Man Nabbed With $300k Worth Of Cannabis Wrapped As Christmas Presents


A man has been arrested in the US after he was caught on Wednesday with a truck stuffed full of cannabis wrapped to look like Christmas presents.

Daniel Yates, 31, was pulled over by Ohio state troopers for following too closely.

During inspection, it was found that the trunk and back seat of the truck was packed with boxes wrapped to look like Christmas presents. A drug-sniffing police dog alerted troopers to the contents.

Once unwrapped, officers found approximately 32kg of cannabis, 360 THC pills and half a kilogram of hash wax oil. The haul’s estimated street value was $330,000.

Yates was charged with drug possession and trafficking, both felonies. He faces up to 16 years in prison and up to a $30,000 fine if convicted.
