A Utah man drew suspicion on Monday by trying to claim large boxes containing 45 pounds of marijuana from the offices of a hotel where he was not even a guest, ending the day of arrest, a the police announced.

Instead of handing the boxes to the man, hotel staff contacted police, said Jeremy Warnick, director of communications and media relations for Cambridge Police. This prompted the man to flee into a stairwell, which gave him access to a parking lot. When officers arrived at the Memorial Drive hotel, two searched the garage level by level and eventually found Stanley Suojanen, 39, hidden in the back of a rental car under a blanket.

As of Monday night, it was unclear if the man was using his own rental car to hide, if he was acting alone, or how exactly the scheme worked to shoot from his home in Cedar Hills, Utah.

A search of three boxes revealed more than several bags of marijuana, with an estimated market value of between $ 75,000 and $ 100,000 – the boxes also contained nearly $ 4,000 in cash, four cell phones, several keys and a card prepaid debit cards have been recovered, Warnick said.

Suojanen faces a charge of possession for the purpose of dispensing a Class D drug.

He was also arrested in 2007 while driving through Nebraska in a motorhome stuffed with nearly a ton of marijuana – 93 balls, some of which were wrapped as gifts, with an estimated market value of around $ 3 million. dollars, according to ABC News.
