I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before this turtle is acclaimed as a “hero”:
A box turtle, outfitted with GPS, was being tracked by the National Park Service for research purposes. On July 14th, the turtle, located in Rock Creek Park, was found in a marijuana field just south of the Maryland line.
U.S. Park Police set up surveillance and discovered a suspect caring for the plants. The suspect, identified as 19-year-old Isiah Johnson of Chevy Chase, Maryland has been arrested.
