Breaking Bud

Alleged drug smuggler left 139 lbs. of pot in rental car, then went back for it

A man in Albuquerque, New Mexico, was arrested after he allegedly returned a rental car to the airport but accidentally left 139 pounds of marijuana inside — and then he went back to try to retrieve it.

The staffers at the rental company first became suspicious when they found several black bags in the car, containing the contraband weed. The man, David Ung, showed up later in the day asking to get his bags back.

He has now been charged with possession of marijuana, with intent to distribute.

Watch the report below, from the local NBC affiliate. The real question, though: Did he make sure to return the car with a full tank of gas? --Eric Kleefeld
