Crime Tip: It’s unwise to sell marijuana to pay police academy tuition
While police officers arrest pot dealers fairly frequently, Orem police officers heard a pretty unusual reason for the illegal activity during an arrest this weekend.
The 20-year-old man said he was dealing the drugs to save up for the police academy.
“It’s probably not the first time this has happened, but this is the first time I’ve heard of someone admitting it,” said Orem Sgt. Craig Martinez. “Most drug dealers wouldn’t say they were trying to save up to become a cop.”
