Some mighty mellow mice are lurking somewhere in the Wichita Police Department’s evidence and property building downtown.

Evidence clerks at the building at 410 N. Waco discovered that mice had chewed into and nested in three bags of marijuana connected to cases from 2009, Lt. Doug Nolte said. The clerks said it was evident the mice ate some of the marijuana, according to a police report.

“We’ve got some mice that are stoners,” Nolte said.

The clerks weighed the marijuana that was left and resealed it. The exterminator that is contracted for the building has been contacted, Nolte said.
