Officers Find Pot Hidden In Cereal Boxes
I don’t think this is what they meant by “part of a complete breakfast’. Law enforcement officials in St. Tammany Parish made a particularly unusual drug bust after a routine traffic stop on Tuesday.
Officials near Slidell noticed a vehicle with California license plates traveling above the posted speed on I-12. Officers engaged the car and the driver pulled over. The officers began to question the driver, 23-year-old Donal Roots-Scott of Sacramento, California. It was during this initial interrogation that Roots-Scott admitted he was driving on a suspended license and that he had marijuana in his vehicle.
When St. Tammany Sheriff’s deputies searched the car they found two pounds of pot. It was hidden inside cereal boxes. One was a Cap’n Crunch with Crunch Berries box, the other was a Honey Nut Cheerios box. The man told authorities he was bringing the high-grade marijuana to Mississippi for distribution.
After this admission and search, Roots-Scott was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on charges of possession with intent to distribute marijuana; expired driver’s license; and speeding.
