Staff at the Goodwill in Monroe were left a little dazed and confused when they opened a cooler containing roughly 3.7 pounds of marijuana that had been donated over the weekend.
Valued at around $24,000 and stored in plastic bags, the marijuana was reported to the Monroe Police Department around 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 14, said administrative director Debbie Willis. Officers responded and confiscated the stash.
“It's kind of an open and shut story, because we really don't know who did it,” she said.
Willis said there are many different scenarios that could have resulted in the presumably accidental donation.
The pot is currently being held in the department evidence room, and will stay there until it goes to a scheduled drug burn for incineration, Willis said. She said it is not anticipated that anyone will come forward to claim the pot, but any leads will be followed.
