Driving while stupid
Note to those who smoke pot (420, mary jane, marijuana, etc.), if you are going to drive around in a car that has no license plates, LEAVE YOUR STASH AT HOME! Along those same lines, if there is a warrant our for your arrest, don't drive a car without license plates. You're just asking to be pulled over. From the Asbury Park Press:
A missing license plate led to drug charges against a 20-year-old Neptune man, police said Tuesday.Good pot shouldn't be wasted on such stupid people.
Officer John Magner stopped a man driving a 1990 Toyota that did not have a license plate on Myrtle Avenue and Circuit Street about 1:45 p.m. Monday, police said.
After talking to the driver, Markies Wells, Magner found that a warrant had been issued for his arrest by the Red Bank Municipal Court. When Magner handcuffed and began searching Wells, the officer found 17 small bags filled with marijuana that were
stuffed into his waistband, police said.
Wells was charged with possession of marijuana, possession with the intent to distribute and possession with the intent to distribute within 500 feet of a public park. His bail was set at $115,000, and he was taken to the Monmouth County Jail, Freehold Township, and remained there Tuesday, police said.
