On Monday, the Ohio State Highway Patrol seized 71 pounds worth of marijuana and other drugs wrapped up as Christmas gifts. The cops found the drugs, worth an estimated $300,000, in a rented SUV pulled over for a routine moving violation.
The driver — a 31-year-old man from Eureka, Calif. — was pulled over just south of Toledo for allegedly driving too close to another vehicle. According to reports, a K-9 unit wound up investigating his SUV, which led to the discovery of the gift-wrapped contraband.
In addition to 71 pounds of marijuana, police say they seized 360 THC pills and a pound of hash wax oil, which had been split into 10 different wrapped packages (pictured above).
The driver was arrested for suspicion of drug trafficking and has a court appearance scheduled for next week.
