Taste the Rainbow

A Kentucky man is accused of selling more than sweets out of his "Get It" candy store in Louisville.

Lorenzo Byrd is facing numerous drug charges, including trafficking in marijuana and trafficking a controlled substance, reports WDRB.com. Police said they found 50 baggies of marijuana and a bag containing 14 pain pills.

In 2012, Byrd was arrested for a similar charge -- selling marijuana out of another candy store.

Busted

A Canadian mother and daughter were stopped trying to cross into the United States border with nearly $60,000 in their bras.

The money was discovered after the duo drove to the American side and border agents in Detroit inspected their car and found $15,000.

During a pat down, agents discovered lumps in the bras of Moura El-Asmar, 51, and her 16-year-old daughter, and found $59,000 in cash sewn into the linings of the undergarments.

It's a crime to try to transport more than $10,000 in U.S. currency in or out of the U.S.

El-Asmar is charged with cash smuggling and lying to a federal agent. Her daughter wasn't charged.

And scene.

Three teachers are under criminal investigation after authorities found their screenplay about three teachers with the same names drinking and doing drugs with students while having sex with their parents.

The screenplay, entitled "Graduation Crashers" and written by three male social studies teachers at Exeter (N.H.) High School, was discovered after police looked into a former student's complaint that she had been sexually assaulted in 2009.

In one scene, a social studies teacher is approached by a desperate mother.

"If there is ANYTHING I could do to help [my son] pass, I would be willing and able," the mother tells the social studies teacher.

The teacher then smiles and says, "Well, there is one thing."
