|You do know the best way to pass the time on the inside, don’t you?|
Folks try to smuggle pot into jail all the time. Sometimes they make it (I’ve gotten high more than once in L.A. County Jail). But when they get caught, it’s usually girlfriends or best buddies, rarely lawyers muling dank into the joint.
The words “damn good lawyer” come to mind, but let’s not jump to conclusions. The Douglas County, Neb., Sheriff’s Office hasn’t arrested anyone yet, according to KPTM Omaha, but charges against the lawyer could be forthcoming.
“The jail staff were suspicious of this individual, they were watching for this person and when they arrived, they knew to be vigilant and they did examine this particular visitor’s packages,” said Chief Deputy Marty Bilek. “In this case, a file folder, and that’s how they found the narcotics.”
Corrections workers confiscated 43 grams of pot, according to Bilek. That’s just over an ounce and a half.
KPTM says the sheriff’s office is so far only calling the suspect a “frequent jail visitor,” but “other sources” confirm he is an Omaha attorney.
