Police: Jiffy Lube Manager Busted On Pot Charge

The manager of a Greenville Jiffy Lube is accused of possessing marijuana for sale behind the business.

Justin Butts of Farmville is charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police say they went to the Jiffy Lube Sunday afternoon on South Memorial Drive after they received information that someone may be selling drugs behind the business from a green Toyota Corolla. Police say they found the vehicle, which is owned by Butts.

They say after detecting an odor of marijuana on Butts, officers called for a K-9 unit for help. The drug dog alerted on the rear of the car and police then found packaged marijuana taped under the vehicle.

Bond for the 24-year-old was set at $5,000.

    This must be a very bored newspaper. North Carolina has "condional release" (he does not exceed) NC is decriminalized state (he does not exceed), NC is an active Hemp producing state. NC also is a Tax Stamp state which means you can buy a TAXED STAMP, here's the details: http://www.norml.org/index.cfm?Group_ID=6670 A GOOD DOCUMENTARY would be called "The Union: Business Behind Getting High. This article and time/space is exactly what it's about. The money circle. Marijuana is legal here in pill form called Marinol. It's given to cancer patients, as well as legal in (I believe) it's up to 13 states for medcinal use. Michigan the last state is legalized 63% votes on proposal 9, and if you'll notice NC did not have the vote nor the option or this would not be a problem for this boy. But then again, there's money in that state, a lot more than here. This is why this article made the paper. It made them money. Just know your rights, and we the people can fix a lot of err's in the USA.

    Talk about being judged , how do you know this guy wasn't set up to begin with ? Anybody could have taped that stuff to his car and made a call, or drop a dime , whatever you want to call it . Maybe someone's trying to get his job !

    It does not matter he committed a crime and should be punish. He has a job and did not need to sell anything. Some people don't have a job and have to make ends meed the best way they can and they get in trouble.

    "confidentail and reliable informant"...I know enough about spelling to know that if you had a background in Law Enforcement you might be able to spell the word confidential correctly "Again Ellie Mae". I also know that most of these "reliable" informants are other law breakers who have been caught and are trying to save their own butt by selling someone out. if you object to law breaking so much how can you describe someone who is trading info or doing buys with marked bills to get out of charges as "reliable"? Sorry but blindly accepting a law is right simply because it is a law in an excuse not to think for yourself. Think about how many laws have been repealed or changed over the years.

    I was at this store 3 weekends ago on Saturday at about 5:00 pm. All 3 bays were full and 2 cars were in line. I am a frequent customer there and Mr Butts told me he would have me in within 10 minutes or sooner, which was done. Even though he was short handed with only one other person there,( his 3:00 man was a no-show and his man that was supposed to get off at 3:00 stayed till 5:00 ) the two of them were well organized and they worked diligently together with each helping the other as needed. I was impressed with Mr Butts attitude and work ethic. I still got the full service right down to vacuuming the carpet and was well done within an hour from arrival. Whether these charges are true or not I have had excellent service from Mr Butts and would highly recommend him to anyone that wants good service with reliability and courtesy.

    I love how all the commentors affiliated with law enforcement get so bent out of shape on these sites. "It's illegal," "Shut-up." Law don't mind bending the rules for their own. You should go to a law enforcement convention or bachelor party. There are exceptions, but a large fraction of them are exactly what is described below. Can't make a decent argument so they tell you to shut up. Bust'n jiffy lube guy make you feel like a big man?
