He ventured into the wilds of north Durham looking for Sasquatch, but a Toronto man says he was instead confronted by an angry police officer who accused him of being a dope grower.
In a complaint filed with Durham police, Tim Marczenko claims he was detained, called a liar and accused of committing crimes he had no part in.
While searching for Bigfoot tracks…
Mr. Marczenko said that when he emerged from the bush and got back into his rental car, he found his way blocked by a Durham police cruiser. He said that, when he explained his reason for being in the area, he was ridiculed by Constable Robert Aukema, the officer dispatched to check out a report of suspicious activity in the area.
While I have no doubt that growers are using this as an excuse, I think the police are a bit naive as to the serious nature of Bigfoot investigators. Some people REALLY ARE just looking for Sasquatch. They need to get with the program and chill out.
I do feel bad for this guy. He was treated like crap.
