Three Tonnes Of Marijuana Found In Abandoned Truck On L.A. Freeway

Ontario, California – A truck with three tonnes of marijuana was found abandoned on a freeway ramp with its engine still warm, authorities said.

A California Highway Patrol officer saw the rented truck partially blocking the ramp Wednesday night and stopped to offer help before smelling marijuana, CHP Sgt. Telfinues Preszler Jr. said.

The officer found plastic-wrapped bundles of marijuana in the back, with an estimated street value of US$20 million.

The truck was unlocked. Preszler said the engine may have overheated. He said there were no suspects and no real leads in the case.

“Somebody’s going be in some major trouble for walking away and leaving that quantity sitting on the side of the freeway,” Preszler said. “I’m glad I’m not him.”

The marijuana was turned over to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, which will request a court order to destroy it, spokeswoman Cindy Beavers said.

    I don’t know how many times I have told my Dad NOT to leave the truck. If he needs to take a leak, he should knock back the freakin brandy from his hip flask and pee in that!


    Mum’s gonna rip him a new one for this. There goes the timeshare apartment in Costa Del Sol!
