Hijacked Trucker Inadvertently Leads Police To 12 Tons Of Weed
A trucker traveling through Tustin unintentionally led police officers to find 12 tons of marijuana worth $7 million hidden in his truck when he nearly got hijacked this week.
Two men in a van had driven next to the unidentified trucker and flashed a badge at him, but the trucker was skeptical they were actually police officers. He pulled over to a business in Tustin and had a armed security guard contact the police, according to City News Service. The hijackers lingered around for a bit and left before law enforcement arrived.
However, when officers inspected the truck, they found bricks of marijuana hidden within the electronics cargo the trucker was delivering to San Diego. They don't suspect the trucker knew about the pot.
