Cooler full of weed donated to Goodwill

MONROE, Wash. – Somebody donated a lot more than they intended to at a Goodwill in Washington State last week.

Goodwill employees in Monroe got a surprise when they opened a donated cooler and found marijuana.

Make that lots of marijuana.

Monroe police were called in to investigate.

“(The) employees were surprised when they opened the lid,” the police said in a tweet.

The Monroe Police Department said the cooler contained 3.75 pounds of pot, with an estimated street value of $24,000.

Police said Goodwill was examining its surveillance video to see if it can find an image of the person who may have dropped off the cooler.
