Weed-induced paranoia of the day: Traffickers get high and call cops to turn themselves in, thinking they are being followed
Thursday, January 21, 2016
While taking 20 pounds of marijuana over state borders, two drug dealers under the influence stopped and called the police in Rexburg, Idaho, to turn themselves, in an attempt to end their pursuit by "cops driving around in a bunch of civilian cars not wanting to pick us up."
Leland Ayala-Doliente, 22, and Holland Sward, 23, were traveling from Las Vegas to Bozeman, Montana, with some 20 pounds of marijuana. Court documents show the men were using marijuana during their trip and when they entered Idaho, they felt they were being followed by undercover police officers.East Idaho News | via
Rexburg Police Cpt. Randy Lewis told EastIdahoNews.com that at the time they weren’t being followed by anyone.
Once they reached Rexburg, the pair exited U.S. Highway 20, parked their car and called 911. They said they just wanted the police to stop following them.
When police officers arrived, they say both men had their hands behind their heads. Court documents show Sward said to an officer, “We got caught and we’re surrendering.”
