A carnival worker from Texas was arrested for having crack cocaine shipped
to his address inside a doll. The 55-year-old individual was arrested
during the Sioux Empire Fair in Sioux Falls after the authorities intercepted
his package containing the doll.
The children's toy was stuffed with 37 grams of drugs that are worth
more than $3,000 on the street. The carnival worker was foreman of the
children's rides at the fair. Police believe that they have even more
information against the defendant based on evidence that they discovered
in his truck. Another man who picked up the package told authorities that
he was running an errand for the defendant.
The defendant's attorney argues that her client never even saw the
doll, and therefore can't be held responsible for its contents. Also,
the attorney argues that others live in the defendant's truck at certain
times, and the drug paraphernalia that was discovered inside the vehicle
may not be his.
The individual who smuggled the crack cocaine to the fairgrounds in the
doll can also be charged with drug smuggling if he or she is located.
