Man Charged After Probation Officer Finds Pot In Court Paperwork



‚ÄčA Pennsylvania man allegedly wrapped a bag of marijuana in his court paperwork and stuck it in his pocket before going to visit his probation officer last week.

Carlisle police said pot was discovered when the probation officer patted down Thomas E. Borders, 22, of Carlisle, Pa., reports Chris A. Courogen of The Patriot-News.
One would think that court paperwork wouldn’t rank highly on a list of where to keep your stash, but oh well.
The paperwork within which the marijuana was wrapped was a letter outlining the terms and conditions of Borders’s probation, police said.

Borders had been free on $5,000 bail while awaiting trial on robbery and assault charges filed last month by Carlisle police. He pleaded guilty last year to receiving stolen property and fradulent use or removal of license plate.
Police said Borders was returned to Cumberland County Prison for a parole violation. He will be charged with possession of marijuana.
