Man arrested for pot plant in back seat of a car

LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) — Lockport Police had their detective work made easy on Thursday morning when they noticed a car with a potted pot plant in the back seat.

Officers investigating a suspicious car had to look twice at the potted plant growing in the back seat of the Lockport vehicle, eventually coming to the conclusion that it indeed was a pot plant.

“Last we heard, it is still illegal!” police wrote in a Facebook post.

Police confiscated the pot and arrested the owner of the car for that, and a number of other charges. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
