It doesn’t pay to run from the long arm of the law.
A 26-year-old Fargo, N.D., man is facing multiple charges after he floored a 2006 Corvette he was driving and was subsequently pulled over Moorhead Police.
Police originally just stopped Thomas Schultz for driving at a high rate of speed at Eighth Street South and Main Avenue about 9 p.m. Tuesday.
That’s when they discovered he didn’t have a license and furthermore that the Corvette was not registered.
More bad news for Schultz came when the car was searched before being towed and officers discovered 4.25 pounds of marijuana and nearly $10,000 in cash in the vehicle.
Now Schultz is behind bars in the Clay County Jail facing a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance, not to mention counts of reckless driving, driving without a license and failing to register the car.
“This is just another example of a very large quantity in possession of one individual, 4.25 lbs., initiated through a traffic stop,” said Lt. Torey Jacobson of the Moorhead Police Department, “so clearly something we’re seeing more and more of, sometimes daily.”
