Maybe WWLP re-prioritizes what it leads with?

In Springfield, Massachusetts, before the snow fell down, a fall went down on snow of the illicit variety. Last week, cops busted two men, seizing 2300 bags of heroin, almost 23 thousand dollars, and three handguns. One bag thrown into the backseat of a car had a thousand bags of heroin in it! That’s a great bust!

But local news being local news makes sure to lead with what really matters: almost 1400 bags had “Lucky Charms” stamped on them.

Keep aiming high for that local Emmy, guys.

Wii would like to bust your drugs

Guns drawn, cops busted down the door of a suspected south Florida drug dealer, then proceeded to rock it out – on Wii bowling. A security cam captured some playing video games while others searched for drugs and weapons.

A sheriff’s detective assigned to catalog the goods repeatedly bowled frames – and when she nailed strikes on two in a row, she raised her arms triumphantly, jumping and kicking.

Chiefs of police in three other jurisdictions forming the task force that performed the raid likewise bemoaned the bad publicity. But it could have been much worse than that. At least those two Japanese guys in the Nintendo commercials didn’t show up at the door while the cop was making some strikes.
