Colorado woman finds $50,000 worth of cocaine and two handguns hidden in her garden. And we thought we were having a good day.
61-year-old Joanne Albertson of Grand Junction was tending her garden as usual when she discovered a package while planting potatoes. She discovered two revolvers, along with bullets and several packages containing a total of 2 1/2 pounds of cocaine.
The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports: Sheriff's spokeswoman Heather Benjamin says Albertson has rented the house for three years, and none of the weapons or drugs is believed to be hers. Benjamin recalls that a SWAT team raided the property seven years ago, but there is no way of knowing if the drugs and guns found Wednesday were associated with the search.
