The Atlanta Journal-Constitutionreports that heavily armed Broward County deputies, accompanied by a helicopter and a K-9 unit, showed up at the home of retiree Dwayne Perry in Cartersville on Wednesday after someone spotted his okra plants from the air.
‘Hey Bob, why is there green stuff growing down there on that farm? Do ya’ think it might be Abelmoschus esculentus ?’
‘GREEN STUFF ON A FARM!! We got one now, Joe. Call it in to SWAT!’
“They were strapped to the gills,” Perry told the paper. “Anything could have happened.” Fortunately, no humans or dogs were killed.
