A man was arrested after police mistook his cat litter for illegal drugs.

Ross Lebeau, 24, from Texas, was pulled over in his car by police who searched his vehicle and discovered the suspicious substance hidden in a sock, which they believed to be crystal methamphetamine.

The officers arrested the driver on suspicion of possessing the forbidden substance and kept him in custody for three days before they discovered the alleged drug in the underwear garment was cat litter, which the driver used to prevent condensation forming in his vehicle.

According to the Metro newspaper, police soon released Ross from his cell after realising the mistake.

A 17-year-old girl expressed her shock after finding her doppelg%0nger during a shopping trip in September last year, as she claimed the other person was almost identical to her.

The girl shared a picture of her with her double and posted it to her Twitter account with the caption: "I found my literal doppelganger just now wtf.(sic)."

The tweet soon went viral and gained over 22,000 retweets and 37,000 likes.

However, the girl - who has remained unnamed - has since received additional portraits of other girls who look like her, according to the Daily Mirror newspaper.

And one Twitter user went to the extent of creating a collage for the teen so she could see how many real-life lookalikes she has.

A woman broadcast her partner's infidelity by putting up posters.

The woman - who is only known as Linda - sought revenge on her former beau by pinning dozens of laminated signs around Warwick town centre to expose her cheating partner, Graham, in the hope he realises his mistake and their relationship has officially ended, according to the Metro newspaper.

The poster, which features a heart with her Graham's name on it, read: "If she is so good in bed you can stay there".

Linda's note concludes with her wishing her previous lover a 'Happy New Year'.

And people have since flocked to Twitter to share their opinion about the shocking message, with some intrigued to find out who the suspected Graham was.

One social media user, Alison Tonkin, wrote: "Well there's a Graham in Warwick who's having a much worse day than me. Go Linda #WomanScorned #NaughtyBoy (sic)."

A cat and a dog are among the most bizarre belongings left behind in a Travelodge hotel.

The hotel chain claimed a British Blue Shorthair cat named Yoda and a Shih Tzu called Harold were top of their list of discoveries residents have failed to take home with them after their stay.

According to the Metro newspaper, the owner of Harold eventually came back for their dog after realising they had left him there, although it is unknown whether the owners of Yoda returned to fetch her.

Other unusual items found among the UK hotels included a gold portrait of Elvis Presley, a wedding cake, keys to a mansion in India, a pair of round-the-world cruise tickets and a barrister's wig and gown.

Shakila Ahmed, spokeswoman for Travelodge, said: "Our customers tell us that the pace of modern life is fast and furious and time is of the essence, especially when getting from A to B, therefore valuable possessions are easily being forgotten."
