Pringles Can Leads to Connecticut Man’s Arrest by Wilton Police
It appears that people are finding new and inventive ways to transport drugs.
According to an article in the Stamford Daily Voice last Friday, a Wilton police officer pulled over a vehicle on Danbury Rd. because of a couple of malfunctioning lights. As he approached the car, the odor of marijuana wafted over the officer which induced a search of the vehicle.
The officer noticed a can of Pringles which he opened and discovered a cache of cocaine inside the can. William Garcia-Perez was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and driving without working headlights.
After conducting more online research, I found that hiding one's cocaine in a Pringles can is not such an original idea. The same Pringle's can caper happened in Philly in July of 2012 and in Sept. of 2017 when a Monroe teen tried to smuggle her parent's drugs in a Pringle's can. In April of 2013 a New Jersey man was arrested with $2,500 worth of cocaine, yup, you guessed it, in a frickin' Pringle's can.
