Latest Horse Meat Discovery Sets a New Record For Creepiness
Cops discovered what they believe is more black-market horse meat in Northwest Miami-Dade County today -- this time, sitting in coolers in an abandoned blood-stained white van.
This morning, cops found the battered Econoline sitting at 13101 NW 182nd Street, with a "full hand print of blood... smeared on the rear doors below the windows" and elsewhere on the outside of the van. The officers found two ice coolers full of 200 pounds of meat.
According to a police report, eighteen cops showed up at the scene, probably before they realized that wasn't human blood all over the van. They located the rotund luminary who owns the MeatMobile, 35-year-old 272-pound 5'4 roofer Ramon Clemente, who we'll dub "Guajiro O.J." for his mode of transportation. They cuffed him on a separate charge, but it's not clear what that charge is.
It all sounds pretty bizarre and Equus/Saw-ish to us. We'll let you know as we find out more.
