Texas brothers busted for selling marijuana cookies

The brothers had cookie marijuana edibles including white macadamia, chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin.

A pair of brothers have been arrested in Kingsville after police caught wind of them operating out of their home selling marijuana and edibles.

Marcello and Armando Polanco were arrested after police watched their house for four weeks and then raided it with a warrant.

Police estimate the two had been operating for about four years.

Once inside the home they found almost six pounds of cannabis along with drug paraphernalia and several flavors of cookie edibles including white macadamia, chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin.

Police also found small amounts of methamphetamine and cocaine, an AK-47 and a small caliber rifle.

The cookies were laid out in packs of four which were going for $10 apiece.

“In their interviews, they mentioned that they were providing those for medicinal use to older people who could not smoke,” Kingsville Police Chief Ricardo Torres said. “I don’t know if that’s true. I don’t believe it, but I think it’s just a different way for it to be ingested.”

During interrogation, police say the brothers stated that they were serving up to 1,000 people each week.
