ELLSWORTH, Wisconsin — All that weed must have dulled these boys’ senses.
Three dopey drug-dealing teens made it too easy for cops in Wisconsin by negotiating the sale of a quarter pound of marijuana just steps away from a police station and in plain view of several officers.
Prosecutors say the dim-witted trio pulled into a gas station parking lot on March 9, right next to the Pierce County law enforcement center to make the deal, according to the Woodbury Bulletin.
What they didn’t notice as they tried to exchange the bundle of weed, was a nine-year veteran of the St. Croix Valley Drug Task Force pumping gas into his squad car on one side of them, and a sheriff’s deputy and Department of Natural Resources warden on the other.
Both officers immediately contacted police dispatchers and the teens — identified as Desmond Trok, 18, Matthew P. Jones, 18 and Trace Schofield, 17 — were pulled over and arrested a short way away from the gas station where the deal went down.
The three teens were charged with delivering THC, a felony.
An investigation led cops to a student at the local high school who they say admitted to have arranged the deal.
