Police Bust Teenager Trying to Sell Marijuana Door-to-Door

It's fair to say that Anthony Carrazco probably isn't the best salesman.

The 19-year-old was arrested after allegedly trying to sell marijuana door-to-door.

His poor sales strategy led him to knock on one to many doors -- one that belonged to an off-duty police officer.

According to the Brownsville Herald, an intoxicated Carrazco went door to door looking for a buyer and when a man opened the door, he made the offer, police said.

Carrazco had tried to sell the officer three ounces of marijuana.

The cop told the teenager he would be right back and he returned with his badge and handcuffs.

Police say the teenager was also drunk and carrying a 9mm handgun in his bag.

Carrazco was charged with one count of possession of marijuana and one count of possession of a prohibited weapon.

Because the officer's apartment was located near a University of Texas campus (a drug free and weapon free zone), the charges were upgraded to state jail felonies.

So for Carrazco, it's back to the drawing board.

Beyond attempting to sell controlled substances door-to-door, next time he should maybe consider the 10 Signs You're A Bad Salesman.
