The Smoking Gun reports:
Meet Rasoul Speight.
Speight, 32, was driving on the Palisades Interstate Parkway when his 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer was pulled over during a routine traffic stop. When cops detected the smell of marijuana they asked for–and received–permission to search the car.
While investigators found “nothing of evidentiary value” inside the vehicle, Speight and passenger Gary Sylak, 25, were both arrested due to outstanding traffic warrants, according to cops.
While Speight, seen above, was being processed at police headquarters, he “was found to be in possession of 100 bags of heroin which were concealed in his anus and undetectable at the scene.” Police estimated the heroin’s vale at $1000 in New York City, and $2000 in upstate New York, “where both subjects were traveling to.”
Speight, who cops noted is “also listed as a Bloods gang member,” was jailed in lieu of $38,500 bail on a pair of felony drug counts.
The real news story here is that heroin is half-priced in New York City. Who knew!
