An octagonal boat with a tiki hut built on it (in Key West, with a person aboard whom the Coast Guard described as showing “signs of intoxication).

Nitrate (in Belle Plaine, Kansas, at elevated levels in the drinking water).

Two Canadians (near Fergus Falls, Minnesota, allegedly with “67 firearms and various pistol magazines” in their pickup truck). 

A “homemade explosive device” (in a parking lot in Lagrange, Georgia).

A live World War II–era grenade (in Horry County, South Carolina, after having been mistakenly sold at a North Carolina antiques mall). 

A cat named Patches (in Santa Barbara, California, where it had been missing and presumed dead since its owner and 22 other people were killed in a mudslide in 2018).
