: The crackheads in Baltimore are going to have to look a little harder for their rocks this morning. MediaTakeOut.com has learned that the Baltimore police made their largest drug bust ever in the city.
Police caught Baltimore’s Trenell D. Murphy, 33, with 41 kilos of cocaine. Here’s how the Associated Press is reporting it:
Police set up surveillance of Murphy’s home Thursday evening. They saw Murphy and another man leave the house, each carrying a white plastic garbage bag. The men drove off in separate directions, and police followed them. The men ultimately dumped the bags, which turned out to contain packaging and other materials with cocaine residue, the documents show.
That was enough for police to obtain a search warrant for Murphy’s home, which they executed early Friday. No drugs were found inside the house, but Murphy denied several times that he owned a pickup truck that was parked outside and registered in his name, the documents show. It was the same truck Murphy had used when he dumped the garbage bag.
Officers spotted the cocaine in packages in the bed of the truck, obtained a search warrant and recovered the 41 kilograms, the documents show.
Dude is gonna do some serious time over that …
