Christopher Robert DuffyA Pennsylvania man was arrested during a traffic stop on I-85 after a deputy suspected dozens of rice crispy treats contained marijuana.

He told the arresting officer the treats were for his sick aunt.

Christopher Robert Duffy, 29, of Philadelphia is charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession with intent to distribute cocaine by the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office.

Duffy was a passenger in a car that was stopped on Interstate 85 North at the 80 mile marker Monday night.

The deputy suspected Duffy and a woman driving the car had possession of drugs after they were stopped for making illegal lane changes. A K-9 checked the exterior of the car and reacted at the front door.

The deputy claims to have found 14 small bags of white powder – suspected to be cocaine – in the car along with cash. The deputy says he also found 29 rice crispy treats that smelled of marijuana in the trunk.

Duffy told the officer “the marijuana rice crispy treats were for his sick aunt and that he purchased them at a concert in Atlanta” according to the incident report.

Duffy was arrested, but the driver of the car was allowed to leave. Duffy is being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center on $10,000 bond.
