Almost $1 million in shark fins were seized by authorities down in Miami. That is 1,400 pounds of just the fins of the animal. It's suspected that the fish were caught in South America and were headed to Asia.

Officers in Santa Rosa County Florida busted a speeder who had Meth, GHB, Coke, Fentanyl, and MDMA in his car.
