I’ve seen a lot of local news videos in my life, but this one from Eastern Kentucky may take the cake. A man in Floyd County was robbed this week by his cousin, who he suspected was high on meth. What did he steal? That’s where this gets interesting.
“It’s the most random assortment of things. It looked like he was getting ready to go to a pallet sale,” the victim, Mason Tackett, told WYMT. “Who steals a cheese grater? He’s got the works. Lysol! He stole an empty bottle of spray! What got me the most was my soap. He stole my soap! Who steals soap?!”
Honestly! Tackett confronted his cousin, Philip Hagans, before he took off with the items, which is when things got a little scary.
“I went around the back of that house he was at and seen my stuff. And then I come back out and he pulled a gun on me when I got back around the house. I guess he thought I was upset with him.”
Hagans was charged with receiving stolen property and being a convicted felon with a firearm.
“Must have been been a bad batch around here because Floyd County’s gone crazy the past four days,” Tackett said.
Meth’s a helluva drug, kids. Stay away.
