Texas DPS finds 107 pounds of pot during panhandle traffic stop
A Texas DPS trooper seized over 100 pounds of cannabis after a traffic stop in Potter County.
The trooper stopped a 2013 Volkswagen Passat heading eastbound on Interstate 40 near Bushland and a search of the vehicle turned up 107 packages of marijuana. DPS valued the haul at $484,000.
Twenty-two year-old Vianca Lizeth Casas of Livingston, California, and 28-year-old Carlos Castrejon of Winton, California, were placed under arrest for possession of a controlled substance.
Authorities suspect the dried flowers were being transported from Livingston, California to Dallas.
The Texas panhandle has seen quite a few busts of people bringing in cannabis from California.
