Ex-NFL Lineman Arrested, Allegedly Caught with $120K Worth of Drugs

Former NFL player Greg Robinson was pulled over in his Cadillac Escalade for what was supposed to be a routine traffic stop on Monday. But his world was turned upside down when a police-trained K-9 alerted the cops of the possibility that narcotics were present. Upon receiving a warrant, a police search ensued and it resulted in the recovery of a litany of drugs.

According to a police report, the officers on hand found about four grams of crack cocaine, 38.89 pounds of suspected marijuana, 227 doses of suspected hydrocodone, 3.16 pounds of suspected crystal methamphetamine, 2.22 pounds of suspected cocaine, 48 doses of suspected oxycodone, and 18 doses of alprazolam. The police also recovered drug trafficking equipment and paraphernalia, gun magazines, and ammunition. In total, the estimated wholesale value of the seized narcotics was about $120,810.

Greg Robinson was subsequently arrested and taken into custody by the Thibodaux Police Department. Nearly two years ago, Robinson was caught trying to cross the southern border with 157 pounds of weed. The former number two draft pick faces eight felony charges, which include drug possession and the intent to distribute. The former offensive tackle for the Cleveland Browns made over $29 million during his six-year career in the NFL. He is currently being held at the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex on a $315,000 bail.
