Innocence lost: Police bust man who sold pot from ice cream truck

MISSION TEXAS —An ice cream truck driver here was arrested recently after a number of elementary school students told police he was selling them, er, pot-sicles.

Instead of hawking traditional frozen treats, Raymundo Flores, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, reportedly sold $5 and $10 bags of marijuana from his truck to third-, fourth- and fifth-graders, the Associated Press reported. —An ice cream truck driver here was arrested recently after a number of elementary school students told police he was selling them, er, pot-sicles.

Though police didn’t witness any sales, a drug-sniffing dog did find packets of marijuana packed next to some ice cream treats, the AP said. —An ice cream truck driver here was arrested recently after a number of elementary school students told police he was selling them, er, pot-sicles.

The truck may have been a tip-off to cops, too. While the outside featured pictures of ice cream, pendants shaped like marijuana leaves dangled inside the truck. —An ice cream truck driver here was arrested recently after a number of elementary school students told police he was selling them, er, pot-sicles.

Flores was charged with possession of marijuana and a judge set bond at $30,000.
