21 Year Drug-Trafficking Suspect caught due to Stupidity

  • What is stupider, that you can be arrested for pointing a laser pointer at a police officer, or drawing police attention to yourself when you’re on the lam for drug trafficking?

    A 52-year-old man who allegedly avoided drug trafficking charges in Massachusetts for 21 years by living a quiet life in rural Virginia was ordered held on $500,000 cash bail Friday after his arraignment in Suffolk Superior Court, prosecutors said.

    Elias Efremidis, who most recently lived in Front Royal, Va., was brought back to Boston on Thursday to face the 1988 charges, the Suffolk district attorney’s office said.

    Efremidis’s life on the lam ended recently when he shined a laser pointer at police in Virginia, police said. As officers prepared to charge him for that offense, they realized his true identity and contacted Suffolk prosecutors, law enforcement officials said.
