Police: Man Arrested for Drug Dealing Brags to Police About Drug Dealing

“Mad props is me flipping my stash for five Gs last night,” the man allegedly told an officer.

A 20-year-old Phoenixville man allegedly bragged about his drug dealing abilities to an East Pikeland Police officer after he was arrested on multiple drug charges earlier this month.

According to court documents, on January 11 at 3:06 p.m., Randy Ramraju was pulled over on the 500 block of Kimberton Road for driving with a broken brake light.

The officer immediately smelled marijuana upon approaching the vehicle, and asked Ramraju if he was in possession of the drug. The man denied it initially, but then, when asked again, reached into his driver’s side door pocket and pulled out a clear plastic bag containing what the officer identified as marijuana.

Ramraju was placed under arrest and in the subsequent search of his vehicle, police found a digital scale that smelled strongly of marijuana and several clear plastic bags that appeared to be used to package the drug. Police also found cash in the car.

Later, while he was being processed at the Schuylkill Township Police Department, a peculiar exchange with the arresting officer led to Ramraju apparently bragging about selling marijuana.

When the defendant told police that it was embarrassing to be arrested on the side of the road, and that he worried one of his friends would spot him, the officer, in what he wrote in the affidavit was an attempt at levity, said “Maybe one took your picture and posted it on Facebook. That would be worth mad props, yo.”

Ramraju replied, “No, mad props is me flipping my stash for five Gs last night.”

The officer said he, matter-of-factly, read this as an admission from Ramraju that he sold his marijuana for $5,000 the night before.

Ramraju was charged with a felony count of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and three additional misdemeanor drug charges. He faces preliminary hearing on January 31.

It's so comforting to know that our law enforcement officers speak in the slang of the day. What an excellent return on our tax dollar investment, yo.

the guy is wrong and the cop is right that is very hard to say!! how ever most of the charges will not stick because trash is what it is this guy will leave with a citation(fine) the question is how much did this marijuana cost the tax payers? are theses extra add charges worth it? i mean now the guy gets a lawyer and ends up with the right charge of a misdemeanor very small amount of pot. not downing the police the had to do there job but the extra charges that they know wont stick why every time? why once they get a lawyer it is gone tax payers lose lawyers win the system doesnt work because those in the system wont let it every case has a bunch of bull crap extra thrown on and i wonder how much extra that cost? follow the money it always leads somewhere

But did the guy give phoney auto insurance? Did he? Did he give false documents to the police? Did they accept those false documents? were there favors exchanged? Did the police check anything out? A simple phone call to the agent? What's the DA say? Oh, friend works there too. What can he do ? Can he back date federal law and reprint the books in East Pikeland and give them to the judge? Can he, sure he can!!! Money for Nothing- Dire Straits !!!

Another brilliant piece of knowledge by the biggest loser.. Amazing how you hate Phoenixville so much, apparently from what I read you don't live here, yet, you can't seem to stop talking about it.
