Ultimate CA Irony:  A Routine Traffic Stop for Violating a Brand New Traffic Law (which prohibited holding a cell phone while driving) ends in an Arrest over 325 lbs. of Marijuana, which had just been… Scroll down to read more!

CHiPs (California Highway Patrol) lucked into a huge bust after reportedly pulling over a van on Interstate 580 near Castro Valley to issue a ticket to the driver for using a handheld cellphone while driving.

The routine traffic stop was interrupted when a sedan pulled in front of CHiPs vehicle, cutting the cops off and permitting the van, and then the sedan, to both speed away from the cops

I’m seriously! 

Think about that for a moment.  The cops stop a van, but a car pulls in between the van and the cops, the van splits and then the sedan takes off as well.  Again…

Well, just as many a cop has said… “you might be faster than my car but you are not faster than my radio”… and truer words have never been uttered.  In this case cops quickly caught up to and stopped both vehicles in Castro Valley, and a subsequent search of both the sedan and the van revealed 200 pounds of marijuana between the two vehicles.  And if that was not enough the bust led to the discovery of another 125 pounds of pot (for a total of 325 pounds) as well as a suitcase containing $1,030,000.00 in cash inside storage lockers.

According to Alameda County Sheriff’s spokesperson Ray Kelly:  “So basically a car stop for a cellphone violation led to the recovery of 325 pounds of marijuana, $1,030,000.00 and on top of that some marijuana equipment.”  

The occupants of the vehicles were arrested on suspicion of sales and transportation of narcotics but, because they are believed to be a part of a much larger underground marijuana operation, their names have not yet been released.

Here’s the Irony:  On November 8, 2016 California voters made marijuana legal, less than two months later, on January 1, 2017, California Law made it illegal for anyone to hold a cell phone while driving, and on Saturday, April 8th, 2017 a routine traffic stop on a new law yielded a major seizure of a legal substance.

Memo to the Folks:  If you have a car full of dope and are en route to a major illegal narcotics transaction it’s probably a good idea to follow all traffic laws to the “t”.  For these knuckleheads it’s all “Gloom, despair and agony on me; deep dark depression intensive misery; if it weren’t for bad luck [they’d] have no luck at all; gloom, despair and agony on me…”
