A man in North Carolina got a knock at the door, it was the police. He had no idea why they were there, but immediately came clean about his dirty little secret hiding in the backyard saying, “I guess you’re here about the opium.”
Spoiler alert…they weren’t.
The police found poppy plants worth an estimated $500 million! WRAL reports, “The sheriff’s office says Cody Xiong was arrested and charged with manufacture and trafficking by possession. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
Officials don’t think opium was being made on the property.
“The plants are being harvested here, and sent somewhere else where the opium is being produced from the plant,” Capt. Jason Reid said told WBTV.”
