Whenever you’re out and about with something not strictly legal in your pocket, paranoia starts creeping in and you’re as alert as a nightclub bouncer that sees someone having fun. Praying that you don’t run into a surprise drug squad and constantly tapping your pockets to make sure it’s still there, it’s not exactly a nice job, but someone’s got to do it.
Because, while running the gauntlet of drug detection is no one’s favourite hobby, it’s certainly better than getting caught. Just ask one fella at the recent Maroochydore Music and Visual Arts Festival, who was caught red handed with a bag full of goodies that only had his bloody name on it.
It’s almost like something out of that Rick and Morty bit ‘Quick Mysteries’.
The story goes that on August 26th, police from the Wide Bay and Burnett Tactical Crime Squad were performing their duties at the Maroochydore Music Festival, when a 21-year-old Dalby bloke was detained due to a positive reaction from a drug detection dog.
Upon further inspection, police whipped out a bag that looked like it belonged in a packed lunch from Mum. Sprawled across the front of the bag is old mate’s name, phone number and explicit information about what drugs inside. I mean come on, if you’re going to slap
I mean come on, if you’re going to slap your name and number on their at least say it’s your festival supply of Himalayan pink rock salt, or ya know, anything that’s not extremely illegal.
The man in question will appear in the Maroochydore Magistrates Court on September 29 in relation to possessing a dangerous drug.
Have fun getting out of that one.
