Braintree.  Apparently he doesn't have one.

Every ethnic group in the world has its own unique criminal enterprise, that has figured out how to master one particular crime for fun and profit.  For the middle easterners, it's cigarette smuggling.  Probably, because you can't exactly smuggle anything across the border, when everyone just happens to randomly select you for an additional search, every time you try to cross.

Nashiri was charged with two counts of possession of unstamped cigarettes and one count of speeding. He was arraigned by District Judge Ron Manescu and released after posting $20,000 bail.

You're sh*tting me, right?

Let's see, a pack of cigarettes in NY probably costs around $10 due to TAXES.  In Virginia, probably around $3.  The gubmint doesn't control, it creates opportunity to circumvent.

So what was illegal about what he did? I guess they are assuming that he was going to try to sell them without a license or something?

Last I checked buying something in a different state wasn't illegal.

OK, We'll let you off this time...
...after you smoke all 187,600 cigarettes.

Tax evasion is a serious crime.  The stamps are about the tax.

"...he was driving past the speed limit..."

"...appeared nervous..."

"...gave police conflicting and inconsistent statements..."

"...agreed to let police search the minivan..."


On so many levels, you're doing it wrong.

DrPainMD: "...he was driving past the speed limit..."


This ought to be rule #1 of smuggling - don't do anything to attract law enforcement attention...

"...appeared nervous..."

I can't blame him on this one, and think it's BS that he should be given a hard time due to nerves...

"...gave police conflicting and inconsistent statements..."

So? Why can't he do that? Police were more likely than not giving him conflicting and inconsistent questions...

"...agreed to let police search the minivan..."

On so many levels, you're doing it wrong.


Yes, on this one there's no argument. Never, NEVER allow police to search anything. Not when you have something to hide, and especially not when you don't have anything to hide. In fact, other than identifying yourself and any polite comments you may have to share (and these should be limited to things like "Good Morning" or "No, I don't smell anything like a dead hooker decomposing in my trunk, what an odd thing for you to suggest"), you just shouldn't talk to the police. Nothing good can come of it.
