SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — Perhaps it was a case of the munchies.

Police in northeastern Pennsylvania say an alleged pot dealer tried to destroy evidence by eating a marijuana plant.

The Times-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/Sk4LmI ) that 33-year-old Jeremiah Carmody faces several drug-related charges following events on Monday in Scranton.

Police say Carmody tried to eat the plant after authorities went to his house to serve a warrant.

Authorities ended up seizing the remains of the plant, four pounds of marijuana, digital scales, $2,600 in cash and drug paraphernalia.

Carmody was in Lackawanna County Prison awaiting arraignment Monday night. It wasn't immediately clear Tuesday if he had a lawyer.
