Because nothing is sacred and your childhood was basically one giant fraud, it should come as no surprise that an actor named John R. Morales who made a living dressing up as Scruff McGruff, the Crime Dog, was just sentenced to 16 years in prison for drug possession.
After being pulled over for speeding in Galveston, Texas, police (and, ironically, drug-sniffing dogs) found diagrams of indoor pot-growing operations on the front seat and multiple pot seeds stored in his trunk. After a raid on his home, authorities discovered:
- 1,000 marijuana plants
- 9,000 rounds of ammunition
- 27 weapons, includingA GRENADE LAUNCHER
Morales insisted that he was nonviolent, but U.S. District Judge Vanessa Gilmore stated that, “Everything I read about you makes you seem like a scary person," and sentenced him harshly, effectively taking a bite out of crime.
And just for fun, let's see if you can all remember this random Chicago zip code/let's see how many Saturday morning cartoons you watched as a kid...
Chicago, Illinois _ _ _ _ _
and help take a bite out of crime.
Now you totally remember it, don't you?
