Unwise man found with frankincense, myrrh, and marijuana
Tuesday 24 December 2013
A not-so-wise man was arrested early on the 23rd December in South Carolina, US, after he was caught speeding with frankincense, myrrh, and marijuana.
19 year-old Alain Cassagnol from Long Island, New York, was spotted by a police officer in the coastal city of Myrtle Beach driving at 103 mph in a 45 mph zone.
According to the police report, when Mr Cassagnol stepped out of the white Mercedes-Benz sedan officers smelled a “strong odor of marijuana emitting from his person."
Officers found a 5.4 gram bag of marijuana stashed in his groin, as well as a bottle of frankincense and myrrh incense spray inside the vehicle.
It is suspected that the air-freshener was intended to block the strong odour of the illegal drug when burnt.
Mr Cassagnol was charged with speeding and marijuana possession, and is currently imprisoned in the Horry County jail in the southern American state.
