Package labeled 'Bag Full of Drugs' leads to Florida arrests

MIAMI, Fla. – Two men charged with drug trafficking could have done a better job hiding their wares than using a package labeled “Bag Full of Drugs,” Florida authorities said.

Ian Simmons and Joshua Reinhardt, both 34, were pulled over in Santa Rosa County on Saturday after a trooper clocked them going 95 mph (153 kph) on Interstate 10 on the state’s Panhandle, according to a Florida Highway Patrol arrest report.

The trooper determined that Reinhardt was the subject of an active felony warrant for violation of probation in Orange County. He requested backup.

A Santa Rosa County Sheriff's deputy arrived to assist, and a K-9 alerted to the presence of contraband in the vehicle, the arrest report said. Authorities found approximately 75 grams of methamphetamine, 1.36 kilograms of the date-rape drug GHB, 1 gram of cocaine, 3.6 grams of fentanyl, 15 MDMA tablets and drug paraphernalia.

Both men were taken into custody and taken to jail. They are charged with trafficking in methamphetamine and GHB, three counts of possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

“Note to self- do not traffic your illegal narcotics in bags labeled ‘Bag Full Of Drugs,’" deputies wrote on Facebook. "Our K-9’s can read.”

Jail records did not say whether the men had attorneys who could comment.

Well, I don't think the bag was the big issue. They worded that wrong.. It's a simple pull-over, and the K9 found drugs...

I never get this. When ever you see the police programs in any country, the drugs are always found, but through their own doing.

 

I mean, if you have a load of drugs on you, then wouldn't you want to be driving normally so as not to draw attention to yourself? They where clocked speeding, which is why they were pulled over to begin with. They may have got away with it had they been driving normally.

 

I guess that's why some people become drug dealers, as they don't have a brain cell to do anything else?

Go watch Border Force on Discovery, the lengths the Mexican Cartel's go to in hiding their drugs is staggering. Even wrapping the wheels in bundles, then re-fitting the tires. They even fit compartments into fuel cells!

Which is fair enough. Thats actually using a bit of initative, but in most cases (possibly the UK more lol), most of these are caught because the dealer is driving reckless!
