article imageMarijuana hidden in Chips Ahoy shipment

By RobotGod     Sep 22, 2007 in Crime
634 pounds of marijuana were seized early Friday morning on Cleveland’s west-side. It represents the second $1,000,000 seizure of marijuana in as many weeks. The crooks lost their cookies.
wtam.com reports that according to Cleveland Police Commander Gary Gingell, the pot was in the sleeper cab of a tractor trailer rig carrying Chips Ahoy cookies.
This bust is the result of a three-month investigation, courtesy of the Cleveland Division of Police, BCI&I and Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Office.
The shipment originated in Mexico and was transported to Cleveland through McCallen, Texas. Police will take ownership of the big rig under drug laws. They took the driver and two others into custody. The three Hispanic males have addresses in southern Texas.
The Mayor, Frank Jackson is praising the undercover work of his officers, and he says that breaking the grip of organized crime is a top quality of life issue in Cleveland.
It was just a few weeks back when they scored a shipment of pot riding along with frozen broccoli.
I thank God for these brave men who police our snack foods. We want a chocolate chip in every bite, not a contact high.
