Florida Man Arrested For Having Milk Crate Attached To Bicycle
Posted by: Police State Daily  in Police State Enforcement October 2, 2016 2 Comments

An Auburndale, Florida man was arrested Thursday night by a Polk County sheriff’s deputy after he was spied with a milk crate attached to his BMX bicycle.
According to reports, Timothy Troller and another man were stopped at around 10 p.m. when a deputy saw that the crate was clearly marked with the name “Sunshine State Dairy Farms” on its sides.
Troller claimed that he had found the crate abandoned on the side of the road and strapped it to his bike to carry things. The deputy wasn’t sympathetic to his story and charged him with Possession of Dairy Crate and took him to jail.
Polk County sheriff’s office spokesperson Carrie Horstman made it clear that police are not going to tolerate anyone in possession of a milk crate – no matter how innocuous the possession might be.
“You’re possessing something that is stolen from a business, whether it’s as small as a milk crate, or a shopping cart,” Horstman said. “He was charged with possessing stolen property. He may pay a fine or spend a few days in jail.”
“[Police] are looking for people who are doing even the smallest crime” Horstman added. “What we’ve learned is, those who will go out and steal a milk crate, for example, are the same people who are probably breaking into cars, breaking into your house.”
Troller was scheduled to make his first appearance in court for his charge on Friday. It is unclear what occurred, if he was allowed to be released from jail or if he made bail.
