He apparently didn’t have the best timing.

Panhandle deputies said they noticed a car driving quicky down a road,  swerving around their around parked patrol cars as they were investigating a robbery, reports the Panama News Journal.

The driver, Troy Alexander Duncan, then allegedly abruptly stopped near them and got out of the car.

And no wonder, as officers found 12 Mason jars filled with grass, strips of acid and a bag of Xanax pills in the car, according to his arrest report.

Local high schools compete in crime scene investigation competition

However, on Friday morning, 150 local high school student spent hours competing in something you don’t see every day: crime scene investigations.

Friday marked the sixth year of the Northeast Tennessee Crime Scene Investigation Competition. This year, it was held at Valley Forge Free Will Baptist Church.

In a matter of a few hours, students divide up and must demonstrate their proficiency in various elements of crime scene investigation and forensics such as blood-splatter analysis, crime-scene sketching and ballistics among many, many others.

Every separate aspect has a different scenario, such as a carjacking or a drug deal that went wrong.

Forensic work is nothing like ‘glamourous CSI’, say CID crime scene specialists

A lifeless body was found lying on a floor with a pool of blood trickling near the head of the “victim”. Gambling paraphernalia was strewn on a table next to the body. One police investigator lifted a shoe print at the scene while another dusted a broken safe with fingerprint powder in search of evidence of a suspected crime.

These two investigators are crime scene specialists who were demonstrating a crime scene investigation at the Singapore Police Force’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Forensic Conference on Thursday (9 November).

Senior crime specialist Geraldine Ng, 30, told reporters that she has encountered people who are interested in pursuing a career in forensics. But she stressed to them that the nature of her job is nothing like the hit television show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
