James Kinley III, 27, was recently charged in York County, South Carolina with dealing marijuana. Not an uncommon crime, but the scope of his ignorance is astounding. He apparently had the (unfounded) belief that York County deputies do not monitor Craigslist — because that is where Kinley advertised (“I Sell Weed”), in a notice with his photo, address and price ($200). 

Mr. Grady Carlson, 58, went to the Carolina Title Loans office in Spartanburg, South Carolina, to apply for a high-interest “payday” loan – and nervously paced while answering questions. The Carolina employee asked if anything was wrong, and Carlson allegedly disclosed that he needed money– fast! -- to purchase methamphetamines. A subsequent police search turned up a glass container and drugs. [report from WIS-TV (Columbia)]

Mr. Timothy Trammell, 36, was arrested on several charges in Jonesville, South Carolina, after a sheriff’s deputy spotted him spray-painting a car that was not his. According to the deputy’s report, Trammell had just finished angrily painting “C-h-e-e-t-e-r” (sic) on the car (belonging to a woman, identified in a WSPA-TV report as his girlfriend). His defense? Love makes you do crazy things.
