Well, here’s a reminder that you don’t exactly want to be cocky in front of the people who have the power to put you in jail as a criminal.
It doesn’t take a genius to realize it’s a bad idea, but it’s not all too uncommon for drug dealers to boast about the fruits of their “labor” on social media – the cash, cars, and random luxury goods. Given countless stories out there of people who’ve lost their jobs over comments they made on social media they didn’t expect certain people to see, you’d think that people would wise up. I guess it’s no surprise that drug dealers aren’t among those who know better.
According to Bunker Buster News:
Police in an unidentified jurisdiction apparently decided to have a little fun at the expense of one of these criminals who found himself busted, according to Mad World News, and it’s sure to leave everyone who sees it smiling knowing there is some justice in the world.
While we don’t know many of the the details to this story, Mad World News said that police arrested a drug dealer and impounded his truck as a result of that arrest. A picture of that truck later appeared on Twitter showing that police actually did much more than that.
To act as a deterrent – and boast about the fruits of their own labor, police got creative with what they did to his truck. They turned it into police property, and put the words “This vehicle belonged to a drug dealer: He went to jail and we are driving his car” on the back.
Well, it’s clear who got the last laugh on that one.
Police in the UK had the same idea too. And lucky them – they managed to nab a Rolls Royce as a result.
Catching drug dealers is apparently more profitable than dealing drugs!
