Okay, say you're drug dealers, and you have cocaine with a street value of £500,000 in your car. Would you drive down the hard shoulder of a motorway, even if there was heavy traffic on the road? I mean, what if you were to undertake a police patrol car? They might give chase in an attempt to pull you over. You'd have to be pretty stupid, right?
As stupid as Simon Pagett and Dean Stone, who did just that on the M6 in the West Midlands.
These people are not criminal masterminds. If they were, they would know not to draw attention to yourself while doing, or in the possession of, something naughty.
And that's £500,000-worth of blow that Birmingham's party animals will be missing. Honestly, as if those spoilsport rozzers using pandemic restrictions to break up their fun times wasn't bad enough.
