Man buys up hundreds of newspapers attempting to hide arrest


UPI News Service, 02/24/2005 

A California man facing a drug charge spent hundreds of dollars to snap up about 600 copies of his local weekly carrying the news, to no avail.

Jack William Pacheco, 35, owner of a carpet cleaning service, purchased every copy of the Chowchilla News he could find in an effort to suppress news of his arrest for alleged methamphetamine possession. His story appeared on page 1.

But the News meanwhile had an extra press run putting another 550 copies on the stands Thursday and word got around.

"It's an embarrassment to my family," Pacheco said. "It's an embarrassment to me."

He has a March 21 court date.

Meanwhile, "I have a whole garage full of newspapers," Pacheco told the Merced Sun Star.

He said he'd use the several hundred copies he snapped up to clean windows and to toilet-train his new Shih Tzu puppy.
