Seaside Police received a report that a plastic tub was placed in a dumpster in the area of 13th & N. Holladay just before 11:00 a.m. Friday morning. Inside the tub were five plastic bags containing 51.18 ounces of marijuana with a street value of six to seven thousand dollars. The witness observed a white male in his 40’s with long sandy blonde hair place the tub in the dumpster, get back into a red older pickup with a white canopy and drive away. There was also a passenger who was described as a white male in his 40’s with short brown hair and goatee.
Based on the amount of marijuana and the way it was packaged in the plastic tub, police believe this was possibly a drop site and someone else was to pick it up later for further distribution.
Anyone who may have witnessed the drop or have information on the suspects or older red pickup with white canopy, are asked to call the Seaside Police Department at 503-738-6311.
