K-9 helps police in Pennsylvania seize 60 pounds of marijuana, THC-laced candy

Officials with the Johnstown Police Department seized 60 pounds of marijuana with the help of K-9 Thor on Wednesday.

WJAC reported 27-year-old Andrew Colvin was arrested on suspicion of trying to bring the drugs into the Johnstown, Pennsylvania, area after police executed a search warrant on his car.

WTAJ reported police also found a handgun, large amounts of cocaine, crystal meth, fentanyl, MDA and THC edibles, including edibles in the form of Nerds Rope candy.

“We just want to make sure that parents are aware that these edibles are out there," Johnstown police Capt. Chad Miller said. "They are in other parts of the county and are making their way into Pennsylvania. Just like you would check in previous years for needles, razor blades, make sure you check with the wrapper for the candies and make sure they’re not edible THC candies."
