In case the title makes no sense to you…
The festival in question is the Gathering of the Juggalos, so the ICP reference seemed appropriate.
In some ways, I’m sure selling drugs at a music festival is harder than it sounds. It’s loud, for a start. A lot of attendees are paying you no mind because they’re just there for the music, for some reason. And there’s almost certainly going to be market competition. If you want to make any sort of decent money, you’re going to have to find a way to stand out. And even then you don’t want to stand out too much, because there’s going to be cops and security guards everywhere.
“But Steve, how do I know if I’m standing out too much?”
Easy. If you’re doing anything that these guys did, you’ve gone too far.
Four people were charged Monday with offenses, including Malik H. Ahmad, 38, and his girlfriend, Jessica Reyes, 20, both of Wisconsin. Both were arrested Friday after an undercover Licking County Sheriff’s Office deputy observed Ahmad “speaking on a loud speaker advertising cocaine for sale,” according to court records.
The deputy reported observing multiple sales of cocaine and asked uniformed deputies to arrest Ahmad and seize a white bag that appeared to be being used to store the drugs before they were sold.
When deputies arrived, Ahmad reportedly handed the bag off to Reyes, who fled the area. Deputies had to use a stun gun to subdue Ahmad as he continued to resist arrest, according to court documents.
Reyes was tracked down by deputies and also arrested. The white bag was found to contain about 100 grams of cocaine, as well as a large amount of heroin, a large amount of money and drug paraphernalia.
Also on Saturday, deputies arrested 31-year-old Columbus resident Kimmy V. Gable after he was reportedly spotted with a cardboard sign advertising cocaine, marijuana, ketamine and beer.
An undercover officer observed Gable sell substances from a green backpack to concertgoers, according to court records.
The backpack was found to contain about 25 grams of cocaine, some of which was packaged for sale; a crystalline substance; marijuana; and drug paraphernalia, court records said.
