SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say employees at a Florida thrift store found 5 pounds of marijuana while sorting clothing donations.  

WTVT-TV reports the Sarasota thrift store workers were sorting clothing donations when they discovered a brown paper bag inside a plastic tote.
A Sarasota Police report says an employee noticed the bag early last week but put it aside until Thursday. It says the employee then cut a small hole in the bag and called police.
It's unclear if the donation of the roughly 2,100 grams of vacuum-sealed marijuana was intentional.
