  • Cooler full of marijuana donated to Goodwill in Washington

"Employees [were] surprised when they opened the lid", Monroe police wrote over Twitter.

The 3.75 pounds found in the cooler amounts to 59 ounces above the legal limit. The police in Monroe have estimated the weed as worth almost $24,000. "Normally they find money or jewelry. This was quite a surprise to employees".

Multiple people have laid claim to the container on social media while police are reviewing security footage to see where the "generous donation" came from.

Police tried to track down the owner of the cooler, but they're unsure if it was donated at this location or at a Goodwill trailer that parks in another town. She said, "The possibilities (of) how it got there are endless".

The pot is now being held in the department evidence room, and will stay there until it goes to a scheduled drug burn for incineration, Willis said. "It's sitting in our evidence, waiting for the yearly burn of that type of evidence".

Goodwill say that is it common to receive unusual donations such as forgotten money left in the pockets of clothes, but not 60 ounces of marijuana.

"In 2013, three human skulls were found", Katherine Boury, a spokesperson for Goodwill, told KTLA. One of the skulls was from a Native American that was more than 100-years old.
