One 19-year old dude who unwittingly thought he could pull off a Three Wise Men all by himself proved to be a very unwise man when he was busted with frankincense, myrrh and
gold weed on Monday.
Police in Myrtle Beach pulled Alain Cassagnol over for speeding at 103 mph in a 45 mph motorway and soon perceived a ‘strong smell of marijuana emitting from his person’ as they were pulling him out of his Mercedes Benz to arrest him.
When he was asked whether he has weed in his car, Cassagnol admitted he had 5.4 grams of weed tucked away in his groin. But on searching the car, police found other interesting items: A frankincense bottle, and another bottle of myrrh spray colloquially known a ‘Blunt Block’ – a spray used to mask the smell of marijuana.
Cassagnol has been booked into jail on a $650 bond. He has been charged with over-speeding and marijuana possession.
