“Last night a resident of our Stone County posted a catalyst converter for sale on the marketplace. Apparently he must have been under his influence because he left a large bag of meth and syringes on the coffee table in the background of the picture he posted,” Sheriff Doug Rader said in a Sept. 29 post.
Radar said he was alerted about the post by a citizen and passed the information to a spy.
“Today we arrived at this gentleman’s house with a search warrant. You can imagine his surprise !! He still had 48 grams of meth and a pistol which he is forbidden to own! We have now provided him with a new place to live. Sorry friends, his catalyst. The converters are not currently for sale, “the sheriff’s post said.
“Remember, if you’re selling things on social media, make sure your drugs aren’t in the background!” Sheriff Radar added to the post.
James Anthony Kurtz was held in the county jail without any restrictions, Sherry Rowe, the sheriff’s office’s criminal data technician, told CNN.
She confirmed that Kurtz was the same person mentioned in the sheriff’s Facebook post.
