Pittsburgh man Jason Como, said he planted his marijuana seeds in two pots and placed them in the weeds behind his back yard, but he did not realize the property belonged to the Beloved Disciple Catholic Church, which reported the plants to police during the weekend. Como said, “I just figured this was one of my neighbor’s fields, or just a field. I don’t know.” Como was charged with manufacturing and cultivating a controlled substance.
An employee at a South Carolina convenience store was arrested after giving a customer a deal that was a little too sweet – by offering him an armload of ice cream in return for a customer’s cache of weed. Timothy Oren Jones, who lost his job as a result of the arrest, was charged with breach of trust after a surveillance camera captured the deal going down – while his accomplice, Edward Dean Burris, was charged with petty larceny for walking off with the frozen treats.
Jason Ray was pulled over for not having a registration sticker, and when questioned, admitted he didn’t have a valid driver’s license either. When he completed the trifecta by rolling down the window to let out a noticeable whiff of weed, the deputy asked if he had more in the car. Ray replied in the affirmative, but when the cop searched, he didn’t find a single blade of grass – prompting Ray to say, “Hope it didn’t fall out of my lap when I got out of the car by the levee. Can you go get my weed?” The cop complied, going directly to the spot Ray suggested and finding about an ounce of the stuff – enough to net a charge of intent to sell.
