A Texas police officer discovered, during a traffic stop, drugs in the car. But they were hidden very well. The drugs were disguised as candy.
It may seem like fake news but it's true. Drugs were found disguised in candies. Indeed, the drugs were not disguised too well, because the McKinney police managed to find the likes quickly due to a traffic stop.
It happened on Tuesday, April 20 in McKinney, Texas. A traffic stop turned into a drug investigation.
McKinney is a city in and the county seat of Collin County, Texas, United States. It is the second-largest city in Collin County, after Plano.
The McKinney Police Department affirmed that one of their officers confiscated the items that resembled Skittles and Pez candies.
The ‘Skittles’ actually contain THC and police say the ‘Pez’ was really ecstasy.
The McKinney Police posted the following message on Twitter about this event, on April 21:
"Ofc. Brydges made a traffic stop last night that resulted in getting this stuff off the streets of McKinney. Take a look: Those aren’t the real candy. They contain THC, and that is a felony. The pills in the clear bag that look like Pez? Ecstasy tabs. Great work by Ofc. Brydges!"
On their Facebook page, the McKinney Police Department posted the following message, on April 21:
"UPDATE: This is less of a post about a "big drug bust", and more of a public service to show parents that this stuff is out there. Officer Brydges made a traffic stop last night that resulted in getting this stuff off the streets of McKinney. Take a look: Those aren’t the real candy. They contain THC, and that is a felony here in Texas. The pills in the clear bag that look like Pez? Those are actually Ecstasy tablets. Great work by Ofc. Brydges!"
These are some of the photos of the drugs disguised as candy that the McKinney Police Department posted on Twitter:
It's not the first time the McKinney Police found drugs in this city.
In 2019, According to the Collin County Sheriff's Office, one of eight participating agencies, a North Texas Sheriff's Interdiction Unit seized 22 pounds of methamphetamine during a traffic stop in McKinney last night.
This happened in September 2019 on U.S. Highway 75 in McKinney, Texas.
The North Texas Sheriffs Criminal Interdiction Unit is composed of eight North Texas Sheriffs — Collin County Sheriff Jim Skinner, Grayson County Sheriff Tom Watt, Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks, Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler, Rockwall County Harold Eavenson, Smith County Sheriff Larry Smith, Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn and Wise County Sheriff Lane Akin.
People are becoming more and more creative and trying to hide drugs in various forms. But the police officers are always one step ahead of them and discover those who commit such crimes.
Drug possession is the crime of having one or more illegal drugs in one's possession, either for personal use, distribution, sale, or otherwise. Illegal drugs fall into different categories and sentences vary depending on the amount, type of drug, circumstances, and jurisdiction. A person has possession of drugs if they have actual physical control of the drugs (they have the drugs in their hands) or if the drugs are on that person. A person also has possession of drugs if they have the power and intent to control their disposition and use.
They tried to commit illegalities, hiding drugs under the company of sweets, but McKinney Police managed to find the drugs.
This was another success of the McKinney Police. The police did a good job, managing to find drugs disguised and hidden very well.
