Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know You Needed

Man arrested for drug possession thought pills were ibuprofen
A 50-year-old Fort Walton Beach man was arrested Feb. 4 on charges of drug possession.
Gary Michael Johnson was being arrested on an active warrant for worthless checks when deputies found a white napkin in his pant pocket, said an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s report.
Wrapped in the napkin was a receipt and inside the receipt were six white pills later identified as Propoxyphene.
Deputies also found a straw with white powder residue inside.
Johnson told officers he thought the pills were ibuprofen and he would not say what the straw was used for. According to the report, he denied possession of the straw.
Man arrested after admitting marijuana was stolen
A Lexington man was charged with trafficking marijuana Tuesday after reporting that someone had stolen his drugs, according to court documents.
Stephen M. Bosch, 36, told Lexington police an armed man had forced his way into his apartment on Crosby Drive around 10:30 p.m. and took $180, according to police reports. While inside, officers noticed the smell of marijuana, and then Bosch admitted the man had also taken 10-1/2 grams of pot.
Police searched Bosch's residence and found another $225 in cash, a digital scale, rolling papers and other paraphernalia and an additional 140 grams of marijuana, which had been hidden in the garbage.
Nursing home staff accused of taking nude photos of patients
A Bremerton nursing home is under investigation, after the staff was caught allegedly taking nude photos of some of the patients. A nurse and two nursing aids have already been fired.
Susan Dreyfus, Secretary of the Department of Social and Health Services, says they are now investigating three nursing staff members at the Kitsap Health and Rehabilitation Center in Bremerton. They were fired after allegedly taking inappropriate photos of patients on their cell phones, and sharing them as entertainment.
New friends tortured and killed a disabled woman
Jennifer Daugherty's mom and stepdad didn't press for details when she mentioned she had made some new friends. The 30-year-old had the mental abilities of an adolescent but wasn't the kind to get in trouble, and she was even thinking about getting her own place soon.
Police found her body Thursday stuffed into a garbage can in a school parking lot; they say she had been forced to consume detergent and urine - and to write a fake suicide note - before she was fatally stabbed by attackers who also shaved her head and painted her face with nail polish. Six suspects have been charged, including her new "friends."
"She was exploited, and her kindness and her handicap made her very vulnerable," Daugherty's sister, Joy Burkholder, said. "She trusted everybody; she believed everyone was good, and no one would hurt her."

Those nursing home staff members deserve to be fired for their unethical behavior against our senior loved ones. May this serve as warning to all care providers to respect our seniors' privacy.
