Forgotten stash of marijuana donated to Goodwill

Employees discovered the marijuana while sorting donations

A Goodwill store got more than it bargained for when an employee lifted the lid on a donated cooler to find nearly four pounds of weed in the container. Police are reviewing surveillance footage in hopes they can find a suspect. "Police were called", the Monroe Police Department tweeted on Tuesday, along with an image of the cooler with the bags inside.

The stash was well over the one ounce of cannabis people in Washington are permitted - closer to 60 times the limit, in fact. The sale, distribution, and cultivation of marijuana remain a federal offense.

"This is a reminder to check your purse, pockets, or cooler to make sure you're donating the items you mean to", said Katherine Boury, a spokesperson for Goodwill.

"Employees [were] surprised when they opened the lid", Monroe police wrote over Twitter. Police said it will stay in the evidence locker until it's destroyed. Nobody has stepped forward claiming responsibility for "donating" the weed, though Officer Willis said that "many have jokingly claimed responsibility on social media".

Five large bags of marijuana were found in a donated cooler to Goodwill. Employees at the store discovered the weed while sorting through donations. One of the skulls was from a Native American that was more than 100-years old.
