Texas police seize 21 pounds of weed that was sent to the wrong address

As the debate over legalizing marijuana in Texas continues to rage in the courts and at the ballot box, there are some people who still don't realize it's illegal and are going to great lengths to get it.

But let me ask you a question, especially if you are pro-legalization: If a package of weed showed up at your door, would you call the law, take it, or wait to see who picks it up?

In Harris County, Texas, cops there shared the details of a huge bust after two suspects allegedly tried to retrieve their lost Mary Jane.

According to the May 2 post, officers from Constable Mark Herman's office responded to the 5000 block of Roth Forest Lane on May 1, 2024, in reference to a suspicious vehicle.

The report goes on to say that when officers arrived, they arrested two suspects and identified them as Jordan Haberstroh and Ricardo Ortiz.

Find out that the two men were in the area looking for several packages of marijuana that were delivered to the wrong address.

And it was a lot of weed: 21.5 pounds, packed in several boxes. The duo also offered to pay the person who called the police to NOT notify law enforcement.


It also didn't help that they were wearing t-shirts with the same logo printed on both the packaging and the bags in their vehicle. They were booked into the Harris County Jail.
