Police were probably very surprised on June 8th, when 71-year-old James King of Danbury, Connecticut, walked into the police station and told them about all the drugs in his car.

It seems that, prior to King deciding to go chat with police, he had found out that there was a warrant out for his arrest. And once this convicted criminal found out that the fuzz was out looking for him (he was on parole at the time), he just sort of decided “Okay, you got me.”

So he drove to the police station and turned himself in. Then he told his parole officer that he had drugs in his car. Like, a lot of drugs. Like, so much that there is no way they could be for personal use and have him still be alive. He even told officers exactly where to look in his car.


Wait, seriously?

When the police looked, they found 49 packets of heroin. Police, probably shocked at what has to be the easiest drug arrest in history, went back inside and gave King four charges, including the sale of illegal drugs, possession of narcotics, passion of drugs within 1,500 feet of a school, and distribution of a controlled substance within 1,500 feet of a school.
