Local media in Illinois reported he was initially pulled over on Jan. 10 for talking on his cellphone while driving.

Now, every time I read about one of these stops, I wonder if it was DEA S.O.D related.

Alonjar: studebaker hoch: The cops remind you that it was "Using a cell phone while driving" that got him popped.

It was most certainly not:

"The bug we didn't place"
"The snitch we don't have"
"The phone tap we know nothing about"

This. Nobody gets pulled over for a cell phone violation and "Oh gee is that a million dollars worth of cocaine in your trunk?". The cops knew exactly what they were after.

It happens.  I have a relative who was a cop. She pulled over a man for speeding, 80 in a 55 zone.  He was obviously freaking out while they were talking.  She was suspicious and asked if she could search the car, he said sure.  She had him pop the trunk and found 20 kilos of coke, not even hidden, just sitting in the trunk.  She said if he had said no she would have let him drive away.  She didn't have enough for a warrant and there were no drug dogs working that night.

Sometimes stupidity is a crime.
