Good think criminals aren't smarter. What kind of an idiot draws police attention to himself by speeding...without a license...while he's got 22 lbs (!!) of cocaine with him! Maybe he'd been sampling his own wares.

Don't we all love the stupid ones? It is like Christmas in May when you get a haul like this one. Salute to the officers!
