Pa. police: Suspect tried to eat marijuana plant
SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) -- Perhaps it was a case of the munchies.
Police in northeastern Pennsylvania say an alleged pot dealer tried to destroy evidence by eating a marijuana plant.
The Times-Tribune reports that 33-year-old Jeremiah Carmody faces several drug-related charges following events on Monday in Scranton.
Police say Carmody tried to eat the plant after authorities went to his house to serve a warrant.
Authorities ended up seizing the remains of the plant, four pounds of marijuana, digital scales, $2,600 in cash and drug paraphernalia.
Carmody was in Lackawanna County Prison awaiting arraignment Monday night. It wasn't immediately clear Tuesday if he had a lawyer.
