Man Caught Snorting Meth Off Gambling Machine

This week a man from Decatur, Indiana was arrested for drug possession after he was caught snorting meth off a gambling machine.

The 25 year old man was arrested after a bartender at Lindy Lu's gaming parlor and bar saw the man snorting something off of a gambling machine shortly after noon on Monday. Police were called and dispatched to the scene, but the man had left. The bartender copied the license plate of the car that the man left in, and police found the suspect about a day later, arresting him.

Methamphetamine residue was apparently still on the gambling machine, and the suspect was charged with possession. He was jailed in the Macon County Jail, as he was unable to post the $5,000 bond ordered by the judge.

I know what I would say if I was his lawyer... got a video or any proof it was him? Did you find any meth on him when you arrested him? No? Then see you later.

Surely that is not enough evidence to put someone in jail.

You'd be surprised, Ed. You can get thrown in jail pretty easily over here...

blck...there are plenty of reasons why someone with a meth adiction would do that...
methamphetamine is a real sick drug...it is highly addictive ..it not only makes you awake / fit for days ...
it also has a strong effect on the psyche ..the consequences are paranoid, delusions, psychoses and
a lot more
so at some point of meth adiction you dont care where you are or much more worse you not
really realize where you are

The police everywhere around Canada, and more specifically in Calgary here, are drowning in the stuff, they can't keep up, and one headline on the daily news paper mentioned something along the lines of " Calgary police are having a tough time handling doped up thugs " .

"it also has a strong effect on the psyche ..the consequences are paranoid, delusions, psychoses anda lot more"

This is absolutley true, before I checked myself into rehab awhile back, this is exactly what i went through. Paranoid psychosis, with delusional thoughts and visions. Dr . Deemed me legally unemployable for a year so i could get financial assistance and concentrate on getting better . Haven't touched it since.
It's cheap, it last for days and there is more and more of it coming from every direction. Police should be busy helping people, instead they're forced to put a lot of man power into busting some of these big distributors, I think they call it Operation Daybreak.

This is the kind of guy they will absolutley release, but not until he really needs his fix. They will do this so that as soon as he's released, where does he go, but the nearest drug dealer, and the police take a big step forward just like that.

thumb up dude...good to hear that you leave your fingers of the stuff since your rehab...i think methamphetamine is realy the worst drug of all...it is worse than cocaine and heroin because it destroys the body and psyche so quickly...
and a other big problem is that you can make it yourself with a little help from the internet.
here in germany you can only find or buy it if you move toward polish and czech border..in the west of germany where i live you hardly get it

I think that that was a bit harsh arresting the guy a day later and without actually catching him in the act red handed to me is just wrong , Too harsh in my view

lambino maybe it is appropriate i think that the act of police has something to do with the growing problems they are facing...canada looks over to america and see how big the
methamphetamine problem is in the us... and they seemingly try to stifle the problems in the bud...
that must be the case if you read what warofthegods wrote:

He should know not to do this in public. If he wants to act this way... he should rather go home. Does he think he is the only one in the casino?! I am shocked to read this

I agree with you but the biggest error that governments and authorities make in dealing with the war on drugs is that they targeting the wrong people , take this case for example the addict was arrested and fined a very high fine but its most likely not going to stop him as he is addicted the cops and whoever else is available to fight this global epidemic need to focus on taking out the dealers and suppliers first before the addict as that's the only real way that results will actually be noticed and at the very least slow down the rate in which the epidemic is growing

We live in South Africa where more people die daily from murder and carjackings than in warzones so this kind of news is really petty for us to hear and would not even make our local schools newsletter as news as we have far worse crime taking place every minuet 🤔

you are absolutely right...sure he is not the problem and certainly, the arrest will
not stop the addict from continuing to consume
i dont know what exactly is the situation there in cannada maybe the police is simply
overwhelmed with the rise of the drug problem...but here in germany you would be also
arrested in the first place and get a penalty

This is how the cops get to the dealers and suppliers. See those guys rarely stick their necks out long enough to even be seen, never mind being tracked, watched, followed and otherwise having someone on them 24/7 to build a case against them. Most have been in the game a long time and have lots of tricks on how to stay out of the cops line of sight.
But the addicts, they will lead cops exactly where they want, and no man power lost in looking other than one officer . They arrest one guy like this, they know for a fact no charge will stick, in fact that's what they're hoping for is for him to walk. Because when he does, and without breaking a sweat, the cops have found a drug dealer or at least a runner who will also lead them to a dd, who in turn will eventually bring them up to a supplier and so on .
They make these arrests on chumped up charges with a plan in play, because in all honesty, with the lack of manpower in the police force, its likely their only option, but it's a very good one on their part.

I agree with the most of you guys above..but one thing is for certain we won't solve some of the world's biggest problems even discussing it here.
You know what's the saddest thing from this story for me...the guy hasn't be able to pay his warranty even after playing doped..obviously that's not a handicap by any means. 😉
