Man faces prison after taking bag stuffed with dirty socks, not weed, to Michigan drug deal

A southeastern Michigan man who brought a backpack stuffed with dirty socks to a couple looking to buy a pound of marijuana is facing prison.

The Daily Telegram of Adrian reports (http://bit.ly/1NeBVMX ) the fraudulent July 8 marijuana sale in Lenawee County's Raisin Township was described Wednesday in Circuit Court when Michael Rafael Suarez of Ypsilanti pleaded guilty to false pretenses.

The 33-year-old says he "didn't bring any weed" and instead had "a bag of dirty socks." He faces up to 7½ years in prison when sentenced Sept. 3. An?Ypsilanti couple who say they accompanied Suarez pleaded guilty to reduced charges.

Police stopped the three and a man told officers that he and his girlfriend were robbed. Authorities say $2,800 in cash was taken during the would-be drug deal.
