A Connecticut pastor was arrested last Wednesday for purchasing crack cocaine but he contends that with God as his witness “the devil is a liar.”
The Rev. Kenneth DuBose, 45, of St. James Missionary Baptist Church, was arrested with a small bag containing 27 grams of crack cocaine in the front of his car along with two Bibles that were found in his trunk, Bridgeport Police reports.
Police said DuBose was observed buying the drugs from a man who was the target of a sting operation by the Bridgeport Police Department’s Tactical Narcotics Team.
When confronted by officers, DuBose said he was a pastor and was counseling the alleged drug dealer, police said.
Before that, police said, DuBose attempted to execute a three-point-turn to flee the scene, as the dealer was being arrested.
In a Facebook post after the arrest, DuBose wrote that the Lord was on his side.
“The devil is a liar. God will and can turn every set up into a victory,” he wrote, in a post published publicly on his timeline at around 3:36 a.m. Thursday morning. “You have to know this before the storm so when it does come you can trust the outcome. I know that my witness is in Heaven and He got my back. No doubt.”
