It was a sad state of police affairs when my WVOer buddy was arrested. At one point there were over 1/2 dozen police involved (Slow Morning ?).

Some thought the WVO thing was cool, others could care less. After 30 minutes they all formed a huddle and after discussion came back with cuffs and the catch all charge of "lotiering /Prowling & possession of Burglery Tools".

Someone had to go to jail to justify all this investment in resources and time in this event(Lots of reports and manpower -6 squad cars,+ people to account for)

The case was kicked as the WVOer was not stealing grease (Not even looking at grease) had no "pumping" equipment, etc. However he did have to spend the day in the "pokey" + go thru the hassle of getting his truck out of confiscation

Was the grease used to deepfry donuts? The cops might have over-reacted if they thought their food supply was being threatened.

Cops busted him for Possession of Burglery tools (also know as a "Toolbox" if you own a pick-up truck)+ lotiering and prowling. Which in Florida means by stature "..if a law enfofcement officer feels suspions are well grounded.."

It is a catch all law used by law enforcement to "catch and release" anyone they wish. YOu can beat the rap-you cannot beat the "ride"


I'd like to see them try to make that stick - of course they only go after those who wouldn't mount a good defense. Man I'd love for them to try some stupid thing like that with me. I'd go to town. I'd then sue for pain, suffering, lost wages, mental stress - shiite I'd OWN the rendering company by the time it was done.

You might beat the rap, but you cannot beat the ride.

Another problem is that some police depts DON'T know that there is a (CA) law on the books. Had my 55 gals drum, the rain lid taken away by a renderer. When I had the local cops show up and take my complaint, he didn't know what "law this would fall under". My question to him was "the grease is just like a car. It's an item that is stolen". The cop did call the renderer and ask to speak to the manager before 5 PM. The next day, two men from the renderer's company emptied their 55 and took it away. I was standing there with my 55 drum. Haven't had any more problems. I brought a hard copy of the CA law to the police headquarters.
