Peanut Butter Jar Safes Are Not So Safe

Friday, October 3, 2008

I've heard of people who use empty jars and cans to stash valuables, hiding them in their kitchens next to real food to fool thieves. This guy, however, went a bit over the top with that idea. According to the Forest City, Arkansas, Times-Herald:


A trooper with Arkansas State Police arrested a Texas man Thursday after finding drugs hidden inside a jar of peanut butter. According to an arrest report, troopers stopped Cyrus David Gharbi, 24, of Arlington, Texas, just before 1 p.m., near the 246 eastbound mile marker on Interstate 40.

The trooper stopped the vehicle after noticing that Gharbi’s license plate expired earlier this week, and during the stop, Gharbi consented to a search of the vehicle. During the search, troopers found a jar of peanut butter which contained not only peanut butter but also about 220 hydrocodone and oxycontin pills in a plastic wrapper hidden inside the jar.

real smart that one was.I would think that you would want to keep a low profile if you are carrying drugs. Like keep your plates current,watch your speed,ect,ect.

Couldn't hide drugs in peanut butter in our house - even our toddler eats it by the spoonful! The drugs would not last long at all...
