SAN JOSE (CBS/AP) — San Jose police are looking for pedestrians and motorists who grabbed bags of marijuana that spilled onto the road from a truck that crashed.

Police say the bystanders swooped in and grabbed most of the pot after the driver of the truck ran away from the accident early Wednesday morning.

When officers arrived, they found a few remaining bags of marijuana and a loaded handgun inside the truck.

KCBS’ Matt Bigler Reports:

Police said they are also looking for the truck’s driver, who was carrying the marijuana illegally. Neither the driver nor the people who took the marijuana have been identified.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
