Seattle thrift store employee finds 2.5-pound bag of pot in donation bin

Police in Seattle are reminding residents that thrift stores can’t resell marijuana after a 2.5-pound bag of pot was found in a donation bin.

An employee at a thrift store in North Seattle called police Thursday to notify them about the discovery, KATU reports.

“Donating to thrift shops is a terrific way to give a second life to your well-loved Velcro sneakers, keyboards or flannel zebra jammies," the police said in a statement on Friday, but added that bags containing marijuana are not welcome.

The marijuana found at the store was confiscated and put into evidence for destruction, KATU reports.
