If I were ever running some serious weight in drugs, you know what I’d do? Make sure that was the ONLY law I was breaking. My taillights would be working on point. My turn signals would be prompt if not a tad too early. I would do a solid two miles per hour below the speed limit. I would drive in the right lane the entire time. To me, these are common sense rules of drug running, however, apparently this real life drug runner had never heard of them.
Via Fox 61:
WHITE MARSH, Md. — Maryland State Police have arrested a Connecticut man after they say they found 124 pounds of marijuana in his car.
Local news organizations report that 67-year-old John Paul Demorest was arrested on drug possession and drug kingpin charges.
The incident began Saturday after state police pulled over Demorest on Interstate 95 near White Marsh due to speeding. The trooper who pulled him over called for a K-9 unit to inspect the car after noticing indications of criminal activity.
Afterward, the K-9 alerted officials to the presence of drugs. Police found five loaded trash bags containing marijuana valued at $620,000.
Demorest is being held at a Baltimore County jail on a $1 million bond. Online records do not list an attorney.
Also, shame on this dude for not only not knowing the basic credos of drug traffic, but for having never seen Pulp Fiction. As The Wolf says in Pulp Fiction:
“About the car, is there anything I need to know? Does it stall, does it make a lot of noise, does it smoke, is there gas in it, anything? Don’t get me out on the road and I find out the brake lights don’t work.”
