Oregon Drug Bust of the Week: A U-Haul Full of Pot

Oregon police nab a guy driving a U-Haul packed with 30 pounds of marijuana.

This week's Oregon Drug Bust of the Week takes us over to Roseburg where on Sunday Oregon State Police stopped a U-Haul moving truck on I-5 and later found about 30 pounds of marijuana hidden in the back.

Police arrested Donald J. Ellwood, 53, of Minnesota and booked him on suspicion of unlawful possession and delivery of a controlled substance.

What really made this the Bust of the Week was the fact that the herb, valued at around $60,000, was wrapped in plastic and coated in mustard (as you can see in the image on the right). Yeah, mustard -- like the stuff you put on your sandwich. Apparently, it also goes excellent on dank-ass weed.

Actually, that mustard was probably meant to mask the scent of the pot. But yeah, that didn't work.
