Arab police arrest man after finding marijuana-laced breakfast cereal during traffic stop

ARAB, AL (WAFF) - Arab police have arrested a man because they didn’t like his idea for breakfast.

Blake Boyles of Baileyton is charged with drug trafficking and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Arab police say it’s not too unusual to see marijuana put in brownies, but in cereal, that’s a first for them.

“What they call the traffic stop. Everybody says they’re routine. Obviously they never are,” said Arab Police Chief Ed Ralston.

And the traffic stop made along Hulaco Road just after midnight Sunday morning wasn’t routine.

Ralston says Boyles was stopped near Naples Lane.

An inquisitive officer received consent to search the vehicle and that's when they found two pounds of marijuana, brass knuckles, a large amount of cash, two giant baking pans filled with Fruit Loops and Chocolate Rice Krispies.

“Both of the pans of snacks had been drizzled with the marijuana. So in turn they say that’s pretty potent by doing it that way so now that what could have been a misdemeanor is now a felony,” said Ralston.

Boyles has since been released from the Marshall County Jail on $3,500 bond.
