  • Chasing Thief Who Stole Your Pot Not Good Reason To Speed

Speeders come up with all sorts of reasons why they are speeding when caught by police – wife having a baby, late for a meeting, trying to get to church. One reason you might want to keep to yourself however is the reason Ryan Neaus, 21, Hazleton gave the officer who pulled him over for speeding – he was chasing the person who just robbed him of his Apple iPhone and three bags of marijuana.

While police were conducting “Buckle Up” – a special grant program to target drivers not using seat belts late Friday night, they stopped a vehicle they said was driving at an extremely high rate of speed and switching lanes without using turn signals.

During the traffic stop, police say they observed a glass bowl used for smoking marijuana on the front seat in plain view. Police also found 15 individually packaged baggies of marijuana and 13 ecstasy pills during a search of the vehicle.

Neaus was charged with possession with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said. He was also cited with careless driving and failure to wear a seatbelt.

Seems as if the police did not have any compassion to the fact that poor Neaus had been robbed of some illegal narcotics. Maybe he should have used the “late to church” excuse instead.
