If you’re going to commit one crime, it’s best you stick to that number and refrain from trying to tally off more along the way. A Georgia man was busted for shoplifting and for possession of a controlled substance.
Markus Rashad Tull was arrested at a Morgan County Walmart when he was accused of “skip scanning” items in the self-checkout lane. A Walmart police officer informed police that the 28-year-old had skipped at least 24 items during the checkout process.
After reviewing the surveillance video, police confirmed that Tull had not paid for multiple items, which came to a total of around $165. He was promptly arrested but asked officers if he could keep the items he did buy. The authorities agreed to put those items in the back seat of his car.
When officers got to the vehicle they opened the trunk to find three duffle bags full of vacuum-sealed bags of marijuana totaling 37 pounds, as well as a smaller bag of suspected Psilocybin mushrooms. Police confirmed that it was the largest marijuana bust in the department’s history.
Tull has been charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, trafficking, theft by shoplifting, possession of drug-related objects, possession of a schedule I or II controlled substance with intent to distribute and possession of a schedule I controlled substance.
