Ton of Marijuana Found After West Adams Traffic Stop in L.A. by Torrance Cops, They Say
A strange, one-ton pot post went down following a traffic stop in the West Adams District last week by Torrance cops with a drug-sniffing dog, police said late Wednesday.
It all started at Adams and Hauser boulevards Friday. The sequence of events is a bit confusing to us, but we're guessing that after a little weed was allegedly found during the initial stop search warrants were served leading to a bigger score.
(Torrance PD confirms search warrants were served). In any case ...
... 2.648 pounds of cannabis were allegedly found and eight people were arrested, including, according to City News Service:

Now, what were Torrance cops doing so far from home?
They're not saying. But we'll take a wild guess and say they probably smelled this one from miles away.
