Running red lights not smart when you have drugs in the car

From the Daily News:

Cops pulled over a city correction officer in Queens and found four kilograms of heroin in his car, sources said Tuesday.

Marco Villacris, 46, ran a red light at 40th Road and Warren St. in Elmhurst about 3:40 p.m. Monday, police said. They searched his car and found the drugs.

Villacris, who worked at the Anna M. Kross Center on Rikers Island, was suspended without pay.

He's expected to be fired, a Correction Department spokesman said.

Villacris has worked with the department since August 2008.

Villacris was awaiting arraignment late Tuesday.

Why would they search one's car for a minor violation? What's next, a cavity search for jaywalking?

I hope this enables justice to correct the correction officer. I wonder how much money he earned since he became a correction officer.

i know someone who is a corrections officer. he says most of the C.O.'s working there dress like the thugs they "guard". hilarious. i think its time for a dress code (ie show up to work dressed in a suit, not like puff diddly)
