Would You Go To Court To Pay A Ticket With Cocaine On You?
It's great that this dude went to the courthouse to pay a traffic ticket. But to go into the courthouse with cocaine, a syringe, and drug paraphernalia? And to have more goodies in your car? As reported by the Galveston County Daily News:
When the 30-year-old Santa Fe man pulled up to the court, which is next door to the police station, a Santa Fe police officer recognized him from a drug bust in February, Santa Fe Sgt. Eric Bruss said.Uh-oh.
“The officer also knew (he) had a suspended driver’s license,” Bruss said.
The officer went into the courtroom to arrest the man and charge him with driving with a suspended license.
During a search after arresting the man, police said they found a syringe, a bag with less than a gram of cocaine and some drug paraphernalia, Bruss said.Doh!
A search of the man’s car uncovered a scale and materials often connected to drug sales and what police believe was a drug pipe.Doh! The Juice does not know if they went to his house, but has some idea what they might find there. And if the above wasn't bad enough ...
Ryan Dan Wheeler, who is still facing methamphetamine possession charges from a bust three months ago, was charged with possession of a controlled substance and was being held in the county jail on $70,000 bond.Does anyone else find it odd that this particular gent went to court to pay a traffic ticket? Here's the source.
