A 27-year-old man from central Israel was arrested Tuesday night after police found his resume inside a bag containing hundreds of packets of the recently outlawed synthetic drug known as “Mr. Nice Guy.”
The unidentified job applicant was promptly located in his Rishon Lezion apartment by Yarkon District police officers shortly after the CV was discovered in a car containing a bag of 350 packets of the illegal drug, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.
According to Rosenfeld, the drugs were initially found by concerned area residents who contacted police upon seeing the contents of the suspicious vehicle, which was subsequently impounded.
“The police took the bag and went straight to the home of the suspect and questioned him,” said Rosenfeld. “When he didn’t provide a convincing answer as to why his resume was found with the drugs, he was placed into custody.”
Rosenfeld noted that the suspect’s resume described him as “responsible” and “serious,” adding that he wrote that he had a “background in security.”
Mr. Nice Guy, a synthetic cannabinoid once sold at kiosks across the country, was outlawed in 2013 after the Knesset Committee on Labor, Welfare, and Health in 2013 deemed it an illegal substance.
The crackdown came shortly after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on police and the Health Ministry to launch a task force to fight the sale of cheap, legal drugs at kiosks across Israel.
