. After the pack fell from her arm, she walked away, apparently forgetting about the dropped bag. Later that day, police say Brodmerkel called the store and asked about the bag. A store employee told her that the bag had been located and was available for her to come pick up. What Brodmerkel didn’t know, was that the employee had looked inside the bag in an effort to determine who owned it.

That’s when they found multiple bags filled with a white substance, two other containers filled with another substance, a glass pipe, aluminum foil, razor blades, a lighter and scissors. The substances tested positive for meth and fentanyl, respectively.

Brodmerkel told investigators that neither the bag nor its contents belonged to her. The woman was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was released after posting bond and is awaiting trial. Source:

  • Rod Stewart

    “Jeff Beck was on another planet. He took me and Ronnie Wood to the USA in the late 60s in his band the Jeff Beck Group and we haven’t looked back since.

    “I’m in absolute shock at the passing of guitar god Jeff Beck. A true legend who inspired so many of us. I loved spending time with him whilst recording in Holland. We were doing Hysteria and he was recording with Mick Jagger on Mick’s first solo album. One of the true originals has departed and will never, ever be replaced.” – Rick Savage

  • Bernie Marsden

    “It’s with great sadness I post this photo. I first saw Jeff when my band opened for the Jeff Beck Group in 1968. After that I soon realised his sheer genius, a genius that continued for all his life. Now he’s gone, the best of the best. I’m devastated.

    I was fortunate that we became quite close, especially when the great drummer Jimmy Copley died in 2017. Jeff produced & played with Jim’s band Upp. We were regular hospital visitors & bonded in our anxieties over our dear friend. Tonight I’m raising a glass to him, Jimmy & Cozy.

    He always warmly welcomed me at his gigs over the years, as interested in my car as he was guitars, he was very funny to hang out with and easy to be around, which is perhaps different to what his image suggested – he loved that. My deep condolences to his wife Sandra.”

  • David Bowie

    “Sad to hear about the passing of guitarist Jeff Beck who died aged 78 on Tuesday after suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis. Our thoughts are with his family who have asked for privacy during this sad time. Jeff is pictured here with David at Les Paul’s 95th Birthday in 2010”

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
