Guy steals pot from cops because ‘it smelled so good’In a criminal defense reminiscent of this week’s “her booty looked so good,” a Pennsylvania man claims he stole pot from a police station because “it smelled so good.”
According to police, 27-year-old David Allan Thompson was arrestred for stealing the drugs, which had been seized as evidence in the Charleroi Regional police department.
Thompson had gone to the police department to allegedly provide information about an open case. After being led into a patrol room to discuss his information further, Thompson saw the pot on a nearby counter and snatched it.
When the officer realized what happened, he asked Thompson where the pot went. Thompson turned the pot over and allegedly told the arresting officer, “I just couldn’t help myself. That bud smelled so good.”
Thompson was then incredulous that cops would be mad at him for stealing “a little bit of weed” given that he was attempting to help them with information on another case.
Thompson is scheduled to appear in court later this month on charges of theft, receiving stolen property, tampering with evidence, and possession of marijuana.
There seems to be an obvious answer to this new rash of crimes: Never tempt anyone with anything. If we eliminate everything enjoyable including but not limited to drugs, alcohol, money, big butts, pizza, sunshine, puppies, air, air combined with hydrogen to make water, more pizza, and babies, we can stop this Viral Crime Wave©.
