TSG- A South Carolina man was arrested yesterday after applying for a loan so that he could purchase methamphetamine, investigators allege.
According to a police report, Grady Carson, 58, went to a Carolina Title Loans office in Spartanburg to secure a loan against his automobile. According to its web site, the loan company provides “fast cash to deal with an unexpected expense” and charges interest rates that begin at 96 percent.
A Carolina Title Loans employee told cops that Carson–who was pacing as he filled out paperwork–told her he “needed the money to purchase meth.”
Since her manager was at another store, the worker “faxed a help letter” to the second employee, who contacted cops.
When officers arrived at the loan business, Carson was handcuffed and a search of his pockets turned up “a glass container with a off white rock like substance inside.” Carson, cops noted, “stated it was cocaine but he was not going to smoke it because he did meth.”
Carson, seen above, was charged with narcotics possession and booked into the county jail. He was released from custody around 4:40 AM today.
I believe any financial adviser would tell you not to invest a large portion of your money on a start up. You just don’t want the personal risk when a bank loan within reason can cover that for you. Well the same kind of deal should apply when it comes to trying intravenous drugs. Sure maybe you’d feel a lot safer spending money from your savings to buy multiple strains of weed but there’s not as big of a financial risk as all weed should for the most part get you high with out you spazzing out when you’re coming down from your high. I mean from the banks perspective should you be loaning money out to people who are probably looking to buy enough crystal meth to die without paying back the loan? No. But you got to at least tip your cap to the man for making a wise financial decision while his brain is thinking through a cloud of addiction.
