What kind of person steals a man's cheese grater? Or an empty bottle of Lysol spray? A meth head, that's who, claims Mason Tackett, who saw an unusual assortment of his belongings stacked up outside his Floyd County home, as if in preparation for a yard sale.
Tackett explained it all in an interview with television station WYMT that has gained traction on social media. And though methamphetamine use — still a problem after the issue faded from public view after raids in the 1990s shut down multiple labs in Kentucky — is nothing to joke about, Tackett's interview is worthy of a stand-up comedy gig.
That is, the story is funny until Tackett gets to the part where his cousin, Phillip Hagans, allegedly pulled a gun on him. Hagans, who is charged with receiving stolen property and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, is being held on $25,000 bond, the report said. His preliminary hearing is set for Tuesday in Floyd County District Court.
The TV station's report said Tackett confronted Hagans after neighbors alerted him they someone carrying items out of his house — though for the life of him, he can't figure out what prompted the alleged thief to take certain items.
"What got me the most was my soap. He stole my soap. Who steals soap?" Tackett told the television station.
