One of the challenges of drug-dealing is establishing a place of business that's both discreet AND convenient. And THIS guy had an interesting take on how to handle that . . .
69-year-old David Roberts was a volunteer with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and he was caught last Thursday selling prescription pills . . . out of a patrol car . . . while in uniform.
The county started an investigation after talk got out that an officer was selling Oxycodone, and they found pills in one of their patrol cars. He was busted by an undercover deputy.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said he was LIVID when he found out . . . and added, quote, "I'm hotter than a bear butt on a tin roof in August."
David was arrested on weapons and drug trafficking charges, and there's a minimum mandatory sentence of 15 years for the drug charge. He also had marijuana and firearms with him at the time of his arrest.
The sheriff said that David had been a volunteer for 12 years . . . and he shouldn't have been cleared to begin with, because he's a convicted felon from 52 years ago. David was arrested for a burglary when he was 19 years old.
