Sheriff shares full pic of Florida man arrested in cow pajamas: ‘you may want to consider MOOOOOO-ving’

When a Florida man was arrested Friday during a drug bust, the Sheriff’s Office found great amusement in his “udder-ly confused” expression that matched his animal print pajamas.

The Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office coordinated their Narcotics Task Force and Special Response Team Friday when serving a probable cause narcotics search warrant in Okeechobee, Fla. Among the six individuals detained during the drug bust was one Richard Anthony Bonnell who dressed rather informally to receive the unexpected company.

The Sheriff’s Office shared an arrest photo on Facebook of the 43-year-old Bonnell adorned in one-piece pajamas boasting a black-and-white spotted cow print. The onesie was accented with pink buttons, cuffs and trim which Bonnell matched with a pink baseball hat and a snug pink collar around his neck.

“If you want to deal drugs in Okeechobee County, you may want to consider MOOOOOO-ving,” Sheriff Noel E. Stephen wrote in the post detailing the arrest.

Stephen went on to explain that, “During the residence search, methamphetamine, ammunition, and drug paraphernalia were located.”

Five individuals were at the residence in addition to Bonnell when the search was conducted including David Allen Lewis, Monique Rumsley, Karlie Lacey, Kimberly Stein and Loren Johnston. They were all detained and the Sheriff noted that several had been previously arrested.

“Monique Rumsley was arrested for the Sale of Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Possession of drug paraphernalia,” Stephen wrote.

“Also arrested were Richard Anthony Bonnell, David Allen Lewis, and Karlie Lacey for Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of drug paraphernalia,” the report went on. “Bonnell, whom we see in the colorful outfit looking ‘udder-ly’ confused, received an additional charge of Possession of ammunition by a convicted felon.”

It was also reported that Johnston was arrested for drug possession. No further details were provided on Kimberly Stein.

The actions of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office appear in stark contrast to cities across the nation where the rising drug epidemic has been fueled by decriminalization. Washington County District Attorney Kevin Barton, who serves the area surrounding Portland, Oregon, recently decried the lax laws in his county.

“Well-intentioned voters thought they were voting for one thing: treatment and help. But really what was behind that was an effort to decriminalize drug possession – meth, heroin, hard drugs – the types of drugs that are driving out-of-control property crime and violent crime now in Oregon,” he went on. “It’s a false promise. And unfortunately, it’s the tragic result that so many of us predicted would happen but hoped that wouldn’t.”

Meanwhile, the Drug Enforcement Administration reported in April that a 31-year-old Okeechobee County resident had been sentenced to 130 months in federal prison for trafficking methamphetamine. Juan Manuel Nieves sold the drug on three separate occasions according to the records. The differences between soft-on-crime progressivism and rule-of-law conservatism are playing out in real-time.
