A Florida man probably took a big gulp after cops snagged him on carjacking charges — because they traced the location of his frozen convenience store drink.
Bernell Travaughn Hegwood approached the victim’s car, holding a gun in one hand and an orange-colored, frozen Slurpee-like drink called a Frazil in the other. The driver gave a detailed description of the clear plastic cup, allowing officers to trace it to a nearby Shell gas station, where he and the cops looked at surveillance footage that showed Hegwood buying the drink and walking toward the parking lot where the carjacking took place.
After being apprehended, Hegwood told a Coral Springs detective the gas station photos were of him and confessed to carjacking one driver and trying to take another motorist’s car. (South Florida Sun Sentinel)
