DALLAS (AP) — A casket without a cadaver yielded nearly 100 pounds (45 kilograms) of marijuana after a traffic stop in Dallas.

William Dale Crock of Cave City, Arkansas, was in jail Friday on a marijuana possession charge, plus traffic violations.

Dallas police say Crock was arrested Wednesday when bundles of marijuana were discovered under the casket’s cover and pillow.

Cpl. Kevin Janse said the van turned up during surveillance on a
suspected drug house. Police stopped the van, after noticing Crock was
not wearing a seat belt. Officers also said he allegedly ran a red
light and did an improper lane change.

A drug-sniffing dog alerted officers to the casket in the van.

There were no records available listing a lawyer representing Crock.
