Some women would just bake a file in a cake.
Aisha N. McClinton, 33, was booked into the county jail last week as part of her conviction on weapons charges.
On March 14, 2010, McClinton was arriving at Stateville Correctional Center to visit a man serving a life sentence for murder when she refused to allow police to search her car. After McClinton changed her mind, one officer found cannabis under her seat, while another saw something else.
While court records say the officer saw a 9mm handgun come from McClinton’s waistband, police report the firearm appeared to have been concealed in an “intimate area” of her anatomy.
McClinton has been sentenced to 120 days in jail and two years of probation.
DIAMOND — “It’s OK. We’re both cops,” the man told the cashier. “Sometimes cops need to smoke a little weed, too.”
But (actual) police say a tobacco shop employee was suspicious the morning of April 28 when two men came in asking to buy cannabis.
A thin white man wearing a black shirt and blue jeans began asking the cashier “stupid” questions.
His partner, a heavy white man wearing a gray shirt and black pants pocketed cigarette lighters and candy.
“(The cashier) stated the heavy-build suspect then came to the counter and ‘inadvertently’ flashed what appeared to be a police badge,” Will County sheriff’s police said.
He asked the cashier if the store sold marijuana before he claimed the pair were representing the law.
The two men left before the theft was discovered.
