An Orlando man was recently pulled over and arrested for possession of crystal meth due to an officer observing flakes of a white substance on the floor of his vehicle.
From Miami Herald:
“I recognized through my 11 years of training and experience as a law enforcement officer the substance to be some sort of narcotic,” the officer wrote in her report.
The driver let her search the car, and she found more chunks, which two roadside tests showed were crystal methamphetamine.
Daniel Rushing was arrested, charged with possession with a weapon, strip-searched and jailed in December.
The 64-year-old Orlando man told officers he’d never done drugs in his life, and the crumbs were from his Krispy Kreme doughnut.
Weeks later, a state crime lab proved him right.
I’m calling BS on the crime lab here. That guy’s story of, “It was just a donut!” might be true, but what if the donut itself was glazed with meth? That’s a pretty convenient detail for the crime lab to ignore, and leads me to think that they stand to make good money from Big Donut if they keep their mouths shut and comply. I’m speaking out about this because I’m not afraid of Krispy Kreme, whether I die by their assassins or by eating their products on a regular basis. However, a few coupons for a free dozen and I can forget all about this. Your choice, Krispy Kreme..
