    Drugs suspected in treats given to Texas police By ANGELA K. BROWN, Associated Press Writer
    Tue Jul 8, 7:40 PM ET



    A teenager is suspected of delivering baskets of drug-laced treats to about a dozen police departments in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, according to police who charged him Tuesday with LSD possession. At least three officers have gotten sick.

    The 18-year-old man was arrested after taking cookies to the Lake Worth police station, said Brett McGuire, the suburb's police chief. Officers there had been tipped off that someone was falsely claiming to deliver treats on behalf of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

    "Our officers took a good whiff and thought they smelled like marijuana," McGuire said, adding that preliminary tests instead detected traces of LSD.

    Christian Phillips was taken into custody and later charged with possession of the powerful hallucinogen, although the charge may be changed, McGuire said.

    The suspect denied trying to contaminate the goodies or harm anyone and said one of his friends might have been smoking pot while Phillips was baking, McGuire said. The suspect is not affiliated with MADD, the chief said.

    Phillips remained jailed in Lake Worth pending an arraignment Wednesday. Bail had not been set, and he did not have an attorney yet, McGuire said.

    In Fort Worth, at least three officers got sick after eating some cookies and candy from a basket delivered to that police station Monday night, authorities said.

    Police there are conducting tests and plan to file charges if LSD or another drug or chemical is found in the food, said Lt. Paul Henderson.

    Lake Worth investigators found that Phillips had a list of about two dozen police departments in north Texas, with 13 checked off, McGuire said. It's unclear whether anyone else got sick because some deliveries were made in the past week.

    Police in Blue Mound found traces of marijuana in the treats, he said. Blue Mound police tipped off Lake Worth after receiving a call from MADD that no one was delivering cookies on its behalf.
    What a moron if those treats have narcotics in them he be in a world of trouble

    Gee whizz I always eat cookies baked by total strangers because I am such a trusting person.

    I especially love the free ones that they put out in my bank...when the homeless alcoholic wearing his 5 years of urine stained pants reaches into his pocket to have the teller give him change for a soggy five dollar bill and then he walks over and rearranges all of the cookies on the tray (with hands that have not been washed in at least a month) before he decides which ones he is going to choose for himself.
    Those are always extra tasty!

    What is interesting is they opened up the story with "A teenager" but then point out he is 18. Um, nope, he is an ADULT and made an adult screwup, don't minimalize his wrongdoing by calling him a teenager.

    +1 Paco. I think he ate a few too many of his own cookies.

    For those of you old enough to remember, there was Alice B. Toklas who notoriously baked cannabis brownies.

    I agree he should be charged as an adult... but in the literal sense of the word... Eighteen is still technically a teenager! As well as 19!

    A long time ago I was told not to EVER eat food that I could not account for, when working as an LEO.

    I heard on this on the radio this morning. I will provide a link to a story as soon as I find one.

    UPDATE: On further examination, the cookies DID NOT contain any illegal or illicit substance. The suspect truly was a representative from MADD trying to show his appreciation for the police.

    Good thing courts don't rely on cops noses for sniffing out drugs or PC since a buncha cops thought the cookies smelled like they had drugs in them,maybe it was oregano lol,on the other hand when I was an LEO we only accepted baked goods from people we knew,IE officers wives,mothers,too many things can happen,granny mighta got a ticket so she decides to bake an arsenic cake to get even
