When a cleaning crew showed up at a Berkeley, California, home last Monday, they were informed by Eddie Lee Lankford III that he was working on the house and they could take the day off.

Police arrived to find Lankford stepping out of the shower and as he was being arrested, he informed officers that he’d taken the homeowner’s Tesla on a shopping trip earlier in the day. Helping to explain Lankford’s antics, officers found methamphetamine among his belongings.

In Cardiff, Wales, 44-year-old Richard Jones was legally growing marijuana that he said was for his own use. Unfortunately for Jones, police still arrested Jones after determining the 50 marijuana plants produced more pot than one person could possibly smoke.
