Cops Can’t Stop Laughing After Seeing Message On Man’s Truck
A vehicle seized by police from a drug dealer had a shocking message written on the back of it that prompted laughter from social media users.
The drug dealer, known as the “Candy Man,” drove the expensive, fancy truck around town and constantly evaded the law before police finally caught up with him and arrested him, All That’s News reported. His truck was seized and repurposed as a police vehicle, which included a shocking message written on the back.
“This vehicle belonged to a drug dealer: He went to jail and we are driving his car,” the message read.
The photo quickly went viral, with many applauding the department for using the vehicle to spread a blunt but amusing message about messing with the law.
“That’s what i’m talking about,” one Newsiosity reader commented on the site’s Facebook page.
“GOD BLESS Our police!” another wrote.
“The punk deserved it,” another added.
In a similar story, a police department in New Braunfels, Texas, seized a Corvette and repurposed it for officers to drive.
“Coptimus Prime, the NBPD’s Corvette that was seized from a drug dealer, is doing its job gaining the attention of the community thanks to a number of recent media stories!” the department wrote in a Facebook post that included a photo of the high-end car.
The department went on to explain some details about the purpose of the car:
The Corvette was wrapped like a police car and debuted to the community in 2015, so this is not a new vehicle or a second Corvette for the department. The Corvette will eventually be sold at auction, with the money going back to the PD to fund other community outreach programs. However, there are no current plans to take the vehicle to auction. When we do have those plans, though, we’ll be sure to let everyone know! Meanwhile, Coptimus Prime will continue to make appearances at local schools, in local parades, and at community events…sparking conversation with kids and adults alike, providing the public with a way to have an interaction with a police officer that isn’t getting a ticket or dealing with some other criminal situation.
Many locals applauded the car and the department after their post went viral online.
“Man, y’all need to have a young, tall handsome officer in Ray Ban’s and full uniform driving that thing,” one reader commented.
“Would make a really fine unmarked unit,” another wrote.
“On behalf of my employer Corsa Performance Exhaust, I am honored to donate one of our exhaust kits we produce for the ZO6 Coptimus Prime,” another added.
