Florida Police Find Bag Full Of Drugs In Bag Labelled 'Bag Full Of Drugs'
If you're hoarding a load of drugs that could land you in jail for a very long time, you'd probably be pretty inconspicuous about the whole thing, right?
Well, try telling that to the person who just got caught by police in America for having a bag full of drugs inside a bag labelled 'Bag Full of Drugs'.
A Florida Highway Patrol trooper reportedly detected a car travelling 25 miles per hour over the speed limit in Santa Rosa County.
They pulled the vehicle over and a K-9 dog alerted the trooper to the presence of drugs.
It was at that this moment that police will allege they found a bag that read 'Bag Full of Drugs' literally contained a bunch of narcotics.
While some people might label this as stupid, you could also argue that the 'hiding in plain sight' strategy isn't a bad idea. Surely no one would actually put a load of drugs inside a bag advertised as such: "No officer, this is just my keep cup, my house keys and a Harry Potter book."

Police allegedly seized meth, GHB, cocaine, MDMA and fentanyl inside the 'Bag Full Of Drugs', which is no small haul.
The Santa Rosa County Police Department wrote on Facebook about the seizure: "Santa Rosa K-9 Deputies recently assisted FHP on a traffic stop on I-10 where a large amount of narcotics were discovered.
"Note to self - do not traffic your illegal narcotics in bags labeled 'Bag Full Of Drugs'. Our K-9's can read."
But that's nowhere near as good as the man caught with cocaine on his nose telling police that it wasn't his. According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the driver of a car was pulled over for a routine traffic stop and in the passenger seat sat a 20-year-old man.
Now usually these types of stops will focus on the driver and cops will be keen to see their licence and registration, but deputies Eneida Rossi and Abigail Bieber couldn't help but notice the passenger and a strange substance on his nose.
A certain white substance.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office wrote on Facebook: "[His] nose was swabbed and a test yielded positive results for cocaine content. A search of [him] yielded a small baggy of powder cocaine concealed on him.
"[He] was arrested without incident but he attempted to tell the deputies the cocaine on his nose was not his!"
Instead of being caught red-handed, this bloke was apparently caught white-nostriled. Imagine trying to chuck up the 'it's not mine' excuse when it's sitting there right on your nose.
