Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know You Needed

The snake infestation house
Two sets of previous residents of a for-sale Idaho house said they moved out of the home for the same reason -- a snake infestation.
Neal and Denise Ard said they bought the house, which was built in 1920 near Rexburg, and soon discovered hundreds of garter snakes living inside the walls, under the floors and all around the home.
The Ards left the house in less than one year and it remained on the market until August 2009 when Ben and Amber Sessions moved in with their family.
The couple said the real estate agent warned them about the non-venomous snakes, but they did not spot the reptiles until they surfaced later in the fall.
The house is currently owned by a bank, which said contractors are sealing the foundation of the home in an attempt to keep the snakes out.
Man seeking drugs on Craigslist
A 31-year-old Vernon man faces drug possession charges after allegedly placing an advertisement seeking marijuana on Craigslist.
Police say members of the Statewide Narcotics Task Force took Michael Krebes into custody in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant where he allegedly went to pick up the pot. Krebes was charged with possession of less than 4 ounces of marijuana and was being held in lieu of $2,500 bond.
Police find meth in cars seized a year ago
Thai police have found 1.13 million methamphetamine pills hidden in three cars they confiscated and held for more than a year.
Senior narcotics police officer Lt. Gen. Atithep Patjamanon said police found the drugs after being tipped they were hidden in special compartments in the back seats. The cars had been seized from an auto theft suspect.
The Office of the Narcotics Control Board said 14 million methamphetamine pills were seized from January to April this year. That's compared to 51.6 million for all of 2010 and 27.4 million in 2009.
