A traffic stop revealed quite a surprise for responding officers on a highway in Punta Gorda, Florida on Monday, May 6, 2019. 

Deputies from the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office were stationed on Tamiami Trail, some 100 miles south of Tampa, conducting traffic enforcement. They pulled over a blue pickup truck after it ran a stop sign at around 3:30 a.m. The truck was being driven by 22-year-old Michael Clemons, and contained a passenger, Ariel Machan-Le Quire, 25. The pair told the officers they had been collecting frogs and snakes from under an overpass. The deputy asked for Clemons driver’s license, registration, and insurance card.
