A 59 year old breeder from Ingle Farm, SA has been caught with more than 30kg (66lb) of mary jane, just outside of Truro. The kicker? He brought his 12 year old son along for the ride. The drug dealer’s 4WD had been modified with a false fuel tank, which is where the pot had been stored. Police pulled him over at 3.30am, found the booty and nabbed him. The male breeder was part of a larger drug syndicate in the area that also manufactured meth and ingredients to make meth. The breeder has since been charged with trafficking a large commercial quantity of a controlled drug, and manufacturing a controlled drug after the police found a meth lab at Penfield Gardens last year.
“I think that’s very poor form on the part of any parent to expose their child to drug trafficking.” said the detective in charge of the investigation. “We will make the necessary notifications to other government departments . . . to follow up whether the parents are suitable for children.”
I know times are tough and it’s tempting to get involved in illegal activities such as selling drugs to get a bit of extra dosh to feed your kids or keep a roof over their heads. But with illegal activity, there are people who don’t play by the rules, not even the unspoken ones in the crime world. Dealing drugs brings many dangers to kids, such as if they accidentally eat them or rival dealers come by and try to take out the competition. This idiot could have been shot by a rival and his son left to fend for himself. When you have kids, you have to put that all behind you. It’s not all about you anymore.
