Man arrested over barter mishap


Recommended Posts

A New Zealand man who tried to barter marijuana for snacks overlooked one important problem - a policeman was standing right behind him.

Wade Churchward, 28, paid a late-night visit to a Wellington petrol station to buy chocolates and crisps.

When - with the sweets half-eaten - he realised he had no money, he offered the cashier 12g of marijuana and a pipe for smoking it.

But he failed to notice the police car outside and the officer next in line.

The policeman promptly arrested the mechanic who, the Dominion Post said, had been drinking.

On Monday he pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis and other unrelated charges, the newspaper said, and will be sentenced on 3 July.
