Ana leaves behind 12+ lbs. of pot
ATLANTIC BEACH, NC (WCTI) — More than 12 pounds of pot – 12.35 pounds to be exact – washed up on the main part of Atlantic Beach, according to Atlantic Beach Police Chief Jeff Harvey.
Chief Harvey tells us some people walking along the beach Sunday called 911 about a suspicious package on Atlantic Beach, in the area off the circle. Firefighters responded and then called in police, who opened up the package and found the marijuana. It was wrapped in brown paper and taped up.
It appears the package had been in the water for quite some time. Chief Harvey describes barnacles and other growth on the outside of the pot package. He says they have no idea where the package came from and there are no markings on it.
