Pennsylvania police had a drug bust literally gift-wrapped for them last week when they arrested a Florida man with about 20 pounds of marijuana in boxes wrapped as Christmas presents.
Police pulled over 38-year-old Randy Jesus Valdivia, of Surfside, Fla., on Interstate 80 near State College and asked to search his vehicle after observing “criminal activity indicators.”
Valdivia consented to the search of his 2014 Dodge Caravan and the police discovered the gift-wrapped boxes.
The pot-packed presents contained 40 vacuum-sealed plastic bags with about $160,000, worth of marijuana. Valdivia was taken to Centre County Correctional Facility and hit with a felony charge of possession with intent to deliver.
