School police seize six garbage bags full of pot plants

OAKLAND, CA

"I think the weed was sticking out of the window," said Sgt. Jonathan Bellusa.

Officers stopped the van at around 9:50 a.m. at Embarcadero Street and Fifth Avenue, Bellusa said. He estimates that the marijuana plants probably have a street value of about $20,000.

The driver, a man in his 50s, was arrested and sent to North County jail, Bellusa said.
