You just might want to remove any identification , before tossing away the evidence.

A Moss Point , Mississippi man found that out, after being arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine when he was stopped during a safety checkpoint
Narcotics agents from the George County Sheriff’s Office and troopers from the Mississippi Highway Patrol were conducting the roadblock when  Deputy Shaun Jodon spotted a silver Toyota Sequoia turning into a driveway, shutting off the headlights and the driver exiting the vehicle, then walking a short distance away and dropping something, before returning to the vehicle.
As the driver, later identified as 34-year-old Chadwick Brian Whittington, attempted to back the vehicle out of the driveway, Jodon initiated a traffic stop and walked the perimeter of the vehicle and spotted a camouflage book bag lying on the ground. Whittington denied it was his, but a search of the bag revealed 8 clear baggies with a combined 11 grams of methamphetamine, along with several forms of narcotics paraphernalia.
Also found in the bag was a paycheck stub and a bottle of pills, both with Whittington’s name on them. Whittington then admitted  to the officers that he had lied about the book bag because he was on probation and did not want to go back to prison.
Whittington was charged with possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, and booked into the George Regional Jail. He made his initial court appearance  and was released on bond.

A couple face charges of drug trafficking, after being stopped for a traffic violation . Matthew Mills, 32, and Feliciano Marzigliano, 23, were taken into custody  after being stopped  in Pocono Summit, Pa,  Pocono Mountain Regional police said in a press release.

According to police, during the stop, officers noticed that the passenger of the vehicle, Marzigliano, appeared to be a bit “lumpy,”  and following a K9 search, it was discovered that she had 159 bags of heroin concealed in her bra and panties.   Marzigliano claimed that Mills had instructed her to hide the drugs.
The  K-9 search of the vehicle then uncovered an additional 22 bags of heroin concealed in the trunk, under the spare tire well. Police say Mills originally possessed between 180 and 190 bags of heroin that he purchased in bulk, manufactured and bagged, before traveling with Marzigliano to the Pocono Mountains to sell the narcotics.

Police recovered more bags hidden in Marzigliano’s bra and panties than were found hidden in the trunk.

Mills and Marzigliano each face various charges including possession of heroin with intent to distribute, criminal conspiracy and tampering with evidence.

Authorities have used details from recorded conversations during prison visits from relatives to charge a pair of landscapers with a series of  home burglaries.

Javier Ramos,44, and David Lafanto, 42, both of Allentown, PA, were arranged on burglary charges after electronics and jewelry were stolen from three homes. The duo worked for Class Act Landscaping out of Schnecksville, Pa., and authorities believe they burglarized the homes of customers.

Police say the pair were incarcerated in Lehigh County Prison regarding an different incident when authorities obtained recorded conversations from visitations at the prison.
During one of the visits Ramos spoke with his girlfriend, Allison Wanamaker, and discussed where to take some of the items which had been stolen from the homes .
If she was asked where she obtained the items, Ramos told Wanamaker to tell people she got it from “the electronics fairy.”
During a visit with his wife at the prison,  Lafantano told her that he was mad because Ramos’ girlfriend was going to be getting all of the items stolen from the homes, and his wife should get her share.
Authorities responded to the Wanamaker residence, where Allison’s father admitted he thought his daughter had brought stolen electronics into the home. When police searched the home, they found items matching those stolen during the recent burglaries, according to court records.

But it wasn’t just by chance that police led police to believe that  Ramos and Lafantano may have been responsible for  the burglaries, Police traced the burglaries to  Lafantano after finding an envelope addressed to Lafantano’s daughter left behind at the scene of the one of the break-ins, according to court records.
