Hey, the devil needs his lettuce too…
Two men were arrested in Indiana recently when it was discovered they were concealing 260 pounds of marijuana in a legitimate shipment of lettuce. According to UPI, authorities searched the truck during a routine commercial-vehicle inspection and noticed some of the lettuce looked a bit more like “baby green.”
Authorities claim Florida residents Jorge Blanco-Diaz, 33, and Adan Labanino Delacruz, 40, were on their way from Colorado to Florida with the shipment and were arrested on felony charges of dealing marijuana.
