Marijuana Shipment Found in Septic Tank Truck

Even the Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs show isn't likely to touch this one:

A Tucson man was busted on Wednesday after state troopers found 700 pounds of marijuana in the septic tank truck he was driving.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety stopped the truck on Interstate 19 near Tubac and found numerous wrapped bundles (hopefully watertight) in the tank -- along with human waste. It was quite the disgusting mess, confirms DPS spokesman Bart Graves.

Leornard Salcido, 24, faces various marijuana-related charges.
