(KFYI News) – Two security guards at a Phoenix shipping company are under arrest for allegedly taking marijuana-infused chocolate home from the office.
Phoenix police say they got a call from OnTrac Shipping near 44th St. and University Dr. that the business had received a package from California that was on its way to another destination, that was clearly labeled as cannabis-laced chocolate. The package weighed approximately 50 pounds.
Before police arrived, employees reported seeing two security guards go into the storage room where the chocolate was being kept, carrying empty backpacks. A short while later, employees reported the guards left the storage room with the backpacks, which appeared to have something inside of them.
Detectives got search warrants for the men's homes, which are both in Goodyear. In one of the homes, police say they found about 20 pounds of the pot-infused chocolate, along with weapons and ammunition, and evidence that the men intended to sell the chocolate.
David Bryant and Eric Whittington – who are both former Goodyear police officers – were booked into jail on charges of theft and possession of drugs for sale.
