    AR: 743 Pounds Of Marijuana Found In Septic Tank Truck, Arizona Police Say

    CNN / January 29, 2010 / Staff


    The search of the truck was as awful as it sounds, said a state police spokesman.



    STORY HIGHLIGHTS
    • Police stopped truck on interstate, about 35 miles south of Tucson, Arizona
    • That much pot would be worth more than $400,000 on the street, police say
    • I-19, which runs directly into Mexico, is a major thoroughfare for drug and human trafficking
    • Drug cartels will "go to any length to conceal their product," police spokesman says
    (CNN) -- In a messy drug bust this week, investigators uncovered more than 700 pounds of marijuana stuffed in a septic tank truck full of human waste, Arizona police said Friday. And the search of the truck was as awful as it sounds.

    "Yeah, that really does suck," Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves told CNN. "It's a long way to go to make a bust."

    Hidden in the holding tank of the truck were 743 pounds of pot, worth about $409,000 on the street, police said in a news release. An officer pulled over the septic tank truck Wednesday after a check of the license showed it was invalid, police said. The truck was headed northbound on I-19 and stopped about 35 miles south of Tucson, Arizona. Police patrolling the area tend to be more vigilant, Graves said, because the interstate -- which leads directly to Mexico -- is a major thoroughfare for drug and human trafficking.

    After the stop, the officer discovered that the commercial vehicle markings on the truck were also invalid. A subsequent search revealed the bales of marijuana in red and orange packages amid the waste. "It just shows how desperate these drug cartels are," Graves said. "They'll go to any lengths to conceal their product. We've seen it concealed [among] watermelons, bell peppers. This is the first time we've seen it concealed in human waste." Police arrested the driver, Leonard Salcido, 24, of Tucson, and charged him with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale and transportation of marijuana, police said.

    The bust was not the largest for Arizona police. In 2008, police found more than 2,000 pounds of marijuana in a fake UPS truck, Graves said.
    Wednesday's smelly pot was just one major bust this week. On Thursday, police confiscated $681,000 worth of methamphetamine concealed in the false floor of a vehicle.

    The driver was stopped for speeding on I-17 near Camp Verde, Arizona, police said. The officer asked to search the vehicle and found 15 pounds of meth, police said.



    Danng. Human Ingenuity at its best. Just imagine for a second the sheer genius of some of these guys. Now that doesn't mean I agree with the cartels, nor would I want any of that after its been in a septic tank... but dang! Makes you think.

    An excellent example of why weed should be legal.

    Letting people smoke a plant far less harmful and more pleasurable than tobacco > Forcing people to smoke human waste
    Any fool can make a rule and any fool will mind it.

    ^ and smell like ****
    any relationship that matters - a friendship, a family, a romance, a band - anything - is a perilous and fragile thing because along with all the amazing experiences and creations that can come from something so intimate and exhausting comes the possibility for things to crumble and shatter or whither and die. when that happens, it's easy to forget what was precious amidst all the disaster. we should always carry our history with us but never let it bury us.

    If weed was legal, they'd do it with coke, meth, etc. There's no end to the drug trade.

    Uh, i think your far more likely to OD on coke or meth rather then cannabis. And I'm pretty sure other drugs tend to be more lethal and have more negative health effects. But what would i know.
