If you’re still in shock after reading this headline, I can’t say I blame you. Chicago Cubs’ pitching prospect Jesus Camargo was found with what is suspected to be 21 pounds of methamphetamine and 1.2 pounds of oxycodone on Friday night.
According to the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, Camargo was stopped on Interstate 70 for speeding and drifting into other lanes. When pulled over, officers found the drugs in his Chicago Cubs duffle bag.
At this time, Camargo has been charged with unlawful distribution and unlawful possessions of the drugs, both class 1 and 4 charges, respectively. The district attorney’s office has until March 25 to file formal criminal charges.
This is certainly not a good look for Camargo or the Cubs, who unfortunately are dragged into this situation because of his association with the franchise. It’s safe to believe the Cubs bag is the only thing he’ll ever have to do with the team again.
