This must have seemed like a good excuse at the time

An AP story reported in this morning's Chicago Sun-Times:
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- A man who police say was caught with two pounds of marijuana allegedly told officers the drug wasn't his because he stole it.

Linn County Attorney Harold Denton said it doesn't matter how Bradley Robison, 18, got the marijuana -- only that he had it. "If you steal it, you steal it and you possess it," Denton said. "It's a double whammy."
Well, yes: Isn't possession nine-tenths of the law?

What a great comment; I'm sure the police had a good laugh to themselves.
