So on Aug. 1st after I got done taking my cat to the vet in the AM, I decide to de-frost the big upright freezer in the kitchen, My 21 yr old daughter and her 6 mo old baby are visiting and keeping my 7 yr old and 4 yr old out of my way so I can accomplish this task.
I have a very long driveway and my oldest daughter says "Mom look at the cars coming up the driveway" and before I can even get to the window she is yelling "its the cops!!" so I go to the front door to open it and they push the door open yelling "search warrant secure your dogs!!!" (five police)so I'm running all over the kitchen trying to catch my 3 little dogs and telling my little kids it's ok etc. and the police are yelling at me to stop moving so I finaly ask "do you want me to secure the dogs or stop moving?" they tell me to get the dogs I do and put them in thier kennel and then they have us all sit down.
I ask to see the search warrant 4-5 times while the police are milling about making sure its all secure and finaly one of the police tell another police "give her the search warrant so she'll get off my back"
Mean while my husband is sleeping he works nights and sleeps during the day. The police want to go in the bedroom I tell them to "stop theres a big dog that will bite in there" so they have me wake up my husband and put the big dog in the kennel.
Then they tell me they are there because my older son(who is 25) has been arrested for drugs!!! They ask me a bunch of questions like where he sleeps etc. and really he doesn't even stay with us he just comes by once and awhile to eat etc. so I say the couch and they take the cushions off etc.
Then they go upstairs and in my spare room I hatch eggs so I have 3 incubators and a couple of brooders set up and they ask me about those and why I have chicks in the house, they ask me if I am an "animal mill" LOL. I say no I just hatch eggs blah blah blah.
They tear apart my house dig through my underwear drawer, ask me to open my safe they found in my closet and I have no idea where the keys are so then they ask whats in it and I say a 9mm and personal papers then they ask if there are anymore guns and I say "yes in the closet you just looked in" they ask where? and have me point it out so I point out the rifle in a camo case and then one police starts yelling at another police because he had searched the closet and didn't find it. And our big dog that is a 95lb bulldog was in his kennel just a growling and barking and sounding really mad while they were searching the bedroom (thats where his kennel is) and they asked me if I could make him stop doing that and I say "what do you want me to do let him out of the kennel?" LOL they all said "NO" in unison LOL
They had seen some beekeeping supplies on the deck and laundry room (I was getting ready to add another box to my pink hive) they ask me if I have bees to I say "yes" and ask if they want to search the hives? they say "no way"
They didn't find anything but a factory sealed baggie full of red powder they found in the garage that they asked me if I knew what it was but I didn't know, so they took it in an evidence bag and left. But later on that day I realized it was going to be sidewalk chalk for stencils. So i guess they will test it and find that out LOL.
Oh and they had a K9 dog but never took it out of the car, I wonder why?
What I learned on this day is
1. I try to raise my children right but I guess that doesn't always happen
2. A rifle in a camo gun case is really camoflauged
3. If I ever want to hide something I don't want the police to find I will hide it in a beehive
The End(kind of)
