AK-47, 300 pounds of marijuana seized in Orange Cove
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Police in Orange Cove are looking for suspects wanted in connection with a big pot bust.
It all began when officers tried to pull over a pickup truck, speeding in the area of Adams Avenue and Wakefield last week. After a short chase, the driver pulled over and five men ran off.
Eventually, the driver lost control of the truck, and ended up in an irrigation canal. Officers found 300 pounds of marijuana in the bed of the pickup, but the suspect was nowhere to be found.
A loaded AK-47 assault rifle was also found in the vehicle. So far, no arrests have been made.
Anyone with information should call the Orange Cove Police Department.
