Don't we pay cops to, uh, prevent crime and stuff? I'm all for legalization but it seems like some taxpayers are due a refund or something.

 

Truckload of marijuana goes up in smoke

 

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 21 (UPI) -- A truckload of confiscated marijuana that could be worth more than $1 million disappeared somewhere between Memphis and Louisville, Ky., sources say.

 

The more than 1,700 pounds of pot went missing during a controlled drug delivery going from Memphis to Louisville, The Memphis Commercial-Appeal reported Sunday.

 

A Memphis Police Department travel memo obtained by the newspaper said the drugs -- confiscated from a semi Feb. 10 -- were escorted to Louisville by Memphis police and Shelby County sheriff's deputies.

 

Sources said the officers saw several vehicles pull up to the tractor-trailer parked in Louisville, leave, come back, then leave again.

 

When they checked the contents of the truck it was empty, the sources said.

 

A federal agent in Memphis confirmed an investigation was being conducted, but said he could not reveal any other information, the newspaper said.

ahhh ok, now makes sense, It was meant to be a sting, except the cops never stung. Either that or the DEA tailed the cars and are setting up a bigger case...

 

From a longer article:

 

"Members of the Interstate Interdiction Unit pulled over a tractor trailer on Feb. 10 that contained 1,700 pounds of marijuana, according to a Memphis Police Department travel memo obtained under Tennessee's public records law.

 

Drug Enforcement Administration officials asked that the load be delivered to its destination in Louisville while officers trailed the shipment. MPD officers and two Shelby County sheriff's deputies accompanied the load, according to the memo.

 

Things went awry in the Bluegrass State.

 

According to law enforcement officials with knowledge of the delivery, officials watched the tractor trailer travel to its intended destination. Soon after, several vehicles pulled up, left and then came back. They stayed several hours and then left. When officials later checked the tractor trailer, the drugs were gone."

I heard from an eyewitness that the perps put up a big 10ft plywood sign that obstructed the surveilance crew's line of sight. The sign reportedly read "YOINK!"

 

 

Police are on the look out for this man:
