In the early morning hours of July 24, police in Clearwater, Florida, pulled over a car that was driving without its headlights on near the scene of a burglary.
But it was what was hanging out of the car's window that really grabbed the officer's attention: a marijuana plant casually sticking out of a window.
The back seat of the car was also loaded with other potted plants.
The car's passenger reportedly told police they had stolen the potted pot from an acquaintance who owed him a $100 drug debt.
The passenger, 20-year-old Justin Goodloe, and the driver, 19-year-old Allen Thomas Barnes, were both charged with manufacturing of marijuana. Further charges could be filed, pending a state attorney's investigation later this month.
