SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Police in California said a truck crashed and many of its bags of illegally carried marijuana were snatched up by bystanders before officers arrived.

San Jose police said the truck, which crashed at about 12:50 a.m. Wednesday and wound up on its side near Oakridge Mall, was abandoned by the time police got there and many large bags of marijuana were taken by pedestrians and motorists, the San Jose Mercury News reported Friday.

Investigators said the remaining bags were rounded up by officers and they found a loaded handgun inside the truck.

Police said they were searching for the driver of the truck and the people who picked up the bags of marijuana.
