Special Delivery

A man called a cab in Chicago, Ill., and then passed out on the way to his destination. After about 10 minutes of unsuccessfully trying to wake him, the frustrated cabbie delivered him to the Rogers Park District police station. When police searched the man’s bag, they found what was apparently a miniature meth lab, complete with processed drugs with a street value of about $450,000. Police arrested Joseph A. Hoffman, 25, and released the cab driver without telling him exactly what his fare was carrying. “They said they found a lot of bad stuff,” the hack said. (MS/Chicago Tribune) ...He had $450,000 worth of meth and still couldn’t stay awake?!
