Bonnaroo-Bound Man Busted With LSD (VIDEO)
Could it be SATAN?
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Murfreesboro police arrested a man they believe intended to sell 1,000 tabs of LSD at Bonnaroo, which started Thursday.
Bonnaroo is a four-day, multi-stage camping festival in Manchester, which is about 60 miles south of Nashville. It attracts more than 80,000 and features a diverse lineup of artists.
"It's Schedule 1, which means it has no medical use whatsoever," said Kyle Evans, Murfreesboro police spokesman. "It's purely evil and a bad drug."
Roy Wilbur of Coffee County was arrested after police found enough of the powerful and dangerous hallucinogen for more than 600 people.
"This is a significant amount of LS," Evans said, adding that the amount isn't something his department sees every day.
"When you buy LSD you buy it in what's called a bible and there's a 1,000 hits in a bible. In this case, we found 637," he said.
Wilbur didn't tell police where the rest of the LSD is.
"I'm not going to say he was under the influence, but he was acting strange to officers," Evans said.
Police suspect he was headed to Bonnaroo.
"You put two and two together and it's definitely possible that he was planning on selling those at Bonnaroo," he said.
Police said while some people go to Bonnaroo for fun, others such as Wilbur give the festival a bad name.
Wilbur faces a felony charge for possessing the drugs. He remains in jail. [NewsChannel5]
