David Roy Huckaby, 33, joined the SPCO in 2009 and left in July 2014. He has since played in the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and now lives in California. Police say there was 113 lbs worth of pot in his car, valued at quarter of a million dollars.

    • Reminds me of Alexander Harrild, son of the LSO’s principal tuba Patrick Harrild, who landed in hot water after having turned to trafficking or dealing drugs in Chile, where he was a horn player in the Santiago Philharmonic Orchestra.

  • Why is there a photo of the SPCO? –it’s not like this incident has any connection to them. There are plenty of photos available online of Mr. Drug Dealer. Obviously NL is going for sensationalism, but this is just a cheap move
