Police determined King had been living outside the library manufacturing meth for about one month. His girlfriend, Stolz, would help him by getting materials for him to cook the meth with.
Both have been charged with possession of chemicals with intent to manufacture and manufacture of methamphetamine, both felonies.
Have yourself a weekend, Florida. Every Friday I wake up and I know I’ll have a Florida story and thankfully this week was no different. Did I expect it to be a homeless couple cooking meth on the grounds of a library in Sarasota? I did not, but when it comes to Florida nothing surprises me anymore. Safe to say this handsome couple are no Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. At this point, I think I’m going to make a scrapbook filled with all the crazy shit that I’ve read about people from Florida. That way when I eventually become a father and a grandfather I can show my children and grandchildren that scrapbook and tell them to never go to Florida. I have to imagine they’ll understand.
