Looks like a different kind of snow was left on the streets of Cicero.

Acting on a tip, Cicero police found 280 pounds of cocaine left on the street yesterday. The tipster called to report that some folks were moving boxes into a van, when one of the boxes fell and broke, exposing the contents. The folks responsible for hauling the cocaine into the van simply left the rest on the street and got out of Dodge before police could arrive on the scene.

Cicero police are investigating, no arrests have been made.
