TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - When you return that rental car, make sure to remove all your personal belongings.

Someone in south-central Idaho didn't and now law enforcement officers are investigating the discovery of 27 pounds of marijuana in a rental vehicle left at the Twin Falls airport.

The city issued a statement Friday saying dispatchers received a call from Avis Rent-A-Car reporting a vehicle and been returned to the Joslin Field Magic Valley Regional Airport on Sunday with a large amount of marijuana in it.

Police officers say the marijuana was found in vacuum sealed bags in a duffel bag.
