Sometimes jocks get caught with a little bit of “smoking weed.” Just enough to roll a joint or two. But not former UC and Lakers star Corie Blount: unless he is going to roll up the mother of all fatties, that 11 pounds of marijuana he was caught with is likely meant for sale to someone else . . . at least the cops think so. Here’s more from WCPO:
The Butler County Sheriff’s Office says the marijuana came from out of state and was scheduled to be delivered by the United States Postal Service to an address in Liberty Township. The sheriff’s office says Blount arrived at a Liberty Township residence to retrieve the package. Authorities then followed Blount to his residence where he was arrested.
Search warrants were executed at Blount’s residence where a second package was discovered, similar to the one he picked up earlier. Authorities say that package contained around 11 pounds of marijuana and a third package located contained approximately seven pounds of marijuana.
Authorities confiscated 29 pounds of marijuana, $29,500 in cash, a 1996 Mercedes Benz, a 2004 Cadillac Escalade, a 2000 Chevrolet Suburban, and three guns.
