The Clearwater Police Department, posted a bizarre story on their social media... 43-year-old Lindsay Rodewald was stopped while riding her bicycle, which did not have lights on during the night.
While speaking with police, she gave them verbal consent to search her backpack.
Officers found a broken glass pipe with crystal residue. A field test indicated the presence of methamphetamine.
Rodewald told the police department she forgot the pipe was in her bag and that she used meth a few days prior.
Upon further investigation, a baby raccoon was found in the woman’s backpack. Clearwater Police said it was around a week old.
The baby critter appeared in good condition. It was taken to the Veterinary Emergency Group in Tampa. It will be cared for alongside other young raccoons before being released into the wild.
