Today's tip for would-be criminals -- make sure your car is in working order:

At around 7:20 Tuesday evening, a trooper pulled over a car driven by 23-year old Halie Long going southbound at the 109 mile marker for having a burned out headlight.  The trooper noticed the smell of burned marijuana coming from the car.  Long didn't have a driver's license and was taken to the patrol car.  An inspection of Long's car turned up a duffel bag with about 17 pounds of marijuana inside.

Betcha *IF* the FWPD would do likewise in MY neighborhood (with ALL the cars that do NOT have proper lighting...which are too many)...they'd find a LOT more of "that stuff", but we'd have some NAACP spokeman pulling the "driving while black" card yet again.

It should be noted that it was in fact an FWPD officer that made this discovery on a Trooper's traffic stop at which he was assisting.

Ofc. Keith Adair of the FWPD was the one that, in the course of performing a legal search of the vehicle, discovered the pot in the trunk.

we're winning the "war on drugs"! 17 pounds of marijuana. so hoosiers evidently demand the supply.
lets random drug all the cops, lawyers, judges, and politicians in allen county- and expose the hypocrites.
so while the police were saving a bunch of dope smokers from themselves, how many murders, rapes, baby rapers, and white collar criminals were taken off the street.
arrest J and silent bob, but let the john gottis, and al capones walk free? not to mention the enrons, worldcoms, etc. ceos who still walk free? arrest the little fish, but let the whales alone? justice in America for you..
