    FBI Offers Reward for Information on 'Armed and Dangerous' Drug Suspect
    Joshua Patrick Weldon

    Federal authorities are searching for a suspect in a drug case who fled after being released from jail and is considered "armed and dangerous."

    The Portland Press Herald reports the FBI's Southern Maine Gang Task Force said Wednesday they were offering a reward for information about Joshua Weldon's whereabouts.

    Weldon was arrested by the FBI in August and charged with conspiracy to distribute fentanyl. He was released last month but didn't go to a sober house, which was required under the conditions of his release.

    Sanford police spotted Weldon on Nov. 6 and tried to stop him before he fled. Police say Weldon got a ride to an apartment he broke into. Investigators believe Weldon is currently with his girlfriend.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
