(Story broke 6/21/2017)
20-year-old Ed Lamarre, of Miami, has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder in the supposed craigslist killing of 19-year-old Brian Brown in North Miami Beach. Previously it was thought Brown was selling a Playstation on craigslist when he was killed. Now, reports are saying the deal was actually for marijuana.
Police say in their arrest report Lamarre got in the back of Brown’s car and was handed a bag containing some weed. Instead of paying for it, it’s alleged Lamarre shot Brown in the back and fled. Lamarre was captured because he left his phone behind and was picked out by Brown’s girlfriend in a photo line up.
Brown’s family is maintaining Brian was not a drug dealer, however, police are saying craigslist was not part of his murder.
Lamarre is said to have confessed to the murder.
Even if Brian Brown was selling weed to Lamarre, his life was still cut short by a lazy and greedy asshole. Lamarre was even said to have had no intention of paying Brown for the weed. So instead he shot Brown in the back over a half-ounce of weed after Brown allegedly tried to take it back. Lamarre allegedly killed Brian Brown just because he didn’t want to pay to get high, and now a man who had a potentially bright future is dead. To me that makes Lamarre one of the lowest forms of criminal.
Police: Child abuse hotline supervisor sold pot with children in home:
If this isn’t like rain on your wedding day I don’t know what is.
In Glenville, New York police arrested 39-year-old Kristen Trapalis for selling weed out of her home while three young children, 7 months, 4 year and 6-years, were there. Police confiscated 4 pounds of weed during the arrest.
What makes this ironic is that Trapalis is a supervisor for the state’s child abuse hotline. According to tipster K. this doesn’t come as that big of a surprise to her…
I once called this child abuse hotline, and reported someone smoking crack in front of his 7 year old daughter. The response was “And how does that harm the child?”.
So I guess if smoking crack in front of kids is allegedly tolerated then dealing weed out of your house surely must not be that big a deal.
Drug dealing, no matter what kind of drug, can be a violent business. When you’re dealing in large quantities and have an excess of cash laying around the house you’re leaving yourself wide open to a plethora of violent crimes, which in turn puts the young children of the house in grave danger.
No word if police were tipped off through the child abuse hotline. Somehow I doubt it.
Lawton boy’s 911 call prompts couple’s drug arrests:
Once again we go back to the Sooner state of Oklahoma to the city of Lawton where an 11-year-old where an 11-year-old boy called police on his drug dealing mom and her boyfriend.
Police there arrested 33-year-old Jennifer Lynn Patterson and her 25-year-old boyfriend Michael Dewayne French. In the house police claim they found a 1/4 pound of weed, a scale and baggies among other things.
This is a must read article. I won’t do it justice with my usual spiel of crap but let me give you a little taste of what the boy had to go through to get his mom busted…
“He told his mother drugs were bad, and she supposedly told him to keep quiet,” Palmer said.
“He tried to tell neighbors and even his grandparents, but for some reason, they didn’t think it was appropriate to get involved. He even tried to get hold of his father, who is in the military, but had no luck.
Not surprisingly French was unemployed and often took the boy on drug deals.

JPSO: Arrested Marrero woman beat 15-year-old daughter after teen failed to sell prescription drugs:
46-year-old Brenda Arabie of Marrero, Louisiana was arrested on charges of distributing narcotics to a minor, cruelty to a juvenile and alprazolam distribution. It seems that Arabie made her 15-year-old daughter sell all of Arabie’s Xanax pills for $5 a pop. The girl did sell some but police picked her up on a curfew violation and returned her to Arabie after seizing the remainder of the pills. When the girl told Arabie that she didn’t sell all of the pills Arabie beat her with a belt and some form of metal object.
The girl told authorities about the abuse while she was being treated at the hospital for her injuries.
Maybe if mom actually took the Xanax she wouldn’t be such a violent witch.

Mom deals cocaine with toddler in tow:
First off take a look at that mugshot. Can you believe she’s only 26-years-old? You have to wonder what she did to her own body to look twice her age.
Anyway that’s 26-year-old Casey Lee Dudley of Port Charlotte, Florida. She was arrested for dealing coke out of her house. Police say that she sold coke to undercover detectives twice. Once while her one-year-old daughter was around and another time when a three-year-old was there.
Detectives say they found 2.0 grams of powder cocaine, numerous plastic baggies, a digital scale, and four plastic straws, all with cocaine residue.
They also found Roxicodone pills in her purse.
What’s Roxicodone? Is that like Oxycodone for Scooby Doo?
No word if the kids have been removed from the home.

CPS Seizes Kids After DPD Makes Shocking Discovery:
19-year-old Sofia Morales and 27-year-old Alberto Solis were arrested by Dallas, TX police on child endangerment and drug charges. Police noticed the smell of weed coming out of their SUV. In the SUV police found a five-month-old boy still strapped in the car seat under a pile of clothes. Morales allegedly came running from the house she was in yelling “That’s my baby and truck!” Police say the baby was “motionless, covered in blisters, sores and bandages.” She claimed the baby has a rare skin disease.
Anyway, the pair were allegedly in a house selling and using drugs when police were searching the SUV. When their home was searched they found two rifles, meth, and weed in the house along with two more kids ages 3 and 4.
When asked about the meth Solis reportedly said “I have the ice to make some money for my family.”
Here’s a thought. Instead of dealing drugs to make money for your family how about…oh I don’t know…GETTING A FREAKING JOB.
Thanks to Carrie for the tip.
Veteran cop unmasked as a major marijuana dealer:
When I was but a lad in my 20’s I wanted to be a cop. I had cops as friends, I have cops as relatives, and I wanted to make a difference. However two things prevented me from doing so. One, I didn’t possess the physical prowess it took to pass the physical test and two, I heard too many stories of guys who were just in it to collect a paycheck or worse. This one of the stories about worse.
37-year-old Glen Smokler was a 13-year-veteran of the NYPD. He was arrested this past Wednesday and uncovered as a major marijuana dealer. He allegedly belonged to a ring that smuggled millions of dollars in reefer from Canada to Long Island. Police were tipped off when someone reported that Smokler robbed from the ring leaders.
Apparently he never figured that even criminals call the cops sometimes.
