    Polk County man arrested for having milk crate

    AUBURNDALE, Fla. (WFLA) – A Polk County man is behind bars after a deputy spotted him with a milk crate.

    On Thursday just before 10 p.m. a PSCO deputy stopped two men on bikes. The deputy noticed that Timothy Troller, of Auburndale, had a dairy crate attached to his a purple Mongoose BMX bicycle.

    The dairy crate had the business name of Sunshine State Dairy Farms clearly marked on the sides of the dairy crate. Troller claimed he found the crate on the side of the road and attached it to his bike.

    Troller was arrested and charged with Possession of Dairy Crate. “I never heard of it. This is the first time ever,” Edward Hale, Troller’s grandfather said. “He didn’t know it was against the law, or he wouldn’t have put it on the front of the bicycle and rode up and down the road,” Hale said.

    “You’re possessing something that is stolen from a business, whether it’s as small as a milk crate, or a shopping cart,” Polk County Sheriff’s Office Spokesperson, Carrie Horstman said. “He was charged with possessing stolen property. He may pay a fine or spend a few days in jail.”

    “Deputies are actually out there proactively looking for things that don’t look right; looking for suspicious things. If they see somebody riding a bicycle at 10 o’clock at night they may have a conversation with them. They are looking for people who are doing even the smallest crime, because, what we’ve learned is, those who will go out an steal a milk crate, for example, are the same people who are probably breaking into cars, breaking into your house,” Horstman said.

    Troller is currently at the Polk County Jail. Hale said his grandson has a long rap sheet, but doesn’t agree with this arrest. “Wait until he does something wrong. That’s the way I feel about it. It’s silly to me, and besides if it was [illegal], it shouldn’t be enough to carry you to jail,” Hale said.

    Horstman says it’s a good reminder. “You know the old rule we always tell our kids if it’s not yours, don’t take it. Don’t ride around with it attached to your bike.”

    i'm torn on this. as he is a fuck up, i don't care that he's in jail for something stupid. then again, i've had milk crates and don't think i deserved to go to jail for it.

    i wonder if crime goes down when he's resting in jail?

    milk crates were very handy for all kinds of stuff back in my youff.

    i painted TWO white post office shipping boxes to see which color I like better. This is a federal crime, I believe.

    What about people who keep those tubs from the post office. That's a Federal offense. The FBI needs to get out of the donut shops an start making arrests.

    Just emptied out mine today at my dads house. There are some empty milk crates there now. We can set up a sting operation! :idea:

    I am pro law enforcement, but this really? This carries jail time? When I was 15 I worked at a bagel store and trust me the dairy company did not give 2 shits about getting those crates back. Everyone would use those things as chairs or step stools whatever the fuck

    I'm confused.

    Why was he riding a bike? Doesn't he have car service?
