130 Pounds Of Pot Found On Truck During Stop On I-44

From the SN-L, December 9, 2009:

A Highway Patrol officer arrested a tractor-trailer driver Wednesday on Interstate 44 after stopping him and finding 130 pounds of marijuana in the sleeper berth.

The trooper stopped the driver for a lane violation on I-44 at the 84 mile marker in Greene County. Because the driver’s logbook was inaccurate and he seemed nervous, the trooper asked to search the vehicle. Permission was granted, and the trooper found the marijuana.

The driver is not listed in online court records as having been charged, so the News-Leader is not naming him. The Highway Patrol news release said he was from Mississippi.
