Store Prank Backfires; 2 Men Jailed

Joke Man Plays on His Mom at a Neb. Store Backfires; 2 Men Arrested for Drug Possession
The Associated Press

LA VISTA, Neb. Nov 30, 2004 — A joke a man played on his mom went to pot. A 22-year-old man walked into a gas station on Sunday and told the clerk that he had a gun. The clerk wasn't worried because she was his mother.

According to a police account, another customer overheard the man and, not knowing it was a joke, called authorities. Upon arriving at the station, officers found the prankster and a friend in the parking lot.

The officers smelled marijuana, and a search turned up a quarter-pound of pot and hundreds of dollars in cash. The men were arrested for drug possession.

The two men are on parole and knew they would be sent back to prison for a conviction. In a phone call, one of them asked a girlfriend to tell police that the marijuana was hers.


The woman agreed and went to the police station and said the pot was hers. But police knew the story was false because the men's call to the woman was recorded.

She was arrested for false reporting.
