Man Tells Cops Someone Stole His Marijuana

DUBLIN, Ga. (AP) -- A school bus driver who reported an apparent burglary at his home, also told police someone took his marijuana.

John Randolph, 29, made the call Monday, according to a Dublin police department report. When officers arrived, Randolph said a thief took four "dime bags" of marijuana, along with a .22-caliber pistol, a gold necklace and $30 in change.

Officer Michael Milton reported that he asked Randolph about the marijuana again to make sure he heard him correctly.

The bus driver repeated what he said and then showed Milton a small box on a bedroom dresser where he said he kept the marijuana.

Randolph told the officer he was "saving the marijuana to smoke when school was out," according to the police report.

Dublin police Capt. Zeke Hobbs said Randolph was not charged with a crime. No one was arrested in the burglary.

Dublin schools operations director Sam Barrs, who oversees the bus system, said Wednesday he was investigating the incident.

"We are not going to condone this at all, by any means," he said.

Randolph, who is not an employee with the school system, works for McLendon & Sons Bus Service. Harold McLendon, one of the family owners, said he also was checking into it.

Detective Sgt. Tommy Cobb, who also went to Randolph's home, said it was the first time he ever heard of anyone reporting a marijuana theft.

"I asked him, 'Why are you telling us you had marijuana?' " Cobb said. "He said he was always told to tell the truth."

Randolph declined to comment.

Life imitates the Simpsons.

One law class I took, the professor recounted a story about how this dope dealer in Soldotna was busted, but the cops broke procedure and he was found not guilty at trial.

The dealer had chutzpah.  Under the law, his property had to be returned to him, in this case, several pounds of dope. The judge was flabbergasted, because he was right.  I dont think he got the dope though.
