Anyone lose track of $500,000 worth of marijuana, bundled in 35 bales and left to float near the Marina del Rey harbor? "The bales were found floating in the water by members of the Los Angeles County sheriff's marine operations shortly after noon Wednesday," reports City News Service. Of course, if it's actually your pot (not likely, we know) you may have some trouble getting it back now: The bales were taken to the sheriff's station, and have been turned over to the folks at U.S. Customs and Border Protection for further investigation.
