Up in smoke

Posted By on Wed, Sep 22, 2010 at 9:44 AM

There's a Cheech and Chong bit in here somewhere. From the LRPD:

At 11:50 p.m. last night (9-21-2010), Officers responded to 7520 N. Chicot Rd. to assist the fire department on a structure fire. The fire department advised communications that the police department was required to take possession of some peculiar property. Officers advised that there was a large amount of marijuana located inside the residence. The Narcotics Unit was notified and responded to the residence. Detectives contacted the owner of the residence via phone, and received information that it was being rented to Jason Wilbanks, W/M 02-15-74. While the detectives and the LRFD were conducting their investigations, Officers noticed a white 1998 Chevy Malibu across the street from the residence, and a white male in the vehicle was paying close attention to the activity. They made contact with Jason Wilbanks, the renter of the residence, inside the vehicle. He was transported to the Northwest Substation and charged with Possession with Intent and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. The marijuana, sixty-five pounds, were transported to the property room and stored. I am working on getting photos of the Marijuana to send to everyone.

The pot has been boxed.
