45 year old man, David E. Brady, from Albany New York was caught with items that looked like narcotics during a four day festival called Bonnaroo Music and Arts.
Officers Busted him with a stash of 1,000 fake drugs within the first day of the festival. When asked about what he was doing with the fake drugs, Brady said that he “was doing God’s work by selling fake drugs.”
Brady acted very suspicious with the drugs, tossing them behind him when the deputies approached him. He even had a bag of mushrooms hanging from his waist.
He had 20 bags of what appeared to be cocaine, an incense stick which was disguised to look like black tar heroin, 1,000 doses of fake acid, 32 bags of fake mushrooms and 37 pills that look like they were “molly,” which is a synthetic mind altering drug.
Brady was arrested for possessing counterfeit controlled substances.
Brady is also wanted in Arkansas for a felony, so he was also charged with being a fugitive from justice. Arkansas plans to now extradite him.
