If you are missing 60 pounds of pot please call the Tampa office
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071128/ap_on_fe_st/odd_hig...

TAMPA, Fla. - The Florida Highway Patrol says anyone missing two big bags of pot can call their Tampa area office. A crew picking up litter from along Interstate 4 near Tuesday morning made an unusual find: two big plastic garbage bags stuffed with freshly harvested marijuana.

FHP Trooper Larry Coggins says the 60 pounds of pot might be worth around $54,000 on the street. It probably fell off or was thrown from a car on the interstate.

The plants appeared freshly picked and some had intact roots.

Coggins says it's not the largest amount of pot ever dumped along a roadside, but it's certainly not a common find.

2. COPS are such freaking liars.....
No way in hell there is 30 pounds of pot in one of those bags. All stalks, stems and leaves. BULLSHIT. If it was solid buds, it is unlikely you could fit 30 pounds into one trash bag....

Why do they lie about this kind of shit?

To me, it looks like the crap you have after harvest and some growers (usually the ones that grow for profit only)just throw that kind of trash away....

5. If you're missing half a ton, we've got it in Wisconsin
Truckers charged in half-ton pot bust
By ANNE JUNGEN | La Crosse Tribune

A felony drug charge was filed Tuesday against two California truck drivers arrested after authorities said they found more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana amid a load of fresh tomatoes in their semi trailer.

Marco Corzo, 54, and Gurmit Singh, 37, both of Palmdale, Calif., each were charged Tuesday with being party to the crime of possession with intent to deliver THC. The pair were arrested Nov. 20 after their truck was stopped at the West Salem Safety and Weight Facility on eastbound Interstate 90.

Singh, described as extremely edgy and nervous by a Wisconsin State Patrol trooper, told authorities Corzo, his co-driver, threatened him, according to the criminal complaint. Singh also said Corzo had a gun and was using drugs, the complaint stated.

Corzo told a trooper he did not have any guns, illegal drugs or large amounts of cash in the truck, according to the complaint. Both consented to a search, the complaint stated.

6. They have Illegal material in the vehicle and consent to a search.
They belong in jail for being stupid if nothing else.

7. Maybe they'd eaten too many tomatoes to think straight.
