LOWELL, Mich.—Lowell police say a local scrapper has provided the perfect example of what not to do with appliances.
An officer pulled over the scrapper early Thursday morning after spotting him driving with a stove sitting on top of his car. Police say the stove was not strapped down, and the man could be ticketed for driving with an unsecured load, which comes with a hefty fine.
