Marijuana Found Inside Used Car


New Member
A Eunice resident received more than he expected after purchasing a used car recently. There was $28,000 worth of marijuana stored under the back seat.

The owner discovered the drugs and contacted police, who recovered 20 bricks _ 22 pounds _ of marijuana.

The man told authorities he bought the vehicle in Hobbs. Lea County Drug Task Force Cmdr. Allyn Pennington said an investigation was beginning and declined to speculate about why the drugs may have been inside the vehicle.

However, Pennington praised the owner for contacting police.

"He did the right thing. That's what we encourage people to do," Pennington said.
