corq: It's not the folding that was illegal, subby; it was the crack they also foundplanted.

However, the 'folding' will be used to demonstrate likely intent-to-distribute.

Fold what you like, but try not to get caught with the rock and these nasty things are less likely to happen.


I mean I could be wrong, but they "found crack in his ashtray"?  Seems a bit small and a bit convenient.

Uh huh. If a rich white kid is caught with an ounce of cocaine and $10K "folded" in his Ferrari, I'm sure that will be used to demonstrate intent.

If sorting bills is intent to commit a crime, then *having* bills is at least as much an indication of intent.

But no matter what, keep us safe, keep us safe, safe, keep us safe from drug dealers.

Safe.


If a rich white kid has an ounce of coke, he's way up the creek.

abhorrent1: Is this like when they pull someone over whose on their way to go buy a car or something with cash, and they maybe have $5-$10K in cash on them, they seize it as "potential" drug proceeds? Because anyone carrying a lot of cash must be into drugs, right?


Car dealerships (at least in Ohio) will not take more than $10,000 cash for car purchases.

The safe way to go is the "jock wad".  Just wad up all your cash like a used tissue and cram into your underwear.  The cops would never be able to call that intent, and it makes them use those blue rubber gloves.

His question is valid. Just having crack doesn't automatically bring on intent to distribute. There is a specific amount of crack you have to have to be charged with that over just possession, or have other contributing factors. Having a large sum of money folded in a particular way is one of those contributing factors that they will use to raise drug charges from a possession to an intent to deliver when the amount of drugs you are caught with doesn't meet the minimum threshold for an intent to deliver charge by themselves.

Also cops have been known to use this bullshiat as probable cause to search a vehicle or house.

FTA:
According to the report, the deputy stopped Merriel's vehicle for an inoperative tail light. He recognized Merriel from past narcotics-related investigations.
During the stop, a K9 unit alerted to the presence of narcotics in Merriel's vehicle. It was searched and deputies found crack cocaine in the ashtray. They also found large sums of money in both the vehicle and Merriel's wallet, arranged in "street folds," a way that drug dealers maintain separate denominations.

Okay that last piece was dumb, but the suspect was not a random stop. Really some people this thread are going out of their way to make this suspect seem like some angel minding his own business when he was stopped when in truth the cops recognized him from his involvement in previous investigations.

The cop may have made s stupid comment, but according to the article the suspect wasn't charged with distribution, just possession.

To be fair, an ounce of coke is a pretty substantial amount.

Amateur.

I sort my bills by denomination, then serial number in reverse order, same side up and facing the same direction, and with all folds and creases removed.

Why? The serial number is a handy way to tell me when I'm about to run out of a particular denomination without having to rifle through my billfold. The folds and creases thing is for the vending machines at work that despise all humans.

I think he is referring to the old mandatory sentencing guidelines where there wasn't any mandatory sentencing for powdered cocaine, but for crack there was, and a very small amount of crack compared to an ounce of cocaine would get you 10 or 15 years mandatory.

That ranks right up there with "packaged to distribute" and "denominations used by drug dealers".

A guy buys a few bindles of cocaine and gets charged with sales because it's packaged for sale.  It's packaged for sale because it was just sold.  It doesn't magically consolidate itself into a non-sales-type container at the point of sale.  And "You've got fives, tens, and twenties.  Those are the denominations used by drug dealers."  Yeah.  And every other person who carries cash.

edmo: I can't find a definition of "street folding" on the internet even. Sounds like more made up cop stuff.


Same here. Aside the TFA, most Google links are about the musician Ben Folds.

Is Ben Folds a drug dealer?

Wolfman Johnny: Keep the $1 bill flat and unfolded.Fold the $5 bill in half crosswise (with the short ends together).Fold the $10 bill in half lengthwise (with the long sides together).Fold the $20 bill like a $10 bill lengthwise, and then in half again crosswise, like the $5 bill:
Surely it's not this simple. Must be a way to grab money from your wallet without taking your eyes off the junkie.


How do you know this (obviously not from Google!)? Are you a drug dealer?

Kibbler: loser0: (reads article)

I assume it's still legal if you're white, right?

I think, to tell the truth,  that the idea here is, "Here's a young black man who went to the mental effort of sorting pieces of paper that had numbers on them, and nobody would believe he did that unless he had some kind of criminal intent in mind.  If he didn't, he'd just pull crumpled bills out of his pocket to buy a 40 and a rock, am I right?"

Show me an article where the cops arrest a white guy and cite his money being sorted as evidence of...anything.

"Did we mention that this young black man also had a cell phone?  A CELL PHONE, ladies and gentlemen of the jury!"


Every article about drug arrests ever mentions cash taken.
