Missouri man promoting catalytic converter on-line forgets to cover meth

A Missouri man attempting to promote a catalytic converter on-line has been arrested after an enormous stash of meth and a syringe had been noticed within the background of the photograph he used for the commercial.

James Kertz, 38, was taken into custody in Reeds Spring on Wednesday after posting a photo of the catalytic converter on Facebook Marketplace.

His bag of meth and drug paraphernalia had been clearly seen on the espresso desk behind the exhaust emission system he was attempting to eliminate.

Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader stated somebody tipped them off to the drug stash quickly after Kertz posted the advert on Facebook.

“Apparently he must have been under the influence because in the background of his picture he posted, he left his large bag of meth and syringe on the coffee table,” the sheriff stated.
