What’s a hundred grand nowadays?  Peanuts.  And weed.

On Tuesday, November 7, at approximately 9:45 at night, deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s office were on
routine patrol when they observed a vehicle traveling on Hwy 101
near Laytonville.

The vehicle had ilegally tinted windows, in violation of California vehicle code section 26708.

Deputies conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle at mile marker 76 on Highway 101 and contacted the male driver, John Denney, 36, of McKinleyville.

MCSO K-9 Deputy “Ben” was on scene and alerted to the exterior of the vehicle, indicating the presence of drugs in the car.

During the search of the vehicle deputies located four very large and empty rubberized “sea bag” type of duffle bags, often used to transport marijuana.

Also found was:

  • One pound of bud marijuana;
  • Numerous documents that showed marijuana sales and transactions;
  • a Taser;
  • and more than $130,000 in U.S. currency.

 

Mr. Denney was arrested, without incident, transported and booked into the Mendoccino County Jail for possession and transportation of marijuana, and possession of money intended for a drug transaction.

His bail was set at $50,000.  He posted bail and was released, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Department said.

Tinted windows and a sharp K9 nose led to another fall: the loss of $130,000, a pound of bud, pay and owe records, and wearing a monkey suit to court.

Easy come, easy go.

There will be another one tomorrow.  And tomorrow, and tomorrow, and…
