Man Arrested After Pot Found In Casket

A casket minus a cadaver yielded nearly 100 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop in Dallas.

William Dale Crock of Cave City, Ark., was in jail Friday on a marijuana possession charge, plus traffic and seat belt violations.

Dallas police say Crock was arrested Wednesday when bundles of marijuana were discovered under the casket's cover and pillow.

The Dallas Morning News reports the bust began with surveillance on a suspected drug house and the loading of a van. Police followed the vehicle, pulling it over on suspected traffic violations.

A drug-sniffing dog alerted officers to the marijuana. The online records of the Lew Sterrett Justice Center had no listing for an attorney for Crock.

    I bet that's some killer weed.

    I'll bet the judge will give him a real STIFF penalty.
