174 Pounds of Marijuana Seized at Hartsfield Jackson Airport

Seven suitcases filled to their brims with marijuana were seized at Atlanta, Georgia’s Hartsfield Jackson International Airport last week. Four people were arrested. Police dogs at the airport detected the pot when suitcases were unloaded from a flight arriving from Seattle, Wash. The street value of the marijuana was around $700,000, the police said. The suitcases were placed on the baggage carousel and officers waited for their owners to claim them before making the arrests. The four all claimed that someone else had packed the bags or they were retrieving the bags for someone else.
