NATIONAL BRIEFING / AND FINALLY

Times Wire Reports

A casket minus a cadaver yielded nearly 100 pounds of marijuana after a traffic stop in Dallas.

William Dale Crock of Cave City, Ark., was in jail on a marijuana possession charge, plus traffic and seat belt violations. Dallas police say Crock was arrested Wednesday when bundles of marijuana were discovered inside a casket.

Police stopped a van in Mesquite after noticing Crock not wearing a seat belt. A drug-sniffing dog alerted officers to the casket in the van.
