When Chicago police installed so-called “cannabis amnesty boxes” in the city’s airports earlier this month, the idea was to provide a safe repository for travelers to dump their weed.
But in that, one apparent thief saw an opportunity. Authorities in the Windy City said this week that someone snatched an item from a box located at Midway Airport.
Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Chicago Sun-Times that an individual “removed an unknown object from inside” from the box on Monday evening.
“Tampering with them, or attempting to remove anything placed inside, is a crime, and detectives are investigating this matter,” Guglielmi told the Sun-Times.
