An act of charity may end badly for one donor to a Venango County Salvation Army outlet.
Sugarcreek Borough police were called when outlet workers found a large plastic bag of marijuana among some donated clothes.
Police Chief Matt Carlson said he suspects the owner of the drugs has noticed them missing by now, if only because the bag contained a “substantial quantity” of pot.
Police were working with store employees to determine who donated the clothes and when. Police said the drugs were found earlier this week.
The chief said this isn’t the first time officers have investigated an unusual item among donated clothing saying, “we’ve had guns ... cash ... rings, and now marijuana.”
