Well, what do we have here? It’s none other than Edward Busbee from Pensacola, the latest addition to the infamous “Florida Man” club. The reason? He was caught with meth and drug paraphernalia tucked away inside a M&M minis container, which, in case you didn’t know, is typically used to hold candy. I mean, talk about thinking outside the box!
According to WKRG, here’s what went down: A deputy spotted a green Ford Ranger parked by a dumpster at a Winn Dixie on Hwy. 98 and Blue Angel Parkway. When questioned, Edward and his companion claimed they were just munching on sandwiches before heading home. What they didn’t mention was that their sandwiches were served with a side of meth.
But the jig was up for Edward. Upon checking his driver’s license, the deputy discovered an active warrant for his arrest. Busted! Edward was immediately taken into custody. While in the patrol car, he owned up to having a rolled-up piece of plastic in his sock. Unfortunately for him, it tested positive for meth.
Florida Man Busted:
If you thought that was the end of the story, think again! Another deputy arrived at the scene, and a K9 unit conducted a search of the car. The dog led them to the M&M minis container. Looks like Edward will have to come up with a new hiding spot for his illegal goodies.
Now, Edward’s court date is set for May 19th, and we can only imagine how the judge will react when hearing about the M&M minis container. I mean, it’s not every day you hear about someone using a candy container to store their drugs.
The moral of the story here is that if you’re going to engage in illegal activities, at least have the decency to use a more discreet container. Or better yet, don’t engage in illegal activities at all. But for those who insist on living on the edge, a candy container is probably not the best option.
Let’s just hope that Edward has learned his lesson and will think twice before using candy as a cover-up for his next illicit activity. And as for the rest of us, let’s hope that we never find ourselves in a situation like Edward’s, because let’s face it, being a member of the “Florida Man” club is not exactly something to be proud of.
