Drug bust

CARRIED OVER FROM DWEB. I THOUGHT SOME FOLKS HERE MIGHT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE INFORMATION THAT CAN HELP STOP THIS ACTIVITY.

well guys, I did it. The largest narcotics seizure ever in Central Virginia. I received a tip from a credible source that a large shipment of drugs was headed south on my highway. You see there are these "importers" that are bringing in trucks called "defenders", I personnally have never heard of them, but I don't get out much either. So these "defenders" are brought in from over sea's under the notion that they are sought after vehicles that people will pay ridiculous amounts of money to own. Well as it turns out they are made of pure compressed opium. Yep, that's right, i'm talking about the whole truck, close to 6 tons of dope between the two. These "importers" are actually able to make these trucks drive as to fool customs agents.

The guy I busted today insists his name is Doug, but everything we have so far is telling us he is the infamous Carlos the Jackel. He is currently being waterboarded so that we might be able to uncover the rest of this network of "importers" and stop their illicit trade. So if you have any part in this profession then I suggest you stop now because we are coming for you.

I've been told the best defenders imported out of the U.K. come fro the "southern" parts of England.
That explains alot to me now!

Opium makes you sleepy. Defenders are more like crack.

Hope my crane wasn't confiscated.

So *THAT* is why my RRC was searched for an hour and half by four cops and drug-dog on the side of the road in Kansas!! Just trying to get from Denver to Maine and they thought maybe I was one of them.

Ha!

Well definately a very interesting way to meet a fellow board member. We had actually met @ an event a while back but not really spoken. Yeah I'm on the 29/250 bypass around Charlottesville Va. and see a county mounty pull up beside me and eye ball the left sde of the truck. He pulls off in front of me with his yellow lights lit.....I pass by thinking wtf ? He immediately drops behind me and lights up the blues so I pull over- still thinking wtf. The officer approached the right side door and introduced himself, we sat on the side of the road admiring the rust free lhd v8 110 from S. Spain a dealer just sent me to sell on consignment. Good to see you again Trevor and feel free to pull me over anytime- as long as you leave the ticket book on your seat.
Doug

By the way- Trevors patrol car number is 128. Ford Police Interceptor-hence his screen name Quick128

Nah. Live rover porn peep show. All the 300 tdi 130, and rust free lhd v8 110 from Spain he could soak up. Trevor looks like he could run a marathon with 5 mins notice-doesn't look like a donut eater.

I'm thinking when law dog comes to your drivers window it won't be to meet you and chat, and your accent is just going to piss them off ! Bring large amounts of our money to buy your way out of problems-ours, not that worthless stuff with the ugly lady's pictures all over it.

LOL- Charlottesville is pretty much where 29 starts threading through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Had to shift all the way down to 2nd on a couple of the uphill grades-got up to 75mph on the downhills.
