Thomas Jin Kim of Brooklyn, NY tried to outsmart authorities by having almost $1 million of weed delivered to an address in Canton, Massachusetts (because no one in their right mind would have that much weed delivered to their home), but that plan went bust.
A Brooklyn, New York, man is facing drug trafficking charges after police say he showed up to pick up a shipment of close to $1,000,000 worth of marijuana. Thomas Jin Kim, 30, of 255 McKibben St., Apt. 212 in Brooklyn, was arrested Friday after police say he picked up the first half of a nearly 300-pound delivery of pot, according to a department press release. He was held on $1 million bail over the weekend and was due to be arraigned Tuesday in Stoughton District Court. Canton police had received information about a large marijuana delivery coming into town through an unsuspecting transport company, according to the release. The release did not name the company. Plainclothes and uniformed officers, together with officers from the State Police, the Drug Enforcement Agency and Stoughton police staked out the area. At 2 p.m., Kim showed up and took possession of half of the delivery and was arrested, according to the release. The marijuana had a street value of close to $1 million based on its weight and quality, according to the release.
