Odd Overreaction

Police in Manchester, England, stopped by a house to talk to a man. The man wasn’t home, but his brother Rezwan Hussain was, and he promised to pass along the officers’ phone number. When they left, Hussain, 33, panicked, ran to the attic, and started chucking large bags of cocaine and heroin out the window. Police couldn’t help but notice, since the bags landed next to their car. By the time they figured out what was in the bags, Hussain had fled, but a raid of the home found a drug “factory” in the basement; 250 kilos of drugs estimated to be worth 3 million pounds (US$4.55 million) were found. After 7 months of legal proceedings, Hussain was found guilty and sentenced to 11-1/2 years in prison. Police have still not found his brother.
