SCRANTON, Pa., Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Police in Pennsylvania said they caught an alleged marijuana dealer trying to destroy a plant by eating it while officers searched his home.

Scranton and South Abington Township police officers said they served a search warrant Monday on the Scranton home of Jeremiah Carmody, 33, and the suspect attempted to eat a marijuana plant to prevent it from being logged as evidence by officers, the Scranton Times-Tribune reported Tuesday.

Police said they seized the plant along with 4 pounds of marijuana, $2,600 in cash, four digital scales and drug paraphernalia found in the home.

Carmody was charged with manufacturing, delivery and possession with the intent to deliver marijuana, criminal use of a communication facility, possession of body armor and other drug-related offenses.
