Cops: Pot Dealers Busted Near Elementary School Had Stash Inside Scooby-Doo Lunchbox
Two South Carolina men were arrested near an elementary school after cops found their drug stash hidden inside a Scooby-Doo lunchbox, police report.
Brittany Robinson, 26, and Trenton Simmons, 20, were nabbed Monday afternoon about 50 feet from Northside Elementary School in Rock Hill, a city 25 miles south of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Pictured at right, Robinson (left) and Simmons were both jailed on two narcotics charges--possession of pot with intent to distribute and possession of pot near a school.
Responding to a report of two men using drugs behind a residence, Rock Hill Police Department officers encountered Robinson and Simmons, who reportedly admitted that the pair had been smoking pot. A subsequent search of the area turned up the Scooby-Doo lunchbox, which was wrapped in cellophane and found inside a grocery bag.
The plastic lunchbox--of which both men denied ownership--contained more than four ounces of marijuana, 10 glass pot pipes, and a bag with "3 glass pipes with hash residue within it." Cops noted that Simmons wept and became “weak in the knees” when police located the orange lunchbox, which is seen in the above evidence photo.
