Marijuana that was to be used as evidence in a Long Island drug case has disappeared from a truck that was transporting it to a Pennsylvania crime lab. 



Marc Gann, head of a committee examining problems at the Nassau County police crime lab, tells Newsday the district attorney's office told him a shipping box on the FedEx truck had been opened, the marijuana removed and the box resealed.     

It's the latest fallout from the shutdown of the Nassau crime lab. A national accrediting agency has put it on probation for failing to meet protocols deemed essential to proper handling of evidence.

Since its closing in February, evidence has been shipped to a lab in Willow Grove, Pa.     

FedEx is looking into the possible theft. The DA's office says it's investigating.
