Meet the 19-Year-Old Drug Kingpin from Texas with the Happiest Mugshot in America

The media is having a field day with this teenager who is a drug kingpin. Publications (including ours) are calling her “adorable,” “beautiful,” “unassuming,” even. They are also saying that hers is the “happiest mugshot in America.”

Prosecutors allege that Sarah Furay from Texas is a hardcore drug dealer. You’d never know it by looking at her pictures, it’s true. Hers is just not the mug you associate with a drug kingpin. But that’s what evidence seems to say Furay is.

According to KCEN police busted her with 31.5 grams of packaged cocaine, 126 grams of high grade marijuana, 29 ecstasy tablets, methamphetamine and a 60 doses of 25c NBOME, a drug similar to LSD. That’s a lotta drugs! And let us not forget what else they found: packing materials, two digital scales and a handwritten inventory of the drugs she has in her possession.

As if all the evidence wasn’t enough, police also discovered several texts on Furay’s phone. Apparently, she’d texted people about the sale of her shocking inventory of drugs, according to Death and Taxes.

Furay was held overnight at the Brazos County Jail, before posting her $39,000 bond and being released on bail.

The amount of marijuana police found in her possession means Furay will be charged as a state jail felony, carrying a sentence of up to two years in jail and $10,000 (£6570) in fines.

Furay will also face two first-degree felony charges and one second-degree felony charge for the manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance.

If convicted of the three charges, she could face a sentence of up to 215 years in prison and up to $30,000 (£19,700) in fines, The Eagle reported.

Now, that’s not adorable.
