Gingerbread Man Gets Arrested
You know your a stupid criminal and drug dealer when you taunt the local police through facebook and call your self the Gingerbread Man. And then get arrested.
According to Megan Griffo of The Huffington Post that’s exactly what Mark Gross Jr. did.
This guy sure knew how to push the cops’ (gumdrop) buttons.
An alleged drug dealer left police a message on Montgomeryville-Landsdale Patch’s Facebook page saying,”Im not turnin my self….run run as fast as u can u can’t catch me I’m da ginger bread man….sincerely da Gingerbread Man.” the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
Mark Gross, Jr., 21, was spotted selling cocaine in October, Lansdale police say, and they have been trying to locate him ever since. On February 20, according to Mongomeryville-Lansdale Patch Gross wrote his gingerbread rhyme as a comment on the news website’s Facebook post, which was asking the public of his whereabouts.
The 21-year-old then contacted police again on Feb. 22, saying he woudl turn himself in, WFMZ-TV reported. He never did.
Prior to the alleged drug-dealing, police say Gross was already wanted for parole violation. He had pleaded guilty in 2011 for assaulting his then-pregnant girlfriend, according to Patch.
On Monday, police say they noticed Gross in the passenger seat of a parked car. After a small chase, he was brought into custody.
Gross Jr. remains incarcerated at Montgomery County prison.
