Someone donated a cooler full of marijuana to Goodwill

Did someone forget where they stashed their drugs or were they just being generous? Employees at a Monroe, Washington, Goodwill store received a surprise donation over the weekend: a cooler with a little over three pounds of marijuana.

Monroe police were called in, and after investigating, they determined that the cooler indeed was filled with weed, and over $24,000 worth in street value. Monroe PD acknowledged the Goodwill employee’s surprise when they opened the cooler.

“(The) employees were surprised when they opened the lid.”

So far it’s unclear who dropped the cooler off. Detectives are working with Goodwill and reviewing surveillance footage. If you have any information on the mysterious marijuana donation, please contact Monroe the PD.
