Maryland Woman Kayla Messinese, 24, was arrested Friday in suburban Philadelphia trying to deliver 100 pounds of weed — worth about $200,000, according to police — and from the sound of things on her social media the coronavirus had her all out of whack leading up to her felony arrest. “Dispensary is running out of weed, Dunkin closed down….this is a f-cking nightmare,” Kayla tweeted on March 31. Over on Facebook, she was complaining about how her ‘business’ was being crippled by corona.
It’s unclear what business Kayla is talking about on the Facebook post. All of that doesn’t matter at this point because the fuzz caught her with duffel bags.
Kayla Messinese, 24, of Edgewater, Md., faces felony charges of possession with intent to deliver, criminal use of a communication facility and related drug charges.
A joint investigation into large-scale drug trafficking by the Upper Merion Township Police Department Special Investigations Unit and the Montgomery County Detective Bureau determined that the defendant would be travelling to Upper Merion Township April 3, to deliver 100 pounds of high-grade marijuana, according to a release issued by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.
“This investigation determined that the defendant was going to use the COVID-19 emergency as an opportunity to traffic a large amount of marijuana, traveling several hours to King of Prussia to make the transaction,” said Montgomery County DA Kevin Steele.
