Hialeah Gardens Cop Lawrence Perez Shows How Drugs Can Corrupt Police

Hialeah Gardens Cop Lawrence Perez Shows How Drugs Can Corrupt Police | BloodandButter | Scoop.it

Via Miami New Times:

 

Lawrence "Larry" Perez spots a white BMW 750Li blowing through a stop sign at the intersection of West Flagler Street and SW 62nd Avenue. It's about 20 minutes past 10 p.m. The husky, bald Hialeah Gardens police detective flips on the blue-and-red lights inside his unmarked silver Ford Fusion and pulls the Beemer over.

 

He asks the driver, Wilfredo Gonzalez, and the passenger, Danny Zequiera, for their IDs and then sniffs the air. "I smell something strange," Perez announces. "Open up the trunk."

 

Inside is a duffel bag packed with ten pounds of marijuana belonging to Zequiera. Perez arrests Gonzalez on the spot but lets Zequiera go. A few minutes later, a white tow truck with the words "Good Fellows" stamped on the door whisks the BMW away.

 

It might sound like an ordinary pot bust, but the car was never sent to an impound lot. Gonzalez was never booked into jail, and the ten pounds of pot — worth $33,000 on the street — never ended up in an evidence room...
