Police in Pennsylvania say a "substantial quantity" of marijuana was found in a bag of clothes recently donated to the Salvation Army and are asking for the public's help in identifying the accidental pot donor.

According to Sugarcreek Borough Police, employees at Franklin Salvation Army in Venango County "discovered a baggie that contained a green leafy matter that was marijuana" on Feb. 18 and called police.

Police are working with the Salvation Army to identify the donor and are asking anyone with information about the donation to call them.

Sugarcreek Borough Police Chief Matt Carlson told the Oil City Derrick it's not the first time the police have been called to investigate an illicit donation.

"We've had guns ... cash ... rings, and now marijuana," Carlson said.
