Cop Block Founder Ademo Freeman Arrested in Ohio for Drug Trafficking/Possession – VIDEO

Cop Block founder and Free Keene blogger Ademo Freeman has been arrested while driving in Lebanon, Ohio by Ohio State Police. Despite Ademo not consenting to a search, trooper Jeffrey Martin claimed that because he allegedly smelled the odor of cannabis, that he had probable cause to search.

Ademo was placed into a cruiser, then the trooper(s) broke open a lock on a suitcase. They asked him how much marijuana he had, so presumably that’s what they found inside – at this point we can’t know for sure. Ademo was placed under arrest and taken to the Warren County Jail, all while asking trooper Martin his thoughts about victimless crimes. All of this is heard on a 40+ minute video recorded and live streamed on Ademo’s cell phone to his facebook page.

I’ve taken the time to edit the video down to less than 15 minutes as well as boost the audio levels. I included portions that I couldn’t make out what was being said, in case you can. Here’s the edited video, which does not have long periods of silence and noise of cars passing:

According to Ademo’s jail record, he’s expected to be arraigned at Warren Municipal Court in front of judge Robert S. Fischer on Tuesday, February 14th. He’s facing three charges including “trafficking in drugs“, a third degree felony, and two counts of “possession of drugs“, one a third degree and the other a fifth degree felony. Ohio actually has their criminal court case records online and you can see Ademo’s case record here. (The jail record says the other count of possession is class three, but the court record says class five.) He’s also been charged with a burnt-out tail light.

Ohio state statutes say that third degree possession or trafficking of marijuana is between 1,000 and 20,000 grams. Fifth degree possession is between 200 and 1,000 grams. Both are felony level charges, and he could be facing as many as eleven years in prison. There is a fundraiser to assist with legal fees that you can help with here.

Should you wish to call the jail to let them know you are paying attention, you can call 513-695-1287 and choose extension 8 to reach a corrections officer. Remember Ademo’s legal name is Adam Mueller. If you’d like to contact the Warren court prosecutor to request they drop the charges, you can reach them at 603-695-1000, Mon-Fri 8:30a-4:30p Eastern. According to the Warren Municipal Court website, the prosecutor is named Cynthia Ellison. Though, there’s another website that says the county prosecutor is named David P Fornshell at 513-695-1325. It’s too late on Friday at the time of this writing to determine which is going to be handling the case.

Allegedly? He did smell cannabis, he found the cannabis he smelled.... Cop detected an offence and arrested a criminal. That's as it should be

Now now Jacks, we both know that Ademo, a has been, has bilked thousands of dollars off the backs of Copblock supporters, in a attempt to seem as relevant as Ian Freeman. How is that working out darling? Bobble heads and socket cocks.

Once again, Ademo played the game and got nailed. The law is certainly silly, no doubt about it, but you know what's sillier? A  34 year old man who has never held a real job for any extended period of time, who has no funds because of that decision and believes others should pay for his defense. Absolutely insane.


The most ironic and hypocritical thing about this is watching him try and suck up to the cop. "You don't like cops?" "I didn't say that, my shirt says I don't talk to cops, not that I don't like them" - come on Ademo, tell the truth you preach. Oh things change now that you know he's got you by the balls.


Get a job, contribute, and perhaps one day you'll have some sort of life instead of chasing around the one girl who talked to you in years and selling pot to get by. Zero pity here. Ademo sold out a long time ago and is noting but a dirt bag.

So it looks like Ian Freeman is still showing his loyalty to snich bitches like Ademon Freeman and Superliar JP Freeman. Not surprised. The ironic thing is their choice of their last names. How free are you really? Not so much.

There's no way a smell should be considered probable cause. Anyone can say "I smell weed". There's no way to prove if the smell was actually present or not. What are they gonna do, take an air sample? Where's the proof that the smell was present?

Jeremy Fotobeara

Still doesn't prove that they could actually smell it at the time. There's ways to package weed so there will be no smell.

The cannabis itself is pretty good proof. They could bring it to court and say, can you smell that? I bet the jurors would be able to smell it

Jeremy Fotobeara without video evidence, how do you prove you saw something? It's probable cause.

Question is;why is there no bail...   Maybe its cause he's traveling?

He lied to the police. He obviously had an amount that falls in the trafficking level. With his extensive criminal record and multiple felonies, he maybe looking at some serious time. He knows the consequences of his actions. By the way, you can smell marijuana which the officers did. Again, Ademo lied.

If a person who hasn't harmed anyone or another persons property etc.  is prosecuted, the prosecutor in reality becomes a persecutor and the defendant becomes the victim.   Who exactly did Ademo harm again?

I think the supreme court has ruled that the "smell of marijuana" isn't allowed to be probable cause anymore... Love cop block, great contribution!!! But he should save his activism during arrests and shut the hell up! Activism is better served outside of prison..

If a cop smells alcohol on you at a stop you're likely to be tested for DUI. I don't like that marijuana is illegal, but if you can smell it in a car that seems like probable cause.

Nope. Look up terpenes. So many things have a similar scent. A skunk for example.

How is it different than sight being used as probable cause? If it was proof, it wouldn't be probable cause. And honestly, taking all that weed across state lines, when your know how illegal it is in those states, is either reckless or stupid. The law is stupid too, but I don't see how getting yourself thrown in jail helps change that.

Jeremy Fotobeara in the case it's pretty easy to prove, he found the marijuana he smelled.....

@DavidJurist What's sad is those types of websites are for those in need. Not drug traffickers. I'm sure there will be a lot of people reporting the page . It's nothing but propaganda.

How are the Police corrupt Jumping Jacks? Oh that's an easy one.

Police make a living by accepting money gotten via forcible means rather than consensual exchange.


A thing or action made legal which still relies on the initiation of force to orchestrate doesn't magically cleanse the operational means does it ?   Police by their nature are witless mercenaries and of course there's the stupid haircuts, but I digress.

Jonathan Bennett everyone knows Ademo has been pushing the limits of legality w his conduct. I love the cop block site, just seems like he overplayed his hand. I'm a big no victim, no crime person, but come on, the law is the law and it's a stupid game to play. Until we actually get people elected who will overturn these laws, it's just tempting fate.

It's a declaration of acceptable conduct enforced by violence. Next question.

My next question is how will I be able to eat all of this molcajete by myself? My other thought.. from the sound of the video, he was pulled over for a missing light, and the guy smelled cannabis. What game was Adam playing?

Jonathan Bennett you're being obtuse. Of course we all hate our corrupt government and the police state but you can't just cry about it and not put up a candidate to represent your concerns.

Of course we do. I don't live in Ohio, so I'm not sure how me "putting up a candidate" is going to change Ademo's right to travel freely situation.

He broke the law. Obviously drunk driving and trafficking weed should be legal, but it's still against the law. Until we change the laws, we shouldn't be surprised when someone gets nicked.

Rye Mattson

Jonathan Bennett what's your point? The government is occupied by individuals who have taken secret oaths. We need representatives that represent our interests. The interests of the people.

Hey man, different strokes. Different ways of trying to affect change. You seem to be of the internal mindset. Ademo seems to go about it by trying to live freely, and not harm anyone. Doesn't make him stupid. To each their own. I'm going to finish this molcajete?

Hey, I want some Molcajete too. Drink one for Ademo. No one wants to be in jail. Fuck jail. Don't put me in a cell unless I'm being murdered in the morning.

i dont think selling pot is a stupid game... The law against it is a stupid game, real stupid and  how long it is taking the state to  pull those laws is  pretty stupid too;the stupid prize is how much tax payers have to pay for  the drug war fiasco.   Fortunately  Mr. Obama saw that it IS a stupid game and has commuted so many  sentences in the final days of his presidency.

@Koncerned Citizen no....maybe you should  google it ...try that before you type what you dont know...you are on the computer right,:did you ever hear of this thing called "google"  ...it works good ...if you dont pay attention to the daily news...  maybe you should school yourself before you open your mouth...then other people dont have to google for you  http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/01/19/obama-grants-330-more-commutations-bringing-total-record-1715/96791186/
