An Ohio man faces up to 10 years in prison and up to a $20,000 fine after law enforcement officers found 4.5 pounds of marijuana-laced Rice Krispie treats during a traffic crash investigation.
Patrick Altier, 22, of Boardman, Ohio, was charged with possession and trafficking of marijuana, both third-degree felonies, after Ohio State Highway Patrol troops detected a “strong odor of marijuana” on him during the crash investigation in Boardman Township, Mahoning County, on August 25.
During a “probable cause” search of Altier’s vehicle, based on the pot smell, troopers found individually wrapped Rice Krispie-like treats (the photo actually looks like it could be some Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles, and trust me, I’m an expert in such matters).
Further investigation revealed that the treats were “laced with a liquid form of marijuana,” reports Sean Rowe of ABC 6 On Your Side, which probably means they contained cannabutter.
Altier was also charged operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs.
