A man finds out just how valuable whale vomit is. Plus a man steals multiple cars during his drunk outing.
VALUABLE WHALE VOMIT
A British man was walking on the beach when his dog discovered a lump of whale vomit. Whale vomit is known as ambergis and is an ingredient in perfume and is very valuable. Ken Williams found out exactly how valuable when he researched it online. The 6 pound lump of whale vomit was worth $158,550. “When I saw how much it could be worth, I went back and grabbed it. It is like walking on the beach and finding a bag of 50,000 pounds [$79,275] in cash,” Williams said.
MAN STEALS AMBULANCE AND 2 CARS
Alabama Police arrested Matthew Todd for driving under the influence after he crashed his car. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he escaped from after stealing an ambulance. Todd walked out of the hospital and jumped into an ambulance that was left running out the hospital. The ambulance ended up getting stuck on the side of the road, so Todd abandoned it and walked to a barn where he tried to steal a horse. The Assistant Chief said the horse was too wild and Todd was drunk drunk to properly saddle the horse, so he abandoned that idea and stole another car. After crashing that car, Todd stole a second car before he was arrested again.
