Friday 9/7

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.
