ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque resident David Ung didn’t forget his luggage, cell phone or plane ticket in a returned rental car Tuesday.
Instead, police say he forgot 139 pounds of “high grade” marijuana — packed in several black trash bags — in the trunk of a rental car he had returned to Hertz Rent a Car near the airport.
Aviation police officers told an Albuquerque Police Department officer that 40-year-old David Ung dropped off a car, but returned, saying he left a bag inside the vehicle.
By the time he returned, police had already found several black trash bags full of marijuana, packaged in 124 individual heat-sealed clear bags, according to a criminal complaint filed in Metropolitan Court Wednesday.
Ung was detained at the scene, and refused to talk to officers without an attorney.
He was charged with possession of drugs with intent to distribute and booked into the county jail on $10,000 bail.
