New York Man Hid Cocaine, LSD, Pot Inside Stuffed Animal Wearing A D.A.R.E. T-Shirt
An upstate New York man is facing narcotics charges after cops found marijuana, cocaine, and LSD hidden inside a stuffed animal wearing a D.A.R.E. t-shirt.
Gregory Bolognese, 22, was arrested Monday at the Greyhound bus station in Plattsburgh, a city about 20 miles south of the Canadian border. In announcing Bolognese’s bust, New York State Police officials did not detail how they came to discover the drugs inside the bear in Bolognese’s possession.
As seen in the above evidence photo, cops seized the stuffed animal.
The lion in question is “Darin,” the official mascot of D.A.R.E., who wears a black t-shirt with the group’s logo and the words “To Resist Drugs And Violence.” The Drug Abuse Resistance Education program aims to educate students about the dangers of narcotics, gangs, and violence.
Bolognese, seen at right, was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, as well as marijuana possession. The Plattsburgh resident, who was booked into the Clinton County jail in lieu of $500 bail, is scheduled for a September 11 court hearing.
