High School Teacher Snagged In Drug Date Sting

 


CAMARILLO (AP) — Ventura County Sherriff’s officials have arrested a 29-year-old high school teacher who brought pot to a date at a motel room with an undercover deputy.

Officials said Monday that Ashrof Boulos Hindi was snagged by an investigator who was looking into online drug deals.

The investigator contacted Hindi using the Craigslist website by posing as a date-seeking female. The department says Hindi sought to entice the investigator with drugs and alcohol.

When he arrived Saturday at a Motel 6 in Camarillo, deputies awaiting him found he had a small amount of marijuana. A small amount of cocaine was found in his Los Angeles County home.

Hindi was arrested on suspicion of transporting and possessing drugs and is being held on $50,000 bail.

Directory assistance had no telephone listing for Hindi.

    It must be a slow day in law enforcement. “A small amount of marijuana and cocaine”. Really, you’re going to make a big deal over this? No we all can see why the Fed is going to take over your prison system.

    So let me get this straight, there are active sting operations in which police pose as “date-seeking females” to bust citizens for smoking pot? This is insane, and borderline unconstitutional.

    whoooo – wow. Now that’s a heinous villain. Whoooo whooo. _ I’m glad all those cadet trainee security buffs get so many uniformed hourly salary out of the hunt that ended in THIS man. A school teacher that smokes pot whooooo. Now that’s really worth all those 10,000s of tax dollars for That. Whew – I’m so much safer now. Whew that’ll really put a dent in the california medical pot millions smoking dope.

    Poor guy. There goes his life for a “small amount” of recreational drugs.
    Meanwhile they let molesters out of jail on short sentences or early for good behavior to molest more children–and this guy is a “monster?” This is a joke.

    I workedfor the LAUSD, there are more teachers than you know who use drugs. I know of one who is currently in charge of special education in a san fernando valley high school. They dont get tested, only when initially hired. I currentlywork at a hospital…guess what they hospital employees use drugs too. Notallof course but if there was random testing our pts wouldbe much safer.

    omg! what a bunch of loser deputies!! i hope they are on their computers right now so they can see how grateful we all are!! how is this law enforcement? trolling websites and emailing guys who just want to smoke a joint and meet someone for anonymous sex? those brainwashed officers and the rest of you who don’t realize that certain drugs are illegal only because someone or some agency decided they should be. it is all invented and people really think these idiots are solving something by ruining someone’s life. the govt doesn’t care about citizens here…this is all a money making racket and the simple minded foot soldiers who go into law enforcement are just the thugs who shake folks down in the guise of public safety. they don’t know why they are supposed to arrest someone for having insignificant amounts of pot and cocaine, they just do it because they’re told to. but to go to these lengths to entrap and lure someone is ridiculous and should embarrass anyone with a badge!! you know the deputy sat and pretended to be all hot and ready to hook up and probably kept asking him if he had any 420…would he bring it, the sex will be great, etc. pathetic! and what judge gave them a warrant to enter his home based on a small amount of pot? i hope whomever’s photo the deputy used, wherever she is, finds out and sues the sheriff’s dept for impersonating her and slandering her likeness. give them a taste of their own medicine.
    i hope he gets a great attorney and whips the hell outta these charges…there has to be violations of his rights here somewhere…these fools don’t sound smart enough to have crossed their i’s and dotted their t’s. and yes, i said that wrong in honor of the venture sheriff’s dept.

    This is the kind of thing that gives cops a bad name.

  10. Bill says:

    The fact is that the only thing keeping this guy “underground” in the first place was the fear of getting arrested. Without this concern, more people would be doing drugs, or even teachers coming to school high. And before you jump on my back for being “out of touch” with reality, my cousin was killed last year by a driver who just used marijuana “recreationally”. You all will think it’s harmless until it leads to the death of someone close to you! Then you will be upset that the cops don’t do enough!

    What a waist of tax money. Find a real criminal.

  12. wake the F up says:

    silly commentors, really, you are that confused and blind?
    if they dont run their simple “pick n roll” scheme they dont get their huge budgets passed so they can use the money to pay their salaries directly. what do u ppl need to see that? another wall street meltdown, wake up and leave some comments that make sense, no on ehere even made contact with the F ball!

    THIS IS ALL ABOUT LOOKING LIKE YOU R WORKING WHILE FUNDING YOUR DEPARTMENTS. IF POT WAS MADE LEGAL TOMORROW THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS WOULD BE OUT OF JOBS IN SIX MONTHS OR LESS.

    A great example of the repercussions of illegal cannabis being more destructive than the substance itself.

    The SD looks like a band of barneys for blowing untold resources on a pathetic user bust, and the news media looks equally idiotic for trumpeting it as a significant triumph.

  14. WAKE UP ALREADY says:

    DVQEVQEVQ THIS IS A BUSINESS(PUTTING PPL IN JAIL ON DRUG CHARGES) WHAT DONT U PPL UNDERSTAND!!!!!!! THINK OF IT AS AN UPSALE OR SUGGESTIVE SALE AT SAFEWAYS DELI DEPT. Y ARE THERE TRUENT OFFICERS, CAUSE IF THE KIDS DONT COME TO SCHOOL AND WARM THE SEATS THYE LOSE MONIES!!!!!! SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN COMPETING WITH JUVENILE HALL FOR DECADES!!!!

  15. What a waste says:

    I’m glad they got this hard core career criminal off of the streets. I think i’ll sleep with my doors unlocked now.

  16. MBman says:

    Great story. Reading between the lines i am thrilled to learn Ventura county is free of serious violent and proprty crime. God speed in next saving your community from men looking for Companionship with a consenting adult and maybe smoking a small amount of pot with them. Great work. Love to see those tax dollars at work.

  17. Jillian Galloway says:

    Look at the crime stats. – teachers want to smoke it, grandparents want to smoke it, judges, cops and politicians want to smoke it. Just how many people need to want to smoke it before we make it legal?!!

    The individuals we vote into power are our representatives, NOT our rulers. If we want to smoke marijuana then we should be given the right to do so. It is NOT their job to impose their moral values onto us!!
