Turtle Hunts Down And Catches Criminal, Eventually.

Turtle Hunts Down And Catches Criminal, Eventually.

By Jonathan Kimak

This is part interesting and part adorable. A GPS-fitted box turtle helped uncover a marijuana grow-op in Rock Creek Park, south of Maryland. The turtle was wearing the GPS device for a research project run by park rangers. It’s not sure what sort of research the turtle was performing but my guess is it has something to do with fighting evil ninjas.

The turtle stumbled upon an area filled with marijuana plants. When a park ranger followed the GPS signal to retrieve the hero turtle they found the stash and also determined the culprit was a 19 year-old named Isiah Johnson of Chevy Chase, Maryland. Isiah will be charged and the unamed drug sniffing turtle will go back to the sewers, I mean ranger outpost, to fight crime another day.
