Officer, Help Me Find My Pot
An Illinois man made three mistakes earlier this month, according to the St. Clair County sheriff's office.
Mistake No. 1 was calling 911 about a robbery while drunk. Mistake No. 2 was telling deputies the purloined property happened to be several marijuana plants. Mistake No. 3 was not checking to make sure the plants were really gone in the first place.
Sheriff's Lt. Steve Johnson and Deputy Al Hake were dispatched to Anthony R. Martin's home outside Belleville on Sept. 2, reports the Belleville News-Democrat.
Martin, who admitted having had a few drinks, told the officers the dastardly woman who lived next door had stolen his pot plants, and then led the lawmen to where he said they used to be.
Sadly for him, the plants were, as Johnson put it, "still there, growing in the pots."
Martin, upset, said "he was sure his neighbor had taken his plants," according to Johnson. Martin then insisted someone must have put them back.
Having recovered the property, and the evidence, the officers promptly placed Martin, 52, under arrest for possession and cultivation of marijuana, as well as for two outstanding misdemeanor warrants.
He spent the night in the St. Clair County Jail (search) before posting bail the next day.
