Today’s coolest donation to a thrift store is five pounds of marijuana with a street value of $7,500.
A Sarasota, Fl thrift store employee at The Pines came across a large duffel bag of pot in the thrift boxes this week while sorting donations.
Donations are frequently dropped off and an employee noticed a tote that was left sometime between Wednesday and Friday last week. He set it aside because he wasn’t sure what was in it.
On Saturday, the employee went to look through the tote and found four vacuum sealed bags inside. He cut into one and found marijuana, then immediately called police.
Police took the drugs into custody and are reviewing surveillance video to determine if they can find who dropped off the tote, which had 4.7 pounds of marijuana inside of it. It was not determined if .3 lbs had been pinched by the middleman or not.
Just remember it’s not the gift but the thought that counts.
