PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. — Suspects fleeing from police allegedly tossed some 17 bales of marijuana from their SUV during a high speed chase last week.
In dashcam video posted by the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office on March 7, multiple packages can clearly be seen flying from the suspect vehicle, landing along Interstate 10 and sometimes exploding. Police ultimately seized 374 pounds of pot from a house connected to the case, according to a statement.
The driver and his passenger told police that they were given $1,000 in exchange for transporting the “unknown packages” to Phoenix, Gawker reported.
Police believe that several bales of pot went missing from the roadside. Due to the chaotic conditions, police were not able to follow up on reports that several passers-by snatched up the drugs and fled.
