Meth Dealer Busted After Visiting Yogi Bear in Yellowstone
With the holidays here, lot's of Americans are hitting the road to go visit family. While some are hitting the road to visit a fictitious bear in a national park.
According to MTN News
Manuel Paz Sanchez Jr. made his initial appearance Thursday in U.S. District Court in Billings on one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Apparently Sanchez was tailgating another driver on I-90 and gave a MT State Trooper cause to pull him over. The trooper noticed the California drivers license and registration showing the car was a rental out of Sacramento. According to the report, the driver said he was traveling from visiting family in Idaho. Sanchez thought catching a flight from North Dakota would be cheaper than driving the rental home.
It was also a little suspicious that Sanchez didn't know the name of any of the towns he had been in, let alone the name of his destination in North Dakota. But, if that wasn't suspicious enough, Sanchez than said that he also was visiting Yogi Bear in Yellowstone National Park. This was when the trooper decided that maybe he was up to no good.....I mean, what more of a red flag do you need? Clearly, as we all know, Yogi lives in JELLYstone park. I MEAN C'mon Sanchez!!
The trooper secured permission to search and found nearly 8 pounds of meth in a spare tire.
