Man finds $4,800 in pot in auction painting

submitted on July 27, 2010 by gabyperu in "Member's Lounge"

CANTON, Ga. – A Cherokee County man found a hidden treasure in a painting he bought at an auction: four pounds of marijuana. Gordon Clement, 80, discovered the pot stashed inside of the painting, which he bought at a post office auction about five years ago. He found the drugs last weekend when he tried to sell the artwork at another auction.

Clement planned to ask $25 for the piece. Police said the marijuana was worth about $4,800.

Alarmed, he called his lawyer and turned the painting over to authorities.

    Surprised no one could smell the goods inside.

    Post office auction? What were they doing with it? Must have been a special delivery with no return address.
