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

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

William Dale Crock of Cave City, Ark., was in jail Friday on a marijuana possession charge, plus traffic and seat belt violations.

Dallas police say Crock was arrested Wednesday when bundles of marijuana were discovered under the casket's cover and pillow.

Sr. Cpl. Kevin Janse told said the van turned up during surveillance on a suspected drug house. Police stopped the van in Mesquite after noticing Crock not wearing a seat belt. Officers also said he allegedly ran a red light and did an improper lane change.

A drug-sniffing dog alerted officers to the casket in the van.

The online records of the Lew Sterrett Justice Center had no listing for an attorney for Crock.
