Accused Cow Palace ecstasy dealer says he was just a mule 

If only the teen pill popper had more wholesome girlfriends.

Samuel Warner Morgan, the 19-year-old Belmont resident charged with dealing ecstasy pills at a Cow Palace rave, says he’s no dealer. Rather, he says he possessed the 25 pills because the girls he was with were scantily clad and lacked the capacity to carry them.

Defense attorney Geoff Carr made the claims Thursday during opening statements of the trial stemming from the rave drug bust on May 23, 2009.

Morgan is facing multiple charges including drug sales and transportation after he was arrested for selling two pills to an undercover female cop, according to prosecutors.

The defense claims entrapment by the “attractive” undercover cop, prosecutors said.

According to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Morgan claimed he initially declined to sell to the officer, but after she followed him and persisted he finally gave in and sold her two pills at cost.

The trial was scheduled to resume Thursday.

Brown is out of custody on a $40,000 bail bond.
