While Widespread Panic was wrapping up their winter tour with a killer performance at the Civic Center in Savannah, GA (Watch highlights here), it seems local police were working on a performance of their own.

The report in Savannah Now indicates that US currency and a vehicle were also seized in the operation. The report also features this damning parking lot photo:Naturally, the connection between drugs, law enforcement, and Widespread Panic conjures the memory of Troy Goode, who lost his life after being restrained by authorities outside of a WSP show last summer.

Kanu joined the Swedish outfit from Spanish Primera Iberdrola side Sevilla this summer following the expiration of her six-month contract. The 23-year-old is gradually establishing herself in Sweden, having featured in three matches, scoring once and providing an assist in two starts for Unogard’s team this season. Having broken her Damallsvenskan duck last Saturday, the manager believes the Nigerian striker has huge potential in her while encouraging her not to rest on her oars. “Everyone can see that she has huge potential,” Unogard told Goal. “She still has to improve in defending but is a great asset for us offensively. Uchenna is a very humble person. “So I don’t need to tell her anything other than to keep improving and learning, and prepare well for a long and a competitive season.”Advertisement Promoted Content7 Worst Things To Do To Your PhoneWorld’s Most Delicious FoodsEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?
