Genius Looking To Trade Marijuana For Heroin Makes A Very Bad Texting Mistake
Call me old-fashioned, but I’m a firm believer that a ‘drug deal’ should consist of a transaction in which drugs are exchanged for cash, and not drugs traded for other drugs. Furthermore, all talk of drug deals should usually be done in person. I believe we learned these basic principles from watching movies like Goodfellas, but it appears today’s crop of dope head smack fiends have forgotten the basic rules of the game.
Case in point, this dude from Pennsylvania who got himself arrested by accidentally texting a fucking PROSECUTOR that he wanted to trade marijuana for heroin (via NYPost):
EDWARDSVILLE, Pa. — Authorities say a man mistakenly sent a text message to a Pennsylvania prosecutor indicating that he wanted to trade marijuana for heroin.
Luzerne County prosecutors say Assistant District Attorney Jill Matthews received a text Nov. 2 using drug lingo that they called an “obvious text for a drug deal.” They say she later received a photo of a plastic bag containing a green substance on a scale.
Authorities said 29-year-old John Raimondo, of Plymouth, was arrested at the supposed drug swap outside a shopping center in Edwardsville, about 100 miles northwest of Philadelphia. via
The story doesn’t end there. John Raimondo is now wanted by police after failing to show up for a hearing tied to this drug arrest. So not only did he get himself arrested by accidentally texting the prosecutor but now he’s got a warrant out because he can’t even show up at the right place on time.
Strike 1: wanting heroin
Strike 2: accidentally texting a prosecutor that you want heroin
Strike 3: not taking responsibility for being a complete dumbass
I’m 99.99% certain a judge won’t be showing leniency once they eventually track this jabroni down.
