In the art of drug smuggling, there has always been some level of controversy surrounding what the best methods are for sneaking MJ into the desired location: should it be hidden or in plain sight? For most, the answer is almost always to keep it concealed, with everyone from the cartels to small-time drug aficionados employing a multitude of creative stash tactics to ensure there is no momentary lapse in the feel-goods once they reach their destination.
Unfortunately, law enforcement has become shocking effective at detecting the bizarre covers that people use to transport drugs. Just ask 22-year old New York resident Gregory Bolognese, who was busted earlier this week at the Plattsburgh Greyhound bus station after authorities found he had a hefty stash of drugs stuffed in a toy lion wearing a black D.A.R.E t-shirt.
While it is not known exactly what led New York state police to shakedown Bolognese in the middle of the bus station and rip his D.A.R.E. lion to shreds in a wild-eyed search for illegal drugs, reports from WPTZ indicates they discovered two grams of weed, nearly a gram of cocaine, and a couple strips of LSD tucked inside. Although police are still not entirely sure why Bolognese needed this wicked collection of high-powered substances for his travels, we are convinced the legendary Hunter S. Thompson inspired his actions:
“We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers . . . and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls . . . Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.” – Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Nevertheless, Bolognese was arrested and transported to the Clinton County Jail, where he was slapped with a myriad of drug charges and is currently being held on a $500 cash bond.
For future reference, we would advise not using anything branded with anti-drug messages to disguise your smuggling operations. Former law enforcement sources have confirmed that many police agencies consider these types of brands to be reasonable suspicion.
