Santa is going to need to find another stash of cookies.
Yesterday we heard the saga of the elderly couple arrested for carrying 60 pounds of weed that they said was for "Christmas gifts". Now we take you to a similar story which unfolded in Lafayette County, Missouri.
According to The Kansas City Star, The Missouri Highway Patrol pulled over a U-Haul and found 23.2 pounds of weed cookies, more than 4 pounds of marijuana flower, and a gun. The Highway Patrol tweeted about their haul:
2 occupants of a truck were arrested for drug trafficking on I-70 at the 51 mm following a traffic stop. A search of the cargo area revealed 23.2 pounds of THC Infused cookies & 4.61 pounds of marijuana. These are NOT the kind of cookies Santa wants! #NotSantasCookies pic.twitter.com/UiMqgqU3Fw— MSHP Troop A (@MSHPTrooperA) December 21, 2017
One thing we'd like to nitpick? The assertion that "These are NOT the kind of cookies Santa wants! #NotSantasCookies". We actually spoke to Santa Claus. He'd very much appreciate them:
In any event, the two men driving the U-Haul were arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance with intent to distribute, and for illegal use of a firearm. They haven't been formally charged.
