Big weed bust on I-30

Hopkins County – State Troopers seized 50 pounds of marijuana and took two Tennessee men to jail earlier this week after a routine traffic stop along Interstate 30 near Sulphur Springs. The incident began just before 8pm Tuesday when the two men were stopped for speeding. After displaying nervous behavior, the trooper asked if he could search the vehicle, and the men said yes, but only the front part of the car. After identifying a suspicious odor, the trooper searched the trunk under probable cause and found 50 pounds of marijuana.

Both men were arrested under felony possession charges.
