Two arrested in bizarre drug bust along I-30


Titus County – Nearly 80 pounds of marijuana were discovered Wednesday following a stop on Interstate 30 in Titus County.

But while State Trooper Jose Osornio was in the process of arresting the driver another vehicle reportedly drove up and a man got out and stole the vehicle containing the drugs.

A pursuit would ensue and the man was captured after he wrecked out on FM 1001.

His name was not released, nor was that of the original driver, a 35-year-old woman from Wisconsin. No major injuries were reported.
