112 lbs of Marijuana Seized in OKC Traffic Stop
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Authorities say two men were arrested after a traffic stop in which police found more than 100 pounds of marijuana.
The Oklahoman reports that the pair was pulled over near Interstate 35 on Sunday for a traffic violation.
A police report says authorities searched their vehicle and discovered two cardboard boxes containing 100 bundles of compressed marijuana — or about 112 pounds of the drug.
The men were taken to the Oklahoma County jail on complaints of trafficking illegal drugs for distribution.
