Anson Police Department officers say they took about $36,000 worth of marijuana off the streets Thursday during a routine traffic stop.
Chase Beaulieu, 19, and Logan Mac Wade, 21 — both from California — were charged with one count each of being in possession of over five pounds of marijuana in a drug-free zone. Custody records as of Thursday afternoon showed the pair were being held at the Jones County Jail in lieu of a $50,000 bond each.
Chief David Moore said an officer on patrol in the 800 block of Commercial Avenue pulled over a vehicle that had "its bright lights on."
"They failed to dim their headlights and we pulled them over," he said. "This led to the recovery of 12 pounds of marijuana."
Moore said the traffic stop occurred within a 1,000 of a school. The men told police that they were traveling south through Anson and were on their way to Clyde, he said.
If you are gonna drive through these small towns, please take the time to observe ALL of the safe driving laws or bring bail money with you...when you hit the city limit sign of ANY small town, dim your damn lights! Also, make sure your car is legal, check your lights every evening at dusk and go home or get a room if they are not ALL working correctly including blinkers, check tire pressures before you leave, keep it full of gas, make sure the registration is in the glove box as well as the paid up insurance papers and you drivers license. No smoking or drinking in the car. Clean the car and floorboards before you leave. Drive within a couple of mph of the posted speed limit. Expect cops to run up on your ass to try and get you to fade, weave, or run and just drive right after they do it. If it gets too bad, pull into a convenience store if possible, go in and piss, buy some coffee or an energy drink - even if you don't drink it, fuck around putting shit in your coffee and whatnot until they leave. Then check the lights again and get back in the car and drive straight out of town observing all laws. Many busts in TX happen because of non working license plate lights or such shit.
And chances are that this may not have been happenstance! Bringing a load of $3k dro into a town of 1000 people and likely flashing around a lot of cash might have pissed someone off and they called crimestoppers. Abilene is full of snitches and Clyde is worse...
I doubtfully this pisshole was were they we're headed.....but that IS a very good price per unit.....I can only think of a couple of places to get close to that......and even their it would be a good price.
once you vert.......you never revert....
I grow and am motivated by the pure genius of Heath Robinson!
