Sheriffs in Jackson County, Missouri, stopped 30-year-old Nathaniel Evans for traffic violations on Wednesday and smelled something funny when they asked for his license and registration.Writes the Kansas City Star:
During a search, they found 26 marijuana plants growing in a plastic tote rigged with a heat lamp powered by the vehicle's battery, said Sgt. Steve Leone of the Jackson County Sheriff's Department.
"We sometimes find mobile meth cooking labs, but we normally don't find a mobile marijuana-growing operation," Leone said Thursday.
It's unclear from the report whether Evans is employed as a motivational speaker but he did issue the following statement regarding his arrest: "Well laddi-freekin' dah!"
Just in case you have no idea what we're talking about:
Kansas City-area police pulled over a man from Maine earlier this week and discovered a mobile greenhouse. Naturally, it was an herb garden.
