Man arrested for selling marijuana from ice cream truck

U.S. authorities in southwest Michigan said they arrested an ice cream truck operator who was selling marijuana along with his frozen desserts.

After receiving tips about the alleged pot-peddler, a deputy saw the ice cream truck entering a mobile home park Thursday afternoon and stopped it, Berrien County sheriff's Lt. Keith Hafer said in a written statement.

Deputy John Hopkins spoke with the driver and "detected the odor of marijuana coming from the truck (along with tutti-frutti and a couple other flavors)," Hafer wrote.

Authorities searched the van and found several packages of marijuana under the dashboard, the statement said.

The 36-year-old suspect was jailed while awaiting arraignment on charges of marijuana possession with intent to deliver and maintaining a drug vehicle. He also faces an outstanding warrant for skipping child support, Hafer said.

Authorities released the vehicle to the vending company "in spite of an effort by Narcotics Officers to devise a way to forfeit the vehicle and its icy cold treats," Hafer said. He said police would seek revocation of the company's license to operate in Benton Township.
