Last month, we brought you the story of Brian Ryder, an East Stroudsburg man who used Craigslist to and the promise of marijuana to try and ply a would-be nubile young woman to have sex with him.
The cops arranged a sting and arrested him because idiotface.
You’d think he’d get released and go, “Man, I better not use Craigslist anymore to try and do drugs and chicks.”
After he was caught a second time in less than two months for trying to trade marijuana for sex, a 38-year-old East Stroudsburg man claimed he knew it was a police sting, according to court records.
“I knew it was you,” Brian Ryder (FACEBOOK PROFILE) said after his expected date turned out to be detectives with the Monroe County District Attorney’s office. “I was just messing with you guys.”
Detectives didn’t buy Ryder’s excuse and charged him Tuesday with criminal use of a communication facility and attempted possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.
On Tuesday, Ryder responded to a Craigslist ad posted by undercover detectives during a sting operation. A detective, posing as a young woman, asked to “meet and party” with men. The detective arranged a meeting with those who responded to the ad and offered drugs to the “young woman.”
“I can meet up with u later,” he wrote. “Just would rather meet u first then ill go get it from my buddy real quick. Been busted before so don’t keep on me anymore.” SOURCE: The Morning Call
Craigslist is fascinating, however, if you’re using it for anything more than getting rid of your chest of drawers, I’m going to question your decision making skills. It’s a great resource and was probably once a sweet place to find lady friends who also liked to do drugs. But, since everyone became aware of what was going on there, I’m sure cops just sit on the site all day long waiting for idiots like this to mess up.
Have a great weekend and don’t forget to start planning for our Musikfest Photo Scavenger Hunt!
