Driver of crashed car found hiding pot
Victoria police are asking for witnesses to come forward after an early morning crash led to the seizure of cannibis destined for a marijuana dispensary.
The incident began when officers spotted the vehicle running a red light at View and Douglas. The driver took off and the car struck another vehicle a short distance away. The driver of the second car was taken to hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Police found the driver of the suspect car not far from the accident scene -- attempting to hide 2 large boxes of marijuana. Investigators determined the marijuana was destined for an unnamed cannabis shop.
Police are recommending several charges including possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and flight from police.
No name has been released yet.
VicPd want to speak to anyone who saw a newer, grey BMW driving the wrong way on Yates Street between Douglas and Blanshard streets between 8:30-9:00 a.m. Monday.
