The Kilgore Police Department is looking to add a little humor to your "Hump Day" by implementing their "You Can't Make This Stuff Up" campaign.
"These will consist of actual calls and incidents KPD officers have responded to in the past," the department said. "You can't follow us on Live PD, but you can see a little snip-it of what officers encounter. The names and locations have been deleted or changed to protect the innocent."
The initiative began on February 13, with a hilarious first post.
But beware, this one is a doozy!

Bicycle Stop/Arrest: Mr. Tweaker, W/M [white male], arrested for possession of penalty [Group 1].
Officer Jones was checking the dead end road off of Dreadville and discovered "Tweaker" riding with no headlight after dark.
A traffic stop was conducted, and it was discovered he was in possession of three syringes (one loaded) and eight individual bags of methamphetamine weighing approximately 0.5 grams each. The total drug weight was approximately. 4.1 grams (not including packaging).
"Tweaker" was also wearing all women's clothing and had numerous adult toys and lubricants in his possession (beware during further contacts as Corporal Smith, who was assisting Officer Jones, learned the hard way - use gloves).
I can only imagine what got on Cpl. Smith, nor do I want to know. Meth will cause the strangest behavior. This individual was eventually sentenced to prison. This was from many years ago, and our narcotics officers at the police department and DEA have made a huge impact in the area. We have more to do, but we don't see near the methamphetamine arrests we did five years ago. The new district attorney, Tom Watson, has pledged to be aggressive with drug prosecutions, so dealers beware.
