Florida Man arrested for possession of 92 grams of laundry detergent

Law&Crime:

Florida Man: I Spent 41 Days in Jail Because Deputy ‘Falsely’ Claimed Detergent Was Heroin.

Florida man Matthew Crull is free from jail, and he shouldn’t have been there in the first place. He spent 41 days in a Martin County jail, but was released. Crull and 10 other people have been let go from jail because now-former Martin County Deputy Steven O’Leary was accused of falsely testing material as narcotics, leading to their arrests.

Crull told WPTV that he has been in jail before, but for nothing like this.

“In the past, when I have gone to jail, it’s been something where I knew I wasn’t going to be there forever,” he said. “It’s a lot different than going to jail and the charge of trafficking of heroin carries a penalty of 25 years in prison.”

He said he was sleeping in his van, parked at a KFC after drinking from a Budweiser. Crull was arrested after investigators found this in the inside of his door: white powder located in plastic and wrapped with a hair-tie. O’Leary claimed he tested it as heroin. It wasn’t, prosecutors say.  more

 

 

Deputy terminated in Martin County due to questions over narcotics evidence.

A deputy with the Martin County Sheriff’s Office has been terminated.

Sheriff William Snyder identified the deputy as Steven O’Leary, who had been on a probationary status with the sheriff’s office since his hiring in February 2018.

Snyder said O’Leary recently made three narcotics arrests and claimed the field tests showed the presence of narcotics.

However, Snyder said the crime lab tests showed no presence of narcotics.

One substance turned out to be a powder used to treat headaches, the other turned out to be a sand-based material, Snyder said.

As a result of the discrepancies, Snyder said the sheriff’s office released nine individuals arrested by O’Leary on narcotics charges. MORE

  1. I hear Roger Stone uses scented Arm n Hammer detergent, thus the need for a 29 member SWAT team raid.

  2. He must have been arrested for felony smuggling of laundry soap,
    or felonious trying to give away free samples of heroin disguised as laundry soap.

  3. This is the result of our tolerance of corruption.
    Once we tolerate it in, say, Obola, Pelosi, Schumer, Waters, Wilson, Ocasio-Cortez, the Supremes, and in the State Houses, it becomes harder to control.

    After a while we just accept it with a sort of fatalism (they ALL do it) and try to avert our eyes. Like the negro guy said after Janet Reno had 86 people murdered at Waco: “Well, maybe they deserved it.”

    We can’t learn what we refuse to study.

    From your post

    “*Update: According to a police spokeswoman, the address of the raid, 7815 Harding Street, is the same as the address on the search warrant, which she says will be publicly released soon.”

    Soon? Why can’t they produce in real-time? I was already thinking they hit the wrong address. Not funny.

  8. Law enforcement agencies KNOW that the $2 field test kits they routinely use have long been proven to produce false positives in roughly 50% of cases. Yet they continue to purposely churn people through the system without any regard for whether they are innocent or guilty because the false arrests produce a lot of revenue for the system.

    The most immoral and prolific criminal enterprise in America today is “law enforcement” and the so-called justice systems. They protect themselves from the consequences of their flagrant crimes by sovereign immunity (near impossible to successfully sue “the state”) so that their victims can never hold them to account.

    Here is just one of many recent stories of people falsely arrested based on these corrupt test kits:

  9. I worked for Bank of America in 2012 when a co-worker decided to spend the night with a female co-worker and left his car in the parking garage overnight. The rent a cops called the cops the next morning who saw boxes in his back seat, called the bomb squad, who closed the whole campus that morning. After trashing his car, they found the boxes contained Amway soap.
