WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The three bags of marijuana at the police storage facility in Wichita had been torn open. Some was missing. At first blush, it seemed a clear case of evidence tampering.

Wichita police duly investigated and on Thursday they told reporters they've even identified some suspects. Well, sort of.

Police Lt. Doug Nolte says mice chewed into the bags of marijuana from some 2009 cases, nested in it and ate some.

Nolte says, ``We've got some mice that are stoners.''

But he also says it's not that uncommon because marijuana has a strong odor that attracts animals.

Police took photographs, resealed the bags and reweighed the evidence. An exterminator has been contacted.

Meanwhile, the suspicious rodents remain at large. No charges have been filed.
