In America, drug dealers will do whatever is necessary to get away from law enforcement officers attempting to bring the heat down, but in Australia, they just throw weed… and lots of it.
Earlier this week, police in Sydney say they were running an unrelated secret operation in the vicinity of Bathurst Street, when they spotted a couple of suspicious hooligan-types walking out of a nearby office building carry several large boxes.
Now, it is not known exactly why the Aussie authorities decided to harass the men and investigate the elusive contents of their packages, but when they did, approaching them matter-of-factly with some cop-dialogue like, “Morning mates, what’s in the boxes?” The two men violently hurled the packages at the officers and made a desperate run for it.
According to reports, the boxes contained nearly 10 kilograms of marijuana, sealed in bags of various sizes, with an estimated value of about $80,000. So, it is no wonder these boys made the decision to flee: in some parts of Australia, a person caught with 100 grams of marijuana can face fines of up to $20,000 and two years in prison. These men would have likely been tarred and feathered for their equivalent of 10,000 grams.
Of course, we do not have to tell you that this is the part in the story where police engaged the two cannabis slinging culprits in a high-speed foot pursuit that led to officers getting into an old-fashioned street brawl with the slower of the two men, while the other reportedly hauled enough ass to never be seen or heard from again.
A spokesperson for the Sydney police department says that the man cops did apprehend was charged with assaulting police, resisting arrest, supplying cannabis and three outstanding warrants -- he was refused bail.
