What a bunch of Tards. If you have that much drugs and illgotten money in your car, you DONT do anything to get attention from the cops. You make sure you go the speed limit, use your turn signals, make sure all your lights are working, wear a seatbelt, dont use a cell phone, dont overtint your windows, make sure your exhaust/muffler is good,
The way it is

Ever think the police KNEW those two idiots were making a drug run? It's the officer's word against drug runners when it comes to a speeding charge.

I guess the lesson here is don't drive around with a halfa smash of coke and a bunch of cash on you. It amazes me for less effort these people could make that legally and keep it without all the drama. wtf? The world is getting desperate.

I have my Grandma take the load in her 15 year old Buick. She drives the speed limit and always gets through. The old biddy is shaking me down for more cash, maybe its time to burn her and find another driver.

This was just the cops way of getting around a warrant.. How many people get pulled over for speeding and have their car tossed ? Not many.. These guys were most definitely under survielance and all they had to do was 66 mph once it was known they were transporting coke.. Love how these stories get portrayed like the cops just stumbled onto a load of coke...

Seriously guys, use the USPS like everybody else does. They're the largest drug shipping firm on the planet.

A mailman was held up at gunpoint in Rochester recently, and the perps knew exactly what package they were looking for. Postal inspectors said they thought it was a meth shipment, and had no leads. Mail carrier was pretty freaked out on the news.

You know that concealed cameras now photograph you when you drop off a package at the post office. The picture goes with the tracking number.

You can tell them you dont consent to a search and make them get a warrant even if you have nothing to hide.

Actually they don't need a warrant. The first thing the police would have done if they refused a search would find probable cause. Maybe they smell something? Maybe they see something? Worst case is they get a police dog. Anyway it's shaken out if a cop wants to search your car they can always find a way. Best thing to do is not carry illegal drugs.
