Police in Vigo, Spain, say they have been ordered to guard a collection of empty Christmas presents for the past week. Six police officers in the city have been watching the packages 24 hours a day, in 8-hour shifts. The mayor of Vigo ordered the empty boxes be watched. Why is unclear.

A Florida man was arrested in Pennsylvania after he was caught transporting 20 pounds of pot wrapped as Christmas presents. Randy Jesus Valdivia was pulled over by state police Thursday afternoon. Police said they observed indications of criminal activity, and asked Valdivia if they could search his car. Officials said he consented to the search and police then found and opened the presents, which held 40 individually wrapped bags containing marijuana. Street value: $160,000.

A Tennessee man said he’d give a reward to anyone who could locate and capture his pet zebra, which has been on the run for three weeks. Zeek the zebra jumped the fence at Ronald Price’s Cleveland, Tennessee, farm three weeks ago and has been making appearances in the area ever since. The 750-pound animal has shown up at local businesses, area homes and even near the highway since his escape.
