    State Patrol pot bust yields 62 pounds in Carlton County

    Two Texas residents were charged this week with attempting to transport 62 pounds of marijuana through Carlton County.

    Two Texas residents were charged this week with attempting to transport 62 pounds of marijuana through Carlton County.

    Jorge Gutierrez-Salazar, 24, faces a felony charge of third-degree possession of a controlled substance, while Graciela Yadit Medrano, 21, is charged with aiding and abetting third-degree possession of a controlled substance, a felony.

    According to the complaint, the Rockwall, Texas, residents were stopped by a Minnesota State Patrol officer as they drove north on Interstate 35 just before noon on Jan. 5.

    Trooper David Vereecken stopped the vehicle because of an obstructed license plate. He reported that as he spoke to the duo, their stories conflicted and made no sense. He then noticed a caricature of the so-called patron saint of drug smugglers, “Jesus Malverde,” hanging from the defendant’s rear-view mirror, court documents said.

    According to the complaint:

    Vereecken then called for assistance from the Fond du Lac Police Department for a drug detection dog. As Fond du Lac Sgt. Casey Rennquist walked Victor around the vehicle, the dog alerted at the trunk. As the trunk was opened, he specifically indicated several pieces of luggage inside.

    Two large bales of marijuana reportedly were found inside the luggage and a preliminary field weight by the trooper revealed the amount to be 62 pounds.

    Police said Salazar told officers the drugs belonged to him and that he was bringing the drugs to Duluth from Texas as a “favor to a sinister drug cartel he was familiar with.”

    Medrano reportedly owned the vehicle and knew the drugs were inside.
    Medrano’s family posted $10,000 bond, according to jail staff. Salazar’s bail was set at $50,000 and he remains in Carlton County Jail.

    They are all over the border here.

    Statues, pictures, posters, etc. Some even pray to the damn image.

    :rofl:

    I had heard of La Santisima Muerte, but not this crap. Jesus Malverde, he looks like he could be an old Mexican Movie star. Man, what kind of crap must have the first guy that began the idea of worshipping that crap been on. Better yet, the genius that convinced people to worship him and is now making money on the likeness and products. Un-freakin'-believable.

    LMAO - brilliant!!! :upeyes: If you're gonna smuggle weed, wouldn't it make sense to do a preflight before you set out to make sure you don't have equipment violations to get pulled over for? You know, check things like the license plate, ensure your signals and lights work...

    ...and maybe NOT hang the 'patron saint' of drug smuggling from your mirror?!?!? Heck, why not just cut right to the chase and get one of those little yellow diamond shaped signs made up that says 'Weed on Board' and put it in the back window?

    Good thing they're usually not too bright, huh?

    And of course they forgot the most important thing - don't talk to the police!!

    Good on the officer for seeing and knowing what the mirror decoration represented.
