MIAMI — A cold-hearted Chinese woman who was charged with stomping on a protected sea turtle nest has been arrested yet again.
CBS Miami reports that 41-year-old Chinese citizen Yaqun Lu was originally arrested on June 15 in Miami Beach.
According to an arrest report, officers saw Lu stomping on a marked-off sea turtle nest and using a wooden stake to poke it.
According to CBS Miami, police say the area was clearly marked off and had a double perimeter in addition to a warning sign.
Lu is looking at a felony charge of molesting marine turtles or eggs. Sea turtles are protected under federal and state law.
According to the Miami Herald, Lu was back in court on Tuesday after she was arrested AGAIN—this time after being nabbed at the airport for trying to go to Panama.
Lu was out on a $75,000 bond, and was due in court for that charge on Wednesday. CBS Miami reported that leaving the country was something she was prohibited from under the terms of her bond from the first arrest.
Her lawyer said that Lu had bought the ticket prior to her first arrest. Well—maybe she should have canceled her trip after the first visit to the slammer?
Lu is currently being held at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center with no bond.
Luckily, since Lu's first arrest, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission was called out to reestablish the safety perimeter around the turtle nest.
