U.S. Attorney: Window tint job backfired on Kan. drug dealer

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – A Kansas man whose auto windows were so darkly tinted that it gave police a reason to stop him was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in federal prison on a drug trafficking charge, according to U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister.

Ty Stultz, 44, Shawnee, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Police in Kansas City, Kan., responded to a complaint that a man in a silver Cadillac was selling drugs at an apartment complex. They spotted Stultz driving out of the complex.

They found probable cause to stop him when they noticed that the one-way glass in his windows appeared to violate state law, which prohibits window tinting that blocks more than 35 percent of sunlight. In the car, officers found methamphetamine and a .40 caliber handgun. A records check determined Stultz had prior drug convictions.
