Informant Aids Task Force In Arresting Man Accused of Selling Marijuana

The informant set up a marijuana transaction in St. Charles on Friday; deputies were waiting for him on Fifth Street.

A St. Charles man faces a drug charge after officers found he had more than five grams of marijuana that he planned to deliver to an informant Friday.

David Curry, 24, of the 1200 block of North 2nd Street in St. Charles, was charged Monday with distributing or delivering a controlled substance.

St. Charles County Drug Task Force detectives reported that a confidential informant called Curry asked to buy two ounces of marijuana and arranged a meeting Friday at 620 South Fifth Street in St. Charles.

When Curry arrived, a St. Charles County deputy approached him in his car and smelled a strong odor of marijuana. The deputy asked him where the marijuana was located, and Curry said it was in the center console in his car, according to the Drug Task Force report.

Curry posted 10 percent of a $25,000 bond and was released from St. Charles County Corrections.

I wish Mr. Curry a speedy and complete exoneration. The prohibition of marijuana is a farce. We are a free people. It is time to start living the way our forefathers intended. Law enforcement needs to re-direct its focus on crime...to those that are REAL crimes. I was in Federal Prison for 5 years for a marijuana offense. No, it was not for simple possession. I was arrested aboard a Lockheed PV2 in Marianna, Florida...charged and convicted for conspiracy to import and distribute 12,000 pounds of marijuana. At the time, I really had no idea what I had gotten myself into...mine was an offense involving pot...the thought never occurred to me that I may actually spend years in prison for that 'indiscretion.' As my years in prison rolled by, what I did see were armed bank robbers, coming and going...while I still sat there for marijuana. Most of the bank robbers only spent 17 to 24 months. But, I and my fellow 'drug offenders,'...we stayed for YEARS. I wrote about the escapades that led to my incarceration. I admit, I had a great time. No one was injured, no one was killed, firearms were not involved...there were no victims. We were Americans...doing what Americans do best...living free. Truly, it is time for this lunacy to end...it never should have begun. My book: Shoulda Robbed a Bank It is about living free. I would be honored by your review.

All card-carrying members of the DEA need to read: Shoulda Robbed a Bank Here is one of its reviews: 5.0 out of 5 stars... If David Sedaris had written 'Catcher in the Rye'..this would be it, June 30, 2012 Amazon Verified Purchase This review is from: Shoulda Robbed a Bank (Kindle Edition) I have never smoked pot in my life...nor do I ever care to. I read about this book in numerous Huffington Post comments. Thought I would read it because I know nothing about marijuana or the people involved with it. I am ecstatic that I did. Funny, Funny, Funny!!! The chapters are like short stories. Stories about unloading boats with helicopters, close encounters with law enforcement, traveling through the jungles of South America. The chapter about the author's first time smoking marijuana made me feel like I was with him...coughing. All of the characters were just a group of loveable, nice guys and girls. Not what I had been raised to believe...hysterical maniacs high on pot bent on death and mayhem. They were nothing like that. If you have ever read any of David Sedaris' books, and like them...you will love Shoulda Robbed a Bank. And the crazy things happening reminded me of Holden Caufield in 'Catcher in the Rye' and the way he staggered through life. The way the words are put together are like nothing I have ever heard. I am sure I will use many of the sayings found in this book just to dazzle my friends. A terrific read. I love this book.
