(Newser) – Perhaps it was a case of the munchies: Police in northeastern Pennsylvania say an alleged pot dealer tried to destroy evidence by eating a marijuana plant. According to local media, 33-year-old Jeremiah Carmody faces several drug-related charges following events yesterday in Scranton, when police say they went to his house to serve a warrant and he tried to eat the plant. Authorities ended up seizing the remains of the plant, four pounds of marijuana, digital scales, $2,600 in cash, and drug paraphernalia, and Carmody spent the night in prison.
