Albuquerque man forgets that he had 140 pounds of weed in rental car

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Albuquerque man is in custody for allegedly leaving nearly 140 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of a returned rental car.

Albuquerque police say 40-year-old David Ung is being held on $10,000 bond on suspicion of possession of drugs with intent to distribute.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that Ung refused to talk to police without an attorney after he was arrested Tuesday.

It was unclear Wednesday if he has a lawyer yet.

Police say 139 pounds of high-grade marijuana packed in several black trash bags were found in Ung’s rental car.

Airport police say Ung had dropped off a car, but returned saying he left a bag inside the vehicle.

By the time he returned, police had already found the marijuana packaged in 124 individual heat-sealed clear bags.
