DELRAY BEACH, FL ( — You can’t make this stuff up. PBSO Detective J. Lawless — seriously, Det. Lawless — has co-written one of the best probable cause affidavits we have ever read. It involves the Delray Beach couple of Naomi and Daniel Friedman — owners of a bait and tackle store in Lake Park.

Police allege they baited, then tackled (among other things) men who the Friedmans claim stole from the store earlier in the month. The Friedmans allegedly disabled their surveillance system after luring the men to the store where a large wad of cash — and a gun — all become part of the story.  While Det. Lawless has the best cop name ever, we don’t want to leave out Det. T. Rebholz who also investigated.

The Friedmans are now spending time in the Palm Beach County Jail, charged with robbery, destroying evidence, kidnap and more.
