From The Smoking Gun.
Feel-Good Story: Duo Reunited With Bong Lost Seven Years Ago
Following a traffic stop this morning, Matthew Hawley and Mark Fiasco, both 23, were busted after a search of Hawley’s 1998 Mercury turned up nearly 30 grams of marijuana.
That, of course, is the bad news.
However, the Florida duo’s felony collars did come with a silver lining. During the vehicle search, Bradenton Police Department officers found a bong in the car’s trunk that both men (pictured above) said had been missing for seven years.
The $150 bong was one of two that the men purchased from a Sarasota glass blower back when they were in high school, Hawley told cops. The other bong, he added, “had been broken by [Fiasco’s] brother while engaged in sexual intercourse.”
Fiasco, who admitted to plans to “smoke the shit out” of pot found in the car, told an officer that he “had been looking for the bong for the last 7 years” and was “pleased” that investigators located it.
Fiasco, a cop reported, “was under the assumption that an old roommate had stolen it.” A photo on Fiasco’s MySpace page (titled “SMOKE ONE”) shows him smoking what appears to be a Kingston-sized monster spliff.
The bong, which was inside a plastic bag, was tested for marijuana residue, but the results “did not obtain positive results.”
Police reports do not offer insight as to how the custom-made item remained undiscovered for so long.
Both men were booked into the Manatee County jail on felony drug possession charges.
But we're too lazy to find out for sure
I'm too lazy to turn the car around, but I'll yank this hose so hard that it rips from the pump
I kinda like this idea
Guess no one volunteered that day
I think we have a winner
Yeah, I'm climbing on that.
