BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — In what may be the first time this law has ever been used in South Palm Beach County, the Boca Raton Police Department charged a man with “illegal possession of a dairy case.”
According to a police report reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com, Christopher Hartmanis was riding his bicycle in the area of Camino Gardens Boulevard and Cyprus Way around 2 a.m. Monday. Hartmanis did not have a red reflector or light on the back of his bicycle, so was stopped by Boca Raton Police.
An officer approaching Hartmanis apparently saw a “National Dairy” case on the back of the bike. While we are attempting to obtain a photo of the case, it apparently is at it sounds. A case that a Milk Man might use to deliver dairy products.
Wrote the officer, “the black case, generally used for dairy delivery was marked ‘National Dairy’ on one side, and also marked with ‘Warning, use by other than registered owner is punishable by law.”
Not only wasn’t Hartmanis supposed to have the case, according to police, but he used it for non-dairy methamphetamines.
“Search incident to arrest revealed a black zipper pouch in the dairy case which held four orange partial capsule pieces containing a brownish rock-like substance. Also a search of a bottle found in Hartmanis’ hand revealed one orange partial capsule containing more brownish rock-like substance. (A test) turned purple indicating a positive test result for methamphetamine.”
Hartmanis was arrested and charged with methamphetamine possession and illegal possession of a dairy case. He also received a written violation for riding his bike without a red light or reflector. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on his own recognizance.
