    Getting away with a bed full of marijuana was nothing but a pipe dream.

    Some people like to store their money under a mattress. A Massachusetts man preferred to keep other valuable green in his bed.

    Hung The Truong of Quincy, Massachusetts, was charged with cannabis trafficking after Illinois state troopers stopped his U-Haul truck and found 102 pounds of marijuana in a box spring and a hide-a-bed couch inside, reports the LaSalle News Tribune.

    An officer pulled over Truong's vehicle in Peru, Illinois, for failure to signal and improper lane usage, according to State Police. The officer noted the smell of cannabis and searched the truck.

    Inside a black convertible couch, police found 17 wrapped packages of cannabis where a mattress should have been, according to the report. A hollowed-out box spring contained 79 packages of cannabis.

    Truong, 40, appeared in court Monday, where bond was set at $2 million.
