Man’s Wrapped Christmas Presents in Trunk Turn Out to Be 71 Pounds of Weed
The police in Millbury, Ohio pulled over 31-year-old Daniel Yates from Eureka, California last week, because he was following too closely behind another driver.
When they walked up to his SUV, they saw he had a whole trunk full of wrapped Christmas presents.
Apparently a guy driving a bunch of Christmas presents across the country made them suspicious, so they had a drug-sniffing dog come out to the car. And it turned out their suspicions were right.
The "presents" were actually filled with 71 pounds of marijuana, 360 THC pills, and a pound of hash oil. All of that is worth a total of $330,000.
Daniel was arrested for felony drug possession and trafficking. He's looking at up to 16 years in prison.
