After a months long undercover investigation, D.C. police finally took down a man who had been blatantly flouting the city’s marijuana distribution laws.
Nicholas Cunningham, 30, and Evonne Lidoff, 18, operated three vehicles throughout the district where they would sell pot brownies in exchange for “donations” from patrons. Police arrested them Tuesday on marijuana distribution charges.
New charging documents released by police detail exactly how they brought down the pair after they sold undercover police marijuana and marijuana laced edibles, NBC 4 reports. The documents show that an under cover officer approached Cunningham in October and asked about buying marijuana laced cupcakes. Cunningham told the officer the cupcakes wouldn’t be a problem.
Then, five days later, the under cover cop texted Cunningham to inquire about some weed treats. The two met up later down town and the officer gave Cunningham $200 for a dozen brownies. Those brownies, police said, tested positive for THC. Police said the under cover officer bought more pot brownies from Cunningham several times after the initial purchase, and regular marijuana at least twice.
Cunningham faces four charges of drug distribution, while Lidoff received citations for possession and distribution. Both pleaded not guilty at an initial court appearance Tuesday.
Cunningham seemed completely unfazed by the arrest and seizure of his vehicles, though. He told DCist he’s “not really worried about it too much.”
“The [cars] might be seized until my court date, but I’m thinking of buying a new one,” he told the website.
