STURGEON BAY — The musty smell of a man's money led to his arrest on possible drug charges. The 21-year-old Sturgeon Bay man tried to deposit money smelling of marijuana at a bank here last week, according to a Sturgeon Bay police report obtained by the Door County Advocate.

The $4,000 in bundled bills did not smell like burned marijuana but had a musty odor of ground sweet leaves, the report said.

The smell was so strong and distinct that a teller put the cash in a plastic bag. Sturgeon Bay police tested it for marijuana, and it came back positive, the report said.

The man was arrested when he returned to the bank to make a withdrawal. Police later found bagged marijuana at the man's home.

"All the pieces just came together," Police Chief Dan Trelka said.

The man is being held in the county jail on a probation violation, while the Door County district attorney's office reviews his case. It will be up to the district attorney to file formal charges.

Sounds like a bunch of merely circumstancial evidence that really proves nothing. The cannabis in his home could be totally unrelated. ALL the money in the US will test positive for cocaine and other drugs including marijuana. The smell of cannabis on some cash he has doesn't prove that the smell got on the cash because of him. It only proves the smell is on the cash. The finding of cannabis at his house shouldn't be admissable because the money smelling like cannabis doesn't neccassarily implicate him of a crime. Not even possession because ALL money has drug residue on it. How many bills you figure have been used to roll jpints? How many have been used to snort coke?

What it all boils down to is he had $4K cash that smelled like drugs, and the government controls the drugs, so they needed to get a hold of this fella. As we all well know cannabis is merely an herb. Just a regular old plant.

Police officers acquitted for beating a 64 yr old man recently in New Orleans. In the words of their defense attorney "all he had to do was comply"....and they wouldn't have fractured his face.
