Bogus pot deal, involving broccoli, and gunfire at Aurora mall gets man 16 years in prison
An Aurora man involved in gunfire at a local mall over a bogus marijuana deal, which involved broccoli instead of weed, has been sentenced to prison.
Sababu Colbert-Evans, 26, of Aurora was sentenced Friday to 16 years in prison, according to the Arapahoe County district attorney’s office. A jury found Colbert-Evans guilty in May of attempted first-degree murder.
On March 16, 2016, a drug dealer named Tercell Davis, who went by the street name 22 Jump Street, accepted $10,000 for a marijuana sale, but Davis substituted broccoli for the pot, according to a DA’s news release.
The buyers didn’t realize they’d been ripped off until they drove off.
