McGruff the Crime Dog sentenced to 16 years for drugs

GALVESTON, TX – It may have taken three years to get around to it, but even McGruff the Crime Dog knows crime doesn’t pay.

Former McGruff the Crime Dog actor, John R. Morales, was arrested in 2011 when Galveston police along with a drug-sniffing dog pulled Morales over for speeding. Police found diagrams of two indoor pot-growing operations and a load of pot seedlings stashed in the trunk.

According to court records, after following the diagrams the police were also able to seize 1,000 marijuana plants, 27 weapons and 9,000 rounds of ammunition.

Now the 41-year-old plead guilty and is sentenced to 16 years in the pen. Maybe this McGruff should take his own advice.
