Von Powell - Called 911 To Report Stolen Marijuana, Couldn’t Remember His Own Address


Audio Of 911 Call

Gainesville, FL (The Weekly Vice) – Von Powell, a 22-year-old Gainesville man called 911 to report that he was robbed of his small stash of marijuana and some cash.

According to police, Powell was sitting in his living room around 2:45 a.m. smoking a “blunt“ and having a beer when two armed men burst through his front door.

One of the men hit him in the head with a firearm. The men then took three to four grams of pot and $800 from his pocket.

Powell then ran out of his apartment. He states that he saw the two men leave in a dark-colored vehicle.

Investigators state that 45 minutes later 911 received a call from Powell. He stated that he had been robbed at gunpoint and that he wasn’t exactly sure what his address was. Police found him driving around his Greenleaf neighborhood. (seriously….that really is the name of the neighborhood!)

Powell states that the reason it took him 45 minutes to call the police is because he did not have a phone and had to borrow one from neighbors. Police believe he feared what might happen to happen to him if he reported the crime.

Powell was not arrested for possession of marijuana. Police state that there was a lack of evidence (presumably because his stash was stolen). The two armed robbers are still at large.

LOL... you are right Ida, my wife and I make a very good living, but I don't walk around with that much cash in my pocket. If I had to guess I would say he is into pharmaceutical sales.

Valid medicinal value, it’s a victimless crime, the War on Drugs WAY too costly, too many arrests for simple possession, tax it and use the money to pay for health insurance and to reduce the deficit…Need I say more?

RFWoodstock, I don't think this is a debate over how pathetic the war on drugs is.

It's a debate on how utterly stupid one individual can be.
