Scooby Snacks

This one falls under the category of, "You Just Can't Make This Stuff Up."

Thursday night of last week Roc locked up a member of the Bloods Gang. The guy was dressed in red from head to toe, and as you can imagine, he had a little bit of an attitude problem. Now, we don't have the gang problems out here on the East Coast like they do out on the West Coast, but we still have our local chapters of the Bloods, the Crips, plus creations that are entirely New York, like the Saint James Boys.

Anyway...Roc locks this guy up for criminal mischief, which is a relatively routine crime. After spending some time in the cell, prisoners often ask for water and/or food. When Roc was initially searching this person, he came across little packets of fruit snacks stuffed into each of his front pockets: Scooby Snacks, no less. At the time, Roc chuckled. Once the person was in custody, he went ahead vouchering his items, and was about to throw the Scooby Snacks away. After all, the NYPD won't allow them to voucher food.

As this particular Blood was waiting to get transported over to Central Booking, he called out to Roc:
Roc turned to him and said, "What can I do for you?"
"Officer, can you get me my Scooby Snacks? I'm hungry!"
I'm sure if I could have seen the expression on Roc's face at that very moment that it would have been priceless.
"Sure." He tossed them into the cell rather than the garbage.
"Way to look out, Officer." The gang member responded with a smile.
