The man behind the mask, John R. Morales, was stopped back in 2011 for speeding. Ironically, during the stop, police called in sniffer dogs that later found marijuana in his car. In addition to the drugs, police also found two maps that lead to pot farms. But that’s not it… That map also led to the discovery of over 27 guns.
Morales worked as a character actor, where he would dress up a McGruff, the crime fighting dog. That was back in the 90s. Now, he’s since been sentenced on drug and weapon charges after 1,000 marijuana plants and 27 weapons, including grenade launchers, were found at the two indoor farms. His punishment: 16 years and 3 months in federal prison.
How’s that for irony.
