Cops bust people in car watching video about avoiding gettting busted

Gary says:
A group of men were watching a video (Barry Cooper's Never Get Busted Again: Volume 1 - Traffic Stops) in a vehicle on how to grow pot and transport it without getting caught when they were caught by authorities themselves.

It happened in Marysville, California when four men in a stolen truck were pulled over because the pickup didn’t have mud flaps. The four men were watching the instructional video on a DVD player mounted on the dashboard at the time.

Officers then discovered about 90 pounds of marijuana in garbage bags in the back of the truck.

Moral of the story: Buy Barry Cooper's Never Get Busted Again: Volume 1 - Traffic Stops and watch it at home before transporting the pot!



  1. Man, sometimes you just know you’re going to see a story again in News of the Weird…this is definitely one of those times.

  2. The paranoid in me suggests that it’s the police who produced the “Never Get Busted Again” video, offered it for sale by mail order, then went looking for the people who ordered it.

    On the other hand, I also have a case of the munchies right now.

    What were we talking about?

  3. Now i’m only a casual abuser of drugs but if you have 90 pounds of weed laying around one would think you could afford mudflaps? or your own vehicle even?

  4. There’s a LOT of writing on the interwebs discussing the irresponsible and occasionally-dimwitted nature of the folks selling these videos… some folks even seem to believe the sellers to be undercover. As one of the last non-smokers, I find it all incredibly hilarious and dramatic.

  5. “Not having mudflaps is a pull-overable offense in CA?”

    It is when the mudflaps are missing off a stolen truck with 90 pounds of marijuana in garbage bags in the back.*

    * Cop humor.

  6. Also, having a DVD video player in a location where it’s visible to the driver while driving is illegal in California.

  7. I thought the same thing about the mudflaps. (That is, “WTF?”) But I suspect it was a semi, in which case the mudflaps are protective devices for the other vehicles on the road. The back wheels of a semi have no fenders to keep rocks and debris from slinging off the tires.

    That’s just a guess, though.

  8. As a side note, that video is horrible. I watched a copy which I thankfully did not purchase. It actually tells people to let cops search their car if they have dope in it! Pretty much every respected legal authority would advise to never consent to a search.

    Furthermore, at least some copies of it were sent out with labeling indicating what was inside. Oh, and to fuel the paranoid, it is not possible to buy it in a private fashion (like with a money order), you must use a credit card (as of when I checked it out).

    Of course this is rather ironic, and frankly I hope the thieves get a nice long jail sentence for stealing some poor sap’s vehicle. I don’t care much about the dope though… laws against plants are about as dumb as these crooks.

  9. The police presumably pulled them over on an equipment and moving violation for the mudflaps and DVD player, then realized the car was stolen when they ran the plates, which made them bother with searching the vehicle (which they could have legally done anyway as a Terry stop but probably weren’t suspicious enough to mess with otherwise), and that’s probably when the cop looked at the label on the disc.

  10. There is a possibility the sods only stole the truck minus mud-flaps, the DVD and the dried plants. They started watching the inserted when the cops framed in.
