Police Find Nearly a Ton of Pot

JACKSON COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) — Deputies in Jackson County, Ohio say it could be the biggest pot bust they’ve ever seen.

Now, nearly a ton of marijuana is off the streets, and five people are behind bars.

Wednesday a trucking company in North Carolina called the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department and told them a large amount of pot was hidden in an inflatable slide.

The 975 pound inflatable was supposed to be delivered to a Jackson address, but when officers looked into it they found more than just a toy.

“After the scene was secured another tractor trailer showed up, for the same address. We asked the driver for the bill and what it was and he said it’s another blow up toy, 975 pounds. So we had a dog hit on it and low and behold we have almost a ton of seized marijuana,” Jackson County Sheriff John Shasteen said.

Jackson County deputies drove to North Carolina to confirm their suspicions and then allowed the company to make the delivery. That’s when the made the arrest.  From WSAZ
