Man With Car Full Of Drugs Takes Selfie While Driving With Police Watching—And We’re Shaking Our Heads 😑

When driving, one should always keep one’s eyes on the road. That’s doubly true if you happen to be a drug dealer hauling $16,000 worth of methamphetamines, a lesson one man in Winnipeg, Canada, learned the hard way.

On Tuesday, November 13, Winnipeg police officers pulled over a 38-year-old man they caught taking a selfie while driving. Once he was on the side of the road, they spied what they suspected was a bag of drugs inside the vehicle.

Officers quickly arrested the driver and found out just how right they were.

The car contained:

  • 16.5 grams of methamphetamine (estimated street value of $16,000)
  •  23.3 ounces of cocaine (estimated street value of $46,000)
  •  3 grams of heroin (estimated street value of $1,500)
  •  13.9 ounces of a cutting agent
  •  229 Xanax pills (estimated street value of $900)
  •  $2,285 in Canadian currency
  •  2 mobile phones
  •  Digital scale

Twitter was less than impressed by this master criminal:

Was a selfie worth being arrested?

This man will surely be remembered in the drug trafficking hall of shame.

The man (whose selfie turned out great, by the way), has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of drug trafficking. Privacy laws prevent reporters from finding out whether he was also issued a ticket for distracted driving, but that will likely be the least of his worries.
