Moron from Greenville Caught with 100 Pounds of Pot

From the Lilburn-Mountain Park Patch:

Gwinnett Police have arrested a South Carolina man after a Monday traffic stop uncovered approximately 100 pounds of marijuana.

According to a media release issued Thursday afternoon, Tyrone Alexander, 33, of Greenville, S.C., was charged with trafficking in marijuana, providing false documents and driving on a suspended license. Alexander is being held at the Gwinnett County Jail without bond.

Police say Alexander was pulled over on I-85 near Hamilton Hill Road in unincorporated Buford for a tag light violation around 10:30 p.m. Monday night. According to the media release, Alexander gave police an inconsistent story about where he was headed, and provided a false driver’s license.

The officer found probable cause to search the vehicle with a trained narcotics K-9 unit. The K-9 search indicated an odor of drugs. Police found two black trash bags containing five bricks of marijuana in the trunk. The drugs were seized and placed into evidence.

Moron. But of course pot runners are the bottom of the barrel in terms of drug mules. Most are smokers and I’ve heard of a few cases where they were paid in product.

I like how the report claims that the cops needed a K-9 unit to figure out that someone had 100 pounds of marijuana in trash bags. I’m figuring that the K-9 was called after the original responder smelled the 100 pounds of pot. Another reason pot smokers make lousy drug mules is because they’re so used to the smell they don’t know when they reek of it.

Anyway sorry Greenville pot smokers – your connection blew it.
