Car carrying 43 pounds of pot (plus cocaine) crashes into trooper's cruiser



"ORANGEBURG, South Carolina (AP) – It might have been one of the easiest drug busts in the history of the South Carolina Highway Patrol: A car with 43 pounds of marijuana crashed into a trooper’s cruiser, authorities said.

The easy bust happened after two patrolmen parked their cars in each lane of northbound Interstate 95 near Santee early Sunday morning following a series of wrecks that had tied up traffic, Highway Patrol Capt. Chris Williamson said.

A Chevrolet Malibu going about 70 mph hit one of the cruisers, causing minor injuries to the trooper behind the wheel, Williamson said.

Officers found two large duffel bags in the trunk with 43 pounds of marijuana in plastic bags, worth more than $150,000, Orangeburg County deputy Warren Pendry said.

They also found a few marijuana cigarettes and cocaine, Pendry said.

The 54-year-old driver from Daytona Beach Shores, Florida, was charged with driving under the influence, possession of cocaine and trafficking marijuana, authorities said."

:bigsmile: :cop: :bigsmile: This one will make it into the dumb crook lineup. :iagree:


Maybe they should ban smoking in vehicles :stuck_out_tongue:


My brother ran into the back of a city cop car right in front of the police station. Then he tried to get away and they caught him but he was drunk and not using pot or cocaine.


Jay Leno likes dumb criminals so he might have this one on his monday night headlines :bigsmile:


I’m willing to bet good money that that driver uses the word “dude” a lot! :iagree:


It was a real laughter here in this narconon treatment center I was in at that time. My pals in there only wished to be there just for a little cigarette, but they soon found out that they were in a treatment center. You know what, I think some of them got at the spot too look for some weed. :flower:


… und Tschüss :cop:
