I can’t think of much else that’s more stupid than turning yourself in to the police for an outstanding warrant than bringing your drugs with you. Of course 26-year-old Ricky Hefflin of Atlanta may very well have been stoned when he decided to go to the Fulton County courthouse in the first place.
As Heflin was trying to go through security he refused to empty his pockets for deputies. According to police he started acting nervous and refused to comply with their demands. When he was searched officers found a plastic bag in his pocket filled with 19 smaller baggies.
Hefflin admitted to police that the bags were filled with Marijuana. He was arrested for Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Sell and also arrested for the two warrants against him for Battery. Hefflin was lodged in the Fulton County Jail.
