12 joints is A LOT of pot.

I've read the reports on both CM Life and The Morning Sun so let me see if I've got the story straight here. The explanations aren't very clear, but I'll just give it a whirl.

On June 7, Andrew Flory and Ryan Oruche went to Walmart and stole about $500 worth of snacks and DVDs. Who needs $500 worth of movies and snacks? Did they buy all six seasons of Big Bang Theory, all eight parts to the Harry Potter saga, Frozen, five boxes of Cheez-Its and three loaves of bread?

Junior wide receiver Andrew Flory, 21, was charged with two counts of second-degree retail fraud and one count of possession of marijuana, according to Isabella County Trial Court records. Defensive back Ryan Oruche, 21, was charged with one count of unarmed robbery and two counts of second-degree retail fraud. Flory was arraigned June 20. Oruche was arraigned June 10.

State trooper Mike Zeilinger talked to both of Flory and Oruche. Oruche said that he and Flory both stole items, while Flory gave the old 'Nope, didn't do it" runaround. Video surveillance says otherwise.

After watching said surveillance tape, Zeilinger went to Flory's residence to arrest him. This is the best part.

When Flory asked permission to put on some clothes Zeilinger followed him into his bedroom and noticed 12 partially smoked marijuana joints on top of a laptop. Flory admitted the marijuana was his and that he did not have a medical marijuana card, Zeilinger’s affidavit said.

TWELVE JOINTS? Who smokes twelve joints? I doubt he smoked all twelve of them by himself in one sitting, but holy smokes, that's a lot of roaches to just leave on top of your freaking laptop. And I'm no expert on these sorts of things, but don't you just throw them away when you're done? I've been in some disgusting apartments in plenty of college towns these past four years, but I have never seen twelve roaches just laying on somebody's laptop.

But seriously, those joints had to have been smoked before stealing $500 worth of movies and munchies.

Oruche is being charged with two misdemeanor counts of second degree retail fraud, which both carry one-year sentences and/or $2,000 fines, and one felony count of unarmed robbery which is a 15-year felony.

Flory is charged with two misdemeanor counts of second degree retail fraud and one count of marijuana possession. He would have one count of retail fraud dropped as part of his plea deal offered Tuesday.

This one is definitely up there with the one time a pair of CMU player got caught selling mushrooms.
