Oviedo police used a test kit and said a powdery substance tested positive for cocaine; police said they also found marijuana in the car. 

Cashe was on probation for marijuana and cocaine charges. 

However, further testing by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement confirmed the powdery substance was really drywall. 

Cashe sat in jail for 90 days before the test results came back.

“I sat there 90 days knowing I was innocent,” Cashe said. 

Police Tuesday released body-camera video of Cashe’s arrest in March. 

“We had probable cause. Our presumptive tests on the cocaine was positive and that’s what we go off of. That’s why with every presumptive that we do, we send it off to FDLE,” said Lt. Heather Capetillo with the Oviedo Police Department. 

Police use a NarcoPouch, made by Safariland, to test for the narcotics. 

Safariland is the same company used by Orlando police when they arrested a man after doughnut glaze tested positive for meth. 

WFTV asked Oviedo police if there was an issue with the test kits. 

“We will probably review test kits. (We will) contact FDLE and see if there are other test kits or other brands we can use,” Capetillo said.

Fake Time magazine covers displayed at Donald Trump’s golf club locations

UPDATE June 27 at 7:00 p.m.: The Washington Post reported that by Tuesday evening, a spokeswoman for Time Magazine said that the publication “asked the Trump Organization to remove the phony cover from the walls where it was on display.”

Original story:

President Donald Trump has a framed Time Magazine cover of himself decorating at least four of his golf clubs, two in the United States and two overseas, but according to reports, the cover is fake.

According to a report in The Washington Post, the magazine cover is dated March 1, 2009, and features a full-size image of Trump. The headline reads, “Donald Trump: ‘The Apprentice’ is a television smash!”

Then, in another place the cover, in all caps no less, is the statement: “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!”

A reporter visiting one of Trump’s properties recently saw the cover and noticed several discrepancies from normal Time covers. For one, the red border on the Trump cover was thinner than a normal Time cover, and it lacks the thin white line that the magazine usually features. The fake cover also features two exclamation points – something that a cover from Time normally wouldn’t feature.

The Washington Post contacted Time Magazine to find out if the cover was, in fact, a fake, and the publication revealed that it was not a real magazine cover.

There was no March 1, 2009, Time Magazine, and on top of that, Trump was not featured on any of the publication’s covers in all of 2009.

The Trump Organization has not responded to requests for comment from The Post, and when they contacted White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to find out why the clubs displayed a fake cover, she replied that they “couldn’t comment on the decor at Trump Golf clubs one way or another.”
