A convicted felon in Pinal County hit the trifecta in terms of shit you shouldn't have in your pickup truck -- cops found weed, a sawed-off shotgun, and crystal meth after he wrecked his truck near Arizona City yesterday.

Cops responded to the accident and found 35-year-old Casey Amos, as well as the gun -- which was loaded -- the weed, and the meth, which was packaged for sale, police found drug paraphernalia, $537 in cash, and a "ledger" police say he used to keep track of his drug deals.

When asked about the collection of felonious items, Amos copped to the weed, saying it was for "health reasons" (not yet it's not, buddy).

As for the rest of the stuff, Amos told police he had no idea what it was doing in his truck.

Amos was arrested and charged with possession of a dangerous drug, possession of a dangerous drug for sale, possession of marijuana, position of marijuana for sale, possessions of drug paraphernalia, and prohibited possessor in possession of a firearm.

Cops are awaiting the results of a blood test to determine whether he was under the influence at the time of the crash.
