NORTH CAROLINA - TABOR CITY, NC (WECT) – A construction worker in Columbus County made an interesting discovery near a prison recently, when he came across a trash bag with 20 bags of marijuana in it along with four cell phones and two phone charges.

Authorities say the marijuana has a street value of hundreds of dollars, but inside the prison, it could have gone for thousands.
