Fisherman Claims Parks and Wildlife Sold Him Cocaine
You never know what you'll see when you scroll through the press releases from Texas Parks and Wildlife. Visiting TPWD.Texas.gov lets you scroll through the various law enforcement reports from around the state.
Today we found the story of a fisherman in Willacy County who insists the State of Texas sold him cocaine when he purchased his fishing license. No, seriously.
A Willacy County game warden on patrol at Fred Stone Pier in Port Mansfield asked a fisherman if he could have a look at that person's fishing license. The man quickly produced his fishing license, but when he went to remove it from the handy protective plastic pouch, out fell a bag of white powder. The fisherman/suspect was arrested for possession of a controlled substance.
The fisherman insists he had just purchased the license and that it was given to him in the protective pouch with the cocaine inside.
