Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Man Sells Marijuana So He Could Go Eat at Taco Bell!
I feel for Taco Bell only for this: that their company (and, to a lesser extent, Del Taco) has been forever associated with drug users because drug users with the munchies love the high-calorie flavor explosion that is the entirety of the Taco Bell menu. How much do druggies like Taco Bell? One guy in Minnesota just got popped for selling pot so he could eat at the Bell.
WHAT THE HELL...
Southwest Minneapolis resident Michael Robert Funk, 23, has been charged with felony fifth-degree drug sales after police say he was observed making a drug transaction.
According to the criminal complaint, a Minneapolis police officer was working in plainclothes near 7th Street South on Nicollet Mall downtown when he saw a man, later identified as Funk, make a hand-to-hand transaction with another man. Police suspected that the transaction involved marijuana for money.
You'll have to read through the story to find the money line, where the suspect admits he was selling so he could eat. HILARIOUS!
