And you thought northeast Indiana was a staid, stick-in-the-mud region:
A man is being held without bond in the Allen County Lockup after police say they seized more than 6,000 pounds of marijuana from his rented home.
Sheriff Ken Fries says the drugs seized Thursday could have a street value of more than $6 million.
Twenty-nine-year-old Matthew McChesney was arrested after police stopped him for speeding Wednesday. Police say they found more than 10 pounds of marijuana and about $100,000 in cash in his car.
The self-described "marijuana enthusiast" said the DEA's estimate of $1,000 seemed reasonable, but that $1,500 was more realistic. He said he thinks that police intentionally place a lower value on a drug to make others who dabble in the market question the higher prices they might be paying to dealers.
I wondered about that, so I did some Googling -- you can find the price of anything online. That $1,000 a pound does seem a tad on the conservative side.
