Fisherman lands drugs haul catch

A good day fishing is better than...I can't remember now...

A fisherman who thought he had struck lucky with a massive catch was astonished to find he had landed a major drugs stash.
Having seen his float disappear on Ireland's River Liffey, he then reeled in a huge package of cannabis wrapped in plastic.

The submerged haul was estimated to be worth 400,000 euros, Irish police said.

The unidentified fisherman alerted gardai and police divers discovered 12 more packages of the illegal drug.

I'd be pissed if I owned the stash. That's pretty smart though. Must have taken some time to waterproof.

I can't believe he turned it in... I'm not saying be a drug dealer but to sell what you have might be a good idea!
