Jesus Ginjauma was pulled over by police for driving a scooter that had the license plate blacked out. When an officer asked to see his driving license, Ginjauma told him that he did not currently have one, but that he had all the paperwork ready to go to get one. He said that he had gone to the DMV to submit the forms, but it was closed.
Police then ran a check on Ginjauma and were informed that he had four instances in the last year where his license had been suspended. This prompted the officer to ask Ginjauma if he had any contraband on him, and Ginjauma confessed to their being bags of cocaine and meth under the seat of the scooter. He said that he had only just purchased the motor vehicle and that the former owner was out of the country.
Upon further investigation of the vehicle, the officer found a sedative, marijuana, plastic bags and a pipe. Ginjauma told the police officer that none of the items found on the scooter were his. He revealed that he had just bought the scooter the previous day and that all the illegal substances were the previous owner’s.
He also shared that when he found all the drugs, he was unsure of what to do with them, so he decided to just leave them where they were and deal with them another day. Police repeatedly asked him if they were his substances or if he was transporting them for someone else, but he adamantly denied that being the case.
Police weren’t quick to believe Ginjauma’s story about the drugs and have charged him with possession and driving while on a suspended license. He is currently being held on bail and if convicted could face a decent amount of time in jail.
