Interesting find by Highway Cleanup Crew

Interstate 4 Cleanup Crew Finds 60 Pounds Of Pot
Members of a highway cleanup crew collected some intriguing litter along Interstate 4 this morning, the Florida Highway Patrol says.

At 7:30 a.m., the crewmen were near McIntosh Road when they spotted two large, plastic trash bags on the side of the highway that were filled with approximately 60 pounds of marijuana, Trooper Larry Coggins said.

Coggins says the plants, valued at more than $54,000, apparently fell out or were thrown out of a passing vehicle. They appeared freshly cut and some had intact root balls. Investigators suspect the plants were harvested within the last 24 hours from a grow-house operation, he said.

And I love the last line:

Anyone missing their bags of marijuana or knows how these bags made their way onto the roadside is asked to contact the Florida Highway Patrol at (813) 631-4020.

The sad thing is that there are people out there who are dumb enough to call the number… Not exactly Darwin at work but maybe a second cousin.
