A routine traffic stop yielded seven pounds or marijuana and more than $84,000 cash. A Milton police officer was on patrol on Deerfield Parkway March 15 at 10:30 p.m. when he clocked a passing vehicle going 50 mph in a 35. He pulled the car over. When speaking with the driver, Monroe Le-Beau, 29, of Norcross, the officer smelled marijuana and asked Le-Beau to step out. Le-Beau then ran from the officer, leaving his 6-year-old son behind in the car. He ran in to a nearby subdivision and stopped a passing vehicle. Getting in, Le-Beau tried to force the driver to drive away. The driver refused. He got out and tried again with the same result, only this time the driver began to fight him. Le-Beau then than into nearby woods. Forsyth County police dogs were called in and quickly found him, with dogs biting him twice. Le-Beau allegedly had on him $4,475 in cash. A search of his car turned up a further $80,000 in cash and 7 pounds of pot, all vacuum-sealed in the trunk. The marijuana is valued at about $11,000. Milton police spokesman Shawn McCarty said the investigation is ongoing, but at this point they do not know what he was doing with both cash and drugs. “It’s weird for him to have that cash and that marijuana the way he has,” McCarty said. Typically, a drug dealer would have drugs to sell, but not the cash. If he had a lot of cash, he had sold his drugs. He also had a “Marijuana Grower’s Bible” in the car. Le-Beau was charged with robbery by intimidation, trafficking in illegal drugs, reckless conduct, obstruction – resisting officer / arrest, 1 count speeding, 1 count failure to maintain lane, 1 count safety belts – required usage, and 1 count driving while license suspended or revoked.

Let it never again be said that the government doesn’t care about health in the hood.
After months of research, a recommendation was handed down that the FDA probably should ban menthols. But those things make too much money for us to see that happening anytime soon.
Taking menthol cigarettes off the market would benefit public health, the Food and Drug Administration’s Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee concluded Friday after a year of reviewing the issue.
Panel members stopped short of recommending specific regulatory action by the FDA, such as banning menthol cigarettes, which are preferred by about 30% of smokers overall and 80% of African-American smokers. Minty menthol has been the only cigarette flavor on the market since Congress gave the FDA regulatory authority over tobacco products in 2009.
Although scientific evidence doesn’t suggest menthol cigarettes are more likely to cause smoking-related illnesses than regular cigarettes, their availability probably increases the number of smokers in the general population, particularly African Americans and youths, the committee said in its final report. One contributing factor is manufacturers’ marketing of menthol cigarettes, the report said.
In addition, the report said, African Americans find it more difficult to quit smoking menthol cigarettes than non-menthol cigarettes, the committee said.
“None of us know what the FDA will do,” committee Chairman Jonathan Samet, a preventive medicine professor at the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine, said after the panel met at the agency’s headquarters.

We knew they were serious about their burritos in Texas… and their guns… but this is just crazy!
A San Antonio man went beserk at a Taco Bell/KFC when he found out the restaurant raised the price of his precious Beefy Crunch Burritos by $.50.
Restaurant manager Brian Tillerson, 41, said his employees told him a customer was upset about the price of the Beefy Crunch Burrito.
“They did use to be 99 cents, but that was just a promotion,” Tillerson said. “He pointed a gun at me, and he fired it. I leaned to the side and there was a pop but nothing happened.”
Tillerson said the police later found a BB, but the following five minutes “were pretty crazy,” he said.
Looking out the windows, he said he saw the man put an assault rifle and a handgun on the roof of his Mitsubishi Eclipse. Customers dove under their tables, the employees scrambled to the back and Tillerson ran to the front to lock the doors as he called police.
The man then jumped into his vehicle and took off, Tillerson said.
Fewer than two miles away, at W.W. White Road and Hershey Drive, officers spotted the suspect and three patrol units pulled over the car, Benavides said. As the officers got out of their cars, the man got out of his car carrying the assault rifle in his hands and pointing it at the officers.
Both sides began firing, Benavides said, but no one was hit. However, one of the windshields on a patrol car was shattered.
From there, the man sped off to the Rodeway Inn in the 200 block of North W.W. White Road just a few blocks away from Interstate 10.
It was about 3 p.m., and the man refused to come out.
Sharpshooters climbed up on the roof of the Sky Line Food Mart next to the motel. Police blocked off W.W. White in both directions. They evacuated some nearby businesses and some of the rooms in the motel.
Through a megaphone the negotiator could be heard telling the man to pick up the phone.
“No one needs to get hurt,” the negotiator said.
Around 6:30 p.m., and without a reply from the man inside, SWAT used tear gas to clear the room, Benavides said. The man came out without incident.
Tillerson, calm and back at work after giving a statement to police, said after hearing that the customer shot at officers he was even more relieved he didn’t get into his restaurant.
“The weird thing is,” Tillerson said, “He was here a week ago around the same time last Sunday. He yelled at me then too.”
The man, whose name was not released because he had not been charged, faces three attempted capital murder charges for the exchange of gunfire with police plus possible other charges, said police spokesman Sgt. Chris Benavides. No one was injured in the incident.
