Va. police make 'Cokayne' drug bust

March 28, 2011 at 2:06 PM

WASHINGTON, March 28 (UPI) -- Virginia police who arrested a man on suspicion of dealing drugs say it's just a coincidence the suspect's name is Kevin Lee Cokayne.

A search inventory of items confiscated in Cokayne's Fairfax County apartment lists a safe with marijuana, a wooden box with marijuana, two jars containing marijuana, a smoking device with marijuana, a digital scale, and "records and documents," The Washington Post reported Monday.

An undercover officer had previously asked Cokayne if he could search the apartment.

Cokayne refused.

"I don't see why you want to waste your time for an eighth of weed," he reportedly said. "It's a misdemeanor."

So police returned with a search warrant for the rented basement apartment.

Cokayne, 24, was charged with two felony counts of distributing marijuana.
