DALLAS, June 26 (UPI) -- Police in Dallas said a man accused of possessing nearly 100 pounds of marijuana was attempting to transport the cannabis in a casket.

Investigators said they saw someone loading objects into the rear of a Chevy van at a suspected drug house at about 3 p.m. Wednesday and officers followed the van after it left, the Dallas Morning News reported Friday.

Police followed the van out of the city and pulled it over for alleged traffic violations. Police dogs indicated the presence of drugs in the vehicle and a search warrant was obtained to look inside the van, where 12 bundles of cannabis were found hidden under the pillow and cover of a casket.

Crock was taken to the Dallas County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
