No Chewey Sprees

Taste for gummies gets man in sticky situation

ROGERSVILLE, Tenn. -- Police in Rogersville says a man's taste for gummy fruit chews landed him in a sticky situation.

The Kingsport Times-News reports Rogersville police chased 19-year-old Wesley James Hough as he fled on his motor scooter after taking a Life Savers Gummies pack valued at a little more than $1 from a Dollar General store on Monday.

Hawkins County Sheriff Roger Christian said Wednesday police found meth lab ingredients and components stashed in Hough's yellow motor scooter.

Hough was charged with promotion of manufacturing meth and theft under $500.

He remained in the Hawkins County Jail Wednesday evening on $10,000 bond, with an arraignment set for June 8.

Was he stealing the Life Savers gummy fruit chews to use to make Meth? I am a little confused as to why he is robbing the Dollar store in the 1st place. I will tell you this though the judge wasn't fucking around, $10,000 bond is NO FUCKING JOKE.
