    Man who begged cop for ride home ends up in jail after a pat down yielded marijuana and an admission of a pot growing operation

    PALM BAY, Fla. -- A 26-year-old man who begged a policeman for a ride ended up in jail Sunday after a pat down search yielded marijuana and a candid admission that led the officer to several marijuana plants, according to Local 6 News partner Florida Today.

    Joseph Sutton, no address given, was charged with possession of cannabis and cultivation of a controlled substance after a uniformed police officer spotted him walking along Malabar Road at about 5 a.m.

    It was not known why he asked the patrol officer for a lift home, officials said.
    “Apparently he was desperate for a ride,” said Sgt. Tim Landers of the Palm Bay Police Department.

    “But before he could get in, the officer told him he had to pat him down. That’s when the officer found the marijuana on him.”

    Sutton, faced with a possession charge, then admitted to the officer that he got the marijuana from a wooded area near the intersection of Fogarty and Angora streets, Landers said.

    “They went out to his house and found six marijuana plants. They were just growing out in the woods,” Landers said.

    Sutton was arrested and taken to the Brevard County Jail in Sharpes.

    The marijuana was removed from the location after a thorough search, officials said.

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."

    This is what happens when you're a lazy little mofo and ask the police for a ride!
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    Hmmm. I got a ride from an officer once. Front seat, too. I had witnessed a hit and run on the freeway and chased after the suspect just long enough to get his plate number. Then I returned to the accident scene and yielded it to the LEO on scene. Unfortunately my car chose to run out of gas at that moment and I was in the center median. My fuel gauge was broken. I guess I must of looked safe to him. He proceeded to take me to a gas station where I was able to fill a gas can and he returned me to my car.


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

    Not a LEO

    Idiot!
    YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked, Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!

    I used to give anyone a ride until I picked up a guy who smelled so bad I needed a dead skunk to kill the stench. Now I'm a bit more careful to pre-interview

    Curious, if you're off duty in your personal car do you give him a ride? What differences are there in how you approach that scenario? What tips would you give a civi?
