DEERFIELD, Massachusetts — A drugged-out trucker was busted in a Circle K parking after a high-octane trip fueled by speed, LSD and cocaine that took him non-stop from Washington state to Massachusetts in 48 hours.
Deerfield police say they were called to the store after employees noticed trucker Gary Robbins acting strangely in the parking lot.
The Homer, Alaska resident was allegedly running around in a highly agitated and confrontational state after locking himself out of the cab. He had also thrown his credit cards into the vehicle’s gas tank and was trying to crawl in through the space between the cab and the trailer, the Greenfield Recorder reported.
When police spoke to Robbins they noticed his pupils were dilated and that he appeared to be high on drugs. He then admitted using crystal methamphetamine, LSD and cocaine.
“It appeared the driver didn’t rest, only used drugs, and he drove from Seattle, Washington to Deerfield, with a destination on the East Coast,” the police said in a statement.
Robbins was delivering a load of raspberry root.
Cops say they “had quite the struggle to get this truck driver to the Baystate Franklin Medical Center,” and that “he was clearly a danger to himself and others.”
He was charged with driving under the influence and long list of moving vehicle infractions.The truck was impounded.
