It's an unfortunate fact that the words "illegal window tint" appear in a large number of police reports nationwide. Polling daily news reports from around the country will provide an exhausting number of incidents. Illegal tint is so closely associated with "suspicious vehicles," that officers frequently admit it is one of their number one tools for identifying potential criminals.

Here's a condensed list of what has surfaced in recent days:


Goldsboro, N.C.-Jalisea Michelle McKenzie was pulled for a tint violation, but also managed to fetch quite a laundry list of additional charges. The 20 year old was also cited for: possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, carrying a concealed weapon, possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, maintaining a vehicle for a controlled drug and driving on a revoked license … Baton Rouge, La.-A Baton Rouge resident was booked into the Port Barre jail on multiple drug charges after initially being pulled for a tint violation. Officials stated that a strong odor of marijuana was coming from the vehicle and, after a search, they discovered it was a bit of a rolling greenhouse and drug store. Police found 41 marijuana plants, 13 ½ xanax pills, approximately ten grams of marijuana, two glass smoking devices and one marijuana crusher. Steven Cody Anderson was arrested for manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana, possession with the intent to distribute schedule IV narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, illegal window tint and driving with a suspended license … Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-39-year-old Larry James Darlington was being electronically monitored after threatening a Broward Sheriff's deputy during a traffic stop. The chain of events started with illegal tint. He was also cited for possession of cannabis, having an unsecured/obscured tag, no insurance or proof of registration and threatening to harm a public servant. Deputies said Darlington threatened the deputy with death and the death of his children if the charges were not dropped. He was released with an ankle bracelet after he posted $3,500 bond, but only a day later, he is now on the loose after cutting off his ankle bracelet, and deputies have asked for help finding him … And the list goes on …
