    25 Pounds of Pot in Prison Fruit

    EDINBURG, Texas - A police department's gift of fruit to a Texas prison turned out to contain 25 pounds of marijuana.

    The illegal harvest that was missed in an earlier search was discovered by inmates at the Segovia Unit unpacking the crate.

    Edinburg police Chief Ruirino Munoz says the fruit originally came from a produce truck that also had about 1,000 pounds of pot that was confiscated.

    Loads of legitimate produce that are found to have yielded drugs are often barred from being sent on to the intended location.

    Munoz says the Segovia Unit near Edinburg accepts such food donations, which are inspected by police before being sent to the prison. Munoz says this time the additional marijuana apparently was missed by officers and drug-sniffing dogs.

    Prison spokesman Jason Clark says inmates who reported finding the drug on Friday were strip searched to make sure nobody kept any of the marijuana.

    so wait, the inmates reported that they found it? why wouldn't they keep it?!

    Why didn't they keep it? How could inmates keep hidden 25 pounds of weed? And if they were to get caught with it, wouldn't that extend their prison sentence? Swim might like marijuana, but he would like getting out of prison a little more. If swim was on death row or had 25 yrs or something that might change the situation a bit though.
