Ooops

When North Carolina police last month announced the seizure of 13 pounds of fentanyl, they estimated that the narcotics haul had a street value in excess of $2 million and could yield dealers hundreds of thousands of bags of the deadly opioid.

Turns out, however, the “fentanyl” was actually sugar.

After heralding the confiscation at a Wilmington home as one of the largest fentanyl seizures in the state’s history, New Hanover County investigators have revealed that a field test of the white powder (seen above) resulted in a false positive at the time of an early-July raid.

A subsequent test at a state crime lab revealed that powder was sugar. The field test used by police was manufactured by Scott Company Drug Testing, a Texas firm that sells a variety of narcotics testing kits to law enforcement agencies nationwide.


Two observations here....
A) "...and you're going to spend the next three months going blind on paperwork because a Signalman Second Class bought and smoked a dime bag of oregano."

B) Hi-yo!

Reminds me of the famous 1970s song Sugarman, which later became the basis for the Oscar winning documentary Searching For Sugarman.  TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
