Traffic Stop Leads so Arrest of Northern Illinois Man With 897 LSD Tabs
Alek A. Montemayor was driving through Harvard, IL this past Friday, where he lives. An officer witnessed him driving erratically and pulled him over. What this officer found was like a scene out of a 1970's t.v. show.
During a vehicle search, police found LSD, pot, and $13,950 in cash. I guess I'm not to steeped in the whole drug world, but I was unaware that the LSD thing, was still a thing...The amount of LSD this dude had was insane too. WREX
Alek A. Montemayor had 897 tabs of LSD. Holy trippin' your butt off, Alek!
So I had to look this up, because I needed to know what type of penalty that comes with. From ChicagosBestDefense if you possess between 600 and 1500 tabs of LSD, that is a Class X Felony that is punishable by 12 to 50 years in prison. Not to mention the fella had weed and almost $14,000 in cash on him.
Here is one on my favorite LSD stories, as If I have a bunch...I don't. June 12th 1970, Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Doc Ellis threw a no-hitter on LSD. The animated story is hilarious....
"The opposing team and my team knew I was high, but they didn't know what I was high on." - Doc Ellis
One of the best parts not included in this, Doc was still tripping the following day on LSD and showed up at the ballpark ready to pitch. A team employee had to tell him that he pitched the day before, and it was a no-hitter.
