Police Stupid State: Couple spends month in jail for homemade soap
Dec 17, 2013 | RT America

A couple in Pennsylvania has spent the last month behind bars after police pulled them over for speeding. The state trooper smelled marijuana, asked to search the car and subsequently arrested Annadel Cruz and Alexander Bernstein upon discovering two bricks of a powdery, white substance in the car. Bernstein said it was homemade soap, but the trooper determined the substance was cocaine via a special field test. Cruz and Bernstein were unable to post bail of $500,000, so remained in jail for a month. Charges were finally dropped when lab testing proved the substance was, in fact, homemade soap. RT's Ameera David speaks with the couple's lawyer, James Heidecker, about the case and why the couple was pulled over in the first place.
