‘We're embarrassed’: Polk County sheriff volunteer arrested for selling drugs out of patrol vehicle

  1. I have known a few drug dealers that wore a police uniform. The ones that I knew worked security for restaurants on the weekends. They tended to be shady individuals.

  2. No lie. Same with concert/venue security. Back in the 90’s, in the heyday of underground raves, there were a number of shady security guards that would be selling whatever they managed to confiscate back into the party they confiscated them from via a few trusted dealers. Those dudes always had the best shit and it was on discount too!!!

  3. Back when I was visiting Jamaica (20ish years ago) I was told more than once to go to hotel security if I wanted to buy some weed — seemed odd at first but they always had top tier stuff, way better than what you would find on the beach

  4. I mean he’s a volunteer not an actual cop. They don’t get a gun and a badge to go on calls or anything. They get a cruiser that says volunteer on it and they drive around. If they see suspicious stuff they radio dispatch to send actual officers out.

  5. Last week baltimore almost hired an active suspect in a murder trial to work in the city govt, until a detective on the case walked by the man attending his interview and got arrested.

  6. They knew, they just didn't care. American police outside of major metros don't give any kind of a shit.

  7. This article… I wish those quotes were just editorial language but they’re not… they’re direct quotes.

  8. "We’re embarrassed… Somebody messed up 12 years ago on a background," Judd stated. "He’s been a stellar volunteer, very well-loved, done a good job, except when he’s selling oxys out of the car, using it as cover. I am livid." My fav

  9. "He’s been a stellar volunteer, very well-loved, done a good job, except when he’s selling oxys out of the car”

  10. People piss on Sheriff Grady Judd, but they'll miss him when he's gone. Kind of like Orange Man... both hot take masters of the art.

  11. After reading the title out loud and calling the guy a 'dick', my gf was like "why is he a dick, aren't you opposed to the war on drugs?". Yes I am, but this guy was selling garage grime, which is full of all kinds of toxic impurities. That's what makes him a dick.

  12. Polk county where a bunch of redneck country folk break the law and worship a redneck sheriff. I live in the area and I cant fathom the shit that goes on around here. Its a meth induced free for all with the addict's cheering on the police.

  13. Lol. I also live in Florida and whenever I hear about Polk County it's always topping a previous story. It's literally becoming the Florida of Florida.

  14. I’m sorry, “volunteers” are allowed to be in uniform and have access to patrol vehicles without a background check? What the actual hell?

  15. Cmon, the man is 69 years old. You gotta give it to him for hassling at that age, and with some flare as well. When I’m 69, I’ll be in a wheelchair with an oxygen tank.

  16. I am so so so glad I can go into a store and buy my drugs legally now. Fuck having to deal with the contradiction of a cop car dispensing drugs when I am jonesing to get high and forget life for an hour.

  17. I used to be a Sheriff Deputy in Pasco before I left Florida and went to college for something completely different. This doesn't shock me. At all.

  20. A mandatory minimum of 15 years and the dude seems so chill about it lol, "welp I embarrassed the agency." Bro your life is over.

  21. I'm sorry, but this is why law enforcement needs a fix. When a organization has this much power over its people anything less than being being perfect is unacceptable.

  22. There was a cop that liked my mom back in the day, I was what 20. So once I got jimmy to give me a ride to a store I knew told him to run around the block ( in his patrol car ) and pick me up. There is absolutely no way he didn't know he took me to get dope.

  23. Trump was the best president since Lincoln. I hate go brandon, but props for backing Ukraine. Wonder why Puttin waited for this "administion"

  24. They will put his ass in a sweet camp. Give em a punk ass 54 months. Unless they wanna make a statement and North Florida or panhandle his ass. Homeboy is fkd. Better pray for a Hardy, a Polk, or an Avon Park. 5 years in the work camp. Stooopid ass
