STURBRIDGE (CBS) – State Police made a huge marijuana bust Saturday in Sturbridge.

Troopers pulled over a 2011 Toyota Sienna for failing to keep right, speeding, and an unsafe lane change on Route 84 eastbound near the tolls.

The Trooper who stopped the car noticed a strong smell of pot coming from the inside the car and called for back-up.

A search turned up 159 pounds of marijuana.
