Cops in Fontana hit the payload last night, after working with drug enforcement and ICE agents, when they found a fortune in marijuana stashed inside some figurines. The authorities had the home in the 8900 block of Reseda Avenue under surveillance for several days, which "paid off when someone dropped off a load of ceramic donkeys, and about 1,500 pounds of marijuana, with a street value of $1.5 million, was found inside the statues," according to The investigation remains ongoing, and no arrests were reported.
