Man Eats His Marijuana Before A Traffic Stop

A Lake Worth man driving with his infant daughter sitting in the back seat tried to eat his marijuana before a traffic stop.

According to an article in the Sun Sentinel, Jhon Smith Saint Eloi was driving in a rental car when he was pulled over by police for failing to stop properly at a stop bar. The officer noticed a heavy smell of marijuana and saw green flakes scattered in the car, including near the baby. Three rocks later determined to be MDMA were later found in Eloi's sock and green flakes were found in his mouth. Saint Elio admitted he tried to eat his marijuana when he was pulled over and hid the MDMA in his sock.

Saint Eloi now faces charges of drug use, drug possession, tampering with evidence and child abuse.
