Late last week, the Miami-Dade Police Department held “routine” marijuana burn at a local landfill that is being kept secret for security purposes.
Basically, every so often they burn and destroy tons and tons of illegal drugs that were stockpiled during busts and kept during investigations.
So this past Friday, the Miami-Dade PD burned 225 barrels of marijuana.
The Miami-Dade Police Department conducted a routine drug burn Friday to get rid of stockpiles of confiscated drugs.
Police stood guard at a local landfill where 225 barrels of marijuana were sent to be destroyed. Each barrel is the equivalent of 55 gallons.
“It’s basically numerous narcotic cases that have been investigated, and this time we are able to destroy the evidence,” said Lt. Somoano.
“After a certain time the marijuana doesn’t have value whatsoever,” said Somoano. “That’s another reason why we are able to destroy it.”
If you saw a mysterious cloud of smoke somewhere near one of your local landfills this past Friday…well then, here’s your answer (lol).
