If you or someone you know is missing 15 pounds of cannabis, the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's department would like to reunite this lonely pot with its rightful stoner owner.
"We'll make an attempt at trying to find out who the owner is, but the likelihood of that happening is very slim," said a Sheriff's rep to a reporter today.
From the Glendale News-Press, the tale of a randomly discovered large bag of weed trimmings — not the coveted flower buds, but the rest of the plant.
The marijuana was turned in after it was discovered on the side of the road in La Crescenta by volunteers from the Crescenta Valley Town Council and Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce Saturday morning.
The two organizations were doing their monthly cleanup of the area around the Foothill (210) Freeway and La Crescenta Avenue when Councilman Mike Classens came across a large bag filled with pot.
"I could tell immediately it was full of marijuana. It emitted a really strong odor, no question about it," Classens said.
He said it's typical to see discarded empty bottles used for medical marijuana during a clean-up, but never the actual herb itself.
Classens took the bag over to another part of the cleanup area to show a friend when he noticed a second large bag about 20 feet away. It was also filled with marijuana.
"It was quite a lot of marijuana. I've never seen so much," he said.
Sheriff's deputies were eventually called in and took custody of the discarded bags. Lt. Mark Slater, with the Crescenta Valley station, said it is unknown who left the marijuana behind.
If no one claims the marijuana, all 15 pounds of it will be smoked by law enforcement agents. LOL JK. Or am I.
