Police: Man Arrested For Fake Crack

GASTONIA, N.C., Aug. 17 (UPI) — Police in North Carolina said they arrested a man who allegedly packaged rocks of soap to resemble crack cocaine.

Gastonia police said Victor White, 51, was confronted by an officer who saw him leave an open container of alcohol on a sidewalk early Tuesday and the officer noticed White had also dropped a plastic bag filled with white rocks, the Gaston Gazette, Gastonia, reported Tuesday.

“Mr. White told me that it was soap and not crack cocaine and that he had thrown it down when he saw me approaching,” Officer Stephen Rollins wrote in a warrant affidavit.

White was arrested on a charge of possession with intent to sell and deliver a counterfeit controlled substance. He was jailed in lieu of $2,500 bond.

    Some readers are in love with Big Government. How long will it be before people like Mr. White is in court with at least one addition charge based on the idea that he needs to pay taxes on what could have been a drug?
    If you mental giants are really in love with Big Government, you’d better start doing some research, as your role models will need all the help they can get to be able to send Washington an unending supply of easy money. They might consider fining people like you because you didn’t think of any new ways to get easy money into the hands of your masters.
