Volunteers sorting through a collection bin found a 2-pound bag of marijuana worth about $8,000, according to the Boulder Police blotter.
Sarah Huntley, spokesperson for the Boulder Police Department, said the police plan to destroy all the marijuana.
“The bag has a street value of about $8,000,” Huntley said. “Our plan is to destroy it, which is our policy with all drugs.”
Huntley said the bag was found outside of Barnes & Noble at 2915 Pearl Street in a collection bin accepting clothing donations. Volunteers turned the bag over to the police at 12:15 p.m. Thursday.
Huntley said no evidence accompanied the bag of marijuana.
“Nothing else was left with it or left in the bag,” Huntley said. “At this point, it’s just a closed incident. We have no way of knowing who is involved.”
Huntley said the police cannot yet determine if the incident is part of a drug deal.
“With no identifying information, we can only speculate,” Huntley said.
