Stillwater corrections officer pulled over with cocaine, pot, and crack pipe
Anderson allegeldy was driving around with enough drugs for a small city when he was pulled over.
Randy Anderson, a 21-year veteran officer at the Minnesota Corrections Facility in Stillwater, could spend the rest of his life behind bars after he was pulled over with a smorgasbord of drugs and paraphernalia near Mauston, Wisconsin.
Police say Anderson, 52, had a one-hitter, 7.7 grams of pot, almost three ounces of cocaine, a scale, and a crack pipe in his vehicle.
KARE reports that the one-hitter was in plain view when Anderson was pulled over, which gave the officer probable cause to proceed with a search.
Anderson has been charged with intent to deliver cocaine, pot possession, and paraphernalia possession. The cocaine charge alone carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison.
