Florida Man Tried To Steal Marijuana That Washed Ashore, Police Say

posted by Jessi Minneci - 

Authorities arrested a Florida man who they say was trying to steal marijuana that had washed ashore on the beach.

Robert Kelley was one of many on the beach near Jungle Hut Park in Flagler County that began taking the packages of pot.

However, when deputies from the Flagler County Sheriff's Officer arrived on the scene, Kelley was less than forthcoming about his new find. 

Kelley reportedly did not approach the deputies or tell them about the drugs he found.

Kelley later told deputies he had taken the pot and was keeping it in his car to wait for their arrival. Inside the vehicle car, officials found an 11-pound brick of marijuana that had been wrapped in a brown beach towel.

Kelley was arrested for possession of marijuana over 20 grams.

The Sheriff's Office had recovered nearly 100 pounds of pot that had washed up onshore over the previous two days.
