Burns said that he plans to “fight the charge” on behalf of his employee, and that he doubts any jury in Alaska will convict the Discreet Deliveries driver, who was charged with a misdemeanor for Misconduct Involving a Controlled Substance.
According to Burns, his employee was “ambushed as he attempted to deliver a sealed package containing an ounce of marijuana,” on the night of Wednesday, January 27.
Discreet Deliveries Owner Speaks Out
Two days after one of his cannabis delivery service drivers was arrested
in a sting operation conducted by the Anchorage Police Department,
Discreet Deliveries owner Rocky Burns told the Press the APD is “suffering
a serious case of misplaced priorities.”
“It’s sad that local police seem to be taking extra lengths to make the
last weeks of marijuana prohibition in Alaska the most painful, when men and women are being shot to death in the street every other day. It’s a disservice to the families of those lives lost in Anchorage that APD would waste resources on me.”
The following morning, Burns noted, Anchorage Police Chief Mark Mew held a press conference to announce the APD is creating a task force to address a recent string of shootings in Anchorage, including four homicides in one week.
On January 26, one day before the APD string, Press contributing editor David Holthouse placed and received an order for cannabis products through Discreet Deliveries, as described in this week’s Blotter column https://anchoragepress.com/blotter/3/that’s-dope.
“Discreet Deliveries has temporarily ceased operations but plans to reopen in the coming weeks,” Burns said.
“Local law enforcement has made it clear that enforcing the failed drug war is far more important than investigating the rash of deadly shootings in Anchorage and respecting the will of the people,” Burns said.
