|Comely Deputy Danielle Malone saw a bulge in the suspect’s pants. Bet that happens pretty often! Here, she holds two large compressed bricks of marijuana seized after a traffic stop. The bricks together weigh an estimated “6 to 8 pounds.”|
”Is that your billfold, or are you just glad to see me?” Two Florida men pulled over early Sunday morning on Cudjoe Key tried to pass off a big brick of marijuana as a wallet, according to police.
Deputy Danielle Malone claimed she saw a white Crown Victoria speeding and swerving around 3 a.m., according to Brian Hamacher of NBC Miami. When she pulled the vehicle over and approached the driver’s side, Deputy Malone claimed she saw a large black garbage bag on the passenger’s side of the floorboard.
By the time she got around to the passenger’s side to check it out, she said the bag was gone, but the passenger “suddenly had a large bulge in his pants leg.” I’ll go out on a limb here, and make a guess that sort of thing happens to the deputy on a regular basis.
Hey, maybe he really “liked” you, Deputy Danielle.
When the deputy asked the passenger, identified as 22-year-old Anthony Williams, what was in his pants (yeah, she really asked him that), he told her it was his wallet.
The deputy then frisked Williams, discovering that not only was his “wallet” a large brick of marijuana, but he had a second brick as well.
Both bricks together totaled between six and eight pounds, according to officers.
My bet is that the “final weight” of the weed will be six pounds, with the other two pounds “disappearing” into the pipes of pothead police.
A search of the vehicle also revealed a .45 caliber pistol in the trunk, as well as smaller amounts of marijuana throughout the car. Messy, messy!
Williams and the car’s driver, Julio Abella, were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.
