Wichita police in Kansas are hot on the tail of mice that chewed through bags of marijuana kept in a police storage facility, KMBC.com reported. The three packages were evidence seized during arrests in 2009.
The rodents apparently nested in the pot and ate some of it. “We’ve got some mice that are stoners,” Police Lt. Doug Nolte said. The animals were probably attracted to the scent, he added.
At first look, authorities thought the evidence was tampered with, but after a thorough investigation police believe they know who the culprit is.
Police said they believe several mice were involved. They also unveiled a sketch of one of the sneaky perps with big ears, little beady eyes and a long tail.
But the sketch may not be very helpful. The mice remain at large.
No drawn-out investigation or jury trial will be necessary. An exterminator has been called.
Other outlets were quick to make sport of the pothead varmints, “There are some mice in Kansas with major munchies,” MSN wrote.
