The Most Cheerful Mugshot in the World!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Trooper Ryan Marmol reported that police were called for a report of a disturbance at the residence of David W. Kalb, 41, at Hempfield Towers on South Grande Boulevard about 6:40 p.m.


When troopers arrived, they met Kalb, who was involved in the disturbance.

`Kalb opened the door to his apartment and invited (Marmol) in. ... In plain view, I observed a small amount of marijuana, 70 mushroom plants and 10 mason jars containing active ingredients to manufacture psychedelic mushrooms,` Marmol wrote in a police report.

Kalb was arraigned on charges of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, as well as possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia."

There is nothing unusual about a man arrested for possessing marijuana, psychedelic mushrooms and drug paraphernalia in a housing authority apartment complex.

What makes this story interesting is that the suspect displayed the enthusiasm associated with mushrooms in what might be the year`s most cheerful mugshot.

When Marmol is released from jail he won`t have an apartment to return to, he was evicted. Are you smiling now pal?
