Police Seize Meth in Punxsutawney House

I’m not condoning possessing or attempting to sell crystal methamphetamine, but after seeing the picture below, I can certainly understand it.

It must be humiliating to be lifted like this in front of thousands of people and then having your picture viewed by millions of people all over the world. Apparently, Punxsutawney Phil goes by Gene Rees on the 364 days a year other than Groundhog Day. Rees "was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance. Police said they found approximately 1.5 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, $63,000 in cash, nine guns and drug paraphernalia."

Just remember: Don’t drive angry!

The story was published in Tuesday’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Think that's bad...You should see Gene Reese in person. His eyes are like a rat's...and he never washes his underwear. (true story---Nora Stutzman, his convict girlfriend told me).

He's doin 8 to 10 years. Seems like it should be much more, but he knew the right people....including the mayor's brother.
