(Or, if you don’t have a license plate on your car, don’t drive around with drugs!)

DeLand police officers observed a teal Toyota Corolla, with no license plate, being driven on a public street the morning of Dec. 20.

When they conducted a traffic stop, they learned that the driver was a 60-year-old man, who, it turned out, hadn’t registered the car and also didn’t have auto insurance.

Then, one of the officers saw, in plain sight in the vehicle, “a glass pipe with burn residue on it” and “a small white in color rock like substance.”

On the driver’s-side front seat was “another glass pipe with burn residue,” and inside the sun visor/mirror, also on the driver’s side, was “a small clear plastic bag with brown powder in it.”

The rocklike substance tested presumptive positive for crack cocaine, the two glass pipes tested presumptive positive for crack cocaine residue, and the brown powder tested presumptive positive for heroin. (That’s heroin, as in a dangerous drug, not heroine, as in Wonder Woman or Batgirl.)

The lawmen arrested Poor- Decisions Driver and had him taken to jail.

And they also issued him several citations, one of which was for having an open alcoholic beverage in his car.

I’ve got to know: What bozo needs to have an alcoholic drink after all those drugs?
