Mice Eat, Nest in Evidence Bags Filled with Pot: Cops

Authorities found mice in three evidence bags filled with drugs



    New Shoulder Replacement Procedure Gives the Gift of Movement
    Authorities in Kansas say mice in their evidence storage facility found themselves a home in three bags of marijuana.

    Mice chewed into three bags of marijuana at a police evidence storage facility in Wichita, Kan., police say. The critters managed to eat some of the stash, from a 2009 case, and even nested in the drug, they said.

    Wichita police Lt. Doug Nolte said the occurance is a common one. He said marijuana's strong odor apparently attracts the animals.

    "We’ve got some mice that are stoners," Nolte told The Kansas City Star.

    Authorities originally thought it was a case of evidence tampering, but after an investigation, they were able to identify the four-legged suspects, which remain on the loose.

    Authorities said an exterminator has been called and the bags of evidence resealed and reweighed.
