2 EMTs arrested after police find marijuana inside ambulance

By EMS1 Staff

MAUMELLE, Ark. — Two EMTs were arrested after police pulled over their ambulance and found marijuana inside.

Arkansas Matters reported that Jarrett Hamilton, 29, and Nelson Giles, 25, EMTs with a Memphis ambulance company, are being held on a string of charges.

The pair were driving a newly purchased ambulance back to Memphis when police made the stop. Police became suspicious when they saw that Hamilton and Giles not wearing EMT uniforms; the rig also lacked any municipal identification.

The list of items found inside the ambulance included: cannabis infused oral spray, pot corn and green marijuana cigars.

They were charged with five counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and five counts of delivering, possessing and manufacturing drug paraphernalia or a counterfeit controlled substance, according to the report.

The little bundles they purchased and carried home are not immoral acts. In the Navy we used to fly from Pensacola to Texas and brought back cases of Coors. We were heroes! I don't see much difference.
