Man Breaks Into Workplace, Steals His Own Paycheck
A 25-year-old man from James City County, Virginia is currently behind bars after police say he broke into his workplace and stole his own paycheck -- a paycheck he was scheduled to get the next day. Alexander Morton denies the charges, saying a co-worker gave him his paycheck a day before. Three days after he was accused of stealing and cashing his paycheck, Alexander was driving around town when he was pulled over by police. During a search, cops found two counterfeit $50 bills and Spice (synthetic weed) in his vehicle. Alexander, who has several past arrests for burglary, says he found the bills -- which he thought were real -- in Newport News, Virginia. As for the synthetic weed? He owns up to that, telling a reporter: “Yeah, I mean I had a one hit on me. You know what I’m saying? I had a one hit on me. What’s wrong with having Spice?” As the reporter pointed out, Spice is illegal.
