That only looks like enough money to pay their rent. If the drugs were quality, they would have already been sold & there would be a lot more cash on that table. Seems like a somewhat useless bust in the world of drug dealing. Hope it was worth the effort.


Sheriff getting desperate for publicity or paper desperate for a story. Four or five hundred bucks. Lol. Spread out to look like a loooot of dough. Couple of ten spots n mostly twenties with only a Benjamin or two. HaHa. Ridiculous. A couple of ounces of meth: value $1k-$1,500. An OZ of heroin. Ooooooh. Who did y’all capture? El Chapo??! Lol. Get serious. This sort of rank small-townitis cracks me up. ROTGLMAO

The article even says the "evidence" was taped under a car. That's gonna be a tough one to make stick if it goes to trial (in my view). I am also LMMFAO as I read this big news!
