Deputy Sheriff Busted Selling Drugs from Squad Car While on Duty

As a State College drug defense attorney, I am very familiar with police officers going under cover, buying marijuana from drug dealers, and then charging the dealers with felony offenses of drug delivery and possession with intent to deliver. The deals are done somewhat secretly to avoid detection. A Georgia deputy sheriff chose a different approach and decided  to distribute marijuana while in full uniform, displaying his badge, and selling drugs out of the back of his squad car. According to the FBI, it is alleged that the deputy had quite an operation and distributed approximately 10 to 15 pounds of marijuana a week.
