Can you tell it’s a drug bust by his hair cut? [updated]

By Barcham - 14 March 2013 24

excitement

Heading back towards the You Are Here hub after a late lunch, Festival Coordinator Adam Hadley and myself happened along a rather exciting scene outside of Mooseheads. The You Are Here team quickly mobilised to stare through the windows and gossip.

A rather large pile of suspicious looking goods were being sorted through by police, and two men with terrible haircuts were looking quite sad.

We will update the story as soon as we get a comment from the Police.

UPDATE: We received this comment from a police spokesperson:

The men were pulled over for a traffic incident outside Mooseheads.

One of the men was arrested as he was found to be in possession of a drug of dependence.

He has been taken to the ACT Regional Watch House.

Cannabis with quantity for personal use only?

Move along… Nothing to see here.

Wow, you can tell it’s a small amount of cannabis from the photo?

Obviously not, because he was referencing the statement from police. You’re a belligerent know-it-all aren’t you? I can see why you joined the force, must’ve been nice to be able to tell folks what to do and bust heads with impunity to boot.

Actually…. The Police statement says “drug of dependence” which includes but is not limited to heroin, bupamorphine, methamphetamine etc.

Cannabis is a prohibited substance, where anything under 25g would have gotten the offender a SCON… So… I think you can safely say it is not cannabis, so DrKoresh, does Tooks get an apology because your retort is based on no fact?

I’ll cop to being wrong in assuming it was cannibis but I don’t think that has any bearing on Took’s attitude or my opinion of him, so… No.

I can understand that, but you do realise and this will probably earn me being put in the same group that you put Tooks, he only asserted that because of your arm chair knowitallism, just saying is all.

The hair and shiny new trainers are a dead giveaway.

Also, the cop on the right needs to get his pants altered.

Thanks for the clarification DrKoresh.

I referenced the police statement because there was no mention of commercial quantity, which lead me to believe that what the police found was “drug of dependence”, which subtly suggested that they just had some small quantity of cannabis on them.

They’ll probably just get a TIN and a fine for the weed.
Hardly a crime (actually, technically, it isn’t a crime), unless you include Bad-Hair-Do as one.

S***, I’m guilty of that, hardly seems like a crime though. On the other hand, I do support them being pulled up for driving like wankers 😀

Totally failing to get the humour, reference and intent of a post, how “How_Canberran.”

Haven’t you been paying attention? Ben’s old school punk and probably sported the mohawk back in the 70s and 80s. Also note the winking smiley as an extra hint that his tongue was firmly planted in his cheek.
