Even though Anderson said he bought the ice cream carton he licked, Walmart replaced the entire inventory. As per reports, authorities said that Anderson's 'prank' had caused public health concerns about safety and quality of consumer products offered for public consumption. His actions, they claimed, impacted Blue Bell consumer confidence and also caused a financial loss for the company.
Port Arthur is a city of around 55,000 people in the State of Texas.
A five-year old's prank call to the police accidentally alerted the cops to her mother's stash of cannabis plants. A young girl from Albion Park Rail, Shellharbour dialled the Australia police emergency number, which is 000 on March 3. According to reports, the call seemed urgent enough that the operator decided to send officers to the caller's house.
According to reports, the young girl called the police at 12:10 am. It is still unclear what the girl said on the call but the operator still decided to dispatch officers to the caller's address in an effort to ensure everything is fine. As per reports, Lake Illawarra Police District Sergeant Peter Northey stated that the exchange on the phone call was serious enough that the operator deemed it fit to send police.
After the incident, it was determined that the caller was just making a prank call. According to reports, after arriving at the caller's Elm Street residence the police did not hear a response from the residents. The officers' suspicion grew when they saw a light in the garage down the side of the house.
Reports further quoted Sergeant Northey say that after seeing the light in the Garage the officers went down the garage in order to check on the condition of the residents and ensure that no one was under duress. After entering the garage the officer found the illegal cannabis plants.
