Broward County, Florida Sheriff’s Office detectives are looking for the rightful owner of 38 bales of marijuana that were left unattended inside a van in West Park.
Deputies responded to the parking lot of the Home Depot on Friday morning after someone complained about a van that was parked across several parking spaces, reports CBS 12. Deputies inspected the exterior of the van and smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming form inside.
Peeking through the van’s windows, all they could see was a blue tarp covering a “large bundle.”
Drug detection dogs were called to the scene and alerted to the scent. A search of the van revealed it contained 38 “large bags” (they look more like bricks to me) of marijuana.
The total load got a “cop estimate” of $2.2 million, but that doesn’t really mean a lot, especially since they didn’t bother to say exactly how much pot fits in “38 large bags.”
Investigators are trying to track down the origin of the van and the weed, as well as the owner of both.
Anyone with information about the drugs or the owner is asked to contact the Broward Sheriff’s Office at 954-765-4321 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS. You can also visit www.browardcrimestoppers.org online.
I can’t tell you to leave spurious, humorous and insulting tips, because that would clearly be illegal and oh-so-direspectful of the great state of Florida’s harsh marijuana laws.
No, really, stop it! Don’t do that! You darn rascals!
